Putting my boat search on hold


Active Member
Well I have decided to put my personal boat ownership on hold. I will still boat and help on my Parent's pontoon (which is finally done) but will not look for a boat for me for a while. The reason for this decision is that I was given an opportunity to return to my first love Dirt track Racing. I have been given the opportunity to be the crew chef for a long time friend on his IMCA stock car. I am excited because I get to wrench on a race car again and not have to spend any of my own money
. I will still be around and will still be on the lakes from time to time just extremely excited about this new opportunity. I may even get to hot lap the car from time to time and fill in if he is not felling well.

Well, if that's what you want... good for you! Enjoy.

I was a road racer for 15 years and a and Firehawk Crew Chief prior to that. I spent all those summers at Mosport Park, Shannonville MSP, Watkins Glen, Mt. Tremblant and Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in Montreal amongst other smaller tracks. I also came within a stones throw from a drive at Sebring 12 hour and Daytona 24 hour races. At the time I felt it was the most fun I could have with my clothes on. (actually in a 3 layer nomex suit). In retrospect I still had fun but, I missed all those summers that I could have been at the lake/cottage country in my prime. YOLO!
