Hey Jimbo
I kinda like these, "OLD OBSOLETE TURDS", "LUMPY OLD RESIN BUCKETS" myself. I like the weight, the style, and the HANDLING of these OLE TURDS. I'd like to see some of these new boats keep up with yourself and Nauti Kitty in some of that Lake Erie water on a "GOOD" day. Ya know my boat was originally named "FIGHTER SQUADRON-CODE NAME: TONTO", but I think I'll give ya'll the stripes for being the airborn crowd! If we don't hurry up and get married, I don't know if my boats EVER going to hit the water this year.

Hey, BTW, what are ya'll doing this weekend? We're driving to Chicago on Sat. and will be there 'till next Fri. maybe we can get together.

Robert

I do remember a Gladiator and several Older Cigs trying to catch,(and never did) my 7yr old Resin Bucket all day long on this same Poker Run,,,

and if you think that those light Potato Chip Hulls will ever run a Lake Erie Northeaster, your just plain Nuts!!

and i would not put Mr. Wicked One to the test if I was you,,, He has been out there for 3 or 4 yrs with the Saber and I have never yet seen the boat that will Leave that old Turd behind !!!!

Having expressed myself accordingly ,, I remain, RHC

Very well put

We have done a lot of poker runs and until this one never had the pleasure of hearing the roar of a Gladiator so up close and personal Donna

This run gave allot of opportunity to meet and talk with many people. Everybody was great and Debbie and I had a ball. Maybe next time I will have the Chi-Town Hustler there. Should be back in action by LOTO shoot-out.

Great hardware at the run. Many nice Cigs as well as Sabre(s). RHC, you are one crazy dude. Missed you guys at the bay and island. Cell phones were dead on Sunday.
