« on: January 04, 2012, 04:17:10 AM »
I just did a version upgrade of the forum. Also upgraded a bunch of the modules as well.

I also added a 'like' system where you can like posts made by others. the like button is near the 'quote' button. Under each post that is 'liked', there will be a list of users who liked it.

Of course, there are a lot of features the site has to offer, but are not available through tapatalk (smart phone app). If you regularly access the site via Tapatalk, youre missin out  ;) Maybe some day when I have a crapload of time, I will make a SCJB cell phone app. But for now, tapatalk is your best bet.

And lastly, I depend on you guys to report bugs, errors, things missing, etc. ....and suggestions are always welcome.

Well, my involvement goes back to before I was born. I know there are family members reading this and they can vouch for some of these stories.....

It all begins with the Wriedt Stinger. This boat was bought new in '69 by a close friend of my cousin's grandfather. His mother?s family got hooked and bought the boat from him that next summer.

Later my aunt and uncle exposed my parents to the boat bug and soon later my dad purchased a Tahiti Tiger (unknown year).... This boat was later sold to a neighbor of ours in Apple Valley after we had purchased a 'Strange Boat' (Eliminator hull copy). This boat was purchased in a partnership with my dad's other brother and was later signed over to my dads brother when we moved to Colorado since we wouldn?t be local to it anymore. I was about 16 at the time and from what I figured, my boating days were over. But from what I have been told. I was basically born with a life vest on. My parents took me to riverland (parker) when I was 2 weeks old.... and going out there every summer for years.

It wasn?t until the summer of '06 my cousin Kyle and now roommate invited me out to Havasu. I had not been out there in 15 years other then to help my grandfather move back to California after my grandmother passed away and that was a very short turn-around trip. I was surprised that Kyle still had the good ol' wriedt stinger. I guess it had been sold back n forth within the family and he had finally got it back. I really just thought it was going to be a trip where I would go out to reminisce and go home and be over it. We got out there at midnight on a Friday night and drank till 6am sharing stories of us growing up on the river. We got on the water that Saturday morning at 7am and blasted out to the middle of the lake and he cut the motor. Kyle turned to me and said "this is the best part", then jumped in the lake. Words cannot describe the feeling of jumping into the lake when its over 100F at 7am. There?s that first 2 feet that luke warm, then you hit that blast of cold water under the surface. At that point, I had realized what I was missing in life and I was hooked again. I told Kyle at that point I knew it and that it was my goal to get a boat once again.

At home I had 3 VW's. Within the next couple of weeks, I sold them all. I was over wrenching on cars and now my love is all for boats.

So since that trip, Kyle has moved in and we decided to restore the boat that started it all. It's coming along quite well but we have hit a roadblock (funds for gel coat) and we are nervous that we aren?t going to have it completed for this summer. I don?t think I can go a summer with no boat while I hear about all of you having great times. I hope it all comes together in the end.

My future goal is to get a boat for myself. Currently with Kyle's boat in the garage, I don?t have anywhere to store a project of my own, plus I don?t need 2 projects if I cant afford to finish the first one. The motivation is there, just not the money.

I have been telling myself to go back up to Apple Valley and see if my neighbor still has our old Tahiti Tiger. When he bought the boat, he modded the hell out of the original olds that was in it and blew it the first time he took it out. When we moved, it was still sitting on the side of his house untouched.

That would be cool to buy that boat and Kyle and I would be carrying on the torch that started it all.
