Default Going to get myself in trouble with this one

When this board started I was involved fairly close to the beginning. I ended up forgetting my password so I just #2 but regardless my posts are low, but I've watched for a while. Even then it amazed me how freakin' sensitive people on this board are. I mean c'mon. Most people on this board (even with the smaller boats) have something 99.9 % of the population envys and wishes they had. What is the big deal? I am a former Corvette owner who has listened to all the "small unit" commments etc., but after half the stuff on here, why wouldn't people think that? Every time someone starts a thread even remotely stating something other than the politically correct answer..(ie. a magazine gave an Active Thunder a bad review, a member mentioned that Keith Eickert Motors might have a change, a Fountain has a beak, etc. etc.) there ends up being so much name calling and finger pointing it is absolutely pathetic. It really doesn't do much for our sport/hobby/career/etc. for everyone to see this rediculous crap. In all the Poker Runs I've been in or visited, I've never had any conversations even remotely as childish and pathetic as I've seen recently. Perhaps noone could hide behind a screen name, but I honestly believe that 99.9% of the people involved in offshore boats are there because they love the boats, speed, comraderie, and not because they all have small penises!!

I think the Eickert thread brought this on.....

Anyway, I'm sick of guys with $500,000 boats arguing over God-knows-what....

I find that boating is NO different than the drag racing world.
It's a run what ya (brung) < slang) world.

But after the race we all stop and wait for the loser to hang out(and if you are with HI-PERF 2000 you drink NON alcoholic beers) And we would help each other in anyway we can, regardless if my boat only does 70Mph with no beak and your does 120 with a beaK.

Very few people mean to offend with words on here I would say, It's all in OSO fun!

This board keeps me from going POSTAL

I think alot of it lately has had to do with cabin fever and the fact that many of us have been unable to go boating. I know that I can't wait any longer. It's going to be 80 today and at lunchtime, I'm going to get a stomach ache and go splash the boat for that first run of the year

P.S. It won't be long and we can all complain about stuff breaking and spending all of our $ on gas!!!

I think you're being too sensitive.
