Thanks for the comment on "mrbangham's boogie". I don't have tabs for it. (Don't know how to get it on paper.) The guitar is tuned GDG and the riff is the old I IV V progression if that helps.

Capt. Nick - how about posting some photos of your first builds so we can see what you are working on! I'm interested in seeing your first diddly bow (I've yet to make my first one).... also - is that a pontoon that you're cruising in? I live up the coast from you and am interested in getting a boat at some point but need to do a lot of research first. I would like something like a pontoon to cruise around Rehoboth Bay, but then sometimes I think I'd like to be able to go out on the ocean to do some fishing. I love to striper fish (well, any kind of fish for that matter). Fishing from the pier is ok, but the stripers like the rocks and I can't cast really far into the inlet where they tend to come in and out of the bay as the tide comes in or goes out. I fish for Tog in that area and have good luck, but on the pier, I catch a lot of shark, eel, skate, and of course, crabs.... I've landed some nice flounder, but the fish I like most, sea bass, striper, bluefish, well a boat comes in really handy....
