That hasn't been decided, but wherever it is the Brinks truck will follow along. It doesn't have prosperity in the name for nothing. It's for my prosperity.

Bless me, for I too have sinned. Algae needed an anchor light and all I had in my possession was some speaker wire, a water hose adapter, a socket and LED, plus a ratty hose I'd found in a field. It wasn't perfect, but it is wired and works.



Oh, and the end from a Life-raft light -- that's the waterproof top of my light. Not fancy of course, but rather suits the dink and it's bright enough.

Please forgive me for making sudden, sharp turns (crazy Ivans) toward another boat's large wake that would otherwise severely roll my boat. This picture, taken from the Coot, shows crossing a wake. A boat in the background is doing the same.

Oh King Neptune you have looked after me. Somehow your ultimate wisdom has kept me from disaster. My anchor was the wrong kind, it was too small, and there was not enough chain. How can I ever atone.

I should be the poster child for this group as I own a gas powered boat. And though I made a trip recently at 5ish knots, aside from the company i kept I did not like it. 14+ knots feels much better

Craig, try 28 knots. You'll like it even better.

Seven knots is fast enough for me (former sailor). Looking down at the water passing by almost makes me dizzy.

OK...you are all on track and I can't possibly congratulate all of you for your less than perfect performances...and no one has set off the "Not welcome" alarm yet (guess they are to busy in the I'm perfect ...not really...threads).....but alas...so keep up the good (not perfect work) and keep those new members happy!!!

See ya'll tomorrow....maybe we need to think of a burgee..Kevin Sanders thought about one but it's too common...something way more bad boy but please no skull and crossbones allowed. Definitely need the secret greeting word which means that cocktails, jet skis and wakes are in our future.

Craig and Don, you guys should be atoning for your fuel-wasting ways!!

Bless me Rev Moon, for I have sinned. It has been forever since my last confession.

When I was 6, I failed to allow my little brother's bathtub toy tug (clearly the stand-on vessel as I recall) right of way as I rammed him in his fwd stbd quarter. (It sank and he cried....VICTORY!)

At age 14, I allowed my sister's friend to paddle the canoe from the aft position even though she knew nothing about boats...but she was the cutest girl in the neighborhood.

(insert long dry stretch without boats)

At age 44, I tried to anchor my new-to-me lake boat with a mushroom anchor at a 1.5:1 scope! I returned the anchor to Walmart for a refund because it didn't work.

At age 55: I made numerous 12V terminal connections without shrinkwrapping.

At age 56, I enjoyed lunch in Napa via my boat with two buddies and enjoyed an IPA beer on the lido deck following lunch and BEFORE we returned.

I know that I have countless sins of omission and commission that I cannot remember now due to my failing memory and drinking habit. Please forgive me for those unstated sins. Maybe after another beer, it'll all come back to me. Standby for part deux!

OK...name my penance. Just remember that I am now on a fixed income. Bring it on.....I'm sitting down.

I was towing a boat on the hip approaching an open drawbridge. Was towing by his nose, but swapped to hip coming into bridge and tight area. Big sportsfish coming up from behind pulling a big wake, maybe at 10kts, trying to make the open bridge that would by all means accomodate him. I called him on the radio to slow down for me, no response. Waked me HARD and the hip tow and my boat banged HARD. I yelled at him as he passed and threw a half full can of beer into his cockpit and it made a hell of a bang. Then he slowed down... And made threatening gestures and comments from the bridge. Acted like he wanted to come down to fight or whatever. I reached into the cooler and pulled out a full BOTTLE of beer and made clear I would throw it.

He climbed back up to his controls and idled off, this time about 5kts. Another jerk...

I'm not sure...wasting beer is a big offense in this club...good thing you have other talents we all appreciate....

be carefull...wait a minute..breaking even bad boy club rules...holy cow man... you'll be on the board of directors in no time!!!!....

ps..that's why I hardly ever hip tow...too many guys just have to come close and wake.
