Yeah, Top Fuel was there, but they only had 7 or 8 and most shook the tires so bad off the line they didn't run full passes. the ones that did were in the high 4's low 5's and I don't remember MPH. They seemed to have more than enough room to stop. Don't know what would happen with a chute failure though I was only there in the afternoon and they were having some serious problems off the line, we saw about 10 of 46 Pro Mod cars actually make a full pass

Yeah Bobby, that was my truck. We pulled out at about 3pm. I saw your truck at the shopping center on the way up 4. Your F-250 is TIGHT!

Thanks Brian! I love it and it pulls the boat great. I am debating on selling it to get a dually or excursion though. What did you guys think of catamarans? And where all did you go out on the river at yesterday?

Catamaran's was fun. There were a lot of hoodlums rolling in though as we left. We actually saw you leaving the Tiki Bar as we walked back. Man, that harbor is DARK when heading back to the Holiday Inn. I have been on the upper Potomac late at night, and sight is no problem there. I guess I am spoiled. On Saturday, we went a ways up the river; past the 231 Bridge, and near the power plant. Sunday, we headed out to the Bay. The Bay was beautiful. Perfect 1-1.5 foot chop; exactly what the Sonic likes for airing out. We went about 3 or 4 miles out, lapped a few blowboaters as race bouys, (just kidding), and headed back in. We went to the Inn for lunch, and walked the island a bit.

Yeah there are a ton of hoodlums running around catamarins. Yeah that harbor is pretty dark so you do have to be careful. So when do you guys think you will head back down? Yeah the bay is pretty cool out there for a little chop i love playing out there when its like that.
