Chuck, then you have worked around some real characters. Just up the road from you I was involved in the first two of many condominium projects. In fact they were the first on the island. Seaspray just off the causeway across the canal from the dry stack marina and Pine Knoll Towns. That was 40 years ago.

I did quite a bit around that area. In fact I bought my Uniflite with some of the profit on a land deal where Brandy Wine Bay down on Highway 24 is. I still have some great friends. My sons remember the weekends arount MCYB as some of the best times of their lives.

As you can see I must have a hundred stories to tell from that area. I miss my friend Ben Harker. We always talked on our birthdays as they were the same day. Man that was long ago.

Don-the "Hoigh Toide" accent extends all the way down to the SC line. I lived for a lot of years in Holden Beach, Brunswick County. My first wife's family has lived on the water there for over 200 years and there was still a good bit of the old Elizabethan accent there. Not quite as strong as up the coast, but it was still there. Unfortunately, as the area has grown, it is all but gone now.

The Hurricane Camille tug was amazing even aground she looked proud sitting there looking at the gulf 100 yards away. Sad thing is I think she is scrap metal now.

I had a saying for old wore out equipment that would also apply to some of these boat pics, "she was just used to much when she was new"

I don't like making plans for the day because the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.
