Dropped the camera...Yea, excuse number two used up! No tools, no sweat, no pencil behind his ear, no extention cord, no, no, no, I think he has just gotten in from a boat trip and moving his mess around the garage so that he can store his stuff being unloaded, if you ask me of course. :P

I think the count is 89 days folks till the meet.

Its becoming apparent that this is a thread we must and can hyjack earlier than later to get any entertainment value here! Dave, while your build and thread did see some occasional curves by some of the riftraft around this joint, you should count your ever loving blessings that we held off until you finished your boat to do the same and that was fairly mild to what fear will take place here. Afterall we get all night five days a week and thats also when chillin has the most time and also does his best work. :lol: :lol:

Oyster,
Remember who we are dealing with here. This is the same guy that did a mock up of a boat in his living room. Complete with an outboard motor. (man, I wish I could find the picture) He sits down in the middle of it and while holding the steering wheel in mid air he starts to make engine noises. And the best part, he is wearing a PFD. :wink: :lol:
Now fast forward to his current project and power tools. :shock: I think this picture says it all.

Thats still a laugh a day. :lol: I don't ever recall attempting to launch any boats in the living room though. But then again I see that you are indeed smarter than most folks by not attempting to launch a boat and using it with no bottom in the water. :lol:
