As far as boating and being bitter the whole boating thing for me has overall been a fantastic experience...although I grew up in Ontario's cottage lake country I was such a rabid motorcycle/car racing competitor/fan that I never really knew much about boating in anything larger than a 17' Hydrostream ripping up and down those 2 or 3 milers until a fateful day when my buddy took me out in his 24' cruiser on a hot summer afternoon.

I would bump into other racers here and there and they would say things like "I heard you have a.....boat?" (like wtf??) and Id say "Yeah I do and I LOVE IT you should try it, it is AWESOME!"

Im getting back into the cars now but primarily to give me something to do in the months from when the snow melts (late Mar/early April) till boating season (late May if we're lucky) and after boating season (a little after Labour Day till snow snow in mid Nov)...business does not allow me to get into sleds in the real winter.

My car buddies show up with their Camaros and Vettes and GTOs at my place on the first warm weekend in April (still snow out behind the garage) and their out with their toys and I still have almost two MONTHS before real good boating. So Ive done some soul searching and decided to keep the old Fountain (Ive redone the WHOLE thing and I know where Im at with it) not move up to bigger/faster and get this Nascar up and running....I'll always have a boat...Ive always said...."On a HOT summers day you CANNOT beat a boat!!" it is the place to be!

The only thing I can think of to be possibly "bitter" about in boating is the boat doesnt go as fast as I had hoped it would after the repower....I should have gone for the hotter cams and traded some of the TONS of bottom end it has with these cams for more top end HP and speed....I was pretty bummed over that...it is fixable though. Oh and I may be a little bitter about the economy that has caused some good friends to get out of boating...sux...D

While you're there working so hard, don't forget that you owe me a report on boat rental companies in the BVI's....
