Now I had her in the 28 Checkmate as we passed some No Wake buoys. She asked what they were and I explained. Then all I heard the whole time until we got out of the No Wake Zone, "Can we go fast yet? Can we go fast now ? How about now daddy?C'mon, you're taking a long time daddy!!! LET"S GO DADDY!!!
Now I just try to stay away from those areas all together...
It sort of like the famous line all kids eventually harp on, "Are we there yet?"

Your comments might just be the three biggest understatements ever posted on OSO.
The hardware was unreal, Active Thunder, Outerlimits, Cigarette, Nor Tec, Kryptonite, Sonic, Spectra, Donzi ect ect were all represented. The turn out was great inspite of the weather, hopefully Ill have some good pics from the disposable camera (didnt wont to play with the digital in the rain too much)
The 37AVH is one sweet ride. Ill be wearing out a few pencils over the winter no doubt
Christine was sizing it up to see if we were going to be able to fit it in the driveway

Except for that little "side trip" out onto the flats! I had the GPS under the roof, and it lost the satellites for a few crucial seconds. When the thing updated, it was "OH $hit!!!" and a quick 180 degree turn. (Did we drag a wing in the water?) Glad there was enough depth there....

Did you get your reverse sorted out yet? We had zero problems re-loading at the Gilford Park ramp - it was like a mill pond in there: no wind at all. It was raining, though, so I FINALLY got a little wet....

Yes Chuck, you dipped your wing...
I just finished the reverse shifting problem...
I must of missed it by 1 tooth when putting the drive on. It feels like it will shift fine now.
Depth was around 9 ft so we weren't too far off....
Ramping was fantastic on the way out. Kathleen did a great job handling the lines. I thought maybe this ramp may have been too steep for me to pull the boat out with my 'lil old Mazda pickup. But it wasn't. Pulled it like a champ! I had a vision of this guy below when I backed into the ramp!

I had a chance to speak with the photographer Tom Newby today. Tom is going to provide me with a CD that will contain ALL of the photos from the event!!! I will post them on the www.njppc.com website once I receive them and will provide instructions on how to contact Tom Newby to order prints.

Also - Congrats to our winners!

1st Place: Bob & Chuck Post
2nd Place Dan Lawler - Active Thunder Powerboats
3rd Place Jim & Carrie Courtney
Sportsman Award John Ruggeri

If you did not make our Atlantic City Poker Run, you will not want to miss our next event - Barnegat Bay Poker Run Saturday June 28th.

Hope to see you then!

Best Regards,
