Your boat your own deal.. most of the time people ( friends) will prob screw it up anyway..Its best you do it yourself then you dont get pissed off at anyone.. Its like asking for gas money ( yea I got 20 bucks ) You know what you can do with that!! I would go somebody in the real boating community with be there to help out if needed....

My Ole Lady or should I say, deck hardware.
She seems to know how to piss me off with this on /off business. Hot/cold is more like it. Pain in my @ss.
Well, she is not comming to jacksonville. Who hoo, Yes.

What I always say "My Friends are always there when they need Me" Don't sweat it, People that are really interested in it (your boat/boating) will show it by being helpful, if not, as long as you are having fun thats what really counts, you can't make other people have fun....

Depending on how much she weighs you should run a mile or two faster. lol. I'm looking forward to seeing your Bertram Kurt. Glad you changed your mind about the run.

Thats beautiful Nick, did you copy and paste this or just make it up? Your last line is brilliant and pretty much sums it up. Personally, I like to take friends who rarely or never get a chance to go on a boat. However, the ones that want to go all the time should kick in for gas & beverages. I wouldnt expect them to wash & wax the boat, but its always nice to have a hand unloading coolers, trash, etc at the end of the day.

Completely agree. There's a big difference between a guest and a freeloader. Good friends fall in to the former, and the rest in the latter.

And I love taking newbs out for their first ride. I think it's almost as satisfying for me as it is for them. You'd be hard-pressed to find too many people at my marina that I haven't taken out one time or another. It's all part of the fun.
