Frank you have the worst time with that camera. This time you had to hold on to a blonde and when you rode with me the batteries ran down. I know which excuse I would have to use if I came back to port without any footage of the run. lol
Sound like I missed another great run. I finally got the boat up and running on a hose Monday and was going to take it out on a small pond and try it out but it rained the next two days and I wasn't about to take any chances and do the run. Next year for sure.

We were in front for a long time on the morning run. Note my boat only does 70 on a good day and there was no one around for along time. We backed off and waited around for everyone else. I was told by one of my passengers that if we kept going the way we were we would of been 1st. boat there. But who would want an old school Cig being the 1st. boat to the stop. LOL Remember we had a 15 min head start on the cats.
There is something to say about old school boats. Wouldn't trade it for nothing.

Ride on
