Default New Guy Saying Hello

I've been a member over at CSR and some other forums for a long time and decided to expand my horizons.

I'm from Minnesota and I have a 2008 Sea Ray 280 Sundancer as shown below. I keep her slipped on Lake Minnetonka -- hence the name Tonka Boater.

Looking forward to learning and contributing.

Just sayin' "Hey"

-- Tonka Boater

The hard part about joining a new forum is starting over with the post count....give me time, I'll be in the triple digits now that boating season is done.

I wish the red boat was mine. I don't recall the make/model/year of that boat but I do recall that it was pristine. I think that I took some pics of it that day and will post them.

My rod holders are at the back of my boat. You can't see them from the angle that I took this photo.

Thanks again everyone...happy to be here.

Here are some better pictures of the red boat for anyone interested. It appears to be a Higgins .

There's something unfair about boating on a lake. You miss all the fun of flushing and the wonders of salt corrosion!

Welcome!

Notice the port-side steering. Don't see that everyday.
