I cannot express my gratitude for all the sincere heart felt responses and grace bestowed on my family. This season shall also pass. I will miss all of you this season but I am not the purpose of the Gathering. It is the celebration of what we are as individuals and this hobby in how we express our individualism. I look forward to other years where we can meet again and celebrate together.

I don't think the Gathering can be stated better than that. We'll see you next year.

Sorry to hear that, Dave. I was looking forward to meeting another builder from the Show-Me state and, as far as I can tell, my closest active Glen-L neighbor.

come down to the ACBS show Sept 17th. If I still own Midnight Cry, I will be cruise master for the long 84 mile cruise that day.

Good part is that I live on the lake already so I can still do this show.

Wont need that double decker A asshole on a PWC ran into INNOCENCE Saturday afternoon .There is a hole at the waterline as big as the front of a waverunner on the Port side Dead center of the rear cocpit.I had to beach her in somone back yard on Cinco Bayou or she would have went down.The guy was towing a man on a wakeboard looking backwards I try to steeraway from his path almoast made it .If I was hauling ass he would have missed us.He was coming from the direction that we were going in a wide sweeping left turn I turned to my right to try to avoid him but he was closing too fast.One side frame broken compleatly away from the bottom frame Gunwal broken away from the deck and split from the rear cocpit up to the engine hatch.Took on about 12" of water from the engine back.Tranny was under water.I will be shipping her to Hugh Saint in Cape Coral Fl. for repair.The guy that was on the wakeboard was the owner of the PWC he has no insurance.Guess Hagerty will be sewing him and the driver.I guess it will be 20-30K for repairs.Dont know how much will have to be refinished to get her right back like it was.We will be bringing our new boat that I designed my self Sorry Gail. See yall in September.

Wow Butch, hate to hear a thing like this. :( Glad you guys didnt get hurt. Unbelieveable! No observer, no insurance, no brains! Boy, did they pick the wrong boat to run into! I hope they spare no expense at the repair shop restoring it better than before the accident and those PWC guys are forced to pony up.

Lets chop up that PWC and make a Jet Squirt out of it!

Well, looking forward to seeing your new boat at the Gathering Butch, glad you have a backup boat.

Butch, I'm sorry to hear about that. My wife and I were talking about buying one and then every time we go out onto the lake some a$$hole on a PWC cuts us off. It always results in me having to pull back on the throttle and crashing through a wake that I would have gone over. It's gotten to the point that nobody knows how to properly pass when meeting head to head and they apparently just don't give a damn. Best of luck on your repair.

Wow!!
OMG!!
How many others on this forum have suffered damages from PWC?
Is this a trend?
Glad your not injured.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

Oh maaaaaan, Butch, that is terrible...fortunately neither you or any of your passengers were hurt. At least I was at the dock when the jackass on the PWC hit me, and he had insurance. I didn't have to find a beach quick! I believe every bit of the $20-30K repair on that beauty of yours...the little gored out part on mine was almost $4000!

Sorry to hear that happened but glad you are not in jail for drowning the &%$%$#!
