Default A toast to Pbalbs for my 28

Never made a post about my boat and wanted to give some back story. I bought my 28 single off pbalbs on here who has since passed. Little back story he posted he would sell it in a comment on here last year so we rushed over there handed him a deposit so he could get the titles and meet back up the next week. Well he ended up backing out and i was heart broken to say the least. He told me “listen if i ever sell it i swear youre the first call” well a year later pat gave me a call saying he was ready to sell. He told me he wasnt doing so well health wise and wanted to sell it. We made a deal and toasted with a few millers to good health. We stayed in contact for a week or 2 every day asking how fast i ran it so far then i found out he had passed away. We made sure to pour one out for Pat on the boat. A mans word is all he has sometimes and Pat kept his word and sold me this boat and i have to say it was the best summer ive ever had. We ran this 750hp 540 boat every day off I had. I was worried about a big power motor in a boat and he swore “kid this motors not coming apart i promise”. So heres one to pbalbs who made me realize lifes short have fun. enjoy the photos of the summer we had on what i believe is one of the cleanest 28 singles out there! Sure is awesome to own a boat that every past owner, Jerry and Tom, are so helpful even though they didnt sell me the boat. And shoutout to Craney from finding the boat and getting me hooked on these boats.
