So how did they know you just got your EIP in the bank? Glad to hear it's fixed and near the water. Mine is still in 'cold' storage until end of March, at earliest. I still have a foot of snow in the front yard!

Would it not be nice to be able to purchase 'pre-paid' gas futures at fixed (pre $100 barrel) prices? I will continue to boat as usual but be more 'econo' minded with the throttle this year. I anticipate fewer tubing sessions, more park and swim.

At least you have some coin leftover to fillup once and take momma out for a nice dinner.

I figured they were watching the news and just guestimated my paycheck by the amount of gas I buy... :shock: ...

and..as for anything left over!!..nope...now I have to replace the thermostat...went out yesterday after I got her from the shop...she really jumped on plane...then had an incident where the temp fluxuated from 165-190..at medium rpm....so the alarm didn't go off but once I increased speed the temps settled down...we spent most of the afternoon putting our gear back on the boat...I have to still hook up the new fishfinder to a switch and also mount the new fishfinder ...plus drill a hole in my dash where the wires come out.......well...still got some work to do but she's basically ready to go....oh...and some serious cleaning......
