had a blast saturday after finally getting to drive the new toy. she rode great , handled great , and looked awesome in the water. really like the trim on the handle button. last boat had the trim button on top of the handle. never liked it.

i must be a cop magnet. of course the day wouldnt have been complete without getting hassled by the ever present missouri water patrol. i expected it though. no pass for the local lake. dont need no stinking pass at loto. gave me a warning ticket. for a $200/year pass at a small local lake I WONT BE BACK. not sure what the 200 pays for. corp of engineers lake. thought us tax payers already payed for it

all in all , im a happy camper. love the boat
will try and post a couple of pics tommorow.

Went out monday for a St. Patty's day run. We took out a 45 Excalibur with 15 guys on board. What a blast!!! Couldn't see 40 ft in front of us but still had fun at 20 MPH! Better than workin'!!!!

Here is a running shot of me and my Boat From the Fun Run we had here March 2nd (photo taking buy Time Warp). Just to prove that the So Cal and FL guys aren't the only ones having fun in the spring. Rag's

I went out and tested a Bat boat last week. Usually it would be about April 5th, or 10th or something like that. Still can get some coldness here until the early April days or so.

I'll probably have mine ready to go in the next 2-3 weeks.......but nothing steady until May and the weather starts to stablize....

well this is my small ruber coated canvas on it seams ok at 55-60 but my large sunbrella one I only run up to about 35 because you can see the tension in it at that speed. And it tured out to be a beenie hat and ski google day so I needed a place to stay dry when waiting and going through the lock's. Rag's

Hello OSO'ers,

New to forum (well sort of, been lurking for awhile).
I put my project boat (I'm a po-boy) in this weekend (3/23).
Runs good for a couple of OB's
