Really glad for the invite though. You really have your crap together for a High Schooler.

My son is a Senior in High School and my daughter is a Sophomore in college.

Saw your posts in FC. Good job!

Thanks for the compliments, though I really can't take any credit.. The only reason I have the opportunities that I do is because of all the incredibly nice people at the Ocean Springs Yacht Club. They said they liked my attitude, so the sailing director hired me as his assistant, or "Boatswain", haha.

Would you like me to keep you posted on the regatta schedule for next summer? I hear about all of them within a 100mi radius, the sailors always talk about how they'll be winning the next one on so-and-so beach..

Do your children sail?

My is is starting to get into it a bit. He likes the small boats. He doesn't really like sailing on the J35. So he is stoked about getting the Hobie's. We'll be doing quite a bit of sailing nest season if he stays in our area for college and it looks like he will.

He definitley gets off on working on them.

As far as racing way down there, that will be very difficult for me. Limited in time. When I go down there I am expected to go see relatives anyway.

Thanks for the invite man!

Maury

Tiger Woods would be a fool to set foot on the golf course with only one club, Maury. Keep buying boats, you'll need one of each kind for each occassion.[fishing, day sailing, beercan racing, blue water cruising, poker runs, etc...] Be proud of your affliction !

Hello! Thank you XS! My thoughts exactly. Lol.

If I want to drop a line in the fishing hole or cruise around our inland lake with a couple of toddys I don't want to use the Hobie. I want to use the Pontoon. (putter)

If I want to go fishing over on another lake or river near us we need the Whaler. (9 iron)

If my girlfriends little girls want to fart around in front of the cabin we go with the paddleboat. (wedge)

If my son and his buds want to go float down the river near our town of course we have the canoe. (3 iron)

And......

If we want to raise hell out on Lake Huron when it's blowin' 25 then we bring out the Hobies. Tawas is 20 minutes from our cabin. Wouldn't It be nice to have have the option of having 2 boats in case you want to race each other or you have several people up at the cabin who want to try it? (DRIVER)

Why not right? They are dirt cheap in Michigan this time of year. Plus I don't know if I will like the 18 or the 16 better. I can always sell the others if I choose to.

Thanks for seeing it my way XS!

Best Regards,

Maury
