I will be out this evening. I have to work the Patrol boat tonight. I would love to get my own out but have to work tonight. Hope I don't see you out there.
I will be working out of St. Clair (city of) not sure who is working the other boats tonight. Have a great day wish. I sure wish I was not here in my office right now. Think my wife would be upset if I played hooky and did not invite her.

And the question for the guys in brown...when do you think some of them can figure out how to back a SR or BW into the slip and not put it sideways(Algonac)? Can one of you guys thats a boater teach them?? I've almost lost a couple cans of Coke watching some of them dock
I have spent many hours ATTEMPTING to teach the guy / girl to dock correctly. Every new person I have worked with this season can now dock a boat. With the weather being so bad I would spend the last hour of our shifts just pulling in and out of the wells in Algonac. They can now back the boat into the well without touching the steering wheel. It is a tough habit to break them of (steering while docking), most have not driven a twin engine boat until now. And yes I have had a few laughs with them, it is sometimes almost as much fun as going to a boat launch and watching.
Gary, with some of them you really have your work cut out for you then
if my neighbor is on his dozer or i'm on the little orange tractor...I just have to stop and watch, still waiting to see my friend Alfred(part timer) wheel one around. If he puts it in the mud or sideways...Thats what I need score cards..
Sorry, just poking fun, i've watch most of the guys and they do handle the boats very well, but a couple of them....can they just work the radios?
QUOTE(pauligan @ Jun 6 2003, 03:47 PM)Admitting here that my best dockings were blowing in close to the docks and throwing ropes at whoever happened to be standing there!!!!
While in training, I nearly drove the boat right into the wall; and would have had the person coaching me not DOVE across the boat and grabbed the pillar with both arms!
But with the learning come the fun..but slivers in the chest from a piling ouch
hope it was a steel piling then ya just get rust stains
And with that I think it time to go...have a good weekend all hmmm maybe a raft burger for lunch
