TwinO/B,
Where do you live in Sebastiain? We live on Merritt Island, and boat down your way quite often. There is about 6 of us who are OSOer's and run around the Indian/Banana Rivers and the Atlantic also. Drop me a line the next time you go, hopefully we can hook-up.
Dean

Thumbs up

Nice RC71 In that very first pic you posted there I almost thought you had mounted up twins (or triples! ) on that beast ... little optical illusion with the boat in the background The different cowlings gave you away though

Glad to hear you're finally getting her dialed in and running strong. Now ya just gotta leave the ole lady at home on those windy days ... or at least drop her at the bar to wait while as you take flight over a few swells.

Yeah TwinO/B where you running in Sebastian ... or where do you keep her moored? My bro just moved his a$$ down to Sebastian too (formerly from NJ), this past year. He is right near, block or 2 west, of Capt Hiram's Sand Bar Great place!! You guys ever been there with the Sonic? ... prolly not yet if you just launched it, but a MUST visit place.

Thanks,

I noticed that optical illusion also when I made that pic my desktop on the comp. yesterday I may still mount twin 225's on it next year, I have to reinforce the transom, and put a bracket on it first, not sure if I wanna subject the old girl to that kind of stress, or just save up for a 300

Next time the 'Ole lady is staying home, but after spending 3 years every weekend, and every night out in the yard working on it, and most of our spare $$$$, she deserves a ride to the bar every now and then

Hey Frank,

That is Old Key Lime House, it is the oldest waterfront bar/restaurant in Florida. It is just North of Boynton inlet, southwest side of the Lantana Bridge. They have 2 retaurants, and 2 Tiki bars, the owner and his wife split up, and divided the place, one side has table service, and full meals, the other is barfood at the TikiBar. It is an OK place, but not really worth the ride from Miami, I just wanted something different than 2 georges/Bananna Boat, and couldnt deal with the idle to shooters, or the cove, I plan on doing a day on the water in lauderdale soon, if ya wanna drag the Cig up to Shooters.

Rick
