RE: Using the boat...

The scenery ON the boat is terrific. The scenery BEHIND the boat..... I dunno if I could take if after this sort of thing.....

RE: Using the boat...

Unfortunately we cannot take photos like John's up here because the constant rain, fog, and freezing weather requires that everyone be wrapped up in sweaters and coats most of the time. You could say that the pictures I posted prove I'm lying about our weather but they were actually taken in.... New Zealand. Yeah, that's it, New Zealand. So for great weather and fabulous off-boat scenery, go there.

For great weather and fabulous on-boat scenery, you obviously have to go to Texas.

RE: Using the boat...

Marin, I would absolutely love to do some boating up your way. I know these photos are enticing but it wold also be nice to have some mountains and clear water. If it makes you feel any better, we had to weigh anchor and get moving just to make our own wind so we wouldn't die of heat stroke. Anyway, it is definitely one of the reasons why I got a boat.

And I have been trying to shake that tall chick for years but I ended up married to her....dunno if I ever shared wedding pics with y'all but here ya go....I sometimes forget how beautiful she is....but wow!!!!

Gawd I miss Key West....can't wait to get back there!!!!!!

Seahorse....Bring it!!!!!

RE: Using the boat...

I do like this forum and the simplicity of posting pics!!!!!!!

The lighting was soooo good on this evening that I actually had to take saturation and temperature out of these pics or they would look almost fake.* Anyway, one more to illustrate my point....

The weather was too cool for swim suits but the old gal looks pretty good for being in her 60's, huh?

This is so much better than discussing filter setups and water in diesel. Keep those pics coming. Its good to have no thinking involved on a Friday night.

Ah, he's just sore I had better pix than he did! <snicker>

Here's some replacement pictures with their tops ON. These are from the pool bar at South Shore Harbour. See, I can have fun even when I'm not out cruising!

RE: Using the boat...

I just said said goodby to my buddy and his wife and daughter who were spending a couple of days on the boat with us. I won't post pictures, but I'll tell you that the daughter is on 3 week vacation from work. She's a dancer at the Lido in Paris. Seems there's more money there that at the Jubilee show in Vegas where she was working last year. My wife is 5 foot nothing. The daughter is 6 foot 1 inches, them are some loong legs....... drool drool.....
