Success! The fork lift handled the boat beautifully. I would say that 45' is just about all that this fork lift can handle, but it worked. I guess we are lucky that all of the weight is in the stern of the boat. With the forks reaching only to the front of the cockpit, it looked like it would fall at any second, but we pulled and pushed on it with the boat just an inch or two off the rack and it seemed to be stable.

We were hoping to get a run in on Friday, but the rain killed that idea so we are gonna try again tomorrow. I went over there today, went through everything and fired up the engines just to be sure that it is ready to go. I was kinda surprised. Each engine only turned over two or three times and then fired right up. I thought that they would be a little temperamental after sitting for so long, but they started, ran and idled like champs!

We should be able to get lots of use out of it now that it is right there at the marina. The staff there kinda beat around the bush for a while, but in the end they came through and everything seems to be working out.

I'll post some pics if we get out tomorrow. The forecast is calling for rain and thunderstorms, but they have been known to be wrong!

Will -

So THAT was the noise I heard on Saturday!!!!! I thought it was Rob! It did sound a little different than his 41, so now it makes sense. The head forklift operator Tim is a really nice guy, so I'm sure you'll be fine. I'm coming down Sunday to attend Dr. Berger's wedding. I'll be down all next week except Monday to come back and get my little 20' Cigarette, and I really will stop by your hotel and say hi.

I'm not sure if Rob moved his boat, I haven't talked to him since Key West.

Glad you have the old 'RDS Systems / Apache Kid" rolling again.

I don't know where it is now. The last I heard was that it was for sale, but I have not heard anything since then. That has been almost a year ago and I think that it was at TNT then, but I am not 100% sure. Maybe somebody can fill in the blanks for us.

Hey Barry, stop by any time.

Rob's boat is still at Sunset and I think that he is gonna leave it there until the end of the season. Like us, I imagine that he will take it home over the winter, but it is still there now. He was at the marina doing some odds and ends work to his boat when we came out of the water yesterday afternoon, so we got the chance to shoot the breeze and catch up a little bit.

We were out for most of the day yesterday and it was a perfect day. It wasn't too hot and there was just enough breeze to churn up some 3-4 footers offshore. It was a really nice cruising day, but unfortunately we were the only ones out there. I had a few people that work with us here at the hotel that have been itching for a ride all summer, so I loaded them up yesterday and made 6 or 7 trips to Bethany Beach and back throughout the day. It was a great day. Everybody that has been asking to go for a run got to go and the boat ran like a champ! I don't think that we ran any faster than 70-75 all day, but it was still a great time just cruising up and down the coast! That is the first time that I have spent a full day on the water here in OC since November! I think that I am going to like having the boat right there at Sunset! It really couldn't be any more convenient.

We have actually used the boat quite a few times now! Having it right there at the marina is great! We were out yesterday with Rob (41 Apache) and the guy that bought his old boat (42 Tiger). We had a blast once again. The winds were blowing out of the NE making just enough of a swell and chop to make it fun. The bay was so jammed packed that you could have walked across from boat to boat without ever touching the water, but there were not many people offshore at all.

We made numerous runs up and down the coast together and had a great time. I just wish that I had taken a camera because I could have snapped a few nice pics. Rumor has it that there was a group here in OC from NJ that all ran down together for the day. I never saw them out running, but a few people told me that they were here. I guess that Seacrets sucked them in for the better part of the afternoon!

Nice

See, it only took a thread on OSO to motivate you to get that bad boy out there a few times LOL What a week for boating, 'perfect weather' is an understatement for how nice is was (still is).

As far as fuel ... burn it ... while we got it!
