Now we have other things to worry about.
We do, I just so rarely get to hear the other side of it.

It's a 22 Regency, which means it should be a 22 footer, but it measures 24 feet. I believe they had too much Rakia when they were measuring it.

He went back and studied and got some time in small jets. this is what he flies now.
The first one is a Hawker 4000 and the second one is a Premier 1A dont ask me about the dinosaur it just kinda showed up.
A buddy of mine has been flying the high rollers from Power Corp all over the planet for years now.

He really has a sweet, sweet job!

Up here in Quebec, that's called a party boat!
Very nice, but I don't see the CP decal anywhere

My son asked if he could take it home last year to do some stereo work on it. When he returned, it had about 12 speakers in it, two amps, a remote for the stereo, Ipod connector, two auxiliary speakers for the back end, and a trunk speaker. Stand back when that thing starts blasting music! All I demanded was a switch to allow me to listen to some nice easy music, so he installed a "DAD" switch which turns off all the amps and speakers except for two of them.

Sounds like a reasonable compromise

I would love a boat like that but would never be able to get it into the lakes we spend most of our good times on due to a lack of roads.

So I'm stuck with a canoe for now, until I retire to the Ligurian Riviera.

Hm ? I am wondering, if you supply it with oars ? I see, there are enough powerful speakers, so under appropriate rhythm youth can row and you Mark may even practice water skiing behind it ? a little double distillated rakia will fire with enthusiasm oarsmen ?
