Oh it's not that bad, really. One thing I've found is that you save a lot of money over time renting. Otherwise, you end up buying a house, paying for all those upgrades, having to say Yes Dear way too many times, then you end up renting anyway. But I digress

Seriously. Wish you the best of luck. Now go out and get that boat, it might just be your last chance.

Slink.........torque/hp is still relative even with those sb strokers. So if your hp is at 350 your torque will be in the same neighborhood. It's easy nowdays to get 1 hp per ci especially with a 383 (built several of them over 500 hp). Chances are at that hp, they didn't fess for any dyno time so I doubt you'll have that info available. Just be careful and do your hw!

If they don't keep changing the forecast, Thayer and Deep Bay seem like the best 1-2 choices. I'll be down in Willsboro, protected, but no beach.

well... met up with a friend of mine in treadwell around 4:30 pm saturday (wellcraft excalibur 23). Went to champlain marina where I guess they had their annual party ! music that kept the kids awake till... 11:30 I guess, pm of course !

this morning, saw a fountain 32 launching and the red DCB 35 (sound awsome by the way). I then left champlain marina for thayer's but wind was laready a little too much to enjoy beach... so went out for a return home in some 4 or 5 feet roller that was enough to catch some air 2 or 3 times ! does not happens often !

pretty much lost the w-end but we were in family with friends and I guess that is all that really matters!

See you guys later!
