Hey Dave,

PM me with a phone number. I want to ask about some glass work. I'm either selling my ride or having it re-tabbed and repowered over the off season. It floats, and it runs. But....

Must have been some serious chit....
I wasn't down there, but
my boat must have been at ground zero.
Never been that dirty, ever.

yea batty it was nuts out there. i dont know what those big frikn m200's were but those were just not right i think the guards had there hands full that night. heck we just scattered so they couldnt get all of us.


fund razor- i can look at you boat in a week or so. i have to go out of town this weekend and wont be back till wednesday but after that i will be a regular out at LP. by the way i pulled my one motors down sunday and found a busted valve and it took out my head an block. must have floated it last year when i blew the prop off. ordered the new replacment and it should be here thursday. my mechanic (Tizbad4 with the cat) is putting it in so it should be ready when i return. damn . . . its already july and im out several grand and havent even goten it wet yet. GOD i love boating. why dosent somebody just kick me in the nuts take all my money an call it even. . . sure would be easier and quicker


OK OK i know mt trailer is a POS but it only has to make it to the marina once a year. but i promise i am rebuilding it this summer when my boat is resting happily at my dock i will most certainly post pics of it, maybe even another poll

I think it looks good, you would have to change seating to fill in the windscreen or you could not see. Cut it down a bit but they are nice to have. Tint it black on the sides or even white. Thank god the trailer stays on land. Those CCs are great solid boats. I like it.

actually that is one of the reasons i havent done it yet. i would have to make it about half that height to look good and i have had mixed thoughts on doing that. last year i was running about 45 after dusk and had a duck bounced off my windshield right in front of me. if it wasnt there the duck would have hit me head on. i didnt even see the thing, i only saw duck ass an feathers out of the corner of my eye as it just whizzed by my head, nialed the windshield pretty good to. also i have a camper style top that i can run with up if i get stuck out in the rain. if i fill in the windshield no more of that an lemmie tell ya thats a nice option to have in the great lakes for sure. i think i will try the dark tint though, thats a good idea and might give it that extra somthing

Ok, Dave... it must have been the M200s. That would explain alot.
Batty, you friggin bastage... I'll never get that boat clean again. Next year on the 4th I'm frickin covering it.

Dave, next week it is. Bring as much money as you can, and I'll wear my boots. (I have size 13.) BTW... just spent 2,500 myself and now I have a punk port engine.
