Prop Testing Today - On Lake Michigan

Just got back from prop testing on Parnell's 41 Saber out on Lake Michigan! There were 3-4 footers and building...Not bad, boating on December 20th in Michigan!

Coast Guard came out and told us not to go so fast down the channel...We were throwing a huge rooster tail!

Probably complaining when it dips down to 65 Huh

We figured it was time to go in when the ice on the fairing started accumulating. Wouldn't want it to break loose. NK

The coastie said " Now I know there is not a lot of other boat traffic"
I figure they probably get a little bored at this time of year. Anyway they were nice enough.

Mark that doesn't look familiar now since she don't look like that no mo.
Pictures coming for christmas.
Hope everyone has a great holiday. NK
