Yeah. We tried to buy Ray lunch then even dinner and he laughed it off and refused. Absolutely wouldn't take anything. I guess it was repayment for the times I've done the same.

Mo, did you ever see the movie "Pay It Forward"? Hit Blockbuster and rent it this week if you haven't. Glad to hear everything worked out okay in the end.

On the upside you got it fixed, met some good people who helped, and you're still on vacation. . . . . which means we'll probably see pictures of you boating all this week while we're breaking our butts at work right?

When I broke my upper gears a few years ago, a guy in a Formula towed me in. Towboats US was backed up that day and was going to take them 2-3hrs. A severe T-storm was in the forecast to hit soon and he got us back to dock in time. When I offered to fill his tank, and give him some cash, he refused. I insisted, but he still refused. He said "Just return the favor by helping out the next guy broke down on the river"......"Who knows, It could be me".

While we're on that note, anyone know on the board know him? This was several years ago. He said he hangs out in Mattawoman, 23-25' Formula. I think his name was David Riggles, or maybe David Riddles. I'd like to buy him a beer someday.
