High - Going all season without one engine or drive failure when all the naysayers told me I was crazy for buying a boat with triples. Now I wanna put blowers and chillers on it so I can break stuff like the rest of you guys.

Low - Splitting with the ex not once but twice. In July and again after Key West. I am turning that into a high though as my boat got a bunch of new bow ornament prospects for Christmas.

Highs..... Having my 81 year old Dad, tell me that our boat rides together are the time of his life. Watching the Heritage Coast OPA in East Tawas, on Fathers Day

Lows..... Not figuring out earlier in my life, that Dad would love Offshore boats this much. Having to put my best 4 legged Black Lab and friend, JessMan, down the morning of Fathers Day. God Bless those loyal companions.

Additional.... Thankful for my good health of many years, wonderful life and others who have allowed me into their friendship.

Buying my boat in March. Using it on the Illinois chain and the Three lakes Chain. Going on the River Shiver with it was a blast. My brother and his wife had a kid on November 25th. I became a first time Uncle. My best friend got married in October.
