I'd be dead after Ginger, too. The wedding ceremony would turn out to be a funeral.

Mary Ann was the smart one, she took a smaller up front payment and negotiated long term royalties (an unusual move back then) and made a killing off that show.

Beautiful boat. Looking at those pics, I can almost hear the gulls and smell the marine environment

Oh yeah on the way we saw this beauty and although I didn't get a picture, a young bear and her two cubs. We were very close and they were beautiful. First we saw the mother bear and then took a long look at us, called her cubs and they came out of the bush and followed her across the road.

I was riding home through the country yesterday in an area thick with deer, which means I ride slow and watching, and about 30 yards off the road two fawns broke cover running perpendicular, but opposite direction than I was travelling followed by momma doe in the rear guard position. I knew something spooked them and sure enough as I approached the thicket they came from, there was one of the biggest coyotes I'd seen, I'd guess 60 lbs. and possibly a coy-dog. There was no traffic so I was putting along and cut a U-turn and stopped. He stood there dividing his attention between the direction of his prey and keeping an eye on me. He stood there about another 20 seconds before slinking back into the under brush. Given the time of day I'd say the deer were probably bedded down and Wiley Coyote got busted in his ambush attempt.

If you are ever in Nova Scotia let me know. I have had many FZ1OA visitors over the years.

I am working in Toronto now so I am not home as much as I would like though.
We all have to work.

But make sure you come in legally or you will face the border patrol:

Funny you say that. We are heading up there July 30 - Aug 2. Staying in Bangor Friday night, then onto Moncton for Sat night, possibly Sun night too!

I am about one hour from Moncton. There is not much in Moncton but the National Park, Fundy National Park is cool. The enormous tides have carved really cool formations. Along the Bay of Fundy you can see fishing boats tied at a pier but in 6 hours those same boats are up to 50 ft below the pier sitting on the bottom. The tides are amazing but it is a 6 hour show, not a photo.

If I am home which is likely I'll take you out in Old Yeller.
Google Map Pugwash, NS. It is a beautiful area as long as you don't need the conveniences of a city. or a town for that matter.

Nice boat and great engine. I assume it's new so you will not need this for a long time, but when it comes time to buy diagnostic software let me know. I can walk you through the most cost effective way. I've owned 3 Etecs myself.

Yes please let me know. The boat is far from new but the motor is only one year old.
I was hesitant about Evinrude as I prefer Japanese motors but the reviews on the Evinrude are really good and I got a great deal because I needed a 20" shaft and there is very little market for them in this neck of the woods. I purchased a 2012 unsold motor in 2015. It was cheaper than a 115 from the Japanese motors or even a 115 Evinrude. Motors are hideously expensive.

It has been flawless but it should be.

There have been a couple small ones already. Everyone is welcome but I don't organize anything. Just show up and have fun. There are some incredible riding roads too and since it is a largely empty province there is no traffic anywhere.
