Thanks to a very good friend who picked my Water Master up while on his family vacation. The deal was almost too good to belive but the boat was in a place I could not reach and the seller would not ship. I owe you big, you know it, I know it and we'll settle that right.

I'm now happy to have my own water master kodiak sitting right behind me on the floor of my media room. I'd show off some boat porn if my camera was not dead and my charger was not lost. Until the new one arrives you'll have to use your imagination.

I hope to get it wet this weekend, even if for just a couple of hours.

Mumbles,
You are a gear tart. I like the way you roll. I consider myself pretty good at horse trading and sniffing out good deals, but I'm an amateur compared to you. Enjoy the WM.

Thanks Big Tuna, I'm a gear tart for sure. I'm hoping my new to me WM will be a mini version of your new to you big boy raft. How is that thing working out for you all?

Looks wonderful in the garage:) I've only gotten it out once, and it was great. Planning to hit the Yak tomorrow in it. Heading to the Missouri next weekend for 5 days, and if both my bros go, we'll be taking the raft. I'll get more use in August and then steelhead season. Various and sundry circumstances have resulted in me getting out very little this spring. Enjoy your WM.

Congrats Mumbles. You may find you like it enough to keep it, unlike some of your other gear acquisitions. But if not, that's OK, someone will get a great deal.

Funny guy. I like gear. Some I buy, some I trade, some I keep. I don't like the stock market because I can't take it on the beach, river or lake and try it out for a while. Sometimes I get great deals, sometimes I give them. I guess so long as I'm happy then I'm happy.

Well-stated. As the old punch line goes: "Who you gonna please with that?" . . . Response: "Me." When folks ask me why I have this, that, or the other thing, I reply that . . . "it's mine, I have it if I need/want to use it, and quite frankly, what I have or do comes under the heading of my business." Enjoy your WM . . . maybe I'll buy one of these, too . . . then I'll have an inflatable for every vehicle & occasion . . . will save loading & unloading . . .

Actually been browsing some videos on WM's and wondering if it will make my float tube obsolete. The misses would love to have even more free space in the garage. I'll hold off on that though. Visiting friends might need something to float in too.

Perhaps not. Float tubes will always have their place in my flotilla, especially when fishing water that's not easily accessible for a WM or hiking in to remote lakes.

Exceptional point Mr. Lufkin, as always. I'll hold off. Maybe my fatness will find fitness to hike into some of the alpine areas I used to visit when I was much more fit and less fat.
