    Thats right, youre hearing it as soon as I am hearing it.

    There is a chance that El Conquistador, my lil 14 foot darling of the high seas, may have to get an eviction notice.

    This is a sure thing if one other thing happens....

    I will send her to missouri to spend out her days in the warm muddy waters of the mississippi river, but only if I get my dream boat....

    My bro cant take his big boat south with him cause he wont have storage. If it works out, I will trade out for his 19.5 foot, 7 foot beam, 115 horse mercury powered aluminum center console Lowe. Its a 1993 and it is the pride of the family, having been the family boat since its purchase in 1996.

    Keep your fingers crossed cause if this happens we are hitting quanacassee and Im driving and I can take up to 6 passengers. Now THAT would be a Fantabulous time.

    If it happens Ill have to come up with a purty name.... but I aint gonna play name games till I can get things worked out.

    Keep your fingers crossed!!!!!!!


    WOOOOHOOOOOO!!!!!!

    its a done deal. I found out last night.


    I gotta get some paperwork in order and sell off El Conquistador, but its as good as mine as of this mornin.

    More goodies...

    The new boat's got ship to shore, a CD player, 4 downriggers, planer boards, 2 55 gallon waterproof bins and one 25 gallon livewell. 30 gallon under-floor fuel tanks, and all the hookups for my fishmark 480- which will be switched with a cuda 128 thats on the big boat now.

    Im tellin ya, Don.. you're in for a helluva ride.

    I broke the speed wheel off the transom 3 years ago, just as I was clocking 59 mph at 3/4 throttle on this boat. It can get anywhere.

    Its also been VERY well taken care of. My bro rebuilt the starter last year and fished it about 100 hours over the last 2 years. Before that my dad bought the motor new and fished it about 20 hours over the course of 3 years. Its practically new.



    Im just tooooo excited....



    Aww man.... Im up in the clouds today. I wish I could bottle and sell this feeling.

    Hey bro, I am very happy for you! Sounds like its going to be a fun summer for you! I look forward to seeing some pics! Oh yeah that reminds me. A week or so ago, someone made a post saying they would give a reward (rep) for anyone that could produce a pic of you actually fishing! I told um I had seen one, but I dont think they believed me:rolleyes: I know you can show um now!:)

    Actually Delta its all a ruse.

    I dont fish. Im allergic to water.

    Im actually a lobbyist hired by the catfish of the united states of America. My job is to infiltrate catfishing websites and to negatively influence them.

    You know how hard it will be for the catfish at the Catfish Secret Service Headquarters to photoshop me actually fishing? Have you ever tried to use a mouse with bony fins? The slime shorts the mouse right out almost immediately. Plus, Im so allergic to water that even a picture of it makes me get hives.

    LOL

    Sparky,
    Its gonna be the same rules as before cause its the same guy as before in the captain's chair.

    As long as you keep bringing that Cavendar's and pork steak to the campfire you can raise whatever hell you want on my boat. Im easy to bribe.

    LOL

    Hey man,
    Pork Steak and Greek Seasoning is always near the fire. I might even round up some eggs and hash browns.
