Well, as far as summer goes, we're right on par for a great one!!
We typically do about 100-110 hours a year and we'll do it again this year.

1. No formal long trips this year, but many day trips - too many to list.
2. Driving Miklos's Super-Vee Light! That was a killer ride!
3. Which time? LOL - If you pick your days right in FL, this could be any given summer day, but the worst was about a 6 weeks ago, being chased in from Eggmont Key by a nice sized funnel cloud in the middle of a huge black-as-night T-storm. We were chased for about 3 miles when it turned in towards St. Pete Beach. Whew...that was a close one!
4. Too many to list...Enough to get into trouble.

1. A week on a houseboat on lake Cumberland.. took a few boats and was amazed by the arsenal of offshore boats.. and the problem child ran the whole week

2. When all the winter work came to a end and problem child was ready for her debut memorial day weekend.. Spanked a few big blocks boys and even the sherriff pulled me over the first 15 minutes in the water LOL! he loved the boat.. no problem with him...

3. Never been in the boat during bad weather.. lucky me!

4. I don't go boating to chase women, I have all winter to do that. I am at the lake to boat, burn gas and hang it out plus its hard when I am ugly they kinda run away anyways

Summer has been great so far! It's flying by though...

1. Best trip would have to be from Kent Island, MD to Solomon's
Island, MD. 40 mile run, wide open Chesapeake water,
runnin' about 50-55mph most of the way

2. Most memorable day would be the day I first splashed my new
boat in late March of this year. A fishing tournament had just
ended...I will never forget how many heads turned when I
fired the big block up!

3. Worst weather would be during the Kent Island to Solomon's
trip. Ran into three or four separate t-storms...one storm
threw some hail down into the cockpit!

4. Hottest hotties...I haven't had the luck of meeting many on
the water, but I did have a couple of gorgeous gals on the
boat one afternoon. One was spoken for, the other
wasn't....should've got that phone number

Memorable Day/Night...Montauk with my sweetie Oh...and the 4th of July wasn't bad either...Right?

Worst Weather...Montaulk, coldest days of the summer

Hotties...N/A

LOL Too Old, I'm almost there!
Indy, Sept is going to have to count big time! The 4th was fun!
I'm looking at possibilities for labor day weekend. Any thoughts?
I'm also making plans for some fishing off Montaulk if your interested.
Speaking of which, any OSO people interested in a little Tuna fishing?
My 42 Post is ready to go with all of the Gold Penn 50TW reels & top notch rods. All I need is a few capable people. You must be able to mix drinks and open bottles. Hotties are optional LOL.

My best trip of the yr was West Palm Beach to Connecticut!!
Swimming with sea turtles 40 miles off Cape Fear in crystal blue calm seas, far from the sight of land.
The worst, same trip off of VA 8-10 footers then 3 weeks ago on Long Island Sound in severe thunderstorms with 58-63 mph winds- ZERO visibility & 20 miles to the closest harbor (thanks NOAA for the f'ed up forecast!)

Dave...I'll be flying to Phoenix that weekend, but I'll be around one or two of those days...I'll keep you posted

I guess I was home on that weekend with 58-63 mph winds. That must have sucked
