Default OMG more Havasu LOTO banter

I thought this was about how we all parked our boats.....nyuck nyuck nyuck.

I got pretty good at backing in the "LutzParty" (11'6" beam) into our 12' slip.

Now that we have a more slender, sleeker and faster craft. I bang into both sides.......... Not really.......but backing with those outdrives is certainly different than backing with inboards. IM heading to LOTO for some more practice this weekend.

Nort and Tank I know we have extended the invitation to you and the rest of the SoCal crowd to come to Loto many times. It really would be fun to see you in the Midwest next summer Or heck even this fall. Its supposed to be 82 this weekend.

Amy and I wil be in Vegas Sept 30th to Oct 4th for a bit of business and some fun any of you gonna be around

Lutz, where the hell have you been man!? What boat did you end up buying? You're going to be in vegas till oct 4th? You know that's the weekend of the poker run in havasu. We could re-live some old times! Tell Amy Kelly and I say hello.

Default Hey Tank

Ive been around a bit, I guess you have just missed us.

Yeah, Nort called me to tell me what was going on at Havasu that weekend but we just cant do it. We will be gone from Tuesday through Saturday and would be tooooo hectic to try and squeeze in some boating, as much as we would like to we just cant.

I guess we will just have to see you and Kelly when you come to LOTO next summer. 4th of July would be good (the ice should be melted by then) ha ha ha.

We ended up buying a Formula 311SR and I just realized I dont have a pic of it on this computer. I did post it on the board shortly after we bought it.

Nort
Looks like no Havasu for us on the 5th. Just cant make the changes in the trip necessary.

So close and yet so far away, thanks for the invite.

Have fun !

I always try to back in for the loading and unloading, also keeps people off the bow. Unless its just a curtesy dock then I hit it from the side.
