    Default new guy but old guy

    hey jet boat folks, i met a old jetboater on sat. on the parker strip. his screen name is vegajohn, wife is cindy and son is zach, very nice folks, we floated the strip..of course after i had a few beers at roadrunner,,, his boat is a southwind with a chevy and a blower sitting on top, black with metalflake and blue pinstripping, he is on the boards but doesnt post up, just reads all the stuff. he has been boating for alot of years and has all kinds of different boats,(he can give all the details). john stated he would like to hang at big river with all of the jet guys, so i pm'ed my info so he can hook up with the big river folks next summer, so i welcome vegajohn to the jet boat side of p.b. and hope you guys will do the same. john and his family live in the phoenix area.. just another jet for the big river jet boat club... welcome john and family be sure to fasten your seatbelt..

    By not posting (lurking) some times is the best thing, as the daily beatings go on. Wecome to the PB boards, great to see another Southwind owner pop up.

    I've got a friend or four that won't step up to the plate and I'm pretty sure that you can relate to why someone wouldn't step up.

    Welcome John!
