Just my luck, I decide to join the group and they delete my category. That's ok I fit in a couple of others. I know you guys are always asking for pictures so I chose one that was most appropriate for my avatar. It also is the reason for the name. The picture was taken last March just before the lockdown. My son and I were pulling the boat out of it's resting place where it had been sitting for the past 15 years. I was really pissed off when I parked it and I got motivated by a grandson wanting to know why grandpa didn't do something with that boat parked in the carport. I spent the next 3 months refitting it and it's now back lake worthy up here in the frozen Northwest. It still needs some body work but is pretty much where I want it. I can't afford nor am I both young and motivated enough to build one the Hot rods that most of you guys run. I also chose the avatar so you guys could get all of your digs in early. Yes, we are pulling it with a Ford ( my son's truck ), I realize there aren't enough axles on the trailer and you can't see but it's a jet with an Olds engine. We also own 6 waterlice and a pontoon. I'm also attaching a couple of pictures of the boat just before taking it the lake in July. The story of how the boat was born in 1975 as 1.0 and became 2.0 in 1995 and was reborn 2020 is another thread if anyone is interested. My hands are starting to cramp, so it's time to bail. One more thing this website and you members have been one of the few bits laughter and fellowship that has kept me going the last year. Thanks!
