voting down Jon just because he's a Bucknut. He may leave and then there would be no evidence of life in Ohio. Seriously, give the guy a break.

for little return
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Atually regretted selling my last one||
since it was easy to trailer and store. Also didn't have time to list and sell so first good offer took it.17 foot was a bit small as i was finding myself out on the ocean and bay more than the river or lakes. No regrets with the present one even though It was not cheap nor a great deal. Bought it from somebody I trusted which made it worth every penny. it's definately worth the money to let somebody else outfit the electronics engines etc and take the hit. If you know and trust the seller give him what he wants. Don't get a "great deal" only to find the previous owner didn't take care of it
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Boats boats and more boats||
I live in San Francisco in one of the best boating areas in the US . We have 5 enviornments here: Sacramento and San Joaquim rivers, resevoirs ( lakes ), San Francisco Bay, Pacific coast ( say up to 5 miles out ) and off shore . I have seen storms on Lake Erie that are pretty rough so I would put the lakes ( except Superior ) similar to the Pacific coast .
That said I would say the difference between a boat you trailer and one you have in a marina is mobility. Out here I have a trailerable 21 foot Arima ( a west coast boat similar to a Grady White or other ocean fishing boats ) and I can go to any launch or if the weather on the Ocean or Bay is bad I can go to the river or delta on a whim. I can also go to any gas station to fill up ( we are in the usual full out gas panic and average price now approaching $4 a gallon and over $5 at the marina) With a large cabin cruiser in a marina you will be limited to that immediate area. The speed on these 25+ foot boats is usually about 12-15 mph ( anything higher and fuel costs soar ) so unless you are spending a whole weekend a time onboard your marina needs to be where you want to go and where you are going to gas up.
My buddy just bought a 1970 31foot woodie docked on the Sacramento River Delta. That boat would be GREAT out on the bay but it would take all day and a ton of gas to get it there. Marinas on the bay are a 2 year wait and about $500 a month ( he pays $275 there ) with EXPENSIVE gas. We take my boat all over the place because we can go anywhere on the trailer.
And no off season here. Always can go boating SOMEWHERE any time of year, maybe just not your first choice . If the ocean weather sucks likely can go to the river or the Bay. Halibut or Stripers vs Salmon.

|5 weeks 4 days ago||Wasteland||
is dear to my heart . The old county hospital was there and was a great place for a UM med student to learn things without a million other Drs in line. Used to say if you didn't do something at the county your patient would die in hours. At the VA if you didn't do something they would die in years...

can't ever be embarrased by that one
|5 weeks 5 days ago||Rough crowd||
Which is why I never start posts any more ( that and I don't have any news on the west coast that somebody out there didn't already hear about )
|5 weeks 5 days ago||True, a Meniscus tear of that degree||
is a career ender. Hopefully will get a degree at least.

|6 weeks 6 days ago||Maybe he was saying that out of respect/s||
in that " I respect you so much I am comfortable using the n word when I express my outrage that a tall cracker beat my team that was ordained by God to never be defeated "
Yeah, I think that was the real message.

Wouldn't this sum it up ?
|8 weeks 2 days ago||wife from Rochester NY and me from Flint||
When her first husband died she moved back....all of 3 weeks. Came back with no friends of family. I moved out here with no friends or family. Sure it is tough raising kids without family but winter is a major league cluster f%^& and I do not know too many people who would move back to it or move to it without a major upside ( big promotion ). To take a pay cut to go back to winter ? I'm not sure you could convince a lot of folks to do that. Especially if she doesn't have a job in Mi yet. Don't get your hopes up.
|8 weeks 2 days ago||You want to move out of SF Bay ?||
You sir are nuts. You ain't never takin' me back.

|10 weeks 5 days ago||can't generalize hoppy beers||
remember hops were originally as a preservative. IPAs were very hoppy to last the trip to India. I am drinking a Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale now that is over a year old and has lost nothing. This has been true year to year with this hoppy brew.
