Thanks Guys & Gals

Thanks for helping me make Sanjoh's 50th a memorable one.....we all had a great time as always having cheers with our friends, riding and non-riding variety. What's up for this weekend? Birthday bashes? FL Pepper, Fe Mi Ride and Sanjoh all done. Anyone riding?

"Big" Lake Kerr, Oscar

Headed up there not this but next WE the 28th through Monday the 2nd

Sad to have missed John's party

But it's a good thing I didn't go

My Dad had an accident in his boat Saturday

A rogue wave through all his gear out and he bailed when he thought the boat might sink

Been in the hospital since Sunday with an infection in his hand

It was only a slight cut initially from the accident

He's fine now though due to heavy antibiotics

OMG! Hope your dad will be fine.
Lake Kerr may be a bit far for a day trip, but maybe in the fall??

Picking him up today Paula/Oscar

Gotta go find his tackle

He's way more pissed due to the fact that he can't replace the reels he lost

They're Garcias that are no longer available; he found those on e-Bay

He likes them Oscar because when a big fish jumps you can loosen the drag by reeling back on the handle

Some of that 'old' stuff is really better than the newer china-products we get. The days of bronze or SS gears are over for most reels..Now it is all diecast zinc.....Saltwater loves that stuff. One time in the saltwater and bye bye reel..
In freshwater you only have to dry everything out, add some lube and off you go

let's go diving and salvage his gear!

I was diving off my 15 whaler about a 1/2 mile offshore and a rogue flipped me right over (stern over bow). A jet skier came and pulled my capsized boat in to shore with me standing on it to a herd of canadians who then flipped the boat back over. SeaTow came running up the beach in their monster 4x4 and wanted to salvage the boat but I told them to kiss my A$$ after he quoted me some ridiculous price and then the jetski came back towed me back to the boat ramp. The following 2 days I went back out to the same area and combed the area and found every nut, bolt and clamp that fell out as well as all my dive gear, a bag of about 12 lobsters, 3 new honey holes and a speargun...

What an adventure that was!!!

He too was in a 15 foot skiff

Flat bottom though

His gear is in three feet of water

That's right, a three foot wave in three feet of water

Any higher and it would have broke
