Hey Sean,

First time out, 75 MPH with full fuel and 6 people. I am ok with that. It's a boat intended for long range cruising ( 400 + mile range) but can still do the poker run scene. We were never first to get there anyway. ( unless I take one of my shortcuts - LOL )

Just a hint on what's happening. Trading "old" for new 38' something to be built. Don't want two - 50's to look after but a 50' diesel and a 38' gasser to rip around in makes sense ......I think?

Bob

Bob:

Thanks again for a great day on the water. There are only a few people as generous and handsome as you, my friend.

Donna has over 1200 pic's of the new Predator running. You should be the one to post them from that disk with the 90 she thought came out the best.

Best wishes for many hours / years of fun, safe boating in the oil burner.

Thanks. On my wish list yet is to boat down your west coast. I will be in touch with you left coasters about that. Next summer I want to run from San Fran down to LA and then do a poker run with you guys. This summer is fully committed. Something to look forward to for sure.
Bob

No Cat in the future Sean. As much as I would love to run one I've long said I would just end up killing myself. Not much point in that.

Thanks Tom.
I have been way too busy to post pics and if you or Donna have time please feel free to do so. Really appreciate you guys coming along and putting so much work into it. I am fortunate to have so many great friends like you and others here in FL.
I'm now out of time and need to get out on the water and do more testing. Catch up with you all later and again, thank you.
Bob
