Chris has a 35zx (something like that). Not sure if that's the donzi u mean. We got out on the scarab today and love it. Quick trio to the turtle for lunch, a stop at point au Roche to see Mapes and it ran flawlessly! Handles and rights soooooooo much better than our old boat.

one more thing..i did see one log floating...but that was it and it had a big piece that was visual from a ways away sticking out of the water. I'm sure there are probably things under the surface but there seems to be a bit more traffic on the lake and it will hopefully clear things up more.

Cruised around the bay tonight with the family.The ramp and the lake are ready for some noise.Nice night for dinner on the boat.Watched Travis Lavallee and the crew wheely across the Sandbar bridge on bikes.

I would imagine lots of clearance under the SB bridge now. Usually my boat can't make it, unless I want to do impeller changes. Did you go under it?

We stayed on the on the South side last night.The shallows are about 6 feet deep and there is at least 8 feet 0f clearance under the bridge.
