Jet Boat Junkie! I already have a shirt for it! I wear it almost every time I go out on the boat.

I went out and looked at the Navy ranks and wondered if we should run with those as follows:

I'm also not fond of the "Inmate" title! Perhaps I should change that to Junkie or Ninja..... @Moderating --Thoughts?

Now I'm feeling competitive. Can I buy points? Money can go towards site maintenance and / or swag. I'm an addict not a lover.

What is to prevent someone from gaming the system by say posting one word posts like: it, was, hot, today : to boost their post count?

Just noodling guys, as I find myself at a rest stop near the amusement park we plan to go to later today. Left last night so we would not have to drive all 5 hours this morning. Not regretting it but of course we are having an unexpected heat wave back home and the high at the amusement park location will be 102 today. I can hear my boat saying, "You don't love me anymore!"
@Ronnie: Hope y'all enjoy the amusement park ! You're killin' us in advance before you even get there !@
LOL - I had not even thought about posting
HELP ! HELP ! HELP ! @ three or so times ......... "jes too funny ! Many Thanks and Best Wishes - Mikey L !

LOL, well, that damn staff name takes the place any of the fun names! But I admit I am addicted to these boats and to you guys! It is the association with the membership that makes it fun to be here! And any of us that are staff are members first!
