Thumbs up Who says you can't boat in a northern winter

Well after a hard days work nothing beats a relaxing ride at speed of 85+mph, the coool breeze off the river will refresh any one. Pre-testing for hotboat trials, only a few ice patches on the St Clair River, as you can see at the launch. We had great run but kicked in my summer fever big time. Who says you have to live in Florida to boat in February.....



Alganac, Michigan 2/15/2006 40 deg.

thats frikn great. i have been thinking about tossing my scorpion in for a quick blast on the river down here in toledo. i keep my boat in 65 degree storage so its not winterized an i can drop it right in the water.

Did not think to take GPS was last minute, boat was the new 32' SS open bow w/ 496MAG HO's, speed-o was reading around 85+. Just trying to make sure everything goes as smooth as possible in Florida. Keep your eyes open for the up-comming test review.
