Funny you mention all that,
I met my wife at the LEOPA poker run 1999 at the Monroe boat club. We didn't even make the poker run - we got boxed in.
Mad Dog did a great show!

I miss that water you have up there, you don't know how lucky you are...
I took it for granted...

I see all these newer boats with wild paint job's and killer power that are just too much for me. They are great to look at, but that much power, maintainance, and $$?????
I'd rather have a mid 80's boat with simple graphics (although I did like the "checkers" going on in the early 90's) over some of the newer boats with swirls and 24 different colors.
80's boat with updated controls and gauges, maybe even update the interior a bit, but keep the lines classic.
So what do you all think??

i'm with ya but i do need to add with big power i like the lines until 98 just my 002

I have to vote for updated old school.

38KV: That is a great looking boat.

MR. CIG: That thing looks sweet too! I like the logo and the flags on the bow.

Boxed in....
No it wasn't anything dirty - at least not that night.
We were both supposed to go to work on Saturday, we just went for the steak roast on Friday night, wound up getting pulled into a dock and 5-6 rafted off us. Wound up staying the night. Not bad for a first date.

38 KV - that really is a great looking boat.

Hot Duck - nice Apache!

New hull lamination and step bottom technology, good reliable power that can be built up, and simple graphics.
Something just like this
