My name's Bob Lloyd. I'm 51, been married for 25 years and have too many kids & grandkids to count.

Retired after 30 years in the corporate world and turned my hobby into a proffession. I own Full Throttle Marine. We do all kinds of boat/PWC repair to pay the bills and I do high performance boat work, custom engines, etc. for the fun of it. I live on Lake Travis just outside of Austin, Texas.

My personal boat is a Crownline powered by a fuel injected 600HP, 555 CID Merlin.

Too Old, we appear to have enough members in our age group. We should start a club within this club. “The Vintage Boaters.” Our motto will be, “An act of Congress protects us, so hands off Boardgods.” Just kidding Jeff!

p.s. Wes Smith, if you would like to join you will need to come out of the closet

OK, I'll come out of the's Macklin. Age:44. I am a project manager/senior architect for one of the largest architecture/engineering firms in VA. I was single for 13 years until I met Diane. Snatched her up a couple of years ago. She is a boat whore's dream girl. She even talked me into trading in the Baja for a bigger boat.

Last year's Xmas present: PQ 340 Vyper 'Only Child'

She bunks up at Marina Shores right between BillR and Vyper340.

Hold on now Wes...I think I qualify for this exclusive "geezers" club also...

Steve aka Indy:
45 years young and engaged to a wonderful girl, Diane. No kids, but have a cool Dalmation named "Indy" of course.

Drive a F350 PSD, and run the boat in western Long Island Sound unless I get the itch to tow the boat up the coast a bit and run the east end of Long Island.

Owner of a 2001 28' Nordic Heat with a "tiny" 496HO which is getting old real fast. Looking to re-power with a 540 or just move up to a used 33 Powerplay or Top Gun in a few years.

Graduate of Ohio State University in Real Estate and Urban Land Economics and am darn glad John Cooper is gone, time to start whuppin those rats up in Lansing (think this might get some terse replys LOL)

I'm currently a consultant in corporate relocation

Oh...and I've seen Wes's dog run...sheesh, she's faster than most of the pleasure crafts on the Sound.
