Fresh off the Boat - From Ireland

Hi All,

I moved to Portland, OR last June.
Did a 3 month stint in a Camaro ZL1 which was awesome.

However it wasn't quite so good for loading dirt bikes into the back of, or future proof enough to tow a boat someday.
I bought this a 2015 crewmax in Sept 2016 and have been to Southern California twice and Vegas once in it, loaded with bikes, and just 2 weeks ago, picked up a new to us 17 year old boat which it tows with ease.

Loving truck life so far! (Bar the 14mpg of course)

did your boat sink? mine apparently does every 4-6 hours and when its not doing that it blows up or falls off the trailer or does some other kind of random obscure thing, it kind of has a mind of its own...

obtw...welcome

It's my drum, it's my, hold it now, it's my rhyme

Thank you!
Yes you should do it someday. I'm probably a little biased being from there, but it's a magical place.

The weather is more like Portland/Seattle than anywhere in So. Cal, but if you go dressed for that, you'll definitely have a good time

I feel I may have missed your point! haha.

I actually haven't even had it in the water yet. We bought it 3-4 weeks ago, and it needed some work, so I'm doing that at the moment. Memorial day weekend should be our maiden voyage.
Hoping for some Oregon sunshine!

Don't worry about it Paddy, most of us don't know what he's going on about.
One things for sure, he's used to salty beer (It's salty because he's always crying into it).
