Moonstruck is in for a windshield modification. Larry, please send a "Designs by Larry" logo to put on the boat.

Nice of you to say that guys. At least I know there are a few that get a kick out of my Photoshop playtime....another reason why I like to visit TF whenever I can.

I reckon Flywright got it spot on. Hard to 'splain it better than that. We can even have fun murderin' the lingo if we want.

However, being serious for a second, I think while a boat make forum could be good for dissemination of species specific information, it could sort of run out of steam for a time fairly easily, whereas I enjoy hearing, seeing and finding out about other designs on here. That and the general repartee. I suspect you wouldn't get much of that in boat type specific boards...

FW and PB - Correctopeel! May I add... Tolly forum that I frequent and have great success for answers to Tolly questions is bout as dull as can be... as compared to TF. Sometimes not a post or new thread for days in a row. TF Rocks!

Hendo, you are so correct, it sure is different these days.

Heck, the medical "pill" companies will soon have too many humans taking medications to make them all "Stepford" like in their actions and reactions (similar to the “Stepford Wives” movie). Not me - I don't even take a freeking aspirin lest I simply gotta for fever or headache!

Back in the day, i.e 1960's/70's... We used to tell the loosers in a good o' fisherman's pub fight in New England, as we helped them off the floor and pushed em out the door... "Don’t be bitter, reconsider" Next time you visit our pub be careful what you fcken say! LMAO

On the WWW it's different... supposed ta be "politically correct", and all that crap - or a moderator will censer your assss off the site! Personally I have fond memories of good ol' fist flyen bar fights... made cha thirsty for another beer, or four!

But, with all that said... TF is still a pretty darn good forum for we boaters to hang out and chat!

Lol you've said those words to me when the mods censored my arse last time. I was bitter but got over it. I've learnt not to take people seriously other than my friends on here. Good to sit back and watch people argue about how great their anchor is or how great their handrails are LMAO and don't even get me started on those tools that think a sharpie pen is good for anti fouling hahahahahahahahahahahaha aaaahhhhhhh.....

Everyone know you're supposed to use White Out on the bottom (it's ablative) not Sharpie! It just takes a loooooong time to paint the bottom with those little brushes! ;-)

Greetings,
Mr. FW. Be careful now, "White Out" could be considered racist by some of the more genteel/PC members.
