    Gabby,

    Welcome back. Throat cancer--that's tough and nasty from surgery to therapy to recovery.

    Keep up your spirits. You can do this.

    All the best.

Hopefully be making a maiden voyage soon.. I'm ready to do some crappie fishing soon.
    Good for you, I did a little fishing yesterday, no better therapy than that.

    Yay, Gabby!!! I see that as another point for our side in the battles against Cancer. All cancer is nasty stuff and it's good to know that there are others, Comrades in Arms, that have survived one type or another. Any type needs to be overcome! A day at the range is a great day, but a day on the water trumps them all!

    Back when I had a boat, having basically grown up on Passamaquoddy Bay and the Lakes of Washington County, Maine, I can remember days when I would get out of work around 9am and beat feet to one of the lakes, launch my Crestliner, get out a ways and just cut the motor, spread out along the back seat and close my eyes. Not a care in the world, and nothing on the lake was going to hurt that boat! I sure do miss that boat. I sold it in 1991 to a grandfather from Daytona, Fl - he wanted a boat his grandkids could use that he felt was safe. It was a 15ft Crestliner Voyager, soft top from 1957.

    Happy Fishing!!
