    Hey neighbor! I've taken a few schoolies off the dock right downtown where the old minigolf place burned down. They stack up in there all winter. What town do you live in?

    Correct. I just got home from the overnight shift and read in the paper that a boat capsized in the harbor yesterday and 2 guys got rescued. They were lucky someone else was out there. Water must be awful cold.

    I havent fished there in years. I jet ski'd there this past summer. 10 mins from the Gold Star to Norwich harbor. Just hold the throttle back, hunker down and fly. Sure beats driving.
