Well all I've finally done it. Remember the 95 HP Mercury motor that I told you about. I'm gonna go get it on Wednesday. (10-30-02)
I was talking with my uncle this weekend about the motor, and he said that he had a good deal for me. He has a boat with a blown motor (actually a frozen and busted lower drive) that he would give me a good deal on. So I asked "how much", (knowing full well that I would probably have to try to talk him down, he's had it for a while). His reply, "you'll have to buy the pen for me to sign the title".
Not a bad week! A FREE boat and a FREE motor!
Anyway, on with the BAD part. The boat is built out of a shall we say "OTHER" building material. Other meaning not wood, hemp, old tennis shoes, or dog chew toys. HMMMM how to be PC about his topic. Well let's just say that it's a bathtub with a motor. (yeah that sounds PC?)
Now it will need some work as it has sat for about two and a half years. But hay when I replace the floors I'll put marine plywood back in. And all of the lakes that I'll take it out on will be surrounded by trees. Does this make this horriable thought OK?
If I do get the boat, what then do I do with the WOODEN BOAT fund? Beer, drugs, fishing tackle, WB on cd rom, maybe send it to "LOON" for a trip to the head doctor? ( 2 boats in one week, the man should be sainted) Any suggestions?
PLEASE FORGIVE ME,
