Picked up my 1984 17SS from my dealer yesterday - brand new Johnson 70 with new binnacle,gauges,cables, harness, oil tank,etc all for 5 G's out the door. Havent even turned the engine over yet but the weekends here! Unfortunately, here is Ft Lauderdale and we seem to have an unexpected guest for the weekend - Michelle. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!

Want to share some misery? Misery is returning from a trip to Logan airport, dropping the wife off for a trip to St.Martin. Up at 4:30am..home at 9:30am. Upon returning, noticing that the tide is rising, the bay is calm, and the temp. is 67* (In Maine, in Nov.!)
Misery is pulling in to the driveway and seeing your Montauk all winterized and waiting to be covered! My kingdom for one more trip! Arrgh.....

Beautiful day here in Seattle for November. It should be close to 60 today, sunny and no wind.
The Montauk sits in the driveway winterized, no big deal, I could have it ready to go in 30 minutes.
But alas the wife has commited us to attending a wedding today. I hope the newlyweds appreciate my sacrifice in missing a beautiful fall day of boating.

Bobber, I picked up my first Whaler yesterday too. I am also in Ft. Lauderdale, and it looks like we will be spared for the most part. However it isn't a boating day by any means. Can you imagine trying to get out of Port Everglades, Haulover, or Government Cut right now?

On October 31, 1991, we in Minnesota had a 29" snowfall, which paralyzed Minneapolis; they were cutting boats out of the lake with chainsaws because the ice formed so fast. Today, exactly 10 years later, we re-launched our 17 Katama, since it's 60 degrees and beautiful sunshine. A classic bonus fall day, and a glass-like lake. What a way to spend the weekend. Wish you folks in FL good luck through the hurricane. Take care...

Misery is having the local municipal ramp in town located on the Arthur Kill.

Misery is having the Arthur Kill closed from sundown to sunup by the Coast Guard in striped bass season. The muncicipal ramp closes at 3:30 PM and doesn't open until 8:00 AM. No sense bringing the Montauk up from Ocean County for striper season this year.

The terrorists can all be shot at dawn, I'll contribute to the bullet fund.

Sorry guys but Chas. SC is wonderful!! Off yesterday and surf fished the ocean side of a barrier island for BIG spotail bass...none to be found! 2 sharks, 2 bluefish, 1 sea turtle (he won!) The water's about 60 something but bearable...today we shrimped and did not much...tried a new spot and the daytime is not the time to be there...but in the boat on the water makes up for it!! Gotta luv the south!!!

Misery = a) Having my Whaler winterized on an amazingly beautiful weekend. b) Having to drive 6hrs from Long Island to Maryland to visit wife's former stepmom who's married to a sour old bastard with a bad cold and fever. c) Getting a bad cold and a touch of bronchitis on said trip. d) Worse part, watching Yanks lose 15-2 to Diamondbacks while sour old bastard makes anti-Yank slurs, puts tv on remote at crucial moments and channel surfs between pitches, innings, and during coughing fits! But I got a Whaler and sour old bastard only has a rusty old pickup which may die before he does. So life ain't that bad....
