Not to change the subject, but changing it anyway. Did you see the Coast Guard Helicopter in hurricane Sandy doing the HMS Bounty Rescue on tv tonight? It was on at 5 o'clock on the Weather Channel called "Coast Guard: HMS Bounty Rescues". The one swimmer that jumped into the water and swam over to the life raft said he took off his mask and said to the folks inside, "Hey, I am Dan, I heard you guys need a ride", now that's Awasome. He's the guy I would want to see when things weren't looking so good. It would just help to turn things a bit more normal.

Okay, ill get off my butt and upload the Slo-mo video of our own helicopter coast guard heros flying to save down pilots on our very own Spreckels Lake.

Hey, thanks for sharing your find. This website is to big for me to see much of it. I can only imagine the cool stuff that is in here someplace. So when you can pan out a golden nugget like this and then share it. I thank you.


Yes, yes, yes, ill post it. Just juggling to many little things and forget to stay up late to get caught up on the IMPORTANT STUFF !

good one. I have seen one at lakeside before not so long ago. it looked like it ran good. maybe a roll of pennies is all that would be needed and a metal prop. but that's nothin. all those lake side parents that want to get started to let little William have fun asking where can they get a boat, well this is just the ticket. comes with everything needed. but to answer your question, nope. can't remember who the perp is. but one could save 40 bucks and just pick it up lakeside. runabouts are fun little boats.

This is definitely a great boat! only 2 hours left till the auction ends! Just a heads up in case anyone was eying for a boat like this.

For my sins I have been punished.... I have been elected the new Power Squadron Officer for The Club.

I voted against me on general principal (and just to be cantankerous), but I were outvoted!

Oh yes, almost forgot - Dec 15th is the annual SFMYC Club Parade of Lights Flotilla and Festival starting around 17:00 (5pm)

The Weather Channel even says we should what nice weather - So be there, ya scruvey dogs!
