Default Grand Traverse Bay Test Run

Was out on Grand Traverse Bay, Northern Michigan Sunday for a water test in a soon to be mine 38 PQ. Not a ripple on the water, 30' deep and you could see bottom as if it were 5' deep. 65 degrees on land about 40 degrees out on the water. Very deceiving! Glad I had a heavy jacket. I felt great to be back on the water so soon this year. Can't wait for this summer!

What's up Wrink & Dyno--
Sweet day, but definately pushing the season! Had to get the test run out or the way so I could finalize the deal. It will be sitting in the garage until the lakes warm up a bit. Felt awesome to be back out on the water though!!

What up Tracy.

Thanks, It's a cherry 97' with 500hp's. Ran pretty strong, I will make a better evaluation after some wheel time. Let me know if your going to be around towards the end of the month. I'd love to check out the 382.

See ya
Josh

We are up in the village of bay harbor every few months doing concrete work, we have always used concrete from cornillie. their concrete sucks sometimes don't think we wil be up there anymore, they are stopping building on these particilur houses. always liked the area, gorgeous houses and views of little traverse bay

I run Great Lakes Redi Mix, Inc Out of Gaylord, Indian River and Alden. Our plant is on the west side of I-75 in Gaylord. Can see the operation from the highway. We do a lot of work in Bay Harbor and surounding areas. I really like that area. Shoot me an e-mail if I can ever help you out up here.
Later
Josh

Thumbs up Re: Grand Traverse Bay Test Run

Went to school at Old Mission on the penninsula as a kid. Great memories. You live in an incredibly beautiful area of the country(in the summer anyways). Good luck with the new boat. Ed
