Smack's pics are horrific. It looks like someone went through his marina with a chainsaw.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

I agree with all the sentiments expressed above...I couldn't imagine walking down to the dock and not seeing our boat there...knowing that she lies on the bottom...

I will definately purchase some BFS gear to help toward the new boat...

Sorry to hear about the loss of your little ship, Smack.
Any chance of salvaging her? Is it really in 100'?
so sorry, mate.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

Smack allow me to offer my condolences on you recent loss. Sorry to hear about your beloved boat sinking.

It may be too soon to start looking for a replacement, give yourself some time to heal.

Re: Lets choose SmackDaddy's new boat...

That is one of the saddest blog posts I have read in, well, ever.

Looking forward to the "Smack found a new boat" thread. After the "Insurance companies can bite it" and "Boats and legal issues in Tx" threads, of course.

Perhaps some spring lines, as well. The pictures don't show any springs.
