It took us 4 hours to go 35 miles and my bilge pump ran most of the time, twice it couldn't keep up and we would pick up a miss. We even (on both boats) tied 50' lines around our waist and the other end to the largest fenders I have and laid the fenders on the rear seat. we didn't think we were going to make it and we couldn't turn around and thought if some of us ended up in the water the other boat might be able to hook the fenders and pull us in. I was never so scared in my life and it lasted 4 hours. JB

thats when its big when the boat you are following or leading disappears for 2 seconds.

Not 10's and no pix but the Tiara salesman was running a 43' and couldn't believe we were out there. First run of spring 2004....with the 35'...After 30-40 min it was time to come inside.

Marc, why don't you show the pics of you running in the big water? Or were you like the rest of us and holding on for dear life? We were just concerned to make it to Charlevoix alive. Everyone on our boats had there heads stuck in plastic bags vomitting and Ron and myself didn't dare take our hands of the wheel or the sticks. When we got back to Charlevoix we learned that they wouldn't even let the Beaver Island Ferry go out.

Soaked the photographer hanging out on the skid of the chopper on this one. Said he had water running out of his shoes. 4-6's with some 7's thrown in:
