Thanks! I am VERY GLAD it wasn't here for the run last weekend. I still can't believe that storm did soooooo much damage to that many different boats.

I am glad no one was hurt and all of the "sinking possibles" were untied and on land before going under.

Congrat's Joe! That was quite the ride in Chi-Town last year. You were a little tense the first couple of minutes, but obviously enjoyed it I can't wait to see it up there this year.

How about "The Texas Two Step"??? or "Double Trouble" It may already be taken?

I didn't make this year's poker run either. I had to work, the one weekend a year. I guess I was lucky. I caught up with a few of the guys on Sunday at Top Water and heard a few of the gory details. 65mph winds, lightning, tornado warnings, pulled a cleat out of the dock and about 10 rafted boats floated out. Several severly damaged. I haven't heard whose boats, but I feel bad for them. The storm hit our house about a 1/2 hour before it hit Galveston. Unbelievable how severe it was. I knew a couple of my friends were on their way back to Clear Lake about that time, fortunetley they made it before the storm hit.

Was Connie C's new Skater done yet? She is bringing that up also.
There's nothing else to say about his boat other than, "Amazing"! He was nice enough to take me for a spin in it last week on the lake. Truly a beast! There is NO DOUBT it will tame any rough water day!

Here's some pics of it on the way to the ramp. I can't believe how enormous it looks on that tilt trailer behind the 450.

You [email protected]!!!!!!!!! I knew you couldn't hold out forever, and the "Goggles" pics would eventually surface!!!! LOL.... See you soon, bro!

Yeah, having not only never ridden with B, but also to have never even seen him run his Skater, I was a bit nervous. However, I must say.... I ran the traps with quite a few folks, including Bullock, and everyone's comments were the same ---- they'd ride with him anytime. B is smooth and pays attention to everything --- including the "whole" we hit on the way to the 2nd stop. EEk........
