Thanks, ThatsMrMastercraft! I've sure enjoyed her. My brother had a '77, which is where my affinity for the S&S began. My only complaints are: A. It's ridiculously difficult to find parts, etc; and B. I know absolutely nothing about technical information. It seems that nearly every related subject requires learning a new language. For example, I'm really wanting to put a stereo in the boat as I'm a musician and a music fanatic. I want to just run my iPod through an amp, etc, which sound so simple. But I then get bogged down in all the BS about, "Will these speakers sound right with this amp, and all these little symbols next to numbers and how many watts does it really have and blah, blah, blah. Know what I mean? And, yeah, I've checked and read all the threads here and it's just more information than I care to digest. What's so strange to me, though, is that there are a million "experts" out there on the subject, but in four upgraded stereo installations costing in the thousands of dollars, I have NEVER had ONE turn out without major problems. I've spent over two thousand dollars on amps alone on my Dodge 2500 and I still can't find the right "expert." Unreal.

Ok, anyway, enough of that. I hope to be on the lake next weekend or the weekend following. Can't wait!

It's kind of like being a musicain, you wouldn't just buy any mic to sing in, would you? With everything in life having some knowledge about your equipment will really help get the most out of it.

Oh, heeell! I LOVE, LOVE, LOOOOOOOOVE my boat. My favorite thing about it is when I pull into a cove somewhere and there are a-hunnerd wakeboard boats that all look relatively the same and cost eighty grand. They're usually playin' a bunch of crappy hip-hop and have a bunch o' girls you'd never introduce you mom to dancing on the bow. They all stop and stare and give the thumbs up and ask what year, etc, etc. I laugh to myself when I remember the boat only cost me $3850! I pretty much stole it. But it's run like a top from day one. It may be a bit smaller, but that eliminates the possibility of having a bunch o' idiots aboard!

Now, I'm not against all that stuff I mentioned about those other boaters above - I ain't a snob. Just sayin' that I think it's hilarious how you can either spend 50 to over 100k for your "cool" boat that looks like everything else on the lake, or you can buy a Stars & Stripes for a fraction of that and have a boat that's so much finer. I'm just a guy who loves the classic iron when it comes to anything with a motor. It's the same thing when I pull up in my '66 Chevelle SS with ghost flames next to a guy in a porsche at a stop light. I just smile real big when the driver gives the thumb!

I must be a bad student because I have only had my '77 a couple years and we completely understand each other and I have yet to find a woman that I can say the same about.

Women are a mystery, no doubt. But I always find consolation when I think of the old acronym referring to women that stands for Can't Understand Normal Thinking (thought I'd refrain from actually spelling it out). I honestly everyone is pretty much 'tarded. Except me, of course. I'm "Norml."
