Dave, the day you saw me on the East River was about 5 minutes after the stuff i took. Solid 1ft wall of water over the bow. Wife, 2 kids and myself were completely soaked.
That's why were were only running 35.

It was pretty rough out by the Statue of Liberty that day. We were just idling along in my friends fishing boat. My wife wouldn't of been liking that in our boat!

no hijack intended...
the hudson is usually rougher than the ER.
We ran alongside a cruise ship... that thing threw some wake.
My wife took it in stride. Never minded airbone w/ a decent landing.

Randy... enjoy the boat!!!

We go to fort gibson alot. Fun island is a good place to hang out. 30 minutes from south tulsa.

You're not hijacking, and I will certainly enjoy the boat! UNtil it becomes "too small" of course!

I've been to Ft Gibson a couple of times. It does seem like a nice lake. We may have to give that a shot. I'll PM ya some time for directions to the hangout spot.

Congrats on the Superboat! I've been eyeing them for sometime. I think hold out until I can step up to the Y2K.

We went to Skiatook last year and really enjoyed it. Very clear w/ ~8' visibility. Little bit small, but enough room to open up your rig.

Also, if you put a powercat sticker on your transom I've heard you can pick up 3-4mph and nothing but hot chicks will ask you for a ride. Chicken hawk stickers will cause your engine to lock up!

No no no, you've got that wrong. If you put a powercat sticker on your COMBINE, then the farm girls will ride and it will be a good harvest!
