Advantages to living where water doesn't get hard: I was out for a couple of days diving (and crabbing) last weekend. The diving was OK at best; crabbing was very good: between my buddy and myself, 4 pots yielded 25 legal Dungeness and a couple of rock crabs. Luckily, we had a third licensed guy, so we could keep the extra 5 (limit in CA is 10 Dungies per person.)

I'm an active American, but it's been awhile for me.

I do have a date tonight though, but i think she is a little prudish.

I have been somewhat indisposed lately (cancer treatment) so not much boating last year. Would love to get up to your neck of the woods for some boating but War Machine is either staying here on the Great Lakes or headed to southwest fla. I think I'll be hauling her down south as there is some pipe work I want done yet and my opinion is the best fabricators for this are down there.
Plus the boating, don't want to forget about that. I'll be putting up some pics of the old craft eventually as I will update my project boat thread. Thanks for the inquiry. By the way, once I get settled, your always welcome to a ride.

New guy

I've never posted here but have used this site often as it is a wealth of valuable information. I shopped around for a RIB about a year and finally picked one up that would fit in my garage and didn't need a truck to tow it. I use a Volvo S80 as my tow vehicle. I looked at many used but found they were all beat up and asking to much. Figured at this point in life I'd step up to the window and buy new. I'm very ashamed to say being here in SOCAL, I haven't been out in about 6 months, sick, yeah I know! When I do hit the water, I'm enjoying every second of it with 1 regret, wished I had bought one sooner!
Thanks for being here, great site and won't be a stranger!
