Sh$%it! I hate to do this…

Due to uncontrolled circumstances which is called (JOB), I will not be able to make it today.
Boss just called : Emergency, no vacation for JS today. Have to go at work NOW. I take a few minutes to fill those lines...

Job = No choice = $ = boating. No job, no boat.
I am really disappointed. Bad luck is still after me, guess my boat will sink next week!

As for the T-shirts, still interested, if GL can pick one large and one small for me, I would appreciate otherwise, I will survive. Hope to meet all of you on July’s milk run.

I hope you guys will have a really great time. Have a nice and safe trip.
GL, I apologize my friend, once again, I can’t work with the plans... We’l hook up as often as last year if the sh#%?#it can get off my back!

I prefer to call it "Fiberglass Challenged" and lets be clear this is only for this particular weekend. We need to get back home early Sunday so Christine can get to her cousins baby shower. Rather than miss the weekend we compromised that if we didnt have the boat to deal with we could go up tonight and leave Sunday morning.

Hotboat report; Another late night and its really coming along nicely.
Without a doubt the best "re-built" scarab out there.

We are out of the running to.... we did try but between the Bullet carbs not running right and the fact that we haven't put it in the water yet to get used to it. then the trip to Long Island to get the Kryptonite which we are putting to motor in today and tomorrow we are not going to make it.....

Bob, Shane.
hope you have a great time you both have done alot of work. Please take pic's for us poor souls that will miss out......

P.S. Bob I told you we wanted 4 Tee's and I won't leave you hanging on that order. so just let us know how to send you the $.

Thumbs up Re: 2nd annual Demo Race on Lake George N.Y.

We had a nice time, met as many as we could. Once we finally found an open launch, we were golden. Thanks Bob for the escort, Thanks GL for another escort, had a great time altogether. Would have stayed last night but the weather was a little to chilly. Got that maiden camper night in. Good thing we planned on staying cause its hard to keep up with GL. Gonna start calling him pop.
Hope the run took place, hope the weather held and all were safe. Nice to meet you Shane, Tantrum, Otis311, and everyone else. Thanks to everyone for your hospitality.

The run went well and believe it or not NO RAIN WHATSOEVER! It did rain at my house, but south of Bolton Landing it was DRY! We had a BLAST and everyone was safe. There was some unfortunate carnage. Frank Damico smoked a U-Joint he believes. Boomer had an oil line let go but shut her down with no damage other than a messy bilge. HotBoat unfortunately had steering issues that could not be resolved so he never launched. But he WILL BE BACK and with a VENGEANCE I assure you. I got to view the engine compartment of that bad boy today, and let me tell you, that boy can do some boat work! WOW! It came out GRRRRREAT!

There were several no shows, likely because of the weather, but we still had a really good turn out with some serious hardware. GLH and Otis311. thanks for the rides in those wave monsters! Those TIGERS EAT THE ROUGH FOR LUNCH (grrrrrrrr) and look AWESOME doing it! You guys have some SWEET RIDES!

excavator did an AWESOME job driving! The first turn or two were a bit "interesting" but he got it down quick, and we were working well together in short order. I got to drive Chuck's 30 Spectre Saturday night, what a kick ass ride that is! Chuck you have one sweet F-ING boat dude!

We had so many laughs and so much fun, there are countless stroies to tell. I am exhausted and don't have the time right now, but I am sure that others will fill you all in. Waterheater, it was great to meet you and the Mrs. Sorry we missed you Saturday. cowisl, great to see you again, where were you Saturday? Hope to see you soon.

Thanks to Otis311 for all your hard work and the boat ride today, to excavator, Mrs. excavator, mini-me, Tantrum and Christine, Hot Boat and Jessica, John and Denise for being the best group of friends one could ask for, GLH, KayLee and Christopher for the ride it your awesome new machine, Chuck for letting me drive your kick ass ride and for the entertainment at the arcade , and all the others that helped to make it a great weekend. You guys ROCK!

A blast as usual,
Thanks for all that organized it was terrific fun.
Had a great time with all the old and new acquaintances, and it was nice seeing all the hardware.
I think some people took pictures, looking forward to seeing those.
BTW the bilge pump works! Man it rained last night.

Yup I put them on your father's rig and your bro kept them when I had to get K-Lee and Christopher Friday. Keep them up front of your rig I'll get them if you get up here or at worst on July 31st.

Had a blast
Thanks Hot Boat for the place to crash,Chuck for the ride in Spectre during the Demo Race, Ottis for putting it all together and Shane for the blast up the lake.
Lots of laughs were had and as usual had a great time hanging out with Ottis, GLH, Excavator, Shane, Johnny Venomous and their families and all the others.
The lake is beautiful and cant wait to get back up.
