  1. I will miss seeing that distinctive burgundy cover as I come in and out at Holiday during this month. But wishing you good fortune Phil.
  2. The only good news to all of this is the fuel we are saving at these high rates. This has been such a hot summer that i have only been out about 25% of the time I am usually out. The heat plus how busy I have been. But I would rather blame it on the heat No worries though as the cooler weather will be here before we know it and then we will all be lamenting about how we can't go out because it is too cold and we have our boats laid up in winterization. Oh, how I do not want to think about that. Happy summer to all!

  4. Hello to all my fellow Chappies! It was great to run into Phil at the Auto Repair place. And always good to see a fellow Chappie. As Phil noted, I am still very busy building my business and also with Rotary. I am now what is called a District Governor-Elect in Rotary which means that on July 1, 2012 I will be District Governor. This is like being a Regional Manager of something but without the comp plan as Rotary is all volunteer. But in reality, the comp plan is better than most in the humanitarianism offered. But I digress... Right now I am in Baltimore on some R&R and checking in on the Father-in-Law. But no worries, son #2 is at home watching the house so any of you that were thinking of coming by to rob that place, think again And yes, he has seen Risky Business and we have reiterated to him the penalties for breaking the crystal egg or putting the convertible in the lake. Anyway, I miss being here with you all and I will try to check in from time to time. Thanks to Roy W for pinging me about this note on the forum.
  5. Greetings LKN Chappies, It has been a while since I have posted I know, but suffice to say I have been swamped! Only had Dox out three times this year. :-( Anyway, I wanted to make you all aware of the Big Day on the Lake on July 16. This is a day where nice kids get a chance they otherwise would not have - a day on the lake with a sponsoring boat. Mrs Dox and I did this last year and we had a great time. I know they are still asking for boat hosts this year and I will paste below what I received via email for your information. And I hope that you will consider being a host to these very nice and deserving (and well-behaved) young folks. Boat Hosts: Big Day at the Lake 7 is ready to set sail July 16! Last year, you and 80 other Boat Hosts created lasting memories for so many of the “Littles” enrolled in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte. Thank you, for being such a “BIG” part of this annual event, and providing an opportunity for these children to explore and enjoy the excitement of aquatics, particularly on the lake. We hope you will join us again this year as a Boat Host. And, if you have a friend, neighbor or colleague who has not participated in Big Day at the Lake, please share with them how this experience has an impact on so many lives. (Dave Yochum is glad to talk with anyone who has questions about Big Day at the Lake, including how to rendezvous with other Boat Hosts, as well as insurance information nebiztoday@gmail.com.) Once again, we’re asking Boat Hosts to meet their Big/Little match where their boat is docked as close to 9 am as possible. Our traditional picnic on the waterfront at Duke’s Energy Explorium starts at 1:30 p.m. Once you’re matched up with a Big and a Little (or two Bigs and two Littles), you will be provided with contact information prior to July 16, 2011. Be sure to contact your Big(s) to organize your meeting place. To register as a Boat Host or for more information go to: www.bigdayatthelake-lkn.com. If you have any additional questions, please contact Wynn Hightower at 704-910-1301 ext. 1024 or via email at wynn.hightower@bbbsclt.org. Thank you for your time and continued support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Charlotte and Big Day at the Lake! We look forward to seeing you July 16! Sincerely, Wynn Hightower If you have already registered for Big Day at the Lake 7, thank you! We are still in need of more boat hosts and need your help!

  6. Terms of Service will not let us use conventional terms for pricing, so since a buck (as in big male deer) is the same as a buck (slang for one dollar), we use the term deer. make sense? If not, no worries. We are a boating forum and the particulars aren't that important anyway. Happy boating!
  7. Congrats on your new ride and welcome to the best lake in the east! There are many great places to visit around the lake and many coves to go into for swimming pleasure, etc. Only thing I would warn against is tubing in coves where there are docks nearby. But when you cruise around you will see where some are tubing. And no worries as from Kings Point there are plenty of places to go. Hope to see you soon on the lake as well. Welcome to the forum. We are glad you are here and believe that you will find answers to a lot of your questions. We also provide some humor, of course at no charge to you other than the initiation fee you paid to join this forum A few pointers for you to do (if you have not already done so) to help us help you: 1. In the upper right where you see your screen name, click on that and you will find two items there. One os My Profile and the other is My Settings. From these two settings, add into your signature your location (geographic area) 2. From the same settings, add into your signature the type of boat you have and its mechanical systems, such as boat type, engine, drives, etc. This way you don't have to type it into to every post you put up. This will help us help you a lot! Without it, you may not get any answers. 3. Use the Search feature of the forum. There is a lot of good information on this forum that will answer many of your questions. We have a lot of experts here with a large amount of life experience. 4. Take a minute to review our Terms of Service, also found in the upper right. There is good information in there that you will want to know including that we cannot discuss pricing for anything. But read some of our other posts on here to learn the work around for that. Most of us use the term "deer" (as in "bucks") as a workaround. 5. We like pictures a lot! So when you get a chance, post some pics of your ride. Read through this thread to learn more about how to do so. 6. Take some time to look through the Information Center (Chaparral Boats Owners Club > Chaparral Boats Forum > Info Center) located under Chaparral Boats Forum on the main page. From there you will find parts guides, brochures, manuals, specifications, canvas installation manuals, vinyl care information, square gauge setup, weather links, computer desktop backgrounds, etc. Lots of good stuff there for you and your Chaparral! 7. Come back early and often to post. We are a community of friendly and some of us are border-line psychotic. But we admit to it and that's the first step to recovery Again, welcome to the asylum/forum and we look forward to more from you. Don't be a stranger.
  8. Thanks all! Yes, I am still kicking! But I have been super busy - so busy that Docksology hasn't even gotten her bottom wet this year. Hopefully this weekend. And hopefully I will get some time to be back here soon! Miss all of you all and the fellowship.
  9. Me too. In fact I think this one was taken in the cove that I look at everyday right out my back window of my home.

    This image was taken right outside of my backyard!
  11. Go visit Howell and sons in Davidson. They have a canvas shop and perform good work and will get you what you need. Sunbrella is the best way to go. A little more expensive (sometimes) but will last you the longest and hold its color the best.
  12. Another satisfied customer all because of Joe. Excellent customer service!
  13. Happy Birthday to Registered (59), Lord Byron (49), Rauno (47), CLH (53), Vino Bambino (50)
  14. Great pics and awesome write-up! Thanks for sharing and let your Admiral and first mates know that they are great photographers.
