Default Skaterfest Practice

I was sitting in Windsor,Ontario by the Detroit River today, around 4 PM and just happened to see a real nice looking Skater come down the Detroit River to the Ambassador Bridge and then turn around and headed up the Detroit River towards Lake St. Clair. The Skater looked like it was about 30or 32 ft. and had the numbers on the front, 711. I think he was practicing for the Flight Club Skaterfest on June 25, where they are suppose to go from Bridge to Bridge (Bluewater Bridge to Ambassador Bridge). I'm going to keep looking to see who else tries to get in some practice time as the Detroit River can be rough at times.

I have been in Jim's boat a bunch of times. Other than mine LOL, it is the nicest 30 out there.

Three weeks ago, a day before Jim left FL with his boat,
we went out for the day. Here are some pics
