    Just kidding!
    Even if they saw a video on You Tube? How lucky are we to have Nay hanging around. Sure is better than guessing.

      • Pequod, You have many years of experience. If you are like me, and I think you are, you will listen to someones ideas. That is how I learn. However, if someone starts off by telling me that I don't know what I'm doing, I kind of get pissed.

          I entered this life knowing nothing. I will most likely leave this life remembering nothing. Listening to intelligent folks, like the good people on this site have provided me with more great ideas than I can count. Common sense seems to be the norm here, quite unlike many arenas that I have to deal with in my other life. Very refreshing.

            Nahhh... you just like us because we are all boat nuts and we enable each other's spending habits and crazy ideas because we are all addicted to these things! This is a Guilt free zone!

        • Yeah so what's wrong with that? My wife and mother provide all the guilt I need. LOL

                      • I used to use a plasma cutter almost every day when I worked on the tugboats. There was always something we could cut and fabricate. I will still every so often drive down to my old work to get a piece of sheet metal or steel cut.

                        Oh, by the way Karen, the Shamrocks look great. I saw them in a pic the other day installed on your boat. Great job...
