Trojan's new dew!!

Well,
As I have lost the wife and the job this fine new year, I am happy as hell that I have my boat. Been planning this all winter, and this forced vacation will have me back on the water much sooner than originally expected. Allright!!! (obviously not finished yet)

Wife advice...

Hey Jimmy... I lost mine one time too. Fortunately, I didn't look too hard and so I never did find her...

Since then, I found a new-improved one. More to the point, she likes boats a whole lot more than the starter model!

I too hope things improve... but there is much happiness to be found!

Now, as for that contraption, I gotta tell you, that that's "Fugly". Isn't it going to fly off in the first good blow? (Still talking about the boat, not the love-life...)

I don't like you guys anymore.. :)

Sheesh,
Just kick me in the confidence.. I guess it's just an alaska thing, people up here like it. Yeah, I know it's a bit boxy, but it's built to beat. (I hope) It will be nice when I'm cruising in beating rain or snow. I does ruin the sporty potential of the boat though, but with the raised deck and the extra fuel on board and the storage that it will encompass, i will be able to sleep on it, camp in it, fish from it, hunt with it, and take the older folks out a bit more comfortably.. Plus, with three heavy u-bolts, it all comes off. But yeah, It's definately shaped a lot like a barge wheelhouse.
Jimmy
