Re: A have a serious problem

If we substituted the word "wife" for "boat," this would be a fun thread.

yes it would - although in our cultures we don't "own" wives and having more than one is generally illegal. (besides - no way my wife would agree to this kind of arrangement)

Why is it that everything in this life that is fun is either illegal, immoral or fattening?

I can't help myself either. I expressed how much I liked the Piver. I also have had a Sunrunner 31. To get a **** storm going. It was fast, so was the Piver, but the Sunrunner didn't point worth a damn.

The devil made me post it.

Positions available, please forward your maintenance resume, paying special attention to electrical and fairing skills. Willingness to long board for days at a time is considered a bonus.
