My Yak's buried in a white coffin out back. Looks like it won't be seeing anytime in 2k3 for a while. Anyone figure out how to rig up an IceBreaking bow to a yak? Or am I just better off paddling on the snow on top?

Heading to the Keys in a month, can't get fishing out of my head.

I know a couple of hills that would give an entertaining ride.

Dfix, correct me if I'm wrong...but I think its the USCGA motto meaning "Always Ready".

And here I was thinking Dave was telling you to seize the apparatus. :smokin:

Funny, when I first took on the challenge of 'shallow water' in the late Sixties, little did I know just how close to terra firma or imminent danger I really was. All I/we had to know was the bottom was somewhere around walking distance, between a mile and five or six - straight down, and "Semper Paratus" was augmented by a daily reminder - "you have to go out; you don't have to come back."

Please excuse my ignorance in terms of "Green Machine", being older and somewhat less culturally diverse than others; perhaps I'm unable to exercise 'critical thinking' in determining your meaning. As an aside, I fly more than one branches' ensign on my flagpole; I hold more than one Honorable Discharge.

Perhaps I know just a little more than that which is alluded to here.

Nick - I forgive your gaffe' :tsk_tsk:

Potentate: was that a gentle enough response???

Semper Paratus

No slight intended Fix-it. Guess you all were recruited to the shallow water branch because of your height. Six feet plus being the only criteria for the skinny water navy. F.T.G.... Randall

Ouch.. Guess that was a broadside from the forum warriors. Guess I shouldn't take umbridge over the "squid' remark. Ever been downwind of a "Penguin"...... Randall....
