Post Ohio River in the Cincinnati area

Any of you Formula owners boat around the Cincinnati area on the river. Am looking to
put together a trip this summer up or down river, say Louisville or W.V.. We, wife,
and I, like to run our 312 in the 50,60,70 MPH area .
Thoughts anyone?

Hook up with the Tri State Powerboat Association. They have a bunch of runs planned.

Hey Mack 312, welcome to the board. Did you buy the Poker Run edition done @ Haynes? If so, I saw you out last summer.

Dano,

Good idea. Do they have a URL?
Also, just looking for a few boats that like to run for a long weekend.

Kentz,
Thanks, what a great site. It will help get me through till May 1. Yep, you got me, that my 312. Just got the props back from Merc today. Labing cost a bit of cash, we will see if it works!

Beautiful boat. I happen to live up here by Haynes and remember stopping in from time to time while he painted yours. Funny, I just spoke with John York today and am having him lab a pair for me. Going to keep my originals stock, you can't trust that river.

We could do Louisville for lunch and be back in time for dinner

Kentz,
Thank you, we real love the paint. I have a pair of 28's to get the 312 out of the hole with 5 or 6 people in it, and the 30's that were labed for just the speed runs with 2 of us on board and a sniff of fuel. Merc said that the 30's should give me 2 to 3 MPH. I have the base line from last year on the GPS so we will see.
By the way, what are you flying on the river?

Wow - I'm running 28's. Don't think I could pull 30's. I thought you had 330's or mags in that boat?

Kentz,
Yes, I have 454 Mag EFI's 385hp ea. Tuff to pull the 30's with a full load but the single step helps. I shure do need the tabs but that's what came on her from Formula. Merc says the thiner blades will help a little.

Got you E-Mail but also got a [Unable to display image] so no pix! Give it another try I would like to see it.
