Well I'm back. Hope everbody faired better than me. My house in San Leon took Ike right through the front door. First the wind, then 10 to 12 ft. of water, then the fire burned it to the ground. Don't even have have a rod, reel, or takle bag or a pot to p--- in left. The boat made it, tied it off to 4 trees,it's off the trailer but it's still there, not sure about the motor though. But to top it off some lady ran a red light and totaled the front end of my truck last Friday. It was just a bad week. Oh well I'm still alive and the familys Ok. Amen.
