    Houseboats create massive wakes on narrow river channels. It makes fishing a Carolina-rig pure HeII in the main channel drop-offs. I've had the water sucked out from under my boat while fishing in a pocket off the main river channel. The fall, then surge of the water level changed the depth about 3 feet. With the corresponding waves after it passed, it continued to pick up my boat and slam it into the mud. I couldn't get out of the pocket to the deeper water due to the force of the waves. Ruined a good trolling motor when it wrapped itself down against the bottom of the boat. It had a nice 'C' shaped curve in it's stainless steel shaft. I was lucky to have had my gas engine trimmed up above the bottom of the boat. Bay boats are even worse..

    Around here, a bay boat would be considered something more commonly seen in or near saltwater. It would be something that could handle some ocean waves such as those fishing boats on the Gulf Coast (near shore boats.) Usually, a center console-stand up helm, or even the enclosed cabin-cruiser style boats. Anything that has a deep V-hull design that is made to handle big waves will be called a bay boat around here. Sometimes we call them Yachts if they have living quarters, but us that have to fight the waves while fishing dis-affectionately pronounce it Yah-Chet. (like hatchet) The river channels around here are shallow in relation to other rivers. The average depth being around 14 foot in the navigational canal. If a big bay boat tries to get up on plane, it is not uncommon for the waves to exceed 4 foot due to their large draft (profile in the water). Some places where the channel is narrow will be affected severely by these waves. Most will travel at Idle speed, but a few idiots will rev it up. Boaters are responsible for any damage caused by their wakes, so if their wake causes damage to your boat, they can be held liable. On the bigger lakes, like Bay Springs and Pickwick, the waves aren't as noticeable because they can spread out more. Example: I had my Bass Tracker out on Pickwick in the Tennesee River. I was trying to get back to the Tombigbee River Channel. About a mile in front of me I saw what I thought was a small house boat comming towards me. When I got close, I realized it was a large houseboat, on plane.. Those waves were about 5-6 foot from it's wake. Because that river is so much wider and deeper, when I hit the waves, I had room to maneuver-no problems, whereas on the smaller, shallow channels, it might have washed me to the shoreline and aground. Fun, fun, fun..

    Now due to a combination of boat size, channel depth and width, you'd figure there would be speed limits which would not allow a pilot to try to put the boat up on step.

    There may be for commercial vessels, but as far as I know, none for private. There are NO-Wake zones on the river, or Idle Speed Only zones.

    Of course, I don't know how fast fish swim, either.

    Mmmm... slushies.... reminds me of the ones we used to get from the Junior Ranks Mess at Lidra Palace, Cyprus (our quarters for the 6 month tour). Vodka orange slushy was the best. Mixed in a pint mug......15 cents a shot... "Make mine a triple please." Gotta love duty free booze.

    With all of the talk and fear behind so called "Global Warming," Vodka slushies might be the next big thing that replaces the Jello Shooter craze. Sounds like a great reason to go chip away at the Artic Shelf before it melts... Make mine a grape!

    Hmm... was kinda think'n of maybe a turn through the JD distillery maybe in a week or so... but it looks like its a bit too far out of my travel line this time. Wasn't planning on going quite that far west. Oh well. Just have to settle myself with a visit to the Smokey Mountains and Knoxville this time.

    Was sorta wondering of JD tastes any better straight out of the barrel, rather than what comes out of the bottle after a long transport, because generally speaking, I don't really care for the stuff. But then others don't like my preference for the Scotch that I drink, so I guess disagreement of flavour is equitable.

    Unless you just want to get drunk, or you prefer to mix your Whiskey with other ingredients, I would stray away from the Old No. 7 on it's own. If you prefer sipping whiskey straight, then spend your dollars wisely on the Gentleman Jack. It is amazing what a few extra years of charred Oak will do for flavor. I still support Jim Beam Black over it, but the Gentleman Jack has been nice to me.

    Hmmm.. see now that's what import/export does for a product. Never heard of "Gentleman Jack", but ya VERY familiar with No 7...... so is my head and so is my stomach heeheheee.

    And no. I don't really like mixing whiskey with much of anything; sometimes mabye a bit of water or 7UP, depending on what it is, but mostly nothing but an ice cube or two. IF that. Although been known to mix Grand Marnier with ice... till we ran out of "mix" about 1/2 way through the 60 "pounder" LOL

    Sometimes, I can just about bring myself to the verge of the dry-heaves thinking about drinking the No. 7 straight. Head and belly problems, no doubt. The Gentleman Jack is twice mellowed in the Charred Oak barrels, and it isn't a blended whiskey. It comes from single barrels, not mixed and blended from several at a time. Well worth the extra expense. For those who do not understand flavors of liqours, then it won't matter, but if you like to savour the taste, much like fine wine, then the older whiskeys and bourbons will be more tasty and the flavor will be a mellow one without the "bite" of a lessor blend. I won't talk bad of the Gentleman Jack, or Jack Daniels, I just prefer the flavor of Jim Beam Black, which has a similar distilling method as the Gentleman Jack. 8 years in a new charred oak barrel.

    Now, I'm thirsty..
