Even though I have been doing some fishing lately, it has always been on other peopleâ€™s boats. I think it was this past Wednesday that I walked out to get the paper and glanced over at my 16-foot boat, the Marsh Monkey, when it struck me that I had
not taken my boat out in nearly two months. If any of you boat owners out there are anything like me, then you, too, are a bit superstitious about neglecting your boat.
Maybe itâ€™s my overactive imagination, but I have always felt that whether itâ€™s oneâ€™s boat or car, it just seems to run better after getting a good cleaning and some tender loving care.
With that in mind, I hooked the Monkey to my car and gave it a good once over, washing and waxing, lubing the steering cables and making it shine like it was brand new. When I was satisfied with my work, I swear the Monkey was looking at me, begging me to take it out for a spin.
I know what you are thinking. â€œOld Collinsâ€™ pain meds are getting the best of him.â€
