    Just got through watching The Blue Angels documentary on Prime... highly recommend, 100% worth the time to sit down and enjoy. I wish I'd been able to get to see it on an IMAX screen as intended.

    Yup. I watched the same Blue Angels documentary 2 days ago, highly recommended and very impressive.
    (Glad my tax money are going to folks who perform and work hard, occasionally) :cool:

    Nutty YouTube kid bought a 70’ Broward…:eek:

    I don’t watch any of the YouTube “watch me I did this, that crap”, but this link popped up somewhere in my inbox, maybe because he started with an Albin.
    Almost like a slow moving train reck, I can’t stop watching..

    He's as bad as the Naughty-styles woman, I gave up after 10 minutes of nothing but him repeating how crazy everything was...

    I managed to watch the whole thing, assisted by adult beverages of course: He managed to do a short
    sea trial and did ok maneuvering the old “Luxury Yacht”, but I was waiting for one or both engines to give up the ghost from overheating, clogged filters or whatnot.

    He does have more guts than me, I wouldn’t have touched that old tub with a 10’ long pole.:eek:

    After we moved to North Florida 2 years ago, we came back to Fort Lauderdale for a few days of R&R this week.
    Borrowed a small boat from one of my buddies and went up the New River.
    The Yamaha outboard stopped doing its thing exactly across from LMC: Lauderdale Marine Center.
    Deployed the little anchor and called for a tow.
    Good view, good breeze and a nice day, despite the Towboat US tow picking me up after 1;45 hrs.

    4-5 boats went by each direction, only 1 Captain asked if I needed help..
    Not impressed.
