Twin 250 Mercs or Yamahas?
I've had 2 Donzi 30 ZF's, Sold the first one to try something else, couldn't stand it, had to go buy another 30 ZF. Great boats, with 250's in smooth seas I could run 75 +.

Merc's.4 strokes...last one had 3 250's, did not like the  maintance  with 3 though.

Actually Don they're referred to as reel mowers and the one in the photo also has a roller behind the blades to flatten the surface after it clips the grass. A reel mower actualy cuts the grass similar to a scissors action as opposed to hacking it off ( and splitting the blades) like a rotary mower. I could be wrong, but I don't believe you could even find a rotary mower in the barn of a golfcourse. Even the big suckers they use on the fairways are reel style mowers with multiple reels. Back to putting greens, on average every green on a golf course costs $100,000. It's incredible what goes into building a PGA standard putting green and once it's built the maintenance is every bit as detailed. You could do a lot worse off in life than to be the head greenskeeper at a 1st class country club.

Now somebody call the Cash Cab so I can make some money on all this crap bouncing around in my head.

Had no idea.  Simply assumed it was expensive.  But no idea that even basic maintenance was so involved.  I can remember when I was 7, maybe 8 years old and I was first told to "help mow the yard son" the mower we had was the poor small cousin to that thing.  It had that rotating reel barrel thing on the front.  No power mower though.  Just shoved it through the yard.  The grips were probably like ape hangers for me then.  Can remember taking two afternoons after school for me to get my part done.  Man, wonder what my allowance would have been if I'd been pushing that sucker across a golf course  ??? .

I'd like to learn to golf someday, but right now I'd rather ride.

Pete, I remember some vender in MB that was selling a golf club holder that bolted to your bike. Best of both worlds, if you want to chase that little white ball for 4 hours.

I hope so.  Barring more stupidity it should be.  Right now I'm counting on it.

Chit........if I want to get frustrated, I'll go to work.  Certainly don't need any more frustration, and that's all I get when I try to play "Pasture Pool."

Much better to just play it on the computer.  I've personally kicked Tiger Woods butt so many times that it's getting a little boring.  :zzz: Best part about this type of golf, no hunting through the woods and weeds for the ball.

There you go, Jerry...I've never played the game because I was afraid I might like it and add to my list of vices.  I'd have to take at least 2 dozen balls to get through 18 holes.  I've always thought it was just an excuse for guys to get away from their wives/kids, drink beer, smoke cigars, and gamble  ;) anyway.

The only thing I got against it is that it takes so loooooooong to play, especially when you shoot a 10 on each hole   :huepfenlol2: :huepfenlol2:
