Not the biggest gator but as you can tell from Skip's condition the gator, and the smaller one ( 8' 3" ) that is already in the bottom of the boat, were about enough for two old guys.
If it was not for the fact that we are both kind of scrawny ( The gator weighed almost 100# more than the two of us together ) and if we did not have 115 years between us it'd not be much of a thing........but getting old sucks!!
Trust me.......do it, whatever "it" is, while you are young. And then store up the knowledge so your brain can pick up the slack once the back goes. If you end up both wore out and dumb like we are life will be tough.
