    Default What I noticed at the show

    For the people that get easily butt hurt, make the preperation-h handy prior to this read.

    New2Cats- Nice rig. Blister cream and ice packs will go a long way this summer.

    There was a sporty big boy boat (I won't mention the manufactuer) that had a high spot on the port side along the rub rail that stuck out almost an inch within a 8" run....I might also mention, it was not part of the design. Seriously?

    I really didn't care for Eliminators deck. The front seemed funky and I could really do without canopies in a deck. Do they sell toddler ratchet straps for go fast canopy decks?

    I did like Eliminators idea to make a hard cover for that non-accessible open bow. Great idea. You can have the best of both worlds. I would make a sign for the cover that reads "if you can read this, you're probably fat".

    DCB should just wash their hands from decks all together. They look like they threw a rumble seat in a porsche. I threw up in my mouth a little when I saw seating for 6 in a deck.

    The jerky was cats ass.

    1 or 2 piping chicks wandering around. Hey Mattman, did you catch that blonde when we were downstairs? She looked familiar, I think your brother nailed her back when he was douche bigalow.

    Now for my questions...

    How hot does a full billet swimstep get? Seems like it should have water cooled coils inside to keep from making toe tacos.

    Priceless!! If your ever looking for a job, that pays nothing.. I'd enlist your services as a writer for my next years boat show report.

    I do not know how hot, but I will say this. I looked at the one on the
    Domn8er (not knocking Domn8er they do not make the step). That step is very flimsy and unstable (wiggles alot side to side). It seems to me it would not be very supportive when climbing in out of the water. I am talking about the new pull down step mounted on the boats btw.

    Depends on what color it is and whether on not you get the ones with the rubber inserts in them. Mine is gold-anodized (no inserts) and does not get uncomfortably hot. No toe tacos (LMAO) yet.
    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

    Mine does not get hot at all. I have it just above the waterline so that may make a difference. Mine is very sturdy and is one piece.

    I wasn't even there (don't need to be) and I know that you look at boats a lot like I do....in REALITY! I agree with you 100% on what you saw.

    I think billet swim steps will only be hot when you are off the water...otherwise the water is close enough to just splash it enough...poor your beer on it..something to not have the design burned onto you permanently.

    Thanks again for the review, I know I would have had the same thoughts.

    No kiddin', the most "toddler friendly" deck boats I saw were Laveycraft and Howard. They both had pocket doors that could block off the bow area.

    I've come to the realization that some of the "Deck" boats were just cats with carpet to the bow. You can insure a "Deck" boat for $600-$700 a year, where a Cat could be over $2000

    Are you the same guy that wrote this:



    I haven't been to the gym since July of last year. I jumped on a scale last week and tipped at 231. The only times in my life I've been over 210 is when my arms were so big I couldn't touch my shoulders and when I started making pastries (you have to sample what you sell). I need to shed my winter coat. From today until St. Patty's I do declare, I am on a diet. I've been able to always drop weight in the past but now having a baby and no extra time to speak of it's going to be really rough. I know I'm not going to be anywhere near my fighting weight but as I look at this sliding scale called life it's only going to get worse. Need to start now. This sucks sweaty sack.

    Seeing as the boating months are sneaking upon us, articles of clothing will dimish and I don't need my daughter saying "my daddy can eat your daddy". Anyone want to start a pool? 100-250...500 clams per person? Largest % of weight lost wins the pot.

    I need motivation here people.
