Default When Bad is (Really) Good

I think we've all had days on the water like this one, http://boatermouth.com//index.php?vi...ntent&Itemid=8.

A good attitude and perspective help, as does being with good people.

Thanks Joe and Tony for a memorable day far away from home. What a great day.

If you haven't had a day like that, you haven't been boating long enough, or frequent enough. Sh!t happens - Even more so with a performance boat it seems.

Sorry to hear your boating was cut short. Hopefully you guys did all the breaking and the boats in tip top form for Key West.

Still have that seat open for you on thurs if your interested. It was a great day but the day was made by the people on the boat. By the way its Garciga not Cigar, LOL. Boat is in paint shop now being touched up then off to Cobra power to take care of the gremlins that found us in Alabama. Hope we left them there too!!!

Joe,
You and the partner Cig "Vindictive" made both Matt and myself's weekend.

It was East meets West and the NJPPC gathering in Alabama to Pensacola.

It was great to see all of you guys there although it seemed we were like fish out of water with the difference between how Poker Runs are ran in the south...

As you said, the day was made great by the company you are with.
Thanks Matt for your help throughout the weekend!
Thanks Joe as well as Vinny and Jason for making the weekend what it was ! An ADVENTURE !!!

Thanks, Joe. Dave P. slapped me around earlier on the name issue for Randy Garcia. Sometimes my fingers don't listen to my brain, and between your Cigarette and Randy's real name (sorry Randy) ... it came out Cigar. Word salad in my head. Corrected and should appear correctly in the next 30 minutes or so.

Going to have to pass on Key West this year, much as that bums me out. My editor, Jason, will be there so try to find him and make sure he buys you and Tony several drinks.

Watching you and Tony work together as a team when things went south was a treat. Thanks for your hospitality.

We are proud to have Joe as a member of Ft Myers Offshore ( FMO ). He is one of the really good guys that just keeps on smiling. No wonder he was smiling the day that Jayboat caught him on this FMO run from a helicopter !! His Cigarette is just awesome and he knows how to drive it. Hope to see you on our Thanksgiving weekend run, Joe.

Nice article, Matt.

Bob
