Hey Bigshot we haven't heard from you in a while. We all miss your sense of humor. You must be busy selling those 401K's

I saw a rescent post from him in which he mentioned he had been really busy getting his 13'er ready to sell. I also miss his posts, hope he gets that thing sold and gets back to business here!

BS has saved me more money and time than I care to divulge! I hope he's not getting out of the multiple whaler life for long!

Just like a "bad penny" he'll turn up. Or maybe he really had to go back to work:) Regards, Jay

He is stowed away diligently working on his own new and improved proprietary fademeter that will simultaneously check for salinity.

I'm a donut! Been busy working and such on many different things. You think my posting has been lacking, you should see the inside of the montauk. Thing has not been scrubbed since MARCH! The 13 is almost done, just have to varnish the console, paint the bottom and install all the wood. Unbelievable how long it takes to sand and varnish an entire interior that has been "weathered" since about 1980 I think:) Bought a new motorcycle last month and have been spending time on that, etc. Wife had a miscarrige and that has been VERY tough, etc. I'll get back into the swing as soon as I can breath easier and convert this junk to $$$$$$. Seeya!

I have never met you, Nick, but I feel like I know you from reading your many posts. So sorry to hear about the miscarriage. My mother miscarried five times before she had me--I'm glad she kept trying. Wishing you and your wife better luck next time, David in Durham, NC.

That was an easy one. I think that class I took in college(logic & statistics?) taught me about deductive reasoning......cake/pie. I love Tim but sometimes ya gotta wonder if all that upholstery glue is turning his brain to foam or something:)
