That's why we only say that we have a Jersey Boyz SURPRISE. Up here in Jersey City, they teach that in the school system...shut your mouth and talk without moving your lips, and Deny everything!

Thumbs up Re: Lost Prop in Key West

Dave..... It's such a real shame that there are MORONS like this that try to benefit from other people's sorrows. Personally....... I don't really think this a$$hole has anything, and he's only trying to put salt on a wound.
Did you try looking with a diver in the area that some of the guys here said they seen it come off? I have a feeling that will be time well spent. Just my $.02

Augie...... I know you're not kiddin. If I did'nt know better, I'd swear that you grew up with me back in the ol' neighborhood, Cicero Ill. You just have a unique way of putting it. Do you remember the phone conversation we had on the thursday before the NYC poker run? I was with Chi-Town Hustler, and you were giving me directions on how to get to Liberty landing. I think Mark and I called you a few times when I thought we were lost.
Sorry we missed you at the run, I would've liked to have met you in person. Seem'd like we had alot of similiar thoughts.
THANKS for the PERFECT directions BTW. Frank

Frankie, my word is the only thing I have. Dave is a personal friend of mine and The Jersey Boyz...WHATEVER we can do to help him will be done. I think this Rat Ba$tard is as you say, adding salt , but with The Miami Boyz (Frankie and Albert) sturring things up down South something will give. On a nicer note anytime you need me you got the number.

I did some search and rescue drills in the harbor there in Key West for my rescue diver course during race weekend a couple years ago. You probably would have a hard time seeing a prop from the surface, but it wouldn't be too difficult to find scuba diving if it didn't bury itself in the bottom. Visibility is 10-20 feet once below the surface.

There are a lot of people who are in the diving industry down there who could have easily slipped in unnoticed and recovered it. I'll check with my dive instructor. He seems to know about EVERYTHING that happens down there.

Just an update to let you know that John and I haven't heard back from the man yet. Still hopeful that he will hear from someone that we want to talk with him again. Thanks to everyrone for all of your helpful comments. Will keep you posted.
