Wondering the same....honestly, so many former members/contributors from years back have dropped out, and so few visit with any regularity, that, frankly, it isn't very productive to check it out what's what here all that much anymore... well, so, everything runs it's course, and maybe this place has. Too bad, because it's been a big help to many in the past.

As for me I'll be in VT drinking beer on my pontoon boat for the next 3 weeks with very limited computer access - a good thing afaic.a g

OK, so are you simply going to be sitting on the pontoon boat in the yard, or are you actually going to be putting it on the water? I do check a couple times a day to see if anyone posts, not much going on right now, mostly landscaping myself, haven't gotten to do anything on any of the cars, but I did just spend five hours waiting for the headliner in the wife's Mini to be replaced!

Well I don't leave it on the mooring when I'm 300 miles away... would you?  She'll be floating again shortly. I'll make sure to get some pics hoisting a cold one or hauling in a few perch for supper.

You're close Steve... she's the USS "Tiki 'Toon"... Mai tais, Daquiris and  Red Stripe are served on deck at  the dot at 5. Come on up... we're only 5 hrs from Joisey, our next door neighbor is from Verona. We all have a pretty good time ... and at our age, why not?? Heck to the yeah!  All here are welcome!

I've been on boats all my life.  Dad was LT, then Captain after the war, on USS Anzio Escort Carrier  CVE-57 for 5 yrs during WWII. He loved the water, so we always had some kind of a boat growing up... no yachts, just little runabouts, but always something to be out on the water.  It's in the blood. If I hadn't been married I'd have gone NROTC instead of ROTC in '68.  My Dad did NROTC at Tufts Engineering, so he got stuck down in the engine room for the first 3 years. He could tell some stories.

You did ROTC in 68?  I had 3 years of ROT by then.  Where were you?  Had to be High School

I don't see the beer cooler or the Bar-B-Q.  Where's the Hammock?  You have a cover for that?
