I don't know how easy it is for you to break you media guys away. You're boat features are are awesome maybe something similar but shop feature videos. I know you do this with your shop tour threads but maybe toss in a vid? Idk.

Someone mentioned the max machine series that was a good series I liked it. Are there any engine builders that would do something similar or maybe @Gelcoater would let you film him shooting a mold. I've read his thread, it's probably written perfectly but I understand visuals better. Sorry to drop your name but I've always been intrigued by how the mold actually starts and comes together to become a boat.

Is a your mom joke out of line here?*


DISCLAIMER

* I don’t know you or your mom and the comment was meant in pure humor.
My Mom would think it funny. I would be disappointed if nobody picked up on my 7th-grade humor.

True story.. I was down at the Bluewater casino one time and there was the adba thing that was just kinda starting out.

Two guys walk up to me in the bar and say “Hey your RiverDave right?” I say yes.. they say we want to get you a beer.. I say ok, so we walk over to the bar. They order three beers..

They are sitting there talking to me about adba (should note they aren’t affiliated with the group to my knowledge? I think they were racers or spectators? Dunno jetboaters for sure lol.

So we are talking and the bartender is kinda sitting there staring at the dude that ordered waiting to get paid. Guy just keeps talkin. So he hits dude number two because I’m furthest from the bar, he just kinda keeps talking. So after like two minutes (which is a long long time in this circumstance). I finally say “let me get this round”

I paid.. the guy kept talking and I just walked away. Lol.

That’s it?
That’s the cross I drag around?

only 1 question, when are the hat orders going to be live? And more importantly a thank you. I spend a fair amount of time on here during the week while im at my desk. I have learned some stuff, some of its even useful. Met a few guys off of here and even got a few customers who are on here from time to time. there are still some on here i hope to cross paths with at some point for a beer or a bullshit session. you have built a "community" here and im happy to be a part of it.

What is the high stakes gambling you mentioned?

We flip quarters starting for a 1000 a flip up to 10,000 a flip. We also (very maturely) flip the game over to Rock paper scissors.. depending on how the flips are going. I’m not gonna say who it is, but me and three other guys do it routinely in havasu.

That and I play a lot of black jack.. usually ends up being 1-2k per hand two hands at a time.

So weirdly we fell into the same trap everyone does..

When you drive to the river you are on a boat the whole time. When you live here, it’s right down the street and it will be there tomorrow.

It’s kinda sad but true, I boat less now that we live here than when I lived in California.

That said there is other factors. We bbq with friends all the time or goto bbq’s. I have three kids now where I didn’t have any before (moved here with one infant)

The biggest thing to that is a lot of guys do biz out here and they go on river time / island time. We have lived here 11 years, we work twice as hard now as when we did when I was in California. And we hustled in California.

This isn’t an 8-5.. shit the time I spent offline talking to michael tonight to step away from the forum.. all we did was discuss YouTube growth, social media growth..

Got our east coast correspondent setup to upload articles to the front page directly without dealing with others

First article direct


Evaluated a ton of other shit.. but basically it’s all sticks forward. That was my time off from the forums.. lol. For the last two to three hours.

A lot of people say I don’t work. I’d invite them to come spend a Week with me and see if they can keep up.

I love this shit.. sometimes it burns ya out when people suck. But for the most part? It’s the second greatest job in the world! And I look forward to it everyday…. And not for the money, but because I truly love it.

I can relate... I grew up in north bend/coos bay. Hell we even had dune access at the bottom of our driveway in one house we lived in.. but spent more time riding in the woods didnt spend alot of time in the dunes unless we were skipping school and playing CB tag.. we moved 3hrs away and I spent more time in the dunes after that than I ever did..

No Joke. I saw it first hand. Including a $10,000 flip.

Can you you get a mod that wakes up early, that way they can delete all the CBD posts in the morning?
I'll volunteer for this position...with power limited to only this. For whateverfuckingreason I'm up at nearly 3:30AM for the last year or so.

Can we get another option to enter the Guns and Ammo section? I got the take a picture of the inside of your safe response but I'm not to up for that... Would something like a picture of a NRA card, range card, or shooting event receipt work? I have some ammo to sell.

Were you just drunk when you told me my dually would be on an RDP shirt? 😕

Never got the final rendering from TJ. It was supposed to be your truck pulling a 21 Schiada.

He drew one of them and I didn’t like it (the one where he added flames etc). He drew another one, but it isn’t finished

I can think of something.. but the problem with those are easily staged kinda deals.

In the later hotboat days there was a couple altercations between some board members, but it didn’t stem from the boards..

The boards was how they all met.. in some cases it was swingers shit that went sideways. In others there was some infidelity issues etc.

On rdp I can’t say that I recall any throw down fist fights between members or anything.. more just an awkward moment in person than anything else.

Never been to court for anything website related.

I have been threatened to be sued enough times that I’d have to take off my shoes to count that high.

Everytime I refer them to my lawyer who is Dan Donahue senior. Dan Donahue senior was BB572’s dad who was a good friend of mine and who my son is named after. They figure out pretty quick that it’s gonna end up being a payday for me and they leave..

In every case there is no merit to their claims, as it has been decided by the Supreme Court on a couple of occasions that I am not responsible for the content of the members.

To get to the actual point of your question though.. lol. What online has transferred into real life?

It used to be that I would pick up one or two weirdos a year.. stalkers : threats : just fucking weirdos..

Back in the day there was a guy that would call my cell phone everyday around 6:00-6:30 Monday thru Friday.

He would start the conversation with what an asshole I am, and then move onto telling me he was going to kill me and my family etc.. I’d crack a beer and listen to it for about 20 minutes and remain calm.. after he got past that we actually had some pretty nice conversations believe it or not. This went on for about a month and towards the end I would tell him “why don’t we skip the threats and get to the nice conversation part.” Lol. We always had to go through the weird shit first..

One day he forgot to dial the *62 deal to hide his phone number.

I sat on it for a couple of days while I figured out who he was. When I pinned it down he called and started and I said “Dave…. We aren’t gonna do this anymore. Lol”. I told him I’d let it go if he did, but any more bullshit and I was gonna dismantle his life, starting with his marriage and ending with employment. I told him some ideas off the top of my head real quick and he got the point. Never heard from him again.

About once a year I will get emails from fake accounts with everything from threats, to Just bizarre shit..

I tell them everytime even though they are using a fake email account that was probably registered with another fake email account, there is NOTHING anonymous on the internet.

They never believe me.. they keep sending them. I tell them who they are, they deny it. I tell them I didn’t pick it out of a hat.. afterwards they get to thinking about it and invariably they all want to know “how I know”. Lol.

I tell them to knock it off and they do. One of them apologized for it, and actually is a prominent poster on the board to this day. When I say forgive I genuinely mean it, I however don’t forget.

Most recent thing that happened was some idiot that is a guy that lives in Oceanside (yes I know who he is and have his address etc) called “anonymously” to all my advertisers saying that rdp propagates the killing of black people. He is a blm activist and read some post by someone in the P&G.

I called him, he denied it.. I talked to him again and said if he ever does that stupid shit again, then I’m going to talk to his boss and broker about it.

He is a real estate agent in La Jolla. He wasn’t real interested in his bosses finding out what he does on his spare time.

There is a couple highlights. Honestly though as time wears on that type of stuff really doesn’t happen much anymore.. well except the blm guy anyways. Lol

What's the criteria to get into the Guns and Ammo forum?

You have to text a picture of the gun safe open with a note that says rd sux to my cell phone 949-678-8369. You must include a username in the text so I know who it is..

After I get it I go activate the permissions and delete the text.

Problem is sometimes people text me when I am busy as shit and the texts get lost… but that is pretty rare.

Lol.. yeah I did pretty well Thursday night. Won 14 that night. 🤪

Had a rough one Saturday morning on our way back from Laughlin.. won 8k in the casino but got slaughtered playing Rock Paper Scissors in the truck. Had my buddy down about 40k at one point and he staged one hell of a comeback. 🧐. He ended up getting 16 off of me after being down 40.. 😳.

I think I’m gonna slow my roll on the big bets for awhile after that.

Mirage has Casino War (an old childhood card game), sounds like it would be right up your alley, $15 a hand minimum, but the cap is way up there. I've done good at that table and I've done bad...

How can you get more people to post pics of their boat restorations? That’s why I originally started visiting this site. I really miss the hotrod boating content.

Good question.. I’m open to suggestions?

I could do some free swag for those types of threads.. but honestly bribing for content has never worked out historically..

Any ideas?
