Did she get a bruise?
And take shorter strokes in wavy situations she won't fly off.

LOL, GL. Its a rental crapper anyhow.

The "she" on the boat was confortable in the bolster next to me. She was NOT happy when I launched off a Dinner Boat wake on the Potomac next to National Airport, and nearly turned a Bayliner into chum. Oh well.

They splinted the leg, but couldn't set it. That was $180. We went to our vet this morning and they are going to set it. That's $480. Then he has to get the cast replaced twice. More $$$. At this rate, I can't afford to go boating.

Don't feel bad Cord, it could have been worse.

It was the most traumatic event in my life so far. Oh yeah, spent over $1000 on a free puppy.

Here he is just before the accident.

Yup...they can be sneaky chicken$hit turds and hit your posessions when your not looking It can escalate into a war that nobody wins. Hopefully they realize the futility of it and will pick on someone else.

It isn't going to escalate Indy, but I know what you mean.

I have four CCTV cameras, good locks, a great safe for my guns and stuff, alarm system (including garage) and have a new fence coming. Meanwhile, I am looking at new homes. Time to go.

I want to go to an area that I don't have to wear a sidearm.

Sorry to hear about that, Craig and Nancy!

Got roped into taking my family out on Saturday (a bunch of non-boaters)...Mom, Stepfather, and my Mom's cousin and her husband from Cleveland (Donna and Ron). I thought the cousin and her husband were going to be the problem....wrong!

Last weekend the top of the cabin door came off (screws were too short). So, on my way down to Cobb Island on Friday, I stop off and get a dozen #4 3/4 inch SS screws to put the door back on. Saturday morning we were up at 6:00am to get fuel and launch the boat and didn't have time to put the door back on. So, we get everyone loaded in the boat and head out....my Stepfather decides that he wants to try to keep his hat on so he stands in the stairwell, shielded from the wind by the windscreen...normally we have the door latched shut and I really didn't want him standing there. Well, he looses his balance and falls back and busts one of the plastic cabinet doors....and kept leaning against the panel and flipping off the main switch for the cabin.

Getting a price now for the door replacement. The good part was we let Ron drive and made his weekend. Donna sat on the back hatch (didn't like this and prayed that the USCG wouldn't see us) and held on for dear life with a smile as wide as the River...she was having too much fun sitting up there, I didn't have the heart to tell her to get down. Said she felt like she had gotten a face lift from the wind. Then I asked her how she thought Ron felt with 1500HP under his control....her answer, "Better than sex!"

It could have been worse....but glad it wasn't.

Hope everyone had a great 4th.

P&B
