    Where did they go?

    It seems all too often with hobbies that people pour their heart, soul, and tons of money into them and then the end result just disappears. There's been very nice boats just go MIA whether it's because they've been sold, the owner just lost interest, or has become too busy. What's some of the boats/owners you would like to see around again?

    You're still around and offer helpful advice whenever possible. With production starting back you are one of the few who can offer set up advice for the new boats. I'm thinking of the guys we no longer see around anymore.

    I didn't think a bunch of Strokers existed.

    I just dont post much, But i check the boards maybe 5 times a day also scream and fly. With my stroker im not about getting every single MPH out of it. I can run around 90 so whats fine with me also iv bought a LCB again and that i am playing with!!!! For playing around and really getting to 100 easy and to have something to run on the weekends when not fishing or for jasper i think im going to buy me a 3rd Boat STV Eruo or just a STV same thing i see Brent, Kurt, others doing. Only thing i really dont like about STV or a boat like that is not haveing a troller... really dont want to break down and have to paddle lol so if i do buy one ill have something up their haha!!!!

    Also where i keep my boats is not heated so in winter i just hate working on anything in the cold as i work outside and thats enough for me lol

    It's also a lot like "ground hog day" here in many ways. Guys like Paul and Kurt and a few other guys from back in the early to mid 2000's might have similar feelings ? Paul, FB I'm not sure is a good alternative in certain ways but who knows that just my thoughts maybe I should look more on FB regarding Stroker issues ?
