That is awsome! Of course retrieving the gulf balls may be a slight problem.

Hope that’s not the ocean…....golf balls have been known to get lodged in the blow-holes of whales.

Mark: Retrieving is half the fun, I have 200+ floating golf balls and use my kayak to retrieve! WI: You must be a Seinfeld fan!. I had fun with this, but now back to the scroll saw, my real passion…

Mike, not to worry I’m sure Chris can tell you stories about things like that. Take for instance this one: So I started to walk into the water. I won’t lie to you, boys, I was terrified! But I pressed on – and as I made my way past the breakers, a strange calm came over me. I don’t know if it was divine intervention or the kinship of all living things, but I tell you, Jerry, at that moment – I was a Marine Biologist! ...The sea was angry that day, my friends, like an old man trying to send back soup in a deli! I got about fifty feet out and suddenly, the great beast appeared before me. I tell ya, he was ten stories high if he was a foot. As if sensing my presence, he let out a great bellow. I said, “Easy big fella!” And then, as I watched him struggling, I realized that something was obstructing its breathing. From where I was standing I could see directly into the eye of the great fish!

Nice build, gets the balls over the deck rail with only stairs to climb… by the way where are the stairs?

Hey Ohwoodeye Mike, Got a lot of whales up there in Waukesha that you are close to do ya? I’ve been to Waukesha, most of the women there could be confused with… Oh never mind.

Very cool, I would be afraid once I got to real course I would always aim at the water. LOL

I have a small step ladder for the stairs…. And Robert…what is it really ? It’s a golf ball driving platform, really. I hit 40-50 floating golf balls, get in my kayak and go retrieve them. Good fun and exercise….now if I can only putt!
