KILLED a couple thousand brain cells @ our 3rd annual Labor day "Ferry's TIKI bar" party. That damn Amber Lager that my buddy Kevin brews, that beer is soooooo good!!
The Velocity ran great, drove down to Satelite beach, picked up my oldest daughter for the weekend and let her drive all the way back home!
MAJOR DAMAGE? $ 430,000.00 Mama found a new home she wants, here's the view out back!

Boat ran fine all weekend.

However, one of our guests dropped our 35mm camera in the water at the DOCK!
Oh well at least it wasn't the digital.

Everything ran great all weekend. We even went out today for one of those "business lunches" fun waves out there today.

But, I had one rough night when I thought I lost my wallet in Holland MI, Sunday. It had to have fallen out of my pocket onto the deck of the boat as I was tarping the boat in the slip. My wallet was under that tarp. that was fine untill a storm blew in and blew my tarp off. 2 Sea Ray cruisers from Chicago that were next to me, put the tarp back on for me and found my wallet laying just 6" from the edge of the boat. It would've fallen into 20' of water. It's amazing that the tarp didn't slide it into the drink when the tarp blew off. The guys tossed it down into the cabin. Now I have to wait for all my new credit cards to come, I cancelled them all just to be safe.

Thanks to a few very cool fellow boaters!!

well I am surprised ot say the least that mine has encounted some sort of small boat advisory limitations from LOTO

Sat leaving party cove I choose to stuff my cat down by where the main channel meets by Shooters21.
Came up of a few crusiers wakes

Aluminum rubrail pulled about 6 rivets out and lost the rubber insert.
Sunday I squezzed the rubber insert back in but lost the first half under the Community bridge. Cut that part off and by the time i made it to Party Cove, the rest was gone.
Good thing I have a new insert here at home. Project for tomorrow.
This Cat is trying to keep up with the Big Dogs
