    what governs a Christmas bonus fellas ?
    length of time at the one job
    effort
    salary average
    personality
    company profit

    does every one get one ?and are they all the same size?

    in the fishing industry , ive never known any one to give it in cash .

    What kind of license? I once held a 200 ton/200 mile tugboat operator license. Retired and expired now.

    I only drove 70' houseboats on Lake Powell in N Arizona so all I needed was a 25 ton with a tow endorsement. Those boats were flat bottoms with 3 story superstructure so it was kind of like driving a shingle with a sail on it. Like you I'm retired from it also.

    I should add that the boats were an "after retirement" gig and not a vocation. I spent 40 yrs driving big jets and small around the world at times before the boat gig. Just always like boats and started at age 5 or 6 driving the family fishing boat with a 1944 Johnson outboard (which I still have and it still works) but we're getting off track here for the thread. Sorry.

    Thanks Cliffy and apologies to the OP for the hijack too. My experience was of towing big barges with big tugs up and down the West coast from Seattle to Alaska to San Diego.

    Rob, So what is the new rifle going to be?

    I'd save this years bonus and add it to next years bonus to get a really nice double barreled single shot rifle.
    H&H come to mind..

    After all, you did mention rifle twice! Just combine the two of them.
