Thumbs up Thank You GRH!

GRH,

A special THANK YOU to you, your brother Jim, Bill Bunting (Perormance Custom Trailer) and everyone else that went out yesterday. We stole a day and had a BLAST bombing up and down Lake George, NY. The weather was absolutely PERFECT! 70 degrees and not a cloud in the sky. We had one Superboat, one Thoroughbred (Now VELOCITY)and 2 American Offshore 260's. With the leaves beginning to change, the air still warm and no one else on the lake, it seemed like NIRVANA! Just before our late lunch stop, we were cruising about 60 and were challenged by Chris Freihofer in his ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR brand new Van Dam. WOW IS THAT THING FAST AND GORGEOUS! 85MPH and he was right there in his mahogany rocket. After lunch another burn up the lake and when we atthe ramp I hopped off the boat to get the truck and trailer and I was stung by something VERY VERY PAINFUL! I am allergic but never had any rash ot throat swelling but my right hand is (especially my pinkie) is twice its normal size! I iced ALL NIGHT and took advil and benadryl. The ice was the ONLY thing that could lessen the pain. Oh well, what a GREAT DAY with GREAT PEOPLE on a GREAT lake! Thanks Gary once again for your generosity!

Shane

Thanks SHANE.... You're absolutely right... .we STOLE that day! Glad the Bee bite didn't get to out of hand.... What a gorgeous lake.... There must be a God..... cause man could never create a scene like Lake George! May be my last blast for the season.... so I'll remember it all winter long.... Man that Wooden Ship was fast though wasn't it! Just not quite fast enough to get by the SUPERBOAT

Well, like you said about 400 times yesterday, you have the FASTEST boat out there! Your boat rubs INCREDIBLY well! I can only imagine how much better it would run with someone that knew how to drive behind the wheel! Oh, BTW, remember those pictures you asked me about, of my wife...? Yeah, I'll take 2!
