Maybe 3 hours on the 24 python (sold before Memorial Day). I took it out twice - once to make sure all was well, and another for the test drive

15 hours on the sea ray - the lake was flooded for 2 months.

All in all a very chity summer, but atleast I didn't have to pay to not use a boat.

we got in one month this year, that's it. All of May and June Ian rebuilt both engines. We finally went out the weekend after July 4th, then we used it every weekend Then small nagging problems ruined ALL of August , a bad ingition box kept us out of our clubs main poker run at Put In Bay, then two weeks later a tooth broke off a gear in one of our outdrives on our way out to a fun run. We got it back in shape in time for Labor Day, we rode over to Kelly's Island on Saturday, stayed in the marina all day Sunday and on Monday when when were were leaving we sucked in so much seaweed it took 8 hours to get it unclogged. We ran the best we had all season last Saturday on a fall poker run, but crappy weather sent us home on Sunday. Now the weather is in the 60's so not sure how much more we will do. To make matters worse Ian spent so much time wrenching week nights from June through August, that we took our ski boat (sits behind our house on small lake) out only once all summer. I would say this summer was much more about wrenching then boating

I think we got out about 25 hrs total between the Formula and the Sonic this summer. The Formula is getting winterized on Sunday and then shrink wrapped some time next week . The Sonic will come out of the water and have the bottom cleaned on Sunday but I think we will be in trailer mode the rest of the season.

Went out about 5 or 6 times. Spent most of the time in "no wake" zones rafted and swimming. One more time here and then I will done, schedule won't allow and more boat. However, have a motor upgrade planned for winter so we will be able to get started early. Once again putting more money into it......Same old story.......

I've only made it out twice- once in Canada, once here. The season isn't quite over yet; there's always the fall run when the leaves turn (soon) and we never miss that. We're expecting 34 for a low tonight........
