Talking Philly /CD canal run 1 more time.

Anyone in the Philly area want to try to meet up this weekend weather permitting. I figure we can take a blast to the C/D canal. We can meet up around Penns landing Sat or Sun which ever is suppose ( suppose ) to be the nicer of the 2 days? Oct 12/13th anyone? anyone? anyone?

I could do it on Sunday. It looks like the better day weather wise.
The only problem I see is that I only have 23ft boat (including swim platform) and depending on Sunday traffic wouldn’t be able to run with bigger boats. I don’t have a problem running 45 to 60 mph for long runs. It all depends on conditions.

What types of speeds would you like to maintain?

Considering My boat only does 68 mph I would expect to run down at like 45-50 mph? I guess we can wait n see what the weather man calls for ? I 'm up for a run though, end of summer blast.

Hey cap071,

What part of Philly do you live? I grow up in northeast Philly, Frankford & Cottman Avenue area. Saturday nights were spent cursing Roosevelt mall picking up girls. Before your time! Met a Jerseys girl, got married and moved to Hainesport NJ. Single again!

I spend a week this summer boating on the top of the Chesapeake Bay, Havre De Grace MD. There’s a sensation dealer down their Extreme offshore. Nice boats!!

45-55 mph sounds good!

Hey Capo71,

Is the Linden ave ramp still open. Used that ramp along time ago with relatives that live up there. The Arsenal ramp is pretty steep if I remember. Linden ave was not as steep. Might be heading up there this month to run.

yes both are still open, but I think you have the 2 confused. The Linden ave ramp is too steep. I pull a loaded 28 sunsation with a 2wd pick up no problem at arsenal. I almost lost truck n trailer at linden ave.
