Default worst case scenario,,,

You pull your boat into one of the MANY marina's up and down the river, hop a ride back to your truck, drive down and pick up the boat.

Except for when you faulkers leave me for dead (even with my boat running 100%) I will keep ya posted as to how today and tomarrow go that will be the decider. MFB357 said that he has some props for me to try. That could help me out HUGE!!!! From 27's to 23's I think he said

I got the A-ok to use MFB's trailer for the tow down (did not think it would be a issue but I had to ask) and he has a set of props for me to try this evening and tomarrow. Should be MUCH better they are 23's I think he said and that is down from 27's!!! Like I said if I am at all concerned about the trip I will fallow DJD over and then hook up with you all at the wet pits.

Just keep your eyes wide open in the river. It was been one of the worst years in a long time for wood floating in the area.

I think that the river will be shut down right at 12:00 noon so we will have to leave the pits before then. Sometimes is difficult to get a parking spot near the pits. One year I tied up to a dock to check out the dry pits and when I returned they had tied up some big boats right around me. I had to wait until the boats left for the race, but by then the river was closed, so I had to watch from land. I will be at Gully's between 9:00 - 9:30 am, we can work out all the specifics of our trip at that time.

If any one needs/wants to get in touch with me, my cell# is
(914) 805-9576

Last night I got a great run in on the boat. Longest higher RPM trip yet. I am going to play with oil levels today to see if I can get it a little better today (I think I have WAY to much oil in there now). I am also going to try some props out today. For this trip with you all I will go for my highest cruise numbers. Shane Get the wife to come down. If it is rough she can always hop in my boat and have the SMOOOOOOOOOOTH slow ride I forgot my video camera (actually I lent it out and have not got it back yet ) but brought the digital.

You guys look like you are gonna have a blast. Mean while I have left the Bullet 130 at a Dealer this week for their "Power America" event. The 28 still isn't ready for a long road haul and the family wants to drive up and watch from Liberty Landing.

It sure would have been nice to run down that Hudson again with you guys.

Have a safe trip and keep a look out for the debris. The heavy storms that came through sure must have moved alot of $hit.
