Have you ever...

Have you ever gotten behind a school bus just to smell the diesel fumes and miss your boat? I do that a lot.

Or sit beside a dump truck at a stoplight just to hear the diesel idle...Every chance I get.

Um, no. But we rarely smell diesel fumes when we're on the boat anyway so it's not an olfactory experience that we miss.

And every dump truck, pickup truck, you-name-it-truck is WAY louder than the two little low-power FL120s in our boat, so there no relevance there either.

Actually, I don't think we've ever actually missed our boat. We've missed going out on it when the weather prevents us from doing so, but we don't miss the boat itself. We know it's always there, conjuring up more things to fix.
