Talking Re: What do your passengers do while underway?

I laugh my a$$ off when they try to use the head while at speed. I make them clean it up. Second funniest thing is watching all their stuff fly out of the boat. Glasses, towels, bathing suits, underwear, etc...One guy lost his shorts that were laying loose in the cockpit. His wallet was in the pocket Third funniest is them biitching about their bruises from being banged around.

My wife is a trooper, but she needs to take a boating class. I teach her knots, but it doesn't stick. My 7 yr old boy falls asleep between poker run stops. You should see his head bobble around. Priceless!

Actually, for being WAY out on the ragged edge more than a few times in my life, being in Gary's boat was definately the cats ass.

Brian,

That was one of the best days on the water I've ever had. You did come back for more after the short run from Monty's ... couldn't pass on a run to Gilbert's

I knew later that day we were in for a wild ride when Titos, now solo in the OSO Gladiator, looked over and asked if we wanted to run back on the outside from Gov't Cut to Haulover ... he had the look of 'I'll show this Cali boy' .... WOW, it was on like Donkey Kong ... it was BIG out there(big is relative) .... I think I earned a little respect for the Westside

Glad you had a good time

G

In my old cat, they used to hold on for their lives.
In the cruiser, they make me drinks.

My crew generally make a mess on the upholstery.

Still, it stops the vinyl from drying out and cracking.

When we are stationery, they are usually trying to kill me.

Gary, that was awesome. I am hoping to have Monsoon in FL for this winter.

My crew usually holds on for dear life and complains they got beat up when we get back to the dock. Hopefully next year it will be better..... Bigger boat in my future....

Other than that, I have a bumper sticker on the passenger side that say's; "Yes it's fast. No, you can't drive it!"
