Forum Fund Raiser Status

Hi All,
I appreciate that a number of folks have asked about contributing to a forum fundraiser to defer the licensing and operating costs. I will be posting something in a month or two with options for contributing. I took care of all the initial costs of out pocket for now to ensure we are covered in the transition. More to follow in the New Year.
thanks
Steve

    embarassing

    how about embarrassing stories. I hadn't even gotten my drivers license yet but I drove to the boat that morning anyway to go duck hunting. Decided to take the boat over to the guide getting ready to go out to ask him a quick question about limits. The boat had a kinked throttle cable at the time and would either jump up on plane or just idle no real medium speed on it. It is DARK, no moon, foggy worst conditions in the world for a boat with no radar gps or depth sounder and worst of all no lights. Well I made it over to his boat fine to talk to him. He had his spot light on and when I got in his spot light I lost the channel marker at the end of our ditch. Oh 30 seconds later and me and the boat are 10 foot on the bank. I didn't even see the bank until after we were on it. Haven't been out without lights since. Learned a good one that morning while half the town was laughing at me.

              True Story

              While lauching our 15' Glasstron my wife noticed all the little hermit crabs, and sealife in the area and thought ugh!! Should mention here that she is a very poor swimmer. Anyway we spent most of the day on the sound and came back in when it looked like a storm coming up. Pulled the boat back up to the same area and I left her sitting in the boat, holding onto the pier piling with her hands while I went for the trailer. Everything was fine until the wind started gusting and pusting the boat away from the pier. She went from sitting in the seat holding on to sitting on the side to standing on the side of the boat holding onto the piling. All the while loseing more ground than she was gaining. As I got close to the water with our trailer, heard her screaming my name, jumped out of the car to see what was the matter and busted out laughing. She looked like a gang plank between the boat and the piling. About this time her toes lost their grip on the boat and she hugged the piling. Screaming my name along with some adjectives the whole way down. Luckily the water was only three feet deep, all the scraps and bruises have healed and I learned how to cook fairly quickly.

                          Well.......since I've had my 28 CC I can't think of any particularly funny stories involving the boat......which is probably a good thing. But the lady in the slip next to me was sure laughing her ass off the other day when I pulled out of the slip before I disconnected the shore power cable. I took it of gear and throttled back just before I ripped out the dockbox from the landing finger. I looked at her real seriously and said I was trying to "straighten out the connection". She quit laughing for a second......and then just coudn't stop......Your so full of Sh!t. Oh well.......

                              funniest boating story

                              Ok, i have a good one.
                              One day last summer we had an incident docking our 25cc right in front of the provishion company (resturant) in southport. So i had to show off becouse im only 15 and there had to be a good 100 people or so right behind the dock. so i decided to back the boat in and i dont think my dad knew what i was doing. He thought i was gonna dock on the port side, so he tries to grab the dock as i am still docking on the other side becouse the wind was blowing me to the starbort side, and as everyone knows u cant stop a 10,000 pound boat that quick. So all i see out of the corner of my eye is my dad's feet over the to of the railing streched out holding onto the dock then.. PLOP hes in the water in front of the bigest hot spot in southport on a sat.
                              It's a Classic
