Yeah, really slow...when it's filled with water!

I've been busy with work, Reed.
No time for the ladies.

Worked on the boat all day yesterday but did manage to go for a blast on one of my Harleys today.

Did a couple mt bike rides last week in the am but too damn hot for anything serious!

I've been a good boy and riding my bike religiously... I do not know why... other than so the next time I go out...it doesn't hurt as much... I did my usual 25 mile ride up La Tuna canyon and back through LaCanada and Glendale... I did it early this morning before it got too hot. I did the same ride last week and it must have been over 100... I about heat stroked out half way up the canyon... I can relax for a few days now... my next scheduled ride is Wednesday....

Here the dope on it.......I've heard more about this, but here's the published story. By the way, it was a twin engine Fountain......you can the beak. He bought the boat the day before.

I cant leave the house unless i have my handheld in my "bag of goodies" which includes rain gear and first aid stuff among other things.......some people are just morons!

Comical! Oh well, what a waste of an otherwise perfectly good boat.... Anyone know who that was? Couldn't that have turned the bow into the wind? Not that hard to do if you have an anchor..

Pretty sure they ripped off a drive somehow. I'm sure it had pumps, but were they operational? Even if they were....would they keep up with a drive ripped off?

Not having a VHF is lame. A lot of performance boats out here just don't have them on the boat, but they should at least have a hand-held. Wouldn't ya think!!!!????
