Mechanical Engineer by Degree. Currently I'm the Chief Technology Officer for a Commercial Software Development Company. Other notable jobs I've had are working at a large computer manufacturer here in Austin (Dude, you got a ....). Prior to that, I worked at a large energy company out of Houston that has been in the news quite a bit lately. Got out of there several years before it collapsed (thanks Mr. Lay for the worthless stock ).

1996 25' Donzi ZX. 454/BI. Like a lot of others, it's for sale and I'm shopping.

I'll be 38 next month. Happily married to my wife Leslie for 11-1/2 years (we started dating 14 years ago). No kids (I think that battle is about over). We have a 130 lbs. German Shepard Dog (Kimo). Other than working and boating, I play the guitar and love music. Last week, I went to a Journey concert (remember I'll be 38) and it had to be one of the top 5 concerts I've seen (and I've been to over a hundred).

Living to boat...boating to live.

31 looking for my future exwife. No kids that I know of...........thank god! 1996 27' Advantage Victory w/ 509 ci gentry twin turbo system (what a mouthful that was), 900.1 hp and 876 ft/lbs @ 5800 rpm and 916 ft/lbs @ 4400 rpm (bravo drives love that, and I haven't broke one in 2 years) dynoed. The boat is a celebrity, only one ever featured in Car Stereo Review Mag ( because of it's modest sound system).But that .1 hp REALLY makes the difference! Oh yeah been on a waterski @ 107 or radar, but can't do that anymore.......gettin old! The older I get the faster I was! Just askme about it next year!

Well, I'm 52. I now have my third Baja, a 1997 Baja 252 and looking for another boat 30' or larger. Leaning towards a cat this time.
I'm a Lieutenant on the fire department and a fire investigator. I also do investigations for the County Arson task force. I do most of my boating at Lake Cumberland Kentucky. I also have a home there. Married to Drema for 30 yrs with 1 daughter 1 son-in-law and 2 grandkids. My 7 y/o grandson can drive the boat better than I can. When I'm not boating, we do a lot of 4-wheeling.

SPECIAL THANKS GO TO BLOWN 1100 for being older than me

Hey guys, my turn,

I'm Jeff and 34. I've been married to Kim for almost 10 years, actually 10 years next month. We have 3 kids, Samantha 8, Jake 4, and Katie 3. All three of the kids love the boat. The boat is a 86 26 ft Nova II. I've had the boat for 3 years and have been basically restoring it. Because everthing seems to be falling apart.

My daytime job is an automotive designer. My area is bumpers. Mostly I create the surfaces from the stylist's vision called surface layout. They use these surfaces to make the molds. I have to take the info from a clay model, then design the surface so its smooth and the reflections look good. I also do alot of other design work too. You have seen and maybe have used some of my work. Hopefully it stayed on. But there is alot more to it than you may think.

On the side have a woodworking business, Reynolds Woodworking. I make country plate racks, shelfs, and things like that. One of my Plate Racks may be used in Victorian Magazine, or Better Homes and Gardens. I have a website (shameless plug) but I'm ashamed of it and have a better one in progress.
