Pretty sure it was RD. I was staying at my buddies house across from his in the keys. It was RDs birthday I remember. For some reason Dave smacked me on the ass. Fag.
This was actually years ago during the old Hotboat forum days.

I would say most of the people that I know that are on RD'sP I knew well before this site was up. I think I met Dave around 2004 at the Elsinore Run What ya brung regatta.

I still haven't met the majority of you clowns. :)
Who says any of us wanna meet you?

It has been awhile since we have done this and we have a lot of new Members.


Who was the the first RDP member that you met in person, and where?

I am talking about someone you didn't already know....Not your childhood friend or HS Buddy that is on RDP.


I will start. I met John. and HighVoltageHands while out boating with Grads for my birthday in 2008.


EDIT: After thinking about it. I wasn't on RDP in 2008, so that doesn't count. The first person / people I met were Lynch, Nord, & Hammer at the RDP booth at Desert Storm.
Well I think I first met Dave at the June 5th 2004 Heaven & Hell OP6, my T shirt says OP6C VII.
I think I remember you having a cast on your left wrist.
Trying to run down young hoodlums in flip flops takes skill which was lacking on your part that night.
Love ya Dave.

The first person I met on RDP was Schiada Time. It was in 2004 for the caravan to the AVI for the Classic Boat Beach Bash. I think his old name was Red Rocket on the OG Hotboat. Man were those the days...:thumbsup

Thank you Dave, that is very flattering.
Brett took a few pictures of the Hallett at the last SOCALJEtBoat AVI trip.
It still looks good.

We are planning to be at our Mohave Valley house over Father's Day weekend.
If you have the time and would like to come out and see us, you are more than welcome.
I will have many silver bullets.
It would be good to see you.
I'll let you know if we are making the trip.
You are welcome to call.

LOL,
Dave, I still work for a living.
I hope to retire this coming March.
I would love to do the Hallett deal.
We can work something out I am sure.

BarryMac & Mandelon come to mind ... Debrolas was my neighbor in the Hot Boat days ...

The Havasu Doug Bikini Bash in '03 was memorable ... :boobeyes:

I met McRib. He needed a garment bag for his son and I had a old one laying around in a closet. Met up for about 5 minutes. Cool guy. After that it was a good group at the hat in upland the day Paul bought his Harley off of a guy in upland. That was the day I met CC. Awesome man right there.

I've been here since Sept of 2009, so it's hard to recall.

But I believe the first member I met in person was BarryMac at the Yuma Power Tour that year or the next.... :thumbsup

Obnoxious001 after blowing up the engine in my Carrera. Then it was probably Tom and Josh up at JBP for pump work. Few other in between for sure but can't remember specifics.

Chris Johnson from the old Hot Boat days at the Bluewater before the first OP6C back in 2002 maybe? Then headed over to RDs place in the Keys and met Froggy, Boatcop, Chestah Cheetah, H4215, Wrightnow, Edroe and a few others that I cannot remember.

I remember driving around the keys trying to remember where RDs place was and saw someone and asked if they knew RiverDave or Dave John son, fortunately they were an owner and looked up the address in some book for me.

I'm thinking it was LuvnLife at a race up at Lake Ming....

He introduced me to Tony Scarlatta, maybe someone else too. Long time ago, that's for sure.

After that it was probably Froggy and John West at Ultra in San Diego.

I met a whole boat load of people all at once from the HotBoat days. Too many to name.

I went to CFW on New Years Day back when it was a really hoppin party. I spent the weekend there along with all of the other HotBoaters.

That was at least 10 years ago.

Spring 2004 back in the Hotboat days. Jackpunx & roln20's, RiverDave a month or so later. Been incredibly fortunate to call many past/current forum members close friends.

How many remember Froggy cruising the channel with Art Mann from Wild On E and the Dahm triplets on his Ultra? They pulled up next to us and the bass was bumping so hard it was causing the water to ripple all the way around the boat.

The first member I met was Danny Donahue (BadBlown572). RiverDave recommended him to do some work on the Hallett I had at the time. He did twice the amount of work we talked about (because he wanted it perfect) and then refused to take any extra money for his time.

He was a really cool guy!!!

AZKC :skull ... probably in 2003 time frame, way back in the Hotboat days.

I've seen RD twice in real life, once at the sandbar in Parker in probably '04, the other at the LA boat show in '05, so I know he exists.
