Turtler said he'd LOVE to come live with you! If Miss Debbie will let me get away by myself, I may take Turtler on a little excursion this week.  Move everything to get him outa the carport, move it all back later. 1 1/2 hour to get to the lake, another 1 1/2 hour to get home. Hot Sun. I dunno....

I was hoping to replace the Mocassin 2 with something with a bit more room but still portable. I have an engine for it. But flipping Turtler over and throwing it on my shoulder or my cabin top would be a stretch.  I guess I could tow it behind the boat on the local trips. But towing two trailers behind the truck on the long ones would be an "exciting" event.:lol:

Turn your hearing aid up, Oyster. Hey. Now yer gonna hafta build yer own. And I've got some cash to build a couple more projects. Maybe a Catspaw sailing dink that I've had plans for for years, to carry along camping. Or a Moccasin 14. Or a Happy Hour mini kayak to pull behind the Codger to sneak up the creeks I discover. Or a Mouse Boat, or......   The dang money is burning the proverbial hole in my pocket, y'all. And I'm not even done with the Old Codger yet.
