    nahhh, we're still working on how to design a boat that can float down thru 4" of water

    Nothing yet, things have been a lil unstable since I left OE and been thru 2 jobs and one deadbeat owner who owes me close to 4 k still. Gov called today, they have finally gotten to my complaint at least....

    Got some things in the works I cant talk much about yet but should be real interesting if they come full circle.

    Hows things in AZ? head above water still I assume? Your city council pull their heads out of their asses yet and realize they should just give us back our hockey team before they lose another 30+ million? haha (what a gong show)

    Pleasant and Bartlett. Pleasant LE Flat refused, but offered to make the call to the tow company. That was quite a few years ago. Had my two kids with me and they were little at the time. Probably 4 and 6 or thereabouts. Just me and the kids. That one pissed me off. Would've been no big deal if I were by myself, but the kids were scared.

    The sheriff at Bartlett hated jetboats so that might've been part of it. He also stopped me one time presumably for leaving early out of a no wake or so he said (that was complete bullshit and he knew it). He did a full boat check and wrote me up for having two fire extinguishers both low on charge. Had to go to court on your side of town for that one. The judge owned a Biesmeier and we talked boats for a bit and he let me off. No fine, but had to take off work that day and go through the hassle. Same guy stopped me once for noise too.

    They'll call for a tow service for you though. Last time I checked it was around $500 for a 3 mile tow.
    I've seen the Sheriff tow a bunch of boats at the Sag Dan. Where don't they help out with a tow?

Then I told him for a change I'm glad to see you.....you can tow me in.lol I never really gave towing much thought as far as the freeboad deal until this thread. I guess for me it would depend(for me) on the water that day.

    X2, if im getting near one, i raise the tail to warn them of the consequences. they will usually back off or get out of my way.

    im a firm believer of karma, so if someone is broke down, i will give them a tow. i took off my ski bar last week, so maybe its a no tow now. ill still help with any mech or elec issue though. a boater is a boater, imo.

    Vince, I had a feeling that it might have been you. Nothing serious I hope.
    Looking forward to seeing you all on 18 Sep.

    Reason for idling. If I went just a little faster, I would get water through the headers. Was afraid the low rpm's and water would cause reversion and water down my oil. Besides, it was a beautiful day. No rush.

    thanks for the tow jerry.

    its not the sea doos i have an issue with, its the riders on them that 85% of the time dont have a clue as to wtf they are doing. Likewise with the wakeboard boats. They put me into fits of rage as well!
