Off Topic:

I raced a beach catamaran for 26 years. I learned that a boat is a hole in the water into which you pour a bunch of money into until it sinks. And yes, I have been sunk. In Corpus Christi Bay during a National Championship regatta. By my best friend. Fifty boats on the starting line and he runs into me and cuts a hull in two.:mad:

 

You're a dangerous man.  Sinks boats, runs into deer, what else is there you're not telling us?........

Well...:offtopic:

it might be too gruesome for a family site like this. For example, while cutting wood for a lawn mowing customer (while in high school) with a double-bladed axe when, after the backstroke, coming forward I hooked a plastic clothes line. The rebound of the axe head nailed my right in the center of the top of my head. The plastic line took absorbed much energy.  Luckly the blade was extra dull. Not even a headache.

While using a would chipper in 2001 in my back yard something was ejected that hit me in the teeth, even though my head was way outside of the hopper chute. Knocked out two teeth and seriously broke another eight.

 

But my first broken bone was not until I was 50+ yrs. old. While snow skiing. But Deer Slaying was my best effort in that regard. :squid:

 

My family has developed an acronym for me: GTBA. Glad To Be Alive (and walking around).

 

It seems I've had little regard for my body for much of my youth. Now it is paying me back big time with aches, pains and arthritis. Payback is a son-of-a-gun.

 

Now let's get back on-subject.

This is on topic.....you ride a VFR, therefore, you abuse your body.  Glad to know about your other escapades.   Now, I know to keep a safe distance from you, LOL.....

I could only wish, but a boat like that is too big for Minneapolis (City Of Lakes) Minnesota (Land of 10,000 Lakes) (although we have well over 10,000.

I do like the idea though.

I also want to thank Dutchy for his continued support and encouragement.

It's not about the boat.  It could be in a parking lot.  It's the crew.....

I would offer you the CB but it looks like it will be in use.  You can get a sweet deal on a HD rental from Timmy.

Thank you for considering me in the offer... I really appreciate it!  That's the kind of camaraderie you only find here at VFRD

I found a sport bike rental place I may use.

I ordered a shirt and I will not be there.  Take mine.  If they dont believe you when the shirts are distributed, then we have bigger problems.

Thanks, Timmy.  I am glad you are nearer to us in Georgia now.  Maybe we can get together for some tale telling.

I'm out... work and weather conspired against me.  I started a new position on Monday and the VP handed me a load to handle before the weekend.

 

Have fun and stay safe!

 

 

... and dry if possible :goofy:
