Well, as many of you know, the Big Clear Kahuna bit the dust a few months ago - had the gall to spring a massive leak right in the middle of my family room! It's been gathering dust for a few months in my shed. Not many people have had the courage to take me up on my offer of giving it (and the stand) to a good home - if they'd just fix it and post pics.
But one intrepid board member did speak up a while back, and today he made a long drive to my home in Wesport to pick up the BCK! Whoo hoo! New home for the Kahuna!
The member was briandmiles - helluva nice guy! - but I started wondering about his intelligence when he drove up in this little, bitty, Honda! I'm talking little!
I took one look, and it was pretty clear (didn't take a genius... ) that no way was a 75 gallon tank, AND stand, going in his little car!
But hey, the guy was nice enough to drive a long (long) way here to pick it up. The least I could do is TRY to help him get it in the car - even if I knew darn well that I was going to be stuck with the stand.
Well, all I can say is look at this pic! Amazing. Briandmiles measured it all out before he came, and sunna-va-gun he was right! It was not remotely easy, but it DID all go in his car!
Whooo hooo! New home for the Kahuna! I even stumbled across another tube of RTV108, so maybe he'll be able to fix it. I can't wait to see fish and plants back in it again!
So my hat's off to briandmiles. I'm turning over the Big Clear Kahuna name over to you now pal! You own the tank, you inherit the name to use as you see fit. Or not. Decisions yours - BCK's your's, so so is the name.
Thanks for picking it up Buddy! You put that back panel on with the RTV108 (like I should have), and it'll hold just fine. I'm thrilled to see this going to a fine board member, a good home, and a great guy! I'm sure there'll be some great pics to see in not to many months! I can't wait!
It's a fine tradition that briandmiles has taken on... and I'm sure he''ll do it proud! If you get a chance, please join me in thanking him for taking this challenge on, and keeping the Big Clear Kahuna alive! Thanks pal!
