Gl,

Whats the height of that boat? My friend Mark ran into trouble coming up the Hudson with his 48 Silverton. He was 17' 3" after taking his radar arch off. They had to put 3000 gallons of water in the bildge to get it under one of the bridges and still scraped the top going under! Your's looks to be even taller?

Default B0at Height

Height should not be a problem as GLH is a member of the BOOZE FOR BALLAST CLUB.

Made it to AC around 11:30 Last night....

Quit the run on the outside got a little rough so we hugged the coast of Maryland and Delaware, by the time we needed to cross Delaware Bay it had subsided somewhat and all went well...

Had to stop and empty the fuel filtres in 6 footers thanks to both my crew mates that was done relatively painlessly.

Shooting to make it to Albany and maybe a porton of the Champlain Canal tonight and again if all goes well we will be in Vermont Thursday.

That Spot thing rules...

A BIG thank you for NJgr8fll and CasinoRunner for helping us dock and meeting us upon our arrival in AC around 11:45 PM. We had a great time on the rig and strangely enough for someone that has always had speed boats we could all fit comfortably, drink and tell each other lies without having to open a hatch to raise your elbow!!!

Thank You Very much for the gift and they had the privilege of contributing to the first dead soldier on the new boat, nothing like a bottle of Jack to whind down 200 miles of salty offshore running...

Great Jersey hospitality guys come up and see us this summer.

Yes that was roughin there last night. We didn't even venture off into the casino at all! LOL I almost ended up as a stowaway and for no other reason than I could barely walk! Great time, great crew, fantastic yacht. Thanks for having a couple degenerate NJ boys (well one claims to be be from NY, NY ) aboard for a few drinks or bottle Was (still am) suffering for it this morning, no meeting today

Be safe, hope to see ya up in VT
