Hi,

My name is Bryan, and I like long walks on the beach and Elton John records...

Just kidding, not that there is anything wrong with Elton John.

Anyway, I found this forum while searching for an article I had read in Wooden boat. Pop brings the magazine into the shop once in a while and I always enjoy it. For the last 15 years I have been working with my Pop at the family boatyard in New Jersey. We specialize in wooden boat restoration, but actually do anything that puts food on the table. For any one interested more information on the family business can be found on this website I wrote, www.flaniganbros.com

I am a member of only one other forum on the internets (thanks be to Al Gore for his timely invention) that one is Reefs.org which is a place for people interested in keeping reefs in their home.

Anyway, it looks like there are some interesting threads here so I guess I will shut it and start reading...

Bryan

Good website. Welcome to the Bilge.

Are you really from Jersey? Bobbys says he's from Jersey but he doesn't have the accent..........

I am thinking about breaking from the union, we would make the line at shoemaker lane down the road from my shop. I can man the 50 caliber, I just need someone to feed ammo for me....

This place is a lot like the other online forum I hang out at, the sump at Reefs.org. Plus there are threads about boats here. I read about 30 pages of one of the threads "topside" last night. Most enjoyable.

Only fell down once today so it was a good one....

Just fore the fun of it. One of the stickied threads.

I ordered a pole barn last week and by the end of the year it should be set and I am going to start building the happy clam. Should be a fun project for me and my boys...

Don't know about the rest of you guys but I think this FNG might just be what we've been looking for!

Glad you made it here, Bryan!

Doug So true ;) Hellacious storms here, and no tequila...not too happy about THAT. OTOH, Deadliest Catch is on, so I can BOO at that Capt.Derik jerk..I think the Cornelia Marie hates him too.

How is this season? I haven't caught any episodes since last year...

Well, I'm not sure if it's in the script to make Capt. Derik the major jerk. He is a nasty one tho. He gave an interview badmouthing Captain Phil, and the sons (who own 25% each I assume). Then he said Sig isn't a pimple on his a$$. All the time saying what a great friend he was to Phil. The interview was after the filming is done. Might be they are going to phase Cornelia Marie out of the show. A couple of new boats and crews this year.

We have a crab feed and wine drinking bash here{Astoria OR}., A lot of the crews and Captains will be here and have a meet and greet and will show off their custom Harlys.

They also have a Axe men/crab fisherman competition.

Son Andy won the Survival suit swim/race with one of the captains{not sure if he is one on the show} on his 3 man team, Course they wanted a strong surfer swimmer 30 year old on their team.
