a 8 foot inflatable row boat 6 years old
we moved to clevelandsoon after, then back to where we are now, 1/2 miles from the marina, which might be why i like boats more than cars....

still have that but "borrow" (they call it stealing) the parents baja.

Job? First was at the marina puming gas, second was at a restaurant, third was promotion at the marina to a restaurant worker.

currently un employed

looking to get a job pushing in carts at the supermarket, by myself, outdoors, good physical workout job.

Oh yeah, on the side ive been selling pirated DVD's

O.K. 7yrs old 6' raft.
10yrs old, made dad drive me to the lumber store baught 2, 4x8' sheets of plywood, my own saw, a box of 500 roofing nails and a tube of calk. 2 days later and no more calk or nails the little masterpiece was done.I made one paddle voyage across the pond and didn;t make it back. To this day I have no idea where the water came from but it came fast I think all the nails weighed it down. anyways after that I stopped building race Now I have a 24' Excalibur Offshore 2 seater. its old but I love it. I'm 22 and am a wholesale parts rep by career, but for real money i am a mechanic/construction any any other side job that brings the cash
