Come on Tom... Think it over.... No boat required....You can drive to TN with one hand.....You can eat spaghetti with one hand......You can be "The Lead Singer" Saturday night with one hand..….If not, you will be greatly missed. Take Care,,, Neel

Tom

I blew out my shoulder one year. I had surgery and I think I was still in a sling. I couldn't bring a boat that year. I don't have a boat ready this year. But, I do have more Pepper Mead! I'll give you a takeout bottle.

Not just my arm, but money is tight, as well as testing/studying.
I'm declared myself totally OUT of the aircraft maintenance business. I have applied for early social security.
I am currently taking courses for 6-pack USCG Captain/tow endorsement, and likely Inland Master Captain.
Besides all the USCG exams, and a bad arm, I got to :
Get a Merchant Marine physical,
drug test,
TWIC background check,
CPR,
First Aid endorsement,
more classes,
more tests,
Bring the Double Eagle up to fishing/charter/dive boat safety regs.
And the office handling my stuff is in Florida (where the current storm is headed) to put another wrench in the gears.
Sorry, I got a full plate right now.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

I just made reservations for floating cabin 14! You all will have to put up with this phantom boat builder for yet another year without a boat. I plan on hitching a boat ride for the Friday run and look forward to seeing everyone and all of the boats I lust over at this gathering. I can't tell you how much I appreciate the experience and knowledge so many of you have offered to me. I will bring my baklava and off tone voice and know that this weekend will recharge the spirit. Looking forward to seeing you!

Great news Tom.... I'm happy you saw the light.... That's the good news, and the bad is that Ken is not coming. Ken, maybe Flor could come without you. We need her to sell raffle tickets to boost the kitty !! We will miss you.

There's a rumor that the restuarant may be closing this weekend. Spaghetti dinner may have to find another location. I'll go by there later for a brew or 12 and try to find out what's going on.
The klop, klop of water under the bows of a small boat will cure most troubles in this world.
