Watch size ..... not that I have a problem with Huge watches or RW at all.
I know nothing about watches and that’s not by accident.

I can find better things to blow the little bit of money I have on. 🙂

Some guys over there machine custom watches. They are flipping HUGE and I think they are pretty cool.

they are the most awful looking things ever...and i heard they charge big dollars for them lol
Would there be any interest in a watch that matches your boat that is not oversized? Or does that takeaway from the custom look of it?

Last summer someone with a River Whips sticker on their truck honked and flipped me off... I would assume it was because they saw my RDP sticker on my rear window. I did not notice any large watch on their wrist :rolleyes:

I don't know why everyone is banging on Gene's watches (pound foolish).. They aren't my thing, but a lot of people like them and Gene is a hell of a nice guy.

They do make a smaller watch that isn't coaster sized if ya want one.

You know that has never happened to me.. LOL

Although I will say when the cops on here were telling me that they have rdp stickers on the back of their ticket books. I thought that was kinda funny.

Fixed it. Not trying to bang on anyone's deal. Was more asking as most contemporary watches are in the 37-44mm range these days, maybe an underserved market segment?

Ive never been on river whips. I dont do Facebook. How does RW make money? Is it a business?
Last year at desert storm i saw them at a bar/club throwing money around. It was pretty ridiculous. That was all i needed to see.

I always wondered the same as the guy above?
At least with rdp we have a forum.
How did river Dave come up with a forum too?
Is this a cult? Haha
I found this site trying to find info on my Carrera. Then I saw the boat was like yes this is me!

Ditto. Found this site looking for info on my Ultra, then posted the rebuild here as well. Eventually there will be a '64 Howard rebuild posted too. Just haven't gotten to that project yet

Not sure why they need to make $$$ to have a boating group on Facebook. I’m on many group pages on FB. Sports groups, Trade related groups, Corvette groups, RDP group....

River whips is doing something. Only reason I saw it was the guy I bought my old Carrera from had a sticker on his truck. I don’t ever wear name brands. Don’t advertise for anyone for free or pay for the item then advertise for them.

I have a truck that’s built. Someone asks me about it I tell them you go look and find out what it has. Boat they ask ask me the brand I tell them go look and find out.

I do and follow a lot of company’s but they won’t gain anythin from me besides my business.

I’m on River Whips and have never been asked to buy anything or read anything that involves making $$$. Other them selling stickers and hats. Seems like a bunch of people that like boats. Same as the Eliminator groups that I belong to.

I don't do the facial book but I could go for some more t&a around here. I understand we all get older but sometimes I feel like I went from 22 to 72 based on the threads I read on here. Buncha old ninnies arguing about nothing at times, then you have the resident wannabe mod gayin up the joint...just sayin

Is it a coincidence that this particular thread involves wrapping one's gay watch around one's penis? I guess that pretty much sums it up. 🤣

It’s the same thing, but there are very few avenues to monitize a Facebook group and make money. Facebook makes the vast majority of the money. That is not the case on a forum.

And if you watch the posts, people pay out for these stickers then have to ask a month or two later “hey where’s my sticker” they sell 1000 then go get them made.

I do have one River Wipes shirt but i got it from Positive Trim as he did a colab with them for the family’s of Lickity Split.
