Well, we live in a smoke free world so no cigars allowed. Next you'll be trying to justify all the money spent on beer.
And throw away money on middle age women? TEASE

Go to the clique and you will find a bunch, but a lot stay out of that clique too.

I agree with this, I probably painted with too broad of a brush. I've spent some time in that world too. I was a saltwater fly-fishing guide for 15 years. That $ strata is one step below the sportfish guys, for the most part, but not always. Some of my regular customers were very, very wealthy indeed. One of them had a grandfather who founded Delta airlines. Another started and then sold the largest Coke bottling operation east of the Mississippi. You are right they are all over the place, like any group of people.

Not all by any means, but a lot of them like to show their financial success in certain ways that are visible to people in the know.

I'm not being critical of them, heck I'd love to be able to own a 70' Buddy Davis with a Hells Bay on the bow, I'm just pointing out what I've seen.

I love it. Only on TF can we spend 82 messages, and counting, discussing a ducking bucket. Thankfully the mention of mustard preferences passed without further comment or we might well be here until next thanksgiving. But, just because I am in a playful mood, we prefer Grey Poupon.

And now back to watching the bird cook, because thatís more exciting than buckets.

If you’re referring to Jack Lupton, his grandfather & partners bought the bottling rights in the 1880s for $1. Jack sold the company in the 1986 for $1.4 B. He did love fly fishing!

Yes the YETI SopUp Sponge is all-purpose on purpose. Whenever weíre getting our counters wet we need tools that donít fail when the job gets tough. And the YETI SopUp sponge is ready to get to work. Itís built for wiping the counters, spilt drinks from sundowners, sopping water from the bilge, or whatever other solution-based jobs you need to handle. Versatile, easily stowed, and over-engineered to last, the SopUp sponge can be taken anywhere to do nearly anything. Itís also fully reversible in case you have left and right handed crew, for example.


(with apologies to the marketing writers at West Marine who no doubt worked hard on the bucket marketing collateral)

What would make a bucket worth more is for it to be ANSI rated for particular weight capacity. Rated buckets cost. Canvas ones that OSHA likes are well over 100 bucks.

Worthless crap peddled! Hey I resemble that remark! By the way, that's a mighty expensive looking boat you've got there. Bet you could feed a lot of people with the money you put into that. Of course by buying it you gave a bunch of people work so they could feed themselves.

Goodie, now I am down to 2 bad habits. Where's the cook puller?

You may not consider being middle age but in my case, at 74 I am an old fart.

I think it would be cheaper to buy a Barbie Doll and her house and a closet full of her clothes.

Ken can buy the car.

Don't think I've seen a fake Yeti yet. Plenty of fake Rolex though. Just a matter of time before you can buy a Yeti look alike from a New York City street vendor.

Or the NYC street beggars will be carrying them and holding them out for you to put money in.

Here ya go, $128.00 bucket "system". https://shurhold.com/featured/one-bucket-system-641

I actually like that they have replaced the metal handle with rope. The base is also a good accessory.
