Gotboostedvr6,



Good job finding that from my 2013 post, used my IPhone (you will understand why later). I grabbed the same pic when posting on this thread. After reading the OPs thread title, I knew I wanted to reply. The day I took this was one of the most pissed off days I’ve had on the boat except for the 30 seconds while snapping the pic (eye candy is/was always appreciated). So I will try (miserably I’m sure) to tell a story like Paul Harvey used to, for those that still remember Paul Harvey. Let’s take a 5 min break and listen……..

We were invited to a family reunion (wife’s family- large, LARGE extended family) 2012 July 4th week in Myrtle Beach. Their family gets together almost every year but we rarely go. Had been married over 20yrs at this point and had only gone to one previously, So we gave in and committed to go (I’m not a big fan of crowds). Plans were made and houses were being rented, we have a 4BR house in Myrtle Beach that was asked to be used for housing everyone as well, but I didn’t want to spend a week with a bunch of strangers. So wife, son and I decided to take the boat down and stay at the Crazy Sister Marina in Murrell’s Inlet.

Easy peasy, right! We could make her family happy we would attend and I didn’t have to shack up with a bunch of strangers for a week. We left a couple days before most were headed down and chilled at the marina. We even towed the Seadoo jet boat to use for the week in the Murrells Inlet for tubing and knee boarding if we wanted to entertain relatives during the week. Murrells Inlet/ Crazy Sister Marina is nice place as they have a boardwalk with many restaurants that can easily be walked to. Started to think this might be an ok week after all.

The second day wife and I decided to grab some lunch. Son wanted to stay and play video games in his cabin (did that a lot at 16 yrs old) just text him when we head backed, maybe we could bring him something back. Gone about an hour or a bit more and we are headed back down the boardwalk.

(Everything here after takes place in 10 min or less, it was flurry of activity)

As we approached the boat I could see someone up on the flybridge (didn’t know who, son maybe? didn’t look quite like him though). As we boarded the boat I headed up to flybridge and wife went into the salon to use the head. I recognized the person on the flybridge as one of my wife’s nephew (Nephew-in-law #1), and not one I cared for (the SOB had stolen 4 Penn International Saltwater Reels and pawned them at Dick’s Pawn in Myrtle Beach 5 or 6 yrs previous (a whole nuther story here)). He was fiddling with the IPad we used for navigation on the flybridge (figured he was planning on stealing that next). I’m like “what’s going on?” he said he was trying to take a pic. I looked on the bow and see the two in the pic. He hands me the IPad and says “take a pic” (I did, I mean look at them). I snapped the pic and asked who are they? He says the brunette is his new wife (Niece-in-law #1, found out later not true). The other (Sunglasses, Neice-in-law #2) was married to older brother (Nephew-in-law #2), wife’s other nephew (I had met her once but people look different in clothes than what she had on and I didn’t recognize her).

About this time I hear my wife yelling to come down inside. I head into salon and it’s full of people. I guess they had been down below as we didn’t see them when we boarded boat. Wife was not happy. Guest head was stopped up and overflowing! Fix it now. NIL #2 is saying “hey thanks for inviting us over” while I’m scrambling to figure out where all this Sh!t water is coming from. I told him I didn’t invite you over. He said his brother NIL#1 told the group we had offered an invitation (typical of NIL#1). Hadn’t been more than 30 secs when hear wife yelling for me to come up top (she’s up in salon) why is it so hot in salon? I don’t know! I’m playing in SH!T water. The GUESTS, meanwhile, are oblivious to everything going on and NIL#2 is following me as I run back up to salon talking like its just another day.

I thought maybe the pilot house doors were being opened too much causing the heat in the salon, then I realize someone had set a beach bag directly in front of the return grille for the rear AC unit. As a result the fan motor had burned out and we were down an AC unit. I hear my son yelling from below, the SH!T water has started going everywhere again. Looked at wife and she gave me “the LOOK” and I lost it. Get the F off the boat now!

Of the 8 people that departed, I only knew (barely) the 2 NILs and the one neice-in-law. I’m sure they thought I was an A$$. Found out later the rest of the group were friends (not even extended family) that came along for the week to get a free vacation.

Well the calls started about 30-45 min later when wife’s family learned we had thrown everyone off the boat. Accused of being too uppity now, didn’t want to hang out with the riff raff, etc. I told her to use me as the excuse, and kiss my butt. That evening while hanging out on the flybridge the pic taken earlier was showing as the screen saver on the Flybridge IPad. It also propagated to the lower helm due to the “Apple Cloud” I was instructed to remove it immediately (Which I did).

Next day, wife’s sister called to ask if older NIL#2 and niece (Sunglasses) can stay in guest cabin due to too many people in the house, aka… there is no room at the inn. SURE, what are ya gonna do, they’re family right? So NIL#2 and wife are staying in guest cabin next to master, but using forward head (in son’s cabin) because “sh!tter is full” and broke. 2nd day aboard, hear my wife screaming, I head down below and Sunglasses is walking from forward head shower to rear guest cabin wearing nothing but her smile (I’m sure about this as I was bug eyed while stumbling down the stairs- as was my son who followed her out of his cabin. Sunglasses didn’t seem to mind). Son had huge smile on his face- me too.

HOWEVER, NOT my wife. OH HE!! No, this is not gonna happen around her 16 yr old son wife said. I got the LOOK again and that was it. I helped them to leave.

To this day, still don’t know the name of NIL#1’s wife/girlfriend (Saw her for 10 min total). (found out a couple years later they were just hooking up). NIL#2 and his wife divorced and I’ve never seen her since the ‘Passageway Incident” as my son and I call it. Never met the rest of the group that helped themselves to come aboard. Wife and I discussed later how the NILs knew which boat was ours, and assumed they had looked on Facebook and found name and pics.

Needless to say the rest of the week was not spent with family. Didn’t even go to the reunion cookout.

Sometime in 2013 while changing IPhones I saw “the pic”. Don’t know why it showed up on my phone but decided to post it on the “girl on your boat thread” using the new IPhone (certainly wasn’t going to try and type all this, and didn’t even know then one of the girls was technically not my niece), then DELETED the pic on my phone. Seeing this new thread and remembering that day/s events, I found my earlier 2013 post (viewed the pic for a few min……) and posted here. Never took it off THT (forgot about it, that’s my story and I’m sticking with it).

Now you see how the same pic can be posted on two threads, be relevant for both and be legit. Now you know the “Rest of the Story”…………………………………………………………….

Good Day!

P.S. and yes the pic was taken on my 53' Hatteras Yachtfish

Hopefully, the previous post provided a little humor today (this is all true). Some of you fellows seem to get worked up over next to nothing. Sometimes its just too hard to type all this on a freaking IPhone. I work on the phone and computer about 10-12 hrs a day and sometimes just don't want to type these stories out, but if one of you have some spare time, contact me. I would be glad to relay some stories (I got a bunch! between both families mine and wife's) and we could make a killing. I have been told we could make a reality TV show or good movie at least. We could split the money and both retire.

I don't know if they are as good as Russ's stories or comments ( I love his stuff) but close. I just don't have time to post much. Spend a few min during lunch, eating my sandwich and I'm a happy man.

You all have a good weekend.
I'm out.

You should have let the bashing go 5 more pages before you replied lol.

Guess you have a permanent get out of reunion free card for your trouble anyway.

that has got to be the best/funniest post I have read in a long time.
honestly you sound like a very understanding person to me. that second invite to use the cabin after helping themselves aboard would not have happened in my world.

Mr. Deep Sea Fisher: this might be the funniest thing I read on here. I spit up part of my rum and coke. I hope you and your son have toasted a beer or two reliving that story.

thanks for sharing.
