    Default Huge THANKS to the whole dlb.

    Well, after two years the boat is back in the water and running…whoo hooo. So I though I would just take a second to say thanks to all of you for the support and kind words during this project. There were more than a few times when I was so sick of this damn thing that I could have very easily just thrown in the towel and bought a open bow family type boat to enjoy. There was a point in the middle of it when I let the boat sit for about 8 months, so discouraged at it that I wouldn’t even go out in the garage to do anything other than take the trash out.

    Bob, Steve, OC, Phil, Big John and everyone else, thanks for all of the support through this project. The kind words of encouragement really did make a difference at more than a couple times. With out them I would probably out in family cruiser right now.

    Phil the parts that you made for my boat are just bitchin, huge thanks for your time.

    Don the fact that I always new in a pinch I could give you a call and get answers to questions if I had them was huge. Thanks for all of the support and help over the last two years.

    Dave O, how can I ever thank you for the countless hours that you spent in the garage handing me tools and getting into the small places that I couldn’t get to.

    Don and Dave, I can not tell you how much I truly appreciated the support over the last two week push to get this junk back in the water and running before the beach run yesterday. Don, thanks for keeping me on track Friday so it could all happen. I am sure that with out you Friday AM I would still be double checking everything for like the 100th time…lol

    Ryan, thanks for helping drink all my beer…lol.

    707, thanks for all of the rides over the years. I got a seat for you and yours when ever you want.

    Tunnel T, thanks for the use of the prop over the weekend. With out it I was going no where.

    I especially want to thank the whole dlb you guys are great. Not once during this whole project did I ever go with out a seat if I wanted to go on a trip. Thanks allot, because that is the reason I didn’t give up on this project and the reason that I pushed so hard to finish it over the last couple of weeks.

    If there is anything I can ever do for any of the dlb, please allow me to pay it forward and help any of you with anything you might need.
