Some of you may know that I regretably sold my boat midsummer last year (but always shopping)...so I haven't been as active around the forum as I once used to be. I have been lurking though, and it appears that the strong Chain O' Lakes and Northern Illinois presence here has disappeared...

At one time we had:
-Rvitek
-Dock Holiday
-WaterWing
-CJS
-LilGuy
-Mike288BR
-PureBreed
-TCoz
-Mariah
-Bratts
-Wet Doggg (for nostalgia sake)
-Download Complete (mtrainTurbo)


Plus other fine Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin boaters:
-Jim696
-Roncat
-Bones
-PlayDeep
-4Winns (Crownline)
-dtDave
-Bankonit
-tbkohl

Am I forgetting anybody? Just thought I'd check in and see what everyone is upto. Everyone still here??? Any new players???

(My apologies in advance for any of you whom I left out or forgot.)

Ayup.

Used to be known as mtrainTurbo, and I mostly lurk here now off and on. The Chain is my home base.

I can tell you that rvitek is out of boating, at least last I heard, due to wanting to start a family. WetDoggg as we know is in Michigan now.

I work part time at West Marine, and a few months ago Dock Holiday came in and ordered some stuff from me, so he is still around.

Still here as well. Just sold our cruiser and will finalize the paperwork on a new boat...well new to us. 2000 Four Winns 230 Horizon. So our boating is changing quite a bit...day trips now with our son who is now 13 months old.

I used to talk to rvitek all the time...in fact we were very good friends. But the last time we heard from them was right after our son was born...since then...notta.

Anyone going to the loop cruise? We plan to, it will be our 5th year.

I know that DC and Tim do are down there more often. I am ready to go to DC! BTW thanks for your help with the SVT, I am just waiting on selling the beast before seperating the TV and DD.

Still here!

I might be driving a much smaller boat this year. Working on a trade for a 22' with a 6.2 BIII (should move along quite nicely).

Hey Bankonit...were you at the CLC this year?

I was there on Sunday. Gorgeous weather, too.

Yeah, my face hurts from wind/sun burn. Great weather!! I think I saw you sucking up fumes from White Nuckles in the Chicago lock, but wasn't sure. We were last to launch and took our time through the Cal Sag. We droppped a passenger off in Monroe and headed straight for the Chicago locks.
