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:
