    He always made it back in fact i'm 99% sure he is in a book named "Fatal Forecast". I had it on books on tape and was hiding under my workbench to avoid the waves ! Had flashbacks to my offshore lobstering days !

    Steve, as many as their around it seems guys keep them a long time. If they like a good comfortable ride and don't need a speed demon, their happy. (But you already knew that). :) I'll keep my eyes open.

    I was curious how you boat finished up with your deck project and everything else. I was always a fan of your boat.
