Hey Brian they make motorcycles with 350's now. Opens up a bunch of buyers for your engine if you decide to upgrade to something big like a 454/330HP or something, we would not want you to split that stepped hull or anything like that. Heck you might be able to take that crystal slipper in the ocean or something, go big Cinderella.

THe little women likes those 31ss sonics I told her be prepared for a triple fuel bill " get her wallet out
compared to the Miser of a 350, other choices are Jafo's Active thunder or a low hour 28ss sonic which is not enough of a jump for me

Default Directions coming South from I-87

Coming from the South up I-87 to the ramp in Mallets Bay:

Best and most direct way trailering would be to take:

-Exit #29 go East on RT-74 for 17 Miles toward Ticonderoga. (this portion is the hilliest you will run into)
- At the intersection of RT-74 and 9N turn Left (North)From the intersection of RT-74 and 9N it is 60 miles to the ramp. Click here to get the directions exactly to the ramp in Mallets Bay from Ticonderoga.

You will have to drive thru Burlington. However I have done it often pulling the Cigarette and It sould not give anyone a problem.

When you get into Burlington coming North on RT-7
- You will pass a series of car dealerships Chevy, Ford, Dodge and so forth Keep going North on RTE-7
-A few miles passed the dealerships there will be a TGIF Restaurant on the Left side of the road. Keep Going North.
- 1.5 Miles passed TGIF you will come to a rotary TAKE THE ROAD LEFT of the Century 21 Office and keep going down the road another mile or so to Main Street.
-Once to Main Street follow this map thru town.
*Down Main St.
*Right up Battery Street
*Right up Pearl Street
*Left on North Champlain St
*Left at the End of N Champlain St
*Right on the Beltline
-Once on the Belt line follow the road straight (it will turn into Prime Rd.) about five miles passed Mc Donald, The Boatworks and so forth
-At the end of Prime Road you will see the Champlain Club Marina.
-Turn right and the ramp & parking area is right there on your left once in the water check the next post.

Glad to hear your problem wasn't too serious.

I'll be there with my '66 Donzi 18 for at least part of the run.
Now if I can just remember how to get to Malletts Bay....

Frank,
Yes Dear, there really are thunderboats on Lake Champlain.
