    Dirty mind. I like it. If the crew was the Swedish Bikini Team...yes.

    I still fish long Range with two 100% artificial knees.
    I exploded one completely in Oct. 2005 in a head on crash at highway speeds and the other 3 years later when I fell 20 feet out of a tree.

    I do take my knee braces with me on the boats as the knees do get tired and sometimes try to bend the opposite direction.

    Extra stability on the moving, pitching deck of a Long Range boat is always a great idea.

    Good luck with the repair work.:hali_olutta:

    Since my knee surgerys I wear knee pads to cushion and protect my knees from bonks and hits. Yeah, you catch some crap but when you kneel to the tuna gods and have a nice soft surface it becomes well worth the crap.

    I'm back home, with rehab goal of a 3-day in August. I generally feel like crap. But, my knee is doing ok. He did a little extra work in there and I have plenty of staples. August is a good, reachable trip time: 3-day on the Royal Star - looking for albies and blues, I figure.

    The first person I saw upon being woken up in the recovery room was my recovery nurse - a very beautiful Filipina. That really helped.

    I expect no limp when we meet in August. We are going to slay the tunas on that 3 day.
