  • Appella's Welcome to the 2018 Rendezvous!

    -- Tim Taylor

    1979 Glasply 21-foot I/O Overnighter w/ 5.0L Volvo-Penta duoprop (Cardinal)
    1982 Glasply 16-foot runabout w/ 50hp Mercury OB (JV Junior)
    1978 Glasply 19-1/2 foot runabout, project boat (Beer Goggles)


    Relieving people of the burden of freedom in order to make them feel safe is a recurring theme in the history of authoritarianism.

    Ouch. That guy barely missed the boat crane piling which would have been even uglier.

      This is obviously why Binford nicknamed me "crash"

        It was your self-nominated handle, for the reality show on Comcasts’s new Glasply-TV channel. Probably a subliminal thing from your experience at the sling!

                Yes, we received two "we're too busy to do your boat" bids, coming in @ 11K for a transom door and railing. So we will just have the chips repaired for now, remove the stair railings, have the whole boat buffed out and bottom painted. We should be able to get the transom door done for 5k in the fall. Still going after the offending persons insurance company for loss of use, fuel, hauling permits, hotel, etc. Our insurance company Totaled the boat for 17K, we bought it back for 2K, but they will not cover all the stuff mentioned earlier. Looking at a repower with the insurance funds.
