I ran the Grand in my lose control
It might have been the perfect boat
I do love the mullet analogy though

Retro surfers..

If by some incredible stroke of luck (or the 10 year cycle) Big Sir happens we better all bring a retro boat like the Cruise Control to surf. Reminisce on that! I had a Savage Scorpion and a Kendo back then.
Glaser and Sloane had Sleeks. Thor - Scorpion, Frank- Pirouette? Paris-Invader?
What did you all paddle the last time Big Sir was up?

I think I paddled a Pyrannha Razor on it in '97, took a direct hit from a Dagger Blast and broke 2 ribs. Maybe the modern boats with blunt ends will cut down a bit on the carnage there, probably not. If it ever goes off again there will be at least an hour wait in the eddy...

I know a guy who's got like four Sleeks. He runs pretty much everything in it except for overnighters. When he breaks one, he looks for another. One can usually find them cheap at the NOC for GAF weekend. The look of that scooped stern always made me leary.

Alas, it was'nt meant to be. I posted the original message when I found out about a Sleek for sale. So I got some advice/thoughts from the peanut gallery, i.e. you guys. And then I went to see it. It was the ugliest color. Somebody at NewWave must have thought (or didn't) that it would be cool to mix red and black plastic, to make some kind of 666 hell cruiser or something. Well, it looked like death vomit. I have yet to see a plastic mix that actually looks cool. Dagger and Pyranha were the worst. Anyways, the ebola paintjob alone cut my offer in half. He wouldn't sell it for fifty though. Good for him. And me too. I'm better off with fifty bucks in my pocket than a dinasour in my closet. And so the door of opportunity closes, for better or for worse.
