    Russell Purdock...anyone remember?

    That case was fucked up from the get-go. Everyone on "Beats Workin' II" was taken to one hospital, Perdick to another. His blood sample was misdated. I still give a great deal of credit to Dan Noyes for keeping us informed as to what was happening at trial and Elizabeth Larson from Lake County News before and after that. That puke is a Councilman for crissakes.

  8. I knew I was due for surgery when one particular night I looked up at a crescent moon and saw three of 'em. From the time I was wheeled in to getting wheeled out of the procedure was sixteen minutes. 20/20 was the result.
  9. Compared to the hull itself, prop drag would be negligible.

    Removing Vinyl Lettering at Mooring

    Hair dryer and plastic scraper I've seen cringe-worthy gelcoat damage using heat guns. YMMV.
