Default Lake Erie - Bratenahl area

Spent today at the girlfriends parents house on the shore of Lake Erie in Bratenahl. I have spent several days in the past on Miami beach and never saw and/or heard the number of performance boats I heard here today. Several Fountains, Bajas and many others. Saw one all red Fountain with a radar arch that sounded great. Another boat sounded like the drypipetiger, a big boat, but I couldn't tell what it was. Was out a ways but went by about 1:45pm then back up threw about 3:30. I'm sure many OSO guys were out there today. Wish I had known who was who. Thanks for the show!

The boats in Miami have no engines and are built from intertubes, palm trees and old cars... and they are stealth like running (or Floating) 90 miles north. that is why you dont see or hear anything.

They also have a passenger capacity of about 60

DPT - There are plenty of guy's on Erie running impressive hardware. And they don't have an "inter-coastal" to tuck in and hide. You get out there, and it kick's up, you gotta find a way to make it back.
Oh crap, I just said it...

We could hear them all day from the marina!

We left The Casino last night around 7ish and there was a group of Cigs running from PIB towards Sandusky area, one look like a newer 42X with some big power, nice rooster tail!

We came back from PIB with our friends on their 38' Donzi. There were a lot of performance boats out yesterday. It was an awesome, awesome weekend!
