Looks like the person making the signs put the decimal point one space to the right of where it should be.

    Ding ding ding ding!  Excuse me...........would somebody please hand Blue Heron the stuffed animal of his choice.  It seems he's hit the target square on the nose.  You see, I've oftentimes considered the fish I got from my boat ride in the same light.  I know, I know, I've told this story before, but (for those who have already heard it) try to suffer through it again:   You see, years ago, people would occasionally approach me and say how fortunate I was to own a boat, and thereby, could get my fish for free.  I can't exactly recall the number, but my response was usually something like this:  "Yes.......why should I pay $3.99 a lb. for fish at the market when I can own a boat a pay $50.00 a lb.?"  :jester:

   In order to truly appreciate this, I guess you have to be from New England; where the season (for small boats at least) is considerably shorter than the Northwest.

Dear Arima:  Stretch the Hunter platform by 5. Next, stretch the Explorer by 9 and steal 2 or 3 from the cabin.  Please hurry, I'm getting old.

I'll third that guys. My time on the water with my friends and family is priceless. I track my boat gas cost every year as a reflection of my on water time.

I'm glad I don't need to justify my boating cost by the fish I bring home and, as long there is a comfy seat to Gibson's with the wife a few times, everyone is happy.
