Mr_V, Just so you know where Atlantic Beach is,,,,here's a map....
Ok so let me get this straight. Garry beat you there , and called you chicken .
He left while I was still fueling after saying he's running to Fire Island. Credit card machine was also broke so she had to call it into the office for approval. Took about 20 minutes from when Panther left.
My son spots him running along the beach somewhere between Atlantic Beach Inlet and Jones Beach Inlet. I say "no way its him, running too slow." I stop, call him leaving a message to wait for me at Jones Inlet, again thinking no way could that slow boat be him running along the beach. I really thought it was a fish boat. I didn't have a GPS so I gave him my position best I could from what I could see.
We run to Fire Island, he ducks in Jones Beach because its not about running, its about running to hang out and I run my boat too much and beat the snot out of it.
I say "we made it home it 30 minutes" he says "We did too at 3600 rpm". I meant from Braccos to SHBM, he means from the inlet to the tip of the hook.
That about sums it up. All it all it was an awesome ride out to Fire Island and Braccos was cool too
Now I'm over my 2 post quota for the week

You forgot the part where you ran out at 4000 and back at 4500 with some WOT spurts in between... I would think you got home quicker since your boat is soooo fast and since you went home 45 min. before us....
I can't believe I even feed into this ribble....shame on me...
Yes, it was a great day, we were happy Mr_V finally put the boat in the water and actually used it for a change....
Dee, where's the pics?
i thought there was a boardwalk fire in AC?
One thing is for certain... atleast you and I have something to talk about, Sak is stairing at an empty bildge...
Chuck's happy , 1/2 the hours on the travel lift last year were Nicks!
Oh yeah , btw , I heard a scarab sport ran across (tried) sandy hook the other day! He got about 40 feet up the beach. Must have been moving pretty good! All were ok but bruised! Captn did break his nose! I'm sure his ego too as he owns a marine service business! Do not Use your gps in highway mode!!!!
