Hey guys Lake Michigan was great today. And I love driving twins!!!
Ran into an OSO member, Bearclaw, Can't wait to see his new Pantera.
the Super Hawaii ran perfect. When we first took off I completely forgot about the tabs, they were all the way up. She rolled onto plane with less throttle than my old 26' Mirage did. The waves were only 1-2 footers, but I never even felt them. My wife loves the ride ,so I guess it's a keeper.
It helps that I keep telling her that it's name "Super Sweet" is after her.
I think I found a place to store it indoors, on my trailer, 5 minutes from the ramp. For $400 for the season. That seems better than that hour drive making my f150 sweat.

Hope you all had a great day too. Looks like they had a killer day down at LOTO

We are going out tomorrow. Did 200 miles on the bike today. We may just drop her in on the Chain since its a shakedown run for a boat thats been in storage for almost two years. If it breaks in the Chain, I can get out and walk it to a dock.

Glad to hear that you are Hooking up with with some local Performance boaters. Sounds like you are going to be keeping your boat at Doynes, Correct? If so, You will find some nice guys and ones that will give you a hand when needed. Matter of fact, I believe that Three or four of them are putting in around 10 am Monday(Portage) for a littlle trip for lunch and??? at New buffalo,Mi
If you get a chance why not Hook up? There will be a Sunsation, a couple of Campions,a Baja and a Formula going. Join In!!
Where in Indiana do you live? Im from Valpo,My boat is not ready yet, I may take the ride with the guys or I may do some of the work that is needed. Hell, No hurry for the work. Hope to see you there.

Just checking in here. I'm from Lowell, IN. If you're looking for a really nice clean.......SECURE place to store your boat on trailer, try Service One Marine in New Buffalo. It's not much further and the yard has CCTV's, 10' fence, and guard dogs. I kept my 31 Sonic there last year. It's 5 minutes from the launch.
Normally, we are out on Lake MI every weekend and 2 or 3 days during the week. We usually run up to Clemantines in St. Joe for dinner and hang out.
I still have a couple days worth of work on the motors before I put in this season. Man, I miss the beautiful sunsets on the lake.......the fireworks too.

Eliminator, cool I'll look for you. I'm sure we'll hook up soon. Here is a pic of my rig. I guess it's kind of hard to miss.
