    Just a slightly different take in a past hobby of mine...

    "It's easy to make a small fortune in racing.
    Start with a big one."

    Ive always heard the joke of when are the two happiest times in a boat owners life? The day he bought it...etc.

    Personally I don’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t have a great time on the water. From being a kid growing up in the islands to living in Florida. From skiing behind a sea doo to diving off a 46 Bertram. With an elementary schooler now the time we spend on the water, taking trips, camping or learning about nature is the best gift I can give to my family. No doubt it costs a sh!t ton but I cant think of a better way to spend time with family and friends.

    You know it’s not safe to swim in a marina, right?

    Salt water... Is a whole lot safer than fresh water.

    Mark, if that's you, you are a crazy MoFo! I remember my years in the sound and I think winter to summer the water temp warmed from 52 to 56 degrees. Just looking at that makes my chinkys shrivel up.

    My marina is pretty shallow. I’d come out with a face full of oyster shells or a concussion.

    Were you swimming around, looking for open holding tank seacocks? Each their own I guess. My inner neurotic-ism (is thst a word??) would be off the charts!
