The No Wake Zone / Re: Bail YOU out , REALLY !

I am a Hollywood Teamster Local 399. But for my job, it is salary. Have never worked less than 60 hours a week and over 100 hours on some 7 day weeks. I guess unions are like every other thing in life. Some good, and some bad. The system is flawed. But there is so much corruption, there is no easy fix. Time to shake it up a bit!

Looks like we know who should be running this operation! SoCalJetBoat members. I like the 200K a year too. But I would also like health insurance! And, where are the torpedo tubes? Need those for the project.

Damn bro! Sorry to hear about your friend. I have been at the hospital all day after finding out my Mom has cancer and neaded emergency surgery. No waiting. And I have never even had her on the boat! Might of scared her but it would have been a great memory. So pay attention to every single day. Make time for the things you enjoy. Every moment matters.

Reagan bailed out Chrysler in the early '80s! And here we are again times 10. This is so deep there will never be a clear resolution. It is sad to imagine such a lucrative business cannot turn a profit.

I have a tat on my foot. Super pain! Not like the ones on my back, side, or arms! So I bet that had to hurt. Like a nail scratching a sun burn! But looks damn good!

Omar "beerjet." You are the only one who contacted me when my son went on chemo and my life was crushed. How caring that was!!!!! I am know living in Texas to deal with his condition. (miss SoCal) Your PMs helped me stay positive. And I appreciate your time and effort responding to my posts. Drinking is not evil, until it hurts your family. Your post was from a man who desires to excel. And I am sure you will. Best wishes. Will be in SoCAl in 2009 for work. Look forward to meeting. My Jet will be in Texas. Need to go jettin' with friends out there! (ride along and will cover gas money)

This is deep. Could go on forever. Alcoholic is a very American term. My Euro friends drink 6 pints every night. Alcoholic or social drinking? If you are hurting your family or abusive, it is a problem. If you are just killing the the last hours of the day, seems OK. If you are with friends working on your jet boat, seems like good social drinking times. The debate could go on forever. When my son went on chemo my drinking increased. Thought I had to kill the pain. Too much to bear. And the tumor fight will continue his entire life. I still drink. But try to limit it to fun/social drinking with friends wrenching on cars or boats. Sometimes fear of my son's future grabs me and I drink. But I am trying to get a grip on it.

PS He loves jet boating. I have never drank and piloted my Taylor. So more time with my son. Best wishes to you for any decision you come to. Could have been just a bad night you shared with your jet boat friends. It is nice to be understood. We are bretheren of water power!

Project Boats For Sale / Re: 1984 Taylor BR What do you guys think of these?

I have a 1979 Taylor SJ and I love it! Well built hull. These boats were built in Oklahoma by Oscar Taylor. They have a cult following. The BR is rare as well. Check out the Taylor Boat Roost for more info.

Thumbs up to ALL American V-8s! If it is jet with Americam V-8 who cares? Let's stick together before some 4 stroke Honda weedwacker smokes us. This is our heritage! BIG V-8s that chug gas and smoke ass! My 2 cents.

I currently have D3VE heads on my BBF 460. Are these good? Or can I upgarde for a reasonable price? Bottom end is stock with an A impellor on a Berkeley Jet. Seems to have an RV type cam. Just want to see what it will take to get some more power. Will I need to switch to an A/B to see good results?

spilling is not always bad. spill it in a special place and say - "let me get that for you!"
