RE: I'm Losing My Desire for Boating....

I had SeaHorse out today for a 2 hour run. First time she's been out in several months. I do start her up every two weeks or so, in the slip, and run her in gear until the temps come up. I can't believe how good that made me feel!

She ran perfectly!* (I've got to get my mojo back.)

*Sounds like a few more 2 hour runs just may help you get that mojo back.

Man, I get a wood just hearing my genset run. I can't imagine the "mojo" I'll be rolling with when I actually get to go for a weekend. Keep us posted and hopefully you'll change your mind

Nothing like a boat run to break away from the routine. It relieves all pressures and soothes the soul. There ain't nothin' like it!!

Even just "hanging around" is a joy.

Walt:

Rather than getting rid of your boat (however you propose to do it), keep it in San Diego and we will set up a rotational usage schedule for forum members who live in the cold northern and eastern waters to use it through the winter months.
We could also compete to see who leaves the boat in the best condition, with the reward being extra time credits.
That way there are no tax implications for anyone, and when you have your mojo back, you can even have a place in the schedule.

RE: I'm Losing My Desire for Boating....

Yeah how about that. We could do it like a time share. Seahorse II could be the official Trawler Forum Yacht. Available to members only.

We could pay for all the fees thru the donate button.

When someone is in the area they could use the boat as long as there donation was current and of an adequate* ammount.

If you wanted to you could go along as the captain or the fee could include a hired capt'n.

That way when I go visit my mother in law I can get away for a boat fix.

Whadda ya think.

I hadn't thought of that, but it will surely increase the level of interest that we all have in coming to San Diego. It is a long way for most of us to drive, after all. What is your address? Would you be there, or in Sedona? Maybe your location could be part of the schedule, so we know whether we need to bring wine to share (if you are in residence).

You don't need to worry about the condition in which forum members will leave your boat. We can all man up to our responsibilities, for cleanliness, filling up the fuel tank, repairing any breakages, etc. I am a little more concerned about your house, as I don't know the competence of our fellow members around the house, so you should probably be there when we are. Besides, we all need to get better acquainted with you, so we can find ways to express our appreciation for your generosity. Right Guys?... Guys?

I'll need a plane ticket Walt. Mississippi to So.Cal. is a little to much for my yogo. I like steak and the little lady likes lobster and First Class is fine if you insist. Man this is going to work out great. Thanks

Does this look like a man who is not enjoying his boat(ing)?
