Default Took the new boat out again

No disrespect to fellow members living up north, but we took the new boat out again. Bought a sweet 30' Scarab Sport with twin 300's a few weeks ago and took the kids for their first ride last week. They weren't keen on the loud engines. Maybe should have sprung for the 4 strokes.

Anyway, we went out again today. Pretty windy, but 85 degrees. Fork lift driver was amused when I called to splash her. He figured we were die-hard fishermen. Seas were kickin' 6-8 offshore.

Took the wife and kids out for a bite via intracoastal. They're getting used to it. We will leave kids with sitter next week and go play alone.

Just thought I'd share with everyone that I'm glad to be back on the water. look forward to hanging out this season.

For anyone living in the Tampa Bay area, Maximus and I are on the Board of a very successful charity that is planning a huge Summer Beach Bash. We'll feed details but it will be a great opportunity for everyone to meet up, party and raise alot of money for local charities.

Keep your eyes peeled on We welcome anyone who wants to come to town for our annual White Party slated for May 3rd. It's held poolside at the Hard Rock Casino in Tampa. There's more hot a$$ than a burning donkey farm.

Now that you've had it awhile, how does it run with 300s? What type/size props are you running?
I've been looking at project Sports over here on the east coast.
