Yep, the water sucks here. We can't wait to get over to the Bahamas.

That's odd, San Diego has got the best kelp beds in the world which makes for the best diving. At least they did when I dove there awhile ago. I used to pay my bar tabs with lobster tails and abilones.

san diego and catalina, and outer islands have kelp forests, but the water is not cold, its ice cubes.....

the rock lobsters, (bugs) are tasty.. yummm.... but, you cant see more then 5-10 ft, and need some serious wet suit action... and I really dont like wet suits if i can avoid them...

I grew up on Oahu waters and refused wet suits there too... if i have to wear a suit it will be a shorty... or nuttin at all... besides they really arent flattering on a fat dude... heheheheh

so, how hard would it be to drag a boat across country? Can my Chevy Blazer handle it? I do have a heavy duty hitch package on it that i only used once to drag bicycles... hehehehe

would i need permits for 30' or less?

anyone else drag their boats anywhere...

it would be bad...


i would like to do the polar bear thing... jumping into frozen water, but i would jump right back out and stand into a fire pit or something...

If it's under 8'6" beam and under 14' tall on the trailer you don't need any permits.......what sort of chevy blazer are we talkin here? something like and s-10 would die on short order attempting to haul a boat cross country. the full size may fare better depending on the boat. Our 32' boat weighs in at 15,000lbs.

the downhill part after the continental divide should be ok--is just getting to that point might be a tad difficult..... but if it doesnt blow up by then ye should be ok,, kinda..SERIOUSLY--the trailer will drive the tow vehicle, not a good situation.

Just as well, Bergovoy, I had a super duty Ford 1ton that I moved a few boats with, but I was pushing the limits when hauling a boat that displaced 7,000lbs. Whether you want to get a boat in Florida, Texas, or anywhere else, I'm sure it won't take long to find the right one when you arrive.

yea, i guess..... im in a funk again.... anxious... but scared. afraid i will 'pick' the wrong city to land in, scared i will not find a decent boat for the price... afraid the boat i find will be in a different city after i sign a lease...and everything else that can go wrong on a trip across the country..

my back is killing me the last couple days... and my feet are friggin deadly right now.. i really want them cut off at the ankles..... arrrgghhhh.... wonderng how i will get my meds while cruising....

omg, from your lips to gods ears...I actually never thought about that, but yes, I can see that it could be possible... and i would love nothing more ...

I ahve been taking class 1 narcs for almost 10 years now... and have been fortunate in that they have only increased the strength only once in that time... and I have gone without meds for 2-3 weeks without any indication of 'withdrawls', but the pain levels were thru the roof...

I would be in heaven if i could get off them... my life seems to be dictated by when i take meds during the day...
