What a difference 1 letter makes -- yourS look older, not you look older!

Speaking of older, has anyone read the Boat US articles about how gasoline-ethanol blends have been disolving older boats? Anyone know how these old OMCs hold up to it? I've been careful not to put it in, but eventually I suspect we won't be able to find anything but.

  Wow, Ryan -- 3 girls, just like me! Your look a bit older though, as mine are 8 mo, 4, and 6.

  If you like old boats, try and make your way to the San Diego Maritime Museum ( I travel there for off-road 4x4 testing (a few hours east into the desert, actually) about every other year and always spend at least a few hours there. They've got quite a nice collection, including the H.M.S. Surprise from the movie Master and Commander. The first time I was there, Stars & Stripes (America's Cup) sailed right up to me, turned, traversed the side of the Star of India, the sailed back off -- great photo op!

    This replica was docked at our port here in Wilmington, NC

    In this picture of my kids and I you can also see the U.S.S. North Carolina which is retired here.
