Anyone alive out there?

Has there been a holocaust in the steamboating world, or is everyone in well-fed hibernation for Christmas?

If the latter, Happy Christmas!

Still alive, and happy for global warming! If all this rain was snow like the good ole days, I'd be buried in about 10ft right now with a broken snowblower!

Happy Christmas!

Shoveling snow, trying to earn a living and kicking the prop occasionally.

I check the site every day.

It is pretty cold in Ohio, when I'm not working the time of year makes me hibernate. :)

I'm going to fix for Nyitra's tensioning on the timing belt between the deck/jack shaft and the propellor shaft, and then take her out for a cold steamy test.
