Lake Crossing

Rogan & Bryan:

13 Hours in a U-Haul, one rather large dent from a concrete slab at the BP station in Virginia, and about 12 coffees later-I am finally back in Sawyer. Now it is time for the Fat Bastard to make its first Lake crossing of the summer. Of course, Carinya is also indefinitely invited...

I propose this Thursday, beer and ribs (the pork variety) will be available upon your arrival. Cancel the clients Bryan, and make this happen.

Best,
Stokes

P.S. I told myself that I would not post on this site until I had my own RIB, preferably a ZapCat. But, I guess the picture of the Hurricane on the beach in Sawyer on the Rib.net mainpage gives me indirect RIBing credibility...

Of course it does - I bet a Zapcat would raise a few eyebrows over there!!!

Welcome Bobby

I can't wait to help you get a Zapcat with a tohatsu 70 on the back . Should be able to put the fear into some of those annoying jet skiers.

As for your proposed trip, sounds like a great idea I will see what I can work out with clients and Rogan. It will depend on conditions though, it is 60 miles.

Ahhhhh, I have such fond memories of your beach house.

There appears to be scantily-clad women folk there. And could that be cold beer in those glasses?

Pat... Road trip to Chicago?

Road Trip?

Do you think Thing one and Thing two could handle such a venture? A visit from other rib owners? The boaters of Chicago, the United States coastguard, the Chicago police dept and any other authorities would probably appreciate it if we somehow kept them occupied and away from the Screaming Red Haulin Ass Jumpin over waves and probably other boats "Fat Bastard" but somehow I don't think that would happen if we went there... To be honest, if we went there they MIGHT want to take us for a BOAT ride and to that all I can say is... BE AFRAID... BE VERY AFRAID!
Stoo... why do you think I am doing all these modifications to War Machine?
The possibility of one day encountering the Bros Birnie on the waters of the Great Lakes exists, I need to be prepared for the day they come flying across/over/under/through my bow...

I can see the Chicago Tribune headlines now, fast forward one or two years: "Rascally Chicago waterfront Celebrities Rogan and Bryan of Fat Bastard fame sink visiting ex-military rib while performing stunts "

The Fat Bastard comes to visit Carinya the sail boat. Starting to get more and more involved with sailing lately. Carinya is a sharp 40ft sloop built by Morris out in Maine. Awsome to sail in a gale after jumping the Bastard in some waves for a few hours.

Omigod... You guys AREN'T thinking about becoming ragbaggers are you? You might get mugged on this forum for even mentioning the word Sailboat... You didn't give anyone (Cod et al) your street address did you? These people don't take these kind of things lightly you know.... Stoo, tell em what could happen....

Geez... I don't know that I'm the one for that! I was sailor long before I became a "stink-potter"... and will probably go back to it again eventually... especially as fuel goes up and up and up...!

Mind you, the lads would have trouble getting air in a 40 -footer!
