RD. Ran into him 3 years ago after test driving the Hallett I still own at Windsor. Then got divorced a year later. Then ran into RD yet again, I know, again last year at the DCB regatta by pure chance in the dark. Yes it was dark but he got to meet my then girlfriend at the time, it was brief. Long story short, maybe, just maybe Ill finally meet a few of you saps at the Hallett`s of Havasu.

River Dave. Lol..

I drove out to Vegas for a trade show, and swung down to havasu for an overnight deal. We went off roading, and I wound up going to the Trump pre inauguration party. I vaguely remember singing with the band at some bar downtown ...


Met mini Kat, singleton, TPC, Hammer, andy01, etc...

Was freakin cool!

Came back the next weekend and helped out with the cardstock for the pirates cove poker run. Hung with the guys from Lavey Craft too.

Between Dave and Ross' hospitality, Havasu is freakin awesome! 20170113_204624.jpg
Dave had a custom hat made for me too.

.

My wife and I met Jeff and Angie (Sportin' Wood and Mrs. Sportin' Wood) when we pulled into the parking lot at the Avi for the 2004 Classic Boat Beach Bash. They were standing next to their Hallett.

But we were all HotBoat peeps back then. RDP was just the subject of drunken conversation in those days. :D

The CBBB was a great event.

My first RDP meet up 2was actually the guy who started this thread, RogerThat99. This year at the Needles boat show. He saw us with our RDP gear on and could not have been more friendly. Even walked us over to his truck for some cold beers. Thank you again, and look forward to meeting more members this summer. Jason

There has been so many, it is hard to remember! I think it might have been 460 or Milkmoney first, then Greg and Wheeler, Carl, OD1, Hammer, Dave, Stacey, Shit it was all down hill from there! Between Parker, DS, and all of the different races I have met so many great people... Still many more to meet and party with!

I met Shintoo, 28Eliminator, and another Dave all the same day. I had found the board shortly before meeting them but was a classic lurker... Great people.

First person was RD himself. When we were lined and fendered with the big boat, to a dock in Florida, the wife and I were on the scotch deck when we heard someone laugh and say, "I wonder if this is Go-Fly's yacht". By the time I got down to the dock, they were gone. Was going to invite them on board.

Nice meeting you officially in Havasu the other day! Great talking to you, and I'm going to give you a call soon about that product idea you were talking about.

I met Racey when he was a kid. 8-10 years old. Our dads have been friends since the 60's.
Does that count?:rolleyes

Would this question also include the old days of Hot Boat?

If so, thinking back..... I'm pretty sure it was CampbellCarl
If we go back that far, to HotBoat days, I think I met you first. You brought the Kurtis flatty up to Sandbar when I was camped there

I'm not sure who I first met, it was a long time ago.

Might have been SkySkier or Digger, it could have been RD at his 30th birtday party at the Road Runner along with a host of other inmates. :headscratch:

Now I remember who it was, it was CJ Baker.

I met CJ back in '76 while he and my brother were training partners for ski racing. At least they called it training, I called it a scam. The way I saw it, it was nothing but a way to get out of work and go to the hot water channel and play everyday while I had to stay and work. :grumble:
