He didn't want the outdrives to fall off while in tow and hit another vehicle The rope must have been extra security

I beleive its being pickedup in
the morning to be returned to Cal
Nick good to hear your still around, The boat is returning to
the Pismo Beach Ca. area.
I have talked to the person buying
the boat and gave him JONS number
He is a gear head so it looks like
the old Girl is in good hands.
Its a funny story how it all came
around.
Hell I got a call from the people
who own the 1st 38ft Wellcraft
Scarab, The one Linda Lovelaces Sister owned.

I rememebr the Monday morning reports also....Hell I felt so bad one time that I told him to bring it to me at DSM and told him whatever he needed i would only charge him for actual parts used. I just told him the shop is all yours but we have to be out by 6 am before the indy guys show up. I think we even found most of the stuff used at the shop and I just gave it to him hell it was in our boneyard pile.

Nick ol buddy I couldn't resist hope all is well PM with some digits so we can talk bro....

Mike how ya doing pal? Are you ready for another case of the 3 am what ifs. Holler at me when you have a chance bro.

Man that is a damn shame if that boat is that bad of a mess. The wireing was the worst thing that I could say about the boat.

There was that time that Stinson also let us in there to pull the motor tell something like 3am so that I could replace the tail shaft bearing

Lot of funny stories about that boat.

Jon

The Buyer still has the check in
his pocket and is looking for a
28 to 30 Ft. Used Scarab.
I sent him info about OSO and he
is now a member, Im not sure if he
will join this thread.
He wants to look at the photos by
PhantomChaos to see if they are
the same he received.
Sean thanks for the call and I will wait and let you brake the
ne about you NEW deal, And like I
said "I have nothing to do with the 2003 ETTORE BOAT" Couldn't
beleive what I saw on Speedvision
at the Savanahaha race.
Jon I think the (Buyer) will be in
contact with you and tell you how
much damage was done since you and
I were at Nicks Boat last.

I too miss the Slickness Reports! I think Nick certainly helped "shape" the board and we all lived vicariously through his small boating dilemas. Great to see you still puruse the board sir.....
