  • What Do You Think About This Idea ??

    With the potential for the fishing in Destin this year being impacted, potentially pretty seriously... I have a thought which I'd like to toss out for discussions...

    What say we get back to our common boating (Mako) bonds, and bring with us all the props, and similar equipment, etc that we can and spend at least part of one day trading props, etc. Basically have an "Experiment Day" to see what works and helps us learn how to with each others help?

    Shoot, we spend nearly 365 here discussing and yakking endlessly sometime, mostly about just that sort of stuff anyway... AND, it is after all what brought us all together in the first place, so why not make this gathering about the boats and boating as opposed to being about the fishing?

    JMHO & $0.02...

    I think that is a pretty neat idea, but what about us that have nothing to bring to the party??? I guess it would be kinda like going to a swingers party by yourself.. nothing to loose everything to gain[B)][:0][}][][]

            I'm down w/ the boating vs. fishing idea. Sounds like there are going to be so many new faces and conversations in limited time. Let's do it on our makos! (that could be the slogan on the back of this years T'shirt) []

                      You are absolutely correct, because of the lost room the tow strap takes up, but my Ford buddies would be disappointed if I didn't have a way to help get them out of their drive way...[][][]
