    Remember when this used to be a .....

    Hot rod OB site?

    You know, before it became another facebook/politico site.
    Cause we need another (bazillionth) site on the same **** the rest are all posting/talking about.

    Why I don’t go on those sites either.

    I just want to read/talk about boats like we used to.

    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    I'm with you and had similar thoughts recently as well. I do FB to keep in touch with a few friends & mainly family, but not for boating etc.

    Sorry man, you just have to ride it out.

    Maybe go and build a deck, or a pool with a deck, or something.

    Not like it is hard to get lumber if one is motivated.

    I also miss the times in the past when there were lots of rebuilds and stuff about boat mods too. Still a ton of good info, cool stories, photos etc. here and real good people too. It might be time to just remove the political section. With the crazy political world we are in there is no use arguing about it. I decided a while back not to post in it any further. I am in favor in it going away. It just divides us. Lock it or whatever....Let's just focus on the good things about our performance boats community.

    You may be right gentlemen, but what good is boating when there is no "free" country to boat in? The left will scream like they always have. If there is only one side to be heard, that side will win. I wont stand before God and have him ask me, "Did you do your best?" and be able to say "yes" if I dont do my best.

    finished,

    Like Chaz said.....post it, and they will come. I will try and post my build soon, but without my coatings here(account is set up now), all I have to show right now is sandblasted parts.

    There also used to be a plethora of knowledge on here, but some really good guys stopped posting due to all the bashing that happened, some really good guys, while other members who were not very good/ honest businessmen got to stay ( Eagle one comes to mind)

    Wed night at Tanner park - I live nowhere close to it, but loved getting on here on Thursday to read all the great/ funny comments - Phastboat comes to mind, as does P22 - I would laugh out load at the stories from those guys and all the back and forth - 90% was all in good nature/ fun.

    I too miss the way it used to be.

    Gents S&F is awesome! I enjoy this site more and more and keep learning and dreaming and buying parts and hulls. Having a total blast here! I don’t think it’s quite fair at all to blame S&F for the modern day political climate.

    guys it’s nuts simple. Today’s thoughts become tomorrow’s reality. Think and focus on good things and good times and tomorrow that’s exactly what ye shall have.

    They want to shut down boating on all inland waters. Make the Intercoastal Waterway .. all idle zone from Maine to Miami. Every year they tighten the knot.
    AOC said the other day that gasoline needs to be $13.00 a gallon under the green new deal. Open boarders and magnets offered to bring droves of people from third world countries. Not where I want to live.
    I'm guilty of looking the other way for way too long .. Ohh, it's just foolish talk. No my friends .. it's not. They make it into reality when we let them.
    The worst part is when you prove the left wrong .. they refuse to be wrong at any cost. Nothing good can come from that.
    Keep your head in the sand .. or get out and vote for America !


    Keith,
    Sand blasted parts are cool ... <----(dry film coating)

    Not blaming S/F.

    Kinda like watching NFL. Used to be a 3 hr escape from reality.
    Now it’s spoiled ass punks telling us what to think and blaming everything on us.

    I spent the last 30 yrs clicking on here to learn.

    A new bottom design.
    A new porting idea.
    A new combustion chamber design.
    A new rigging trick, etc.

    Facetrash took a lot of that away.

    Now w/our political war front......, it spills over on us.
    We will fight for our country. Agreed and onboard.

    Now, its just one less happy place to go for a release/escape from reality.
