funny thing is . . when scott an i had the #5 boat for 5 or 6 days this summer . . i really didnt feel like taking the boat out unless it was rough on the lake. . in real calm water they are kinda boring ( not really these things are always fun ) . . .fact is these things just suck up the big stuff an keep coming back for more. cant wait till my next time behind the wheel

thanks liquid asset for posting the pic, the size doesnt do it justice though , (not your fault) and i love that pic. right place right time . glassdave you are right when in flat water with canopys on its nice to have reading material cause its just like a car then. although flat water is the best when dialing in the boats to make them run equal, which by the way is not the easiest task.

Like I said earlier: "Yep. But once you get into the 6-footers, you tend to slop the martinis around a little bit. Lost an olive once."

Can anyone out there convert an .avi file into an animated .gif file? If so, go here: Pictures page and download the file that says "Short .avi movie in rough water, then post it in this thread. This little clip says a lot.

Or just download the clip and watch it....

glassdave,
I ve been working with reindl for two years now , unfortunatley i had to do one more deployment with the Navy to europe, Where I am at now. I am sure between the two of us, we can tell many funny stories about Bat Adventures, its never a dull moment. Thats why i enjoy it so much...
