Finaly picked up my boat on Friday. 4:30 pm, was chilling ! Made a 1 hour trip back to Canada from richelieu river... Temperature was so cold the boat was smoking! Did'nt buzz you GLH, I was sick on saturday and sunday. I only made a 2 hours ride in missisquoi bay sunday morning. Next week-end I would like to meet you so we can inaugure the season and maybe introduce wifes etc.... Maybe we could also go for a lunch at Naked turtle. Will see. Wife is a little nervous about her english. Well, that's good stress... ;-) She understands pretty good but she needs some practice for the speaking... That's kind of cute anyway. A touch of french charm ;-) . «What do you do yesterday?» ;-) ;-) ;-) Anyway, I do not claim my self perfectly bilingual as you guys could see...

Kanoo : I was ready to send my prop to York well, I just found someone here in Montreal who apperently as the skills to do it. He wants to add more cup (1") and reduce my RPM by 200. He says that going to 300 makes the blades realy thin. So I'l give a try. Is only 200 $ and CANADIAN $$$ ;-) ;-)

Oh one more thing JS. Hows the water level for going under the bridge into the big lake????? This time of year theres no bridge attendant....One year we actually had to find a spot between the pillars to get thru, and we had to push down on the boat as we pulled ourseves thru

JS- was out Saturday went around Isle Lamotte and back had lunch at the Turtule, made about 75-80 ,miles all together. Crossed a couple Baja's going North they were going South I slowed tough maybe you but they went by. Crossed again the other way and raced one he had a few MPH on me looked like 25' or something 1 engine and about 70MPH

Talked to manager a the Turtule about the run so they are all set. Back at the ramp a couple Fountain owners came up and told me they heard about it??? and wanted to join if I didn't mind,,, like I control this thing to me the more the better, I wouldn't be surpeised if we end up with a count in the 30's if weather is good looking like a blast. This weekend is in Lake George with the Family. The following WE I think we're'm zipping up to St-Jean my son and I. K-Lee is is in FL taking a couple fishing boats from Marco Island to Key West with her fellow blond toots that has a house on Marco. Keep in touch JS and get a freakn Gold membership at least!!! My wife speaks french so tell yours to relax my son might look at you guys funny although!!!

Kanook- Get your procharged arse up here. I'm not big on strip joints or Chez Diane for that matter that stuff gets old when you go everynight when you turn 16 for 4 weeks in a row!!! You going to Lake George this WE by any chance? PM me your phone # I have a few wrench questions I need to bounce a knowledgeble fellow like you. CYA

Not going anywhere this weekend. Putting in my Docks Thursday Night.(lots of people waiting for me to do this) Then I have a Canadian wedding Saturday Night, (which we know those last till Sunday night...lol..
No problem with the wrench questions, give me a call. Cell is 413-531-0948. Been meaning to give the guys that number for the August trip anyway...lol I already have your number programed in my cell. Just identify your self as GLH when you call. I know your thick Canadian Accident. ( thats how my father say accent.) won't be enough to know it's you. All my relatives have thick accidents...lol
Talk to you soon..
Claude
