Why I married the girl I just married...

I came home last night to find my new bride with her head buried in my pile of engine catalogues. Apparently, she thinks we should have a new Verado on our boat because she thinks a supercharger would be a good idea. (Lord knows why she thinks that, since she can barely fill the washer fluid jug on her car...)

Damn, I'm smart~

Wow! No doubt you made certain that your premarriage counsellor was also a certified outboard tech.










So.... she's attractive, way younger, AND understands the importance of a high performance outboard. Well done, Stoo !

Now it is her boat of course she want a better engine (is the law the same in Canada as the states "what was yours is now hers") My wife thinks a four stroke is the way to go quieter, no smoke etc. but that means she will want to go out more and that might cut into dive time with the boys

Fortunately, my Missus is my chief boat-tender as I dive alone most of the time. (She is strictly a warm-water type...). So far, the boat has only drifted away once while I was down (damn bowlines...) but she brought the boat back eventually. We were three miles off-shore, at midnight, so I was pleased she was able to find me!

Not quite. What was mine before, remains mine. Of course, to keep the boat away from the last Mrs. Stoo I had to give her my house and a massive amount of cash. The new-improved-future-ex-Mrs. Stoo (being half Italian and half Irish) would probably just have me "off'ed" if I mis-behave (!), so I won't need a boat then anyway. (My last ride in it would probably be to dispose of my corpse...)

So there could be a down side. Best buy that Verado and make use of it while you can....

LOL.. True enough. At least when I get tossed over, I'll be doing about 56 knots!

The Mrs. loves to dive to when the air temp is 80+ and water at least 60 degrees. Stoo did I marry your first wife, just to get away with the clothes I could carry gave up the house, retirement fund and my dignity. This wife just my manhood if the marriage did not work but after 18 years I know my limits.

LOL... I hear you Brother! Even though we just married, we have known each other one way or another for many years (former diving student!) but I think she considers me a bit of a work in progress... Mind you, I started her diving and skiing... in return, I became a Laundry B*tch and Vacuumer Extraordinaire! Ugh... The price one pays...
