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.

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

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.

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

Condolences.
Don't limit your self to boats from the US. There is a ton of nice boats cheap in Europe!
And its a BFS back home!
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 #)
