Much more extreme weather than I can ever remember. No boat this year, just sold ours, now on the hunt for a newer used model. With the price of fuel, good summer to be without a boat. Notice fewer muscle boats out on the water and when they are, they aren't getting on them as much. I don't blame them, dammed EXXON SUCKS!! But, they just reported yesterday record earnings... blame it on the arabs... RIGHT!!! Been out a few times with friends, nailed each time with high winds and big seas or rain. We were just down in Ocean City Md, beatiful week weather wise, but no boat....

Engine is IN! Tonight I'll run it on the hose and top everything off. If I let it run for a while, I may actually double my minutes this year!

got some good hours this year, but had my share of troubles, luckily most were minor and fixed while in the water.

I've got a nearly new set of clubs that have been used maybe three times in the last three years since I got into THIS foolishness.

I bought my boat in early January. The motors (525efi's) had 40 hours on them. The boat was 3000 miles away for 6 weeks and 300 miles away for another 6 weeks. As of this weekend, I am showing 120 hours without any mechanical downtime.

I had a fast run yesterday with BG1 and DMAN ... kwb and the Come Fly w/ Me boat got out a little late to run with us.

There's something to be said about spending the extra bucks up front for newer hardware ... not as many lump $um $uprises that consume a lot of fun and hours.

(in my whinyest voice) Ohhh wellllll ... I guess I put a few more hours on it today
