Ah, well you know how it is on the internet. There was certainly some jest in my post as well. There's something funny about a boater getting all dressed up, acting earnest and running for political office, and it's easy to give someone a hard time. But in all seriousness, I think it's great what you're doing. The boating lifestyle is, in many ways, inherently narcissistic and your point is well taken regarding giving back to your community. If I lived in your district, you'd probably have my vote. Good luck!
