Fever Fan - Yes, that was me in the 20 year old 357 with the "hockey stick" paint job. Thanks for the compliment. I always launch there at Yacht Harbor and am usually in Devil's cove, Aunt Tilly's or Johnny Finns. If you see us come by and have a beer.
Frank - thedonz - Great handle. Thanks we had a great weekend. Except I am an idiot and I ran out of gas. (All of the gas docks on the Northern part of the lake seem to be closed for the season). ooops Bob was telling me about your Gun. I had seen it advertised there for a while. That is one sweet boat. I want a Top Gun for my next boat. But, I'll have to settle for the old Formula for a while. Too much coin to upgrade right now. I am really surprised you got pulled over for being too loud. Was that while you were underway or in a cove? Was it in Devil's Cove? It's cool that they didn't give you a ticket. I thought the only noise law on a LCRA lake was at idle speed but wasn't sure. My 357 is also extremely loud. In fact it is the loudest Formula I've ever heard. I haven't been stopped yet. But, I have the motors down where they will idle at about 500-600 rpm. It's very choppy with the cams but not nearly as loud as it is around 750-800 rpm. I also make it a point to keep my stern pointed in the opposite direction of the lake patrol when I see them. I've backed out of Carlos and Charlie's a few of times when I've noticed them sitting in there. So far I've been lucky. But, I figure it's only a matter of time before they get me and I have to find some sort of muffler to quiet her down.
