I get things change,  but,  some of us are still here!  Not getting sucked into the Facebook side of scjb!  But it seams like that's where it's going!  I'll never have a fb, maybe some others won't as well, but it's killing the o.g site!!  We only have a few of us shit talkers, song players and question askers,  and it's a small group!  The only time Brad pops in is to sell something!!  At what point will we not here about the schedule for scjb?  A lot of us plan for the opener.  Will we know about it?  Or will this site be abandoned cuz we're not Facebook whores?  The List is done!  River outlaws is done!  Iv been pushing something from the v-drive side forever cuz this site is still also socalvdrives,  and nothing!!  Wtf is happening on our end??  Kills me!!  I bought a boat 7 years ago because i ran into scjb at big river!  Immediately came home and started searching for a boat so I could play with everyone!!  Iv learned a lot, met some people..  And feel like this is end of the original part of scjb, and its dying!!  Again I guess when your pants get to big u have to wear them!!

My 31St  bday I'm at big river,  see all the boats!  Small group of boats but we got to see some shit!  Rivertard was there,  he was making a pass, we recorded it,,  he had a backfire we thought his boat granaded, cuz it shot an impressive fireball thru his rooster tail!  When people asked if we had it recorded this guy with a blue and white blown pickle fork said hey,  post that to socaljetboats, we said what's that?  It's a social socal boat site,  make sure you send it!!  We were all sold!!!!  I'm just the only guy in my group that bought a v-drive after that!!  Everyone else bought jets!!!

Yah this site has gone way down hill.since the fb group started. This is the  only social media I'm on.
 My wife has fb and is on the group somewhat mainly to look at boat porn and see what hi perf  parts are for sale.
I used to able to thumb thru the posts on hereand gather info on things that relate to me or issues I've had.but lately it's crickets in here.
Seems.fb is just a place for people to gloat,talk shit,criticise,tell you what you should do with not knowing a thing about your setup.

So fuck it that's where scjb wants to go I get it.thats where brad can make his money
Prolly will never go to an event bc I don't want pics of my boat for the masses to see.
Rant over

You don't want your boat to be seen? Why? You are boat porn too!

Ya, the crickets creep in more and more. Especially the past year or so. Its unfortunate but I guess just change in times. And if we don't change too then we get left behind.

If brad takes a pic of my boat @ one of his events then he owns the rights to that photo.
Not down with that.
I got way too much money,  late night hours hustling to get to the lake in the morning for some one to OWN the rights to a photo.
In the event scjb had a pic of my boat and put it on one of their t shirts you think I would see a dime of it. Think not.
I like this site there is plenty of info and talent on here to get answers on just about anything and I'll keep checking out everyone's post so I can keep learning my self

You both are right and have every right to be upset. I get it. I'm not happy about it either.

I fought against creating the fb group for a long time. Told myself I would never do it because I knew it would totally take away from the site. But then it got to the point if I didn't do it, someone else would, and people were doing it. I needed to keep with the times or else SCJB would become irrelevant.

When I did decide to make the group I promised myself and the members of the website I would more use FB to pull traffic here rather than just make the fb group the main focus point. Well, that didn't happen. I bet 80% of the people in the fb group don't even know about this forum.

The top 10 list died for several reasons. Has nothing to do with the group. I always made sure the list stayed on this site and away from the fb group because I know fb attracts drama. But the reason why it died off this year is because first there was a couple of shitheads that came in and stirred the pot so bad early in the year that it made a few of the guys on the list say 'fuck it, I don't wanna be a part of this drama'. Also, second, a few of the guys took up racing on the track instead, which I totally understand and support. I do have a plan to kickstart the list. It will be a fresh start. A new list. I'm working on the details.

As far as the 2018 event schedule, they will be posted here just like I did with the 2017 events. The schedule will be posted sometime after the first of the year.

I know the site has gotten slow and I do appreciate the few of you that still post here and keep it alive. I'm not ready to give up on this forum. That being said I will start being better about making this place my primary focus. I already exhausted of baby sitting the group. Yes there are shitheads who just talk shit there but I do my best to filter all of the bad people out.

I have some cool things in mind for 2018. I hope you all will enjoy it.

-Brad

If you don't want me to take/post photos of your boat, just let me know bud. I can totally respect that. Most people are excited to show off their hard work and get recognition for it. Every boat I have ever put on a shirt I got permission to do prior to going to print. Every one of them were blown away and excited about it.

This goes for anyone. If you don't want pics of your boat taken/posted, just let me know. I will respect your wishes and will not take offense to it.

Good post Aqua. As I was about to reply I saw Brad's post and was going to point out the same thing he's stating. From a business standpoint you have to Facebook for this type of thing.

I've been in business for myself for 21 years. I've been advised to go Facebook simply to remind people everyday here I am, this is what I do so when it comes time for your business to make a change with their phone system remember me.

Problem for me is I'm a private person, I don't want to post my life up everyday showing everything I do over and over again.

I take a look here most mornings to see what's not going on, it is off season for most.

Not really making a point with any of this, just showing there are a few more Facebook hold outs than you think  8)

I was actually beside myself when a pic of my yellow turd was posted in the I.g countdown for the opener last year!  That was cool..  A vdrive amongst jets,  that was cool!!  But this is where it all started!!  And clearly we all feel like we're being left behind for being loyal to the original site!!

Thanks Brad and Britt for all that you doSCJB events allow me to escape the inner city and hang out with some really cool and friendly people. I donít have FB because I got into a lot of trouble growing up gangs,cars and dr&@s. You all get the picture . When I read these posts, it  gets me to look forward to the next upcoming event  and  keeps that other inner city guy locked away in that secure trunk, you have to be Jock Crusto to dive deep and bring that guy back up but heís there and this site helps me keep him there . When I go to events and Brads taking pics, my Float is right there along with the big boys. To me itís  just a way of him appreciating your boat and saying thank you for coming out . When the site post up pics from an event all boats get there pic posted, mine has been posted at lest 3 times and itís nothing special just a cruiser. Thanks Brad ď

Im with ya aquaholic...i will never have or will be a part of Facebook. This is my only type of social media. Its the first thing i do before work at 4:30 a.m.  then at lunch....and then when i get home. I love this site and everyone on it. Dont have anything like the boats yall got here in missouri so its my way of seeing all the badass stuff and getting in touch with all the guys that know thier shit. Again, love the site brad. Thanks. Just hopefully the traffic picks up a little thats all. And i would love to see more event pictures and things of that nature on here

Not much of a poster, more of a reader. But I also don't have a FB and don't plan on having one. I read up on what's going on here daily and enjoy it. Unfortunately due to life I'm boatless at the moment, but along with some close friends, this site keeps me feeling connected to the world iv loved my entire life. This site has also connected me with people I now call best friends and I won't be going anywhere either. Keep up the shit talk guys, it gets me through my long nights at work lol

I swore I would never do Facebook. I do not have a personal account there so I created a "dummy" profile just for "boat stuff" but I swear it's just for the articles no boat porn for me lol 😀

I will say that I have talked to several people there that were seeking advice and I have told every one if them to get this forum app and ask questions here ... Facebook is DEFINITELY NOT the place to get advice

Agreed with that! To many people out there who don't know what they're talking about trying to give advice.

To the best of my knowledge I have not given any bad boat advise. As far as relationship advise, all bets are off!

Fuck Facebook and all that social media horse shit, I stay on the app like I have from the jump. I pop in and out threw out the week just looking but I agree 110% this site has gone down hill, it sucks but ultimately we can't make people get on and say f FB.

I prefer the OG site. Traffic has been really slow lately tho. The FB site gives better access to post and view pics/videos and I appreciate that. But that's about it. The boat scene has become a little dooshy lately. Some people are just not helpful or nice. There is no reason to be that way. Some people just need solid information cause they don't know what they are doing and genuinely ask for help. On FB, there is a tidal wave of bad info cause newbies want to be that guy. Would love to see the newbies get directed to the original site. See what is in the archives. Ask and get the information they need. There is something to be said when a senior member with a long standing profile history of great answers says something as opposed to a newer member. None of that exists on FB.

I think you are all looking at the FB page in the wrong way. Over the summer I noticed that quite a few folks got emergency help in a quick manner. I also notice alot of people connected on the lakes and river that might not have ever met! I do agree that there are a few posers on FB but we know who they are. I agree that technical questions are better answered here on the original site. I have recommended people to come here when this has been the best solution. I use both, I like several threads here but I think FB has a place also. We as a collective need to educate people to know the differance. Just my 4 dollar bills worth.

I totally rebuilt my boat myself and would not have been able to do it without this site. I think most of the people with the real knowledge are still here. I do follow the Facebook group but I agree that it is full of a bunch of turds.

What happened?

Pretty simple.
1. It's winter, summer pretty much sucked sweaty ass.

2. Facebook likely slowed things a little because of convenience, but I don't feel it's the root cause.

3. We have a complete adult diaper dumpster fire in the white house. That divided more folks than you think (wont get into that discussion here).

4. I personally have been taking a vacation from forums, cancelled all but this one and Pirate 4X4 and spend very little of my time on either...


I was stupid busy, leaving the house at 5:30am and getting home at 9pm.... dark to dark as my wife says. Growing a new area for my new shop as a foreman. Didn't really have any time off all summer.
 
As a result, I was in a crazy accident and fell off a roof November 10th and shattered my right arm at the wrist, elbow and shoulder.

I can't do shit right now. Bored as hell and hurting like you wont believe. I will likely not get 100% use of my right side, not anytime soon anyway. I am otherwise OK, thankfully, could have been really bad, life ending even......

Go fast boats are the furthest thing from my mind right now. I'm thinking of selling off everything and invest in a cruiser to spend the night on if I can't get my houseboat (was in process the week of the accident).


I guess what I'm trying to say is, life's short and can change in a heartbeat.


I'll pop in from time to time, but typing left handed is slow as hell....   :thumbdown:

Everybody stay cool and have a great Christmas.

Time to man up and yank it John!  :banghead:
