Default One last run on Lake Michigan with Nauti Kitty (many more Pics)

Well we went out for one last ride today
It was cold and ice was forming on the pier but under helmets and big coats we were comfortable
even after one or two bow on wave sprays

we were running in 6 to 8 footers with some 10 foot holes once in a while that would come out of no where

some of the pics make the water look fairly tame but i am also attaching some good shots of what the waves looked like close up trust me they were building pretty good

running back and forth the best speed we saw was 82 MPH running in the following seas on top of 6 footers
we got some incredable air a few times

after a run with my self on board along with the owner of Saber marine, Waterfowl, Nykamp, and of course Nauti Kitty driving we went back to the launch area I got out and drove out to the beach while Parnell loaded a different batch of riders for run number 2 of 3 for the day

Parnell changed props each trip and with the waves we werent going to hit top speed

I walked out on the pier and took the shots i am attaching for everyone to see
please be patient as this will take a few minutes to keep posting the pics

Was a great day

Thanks Parnell for the last run of the year

Maybe we could take the First run of 2004
if we can find open water
