Totally off topic but wondering where you boat? Glenwood is a nice area, considered moving there at one time.

it was great here in the beginning. when the 1% macho left to start another site , it was better here again but they came back .then started picking on new guys or people who asked for help. its sad. but I have met some great humble people on here in person so its worth 50 bucks a year to stay. my excuse is I just had my 7th surgery in the last 5years and need 2 more. so I doped up at night on pain meds. so a year from now I should be done for a few years. later

I love boating. I replaced my engines last year but didn't get them in til mid July. At the end of the season, I hit the hour meters and they read 56 hours each. I try to give everyone on OSO the benefit of the doubt, but after a while you can tell when posers come on and try to be something they are not. You are the type of boater/poster OSO needs. Glad to have you here.

Come to think about it, this thread has already been visited by none other than the infamous Jim Darr. Someone should probably compare his IP to PR388's.

LOL, I hadn't thought of that one, now that would be funny if good old Darr was 388! What's Darr up to, about 150 different screen names now?
