What do you secure the boat with? I guess the stern eyes are strong but it could rip the cleats right off the boat!

Hoping to hear from Raymond later to day on our "little project" and look forward to having him on the boat Sat. Next time he should stay home and mind the store while you get away. Oh, I forgot - he's "working" LOL Later.

Bob,

Ray stays here next time for sure. I heard today that all of the ice is off Lake Ontario. Not too sure on G-bay. Have a good time this weekend!

I doubt the Local Zoning, EPA, and who ever else would have a field day for this tank set up here in NY......

But it does make a lot of sense. A boat never runs the same on a hose as it does in the water..

Haven't had a boat in the back of a truck yet (knock wood.) Seriously, we're pretty careful.

As far as what's been ran in there, we only got the thing going near the end of the summer. I think the biggest we had in before the end of summer were 1075's. Not sure how high the RPM was. Swirled her up pretty good though!

I'm heading up there (G-Bay) tomorrow for the weekend to visit family, so I'll follow up with a report... hopefully I'll see whitecaps!

...but then again, its not even April yet.... . Couple more weeks should do the trick....
