Yes, I am certain that is was wrapped pretty close to what I thought. Just because of the wear pattern on the frame. The only thing is I think it was a bit diagonally instead of straight on like I had guessed. The damage to the d-rings on the cargo wrack and the pole literally rubbed through the steel pipe. I think a welder I know can fix the frame and straighten it. I think you are right about letting the air out, makes me wish we did that on Sunday night, but that did seem too drastic that night. 6 days on a shit pole.
Yes, actually I do know John. Thanks. He's who I got that boat from and was already planing to visit him. He pronounced my other 2 old Campways boats (Frederick of Hollywood, and Little Camper) dead as he put it they had cancer stage 4 (they had rubber rot when I inherited them- just to be clear their death was not my doing!). Hi John, know guess who? lol
So, I'm not going to give up on her until John says so. So John, if you are reading this thread, you are going to see me on Tuesday... Beer or Red Bull and burgers? Don't laugh too hard, you know my luck. So if the Hy-side (I named her The Dahlia) is dead, is Red Fred still hanging out in your shop? My back porch is becoming a dead boat refuge! Ack!
LiquidChaos, you of all people have EARNED the right to give me shit, but I feel ya about the karma. Also I have quite a few pretty good pix of you out there, so if you would like them let me PM your email and I'll get them to ya. Hope you had a great day boating today, you also earned that -even though I was jealous!
Well I hope you got to enjoy some of that beer.
