Default Hobknobbing with Reggie and the Pres.

A friend of mine in Maine docks his boat directly next to George Bush Sr's. boat. He goes down to the dock yesterday and there's George Sr. with his body gaurds standing around George's new Fountain fish boat with tripple Merc 225s.

George walks over to my buddy and says "like my new boat?" My buddy is like "man, who wouldn't!?). Anyway, he and George Sr. chat for a minute and guess who pops up out of the new Fountain and walks over to chat? Reggie himself!!!! All decked out in black leather cold weather gear and gold anchor chains. My buddy got to meet and chat with Reggie while he's chatting with the ex president!! Pretty cool eh?

George Sr. had just taken delivery on his new Fountain and Reggie was there to personally deliver the boat to George.

Cool stuff, wish I was there. I'll have pics of the new presidential fish-fast soon.

Did the Secret Serivce guys get a new Fountain too? I've been going to Kennebunkport with the family since I was a kid. I can remember seeing him heading out in the original Fidelity Cig with another very similar unnamed Cig following close behind.

No, the Secret Service guys excort Bush in three rigged-out RIBs. Heavy duty RIBs. Plus, one or two Secret Service guys are always in Bush's boat.

So, that's where all the attention is going...because it seems no one else can get any.

Nonetheless, I think that's cool that you were hangin' out with GB Sr. and Reggie.
