Default I'm back

It was a long ride out to Maryland but everything went fine. I'm just about over the pucker factor that the mountains caused. Brian thanks for the directions. If that was the better way, I'm glad I missed the worst.

QS,
Glad you are back safe and sound. Those mountains were going to suck anyhow-anyway What did you tow with? How about the boat? What do you think? Did you splash in that pond up there yet?

I have a 2500 Suburban with a 454. It handled it fine but the boat out weighed it by 4000#'s. A few times I wasn't sure if the boat was driving or me.
We took the boat out for a sea trial and it performed great. The bay was real rough and the boat handled it better than I expected. I do have a few issues with the boat but they are minor. I already took care of some of them.
I didn't splash it here yet. I want to get all the paper work in order first. I'm glad I boat in this pond after watching what you salt water guy's have to go through every time you pull out.

Glad to hear that you guys made it back ok. You sure got a nice rig to tow around now though. That Myco should have towed like a dream.

Hope you dont have water like we sea trialed in up your way often, but it is good to know that your boat will handle that plus some if it ever comes up.

Good luck with everything. You got a nice lookin boat.

Thanks Jack & Mark
I can't say enough about how Harry, John and everybody else at Offshore Performance treated me. The boat is great and I'm not sure I would of made it with any other trailer but a Myco. Even when it took over and was steering, it stayed straight. It will be a few years before I buy another boat and OP will be the first place I go for another one.

Roger,
Glad you guys made it back ok. I can't wait to see the pic's! Vicki and I will be there on the 26th also. Do you think you can get as much "AIR" with the Sonic as you did with the Checkmate???????
