After managing to make it through a number of shows where it looks like John's working on eating a tongue sandwitch, one thing comes to mind. If you're a Florida boater, is one of the requirements that you weigh a minimum of 250 lbs.? Everybody on that show seems a little on the Miami-Mafioso side.
Makes me think there's room for more boat shows, or even a boat channel like HGTV, with lots of different features - and maybe some hosts that aren't from Canada, if you know what I'm talkin' aboout!

6' 6", 200# on an average Friday. A bit more on Monday. More still the day after Thanksgiving. That's without fishing tackle and handheld electronics, of course.

Hey, Ya'll wouldn't be picking on my buddy John? I ran into him one afternoon while visiting the Cracker Barrel family eatery. The place is less than a mile from the boat yard he uses for his show. It's not John's fault they have big portions of good home cookin'.

To the contrary, not all Florida boaters are John's size. I'm all of 6'1" and 140lbs. And for the geography lesson, the boat yard John uses is more than 80 miles from Miami. :)

6'4 236#. Trying to stay as big as I can. I will keep my 40 speeds to myself. This seems to be a pretty tall forum. Tall members and once in a while tall tales!

Larry, You are not the "Herdy Gerdy" man are you? Could this be why you were so concerned about the water line on your boat? Ha Ha, Jay

Larry, if your not the "Herdy Gerdy" man then you must be the "Roly-Puly" man. Maybe I'm showing my age here. Jay

6'8", 245 pounds. Aerobics, high intensity
weight training, low fat lifestyle. Obese in my previous (pre-baypass surgery) life but in great shape now. Addicted to oxygen, ice water, and Kathy.

If you 40+ guys are not doing some resistance training, you need to start. You won't believe the difference in conditioning, even if you are now in good aerobic shape.

Who Needs a Porsche?? If you got one you're giving away, I'll clean out my garage. :) Considering I just got married 10 days ago, w/o a Porsche, I guess I didn't need one. But the GF now Wife sure likes the boat...

Well, I'm not the "Hurdy-gurdy" man, whatever that is, but I am a tad heavy.

6' even, 260. Chest is 58", waist is 42".

and nobody calls me Francis. (Stripes refrence)

Larry, the "Hurdy Gurdy" and the "Roly Poly" man were both fictional characters in a Donavan song in the late 60's. The song started "Looking on a sea of tranquility" came the "Hurdy Man" singing songs of love but he couldn't calm the sea so they called out the "Rolly Polly" man and he took care of things. My middle name is Francis and at your size I'll call you what ever you want. Regards, Jay

Height 5'-11". Weight 175. Chest 41", waist 33". Too much of what was on the upper chest has slumped to the waist. I blame gravity. My wife blames beer and indolence. In distinct risk of developing "Dunlap's Disease."

For those of you unfamiliar with the dreaded Dunlap's, its symptoms manifest themselves when people, mostly wives and young kids, loudly exclaim: "hey, your belly done lapped over your belt."
