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

Very sorry to hear about the loss of your boat and I can see how your marina went from being quite safe to quite dangerous because of the drought. The only consolation from an event like this is that it gives you an opportunity, perhaps unwanted, but an opportunity nonetheless.

Back home on Lake Ontario after something over 36,000 nm circumnavigator. Not surprisingly there is a lot of stuff I want to get done on Ainia both cosmetically and functionally. Getting an early start so it will be ready to go for next summer (Lake Superior?).

Smack - we miss your boundless enthusiasm and ascerbic wit. Come back soon.

When the time is right, I have no doubt that Smack2 will sail into your life; but damn, I am sorry for your loss.

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

Oh no, Smackdaddy, I just read about your boat. Very sorry to hear that. I can't recommend you what boat you should have, since I am bootless becasue I don't know what to buy. . However, I can buy some some cool stuff from your site.

If you happen to buy a 2013 HR 412, I'd like to take a pic myself.

Dude needs something that can't be trapped in some cheapass artificial lake, surrounded by lee shores.

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

First I'd heard of this unfortunate event.
That's the pits kiddo, hope the insurance check is on it's on way.

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

Best of luck in your search.

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

I didn't realize so few knew of this. Smack posted it in his BFS thread. A real tragedy.

I'm willing to bet he's out of touch because he rented some scuba gear and is now at 100 ft below the surface in recovery mode. Recovering the bottle of rum he told us was aboard.

There must be some legal/insurance mess over this one. I understand he had liability but no hull coverage. One question is going to be what liability the marina holds for not properly afixing a bumper that he pointed out had fallen off prior to the storm. Hard to say it would have mattered.

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

just found out about this....

I have not read the entire thread, but why are all the bows facing towards the dock?

I would think bow facing the open water would be better... some marina rule? (need to read the registration #)
