I want to start of first by saying I'm sorry. Sorry for insulting you, for calling you names, for taking some jokes a little too far and most of all sorry for being an all around dickhead.
I'm not looking for a pitty party for me here but I would like to give you some insight as to maybe why I did the things I did. First off, I had a bad year boating. If it wasn't low water levels it was a breakdown. It just seemed to be one thing after another. That combined with the way the economy is now, financially I did not do as well as I have done in the past. I'm not even sure I will be able to keep my boat. These things over time start to eat at a man's soul and they made me very bitter. I think that bitterness rolled over on to the boards here and was aimed at you guys for no good reason.
I see the pictures of you guys on your lunch runs and I think to myself damn that looks like fun but instead I'm stuck here at home watching TV. For me, and I'm sure for a lot of you, Boating is not just a hobby but a passion and a lifestyle. So maybe to hide the pain of not being able to boat I went on the attack...I don't know.
Again, I apologize for my actions in the past several months and assure you it will stop in the future. I hope you allow me to go on one of your runs in the future (if I still have my boat). I'm already friends with a few of you guys, I won't mention any names for fear of retaliation from the rest of the group, but I would like to make more....and maybe even buy a few beers...or a few hundred. Sorry. Grads.
