Exclamation Chevelle

Thanks for the info.
Yeah, hell $150. is too much for my blood. That's half a rebuild on one motor
I understand the Gulfstream as well. I think I read 3 MPH heading straight north!!
Yikes!
But that is one reason I have both motors apart right now and doing some improvements.
It won't plane on one motor as is and will only do about 7 MPH (gps ) before the prop starts to break loose from the motors being too high.
I am installing huydraulic jack plates so I can bury them to make it plane (get home) on one motor.
I am actually starting to think it might be fun to trailer to one of the firtst Keys and dump the boat and head South.
Last time I did Alligator Ali we were only pulling a 13' Whaler but I still think we made it in an hour 45??
Way too fast but the trailer did'nt break until we got there so what are you gonna do?
Am really looking for to playing in the ocean again. (towed to the outter banx once)
Lake Eries waves are as big as the oceans but they're ten freagin feet apart!!
We'll have to hook up once we get down there.
We will be bringing both boats with us too. The little one for the rivers, inland water etc.
The Sonic for the i.c., Gulf and Ocean. Would be good to have some one to follow through the shallow stuff.

Gary,

Were you on the Muskingum River one weekend 4 - 5 years ago?

Definitely gotta hook up when you get here.

I need to save this post,

FINALLY, someone admits Eries waves are not the same as the ocean!!!!!!

You should talk to Tim, he is a nice guy, does good business, and loves to go boating. If I wasnt workin inside in the A/C, I would be installing for him. The Gators are not that bad.

Ahhh, its only a toe, thats why god gave us 10!!!

Seriously, I am sure they see a few while installing in the Backwaters, But I have been here for 19 months, 13 of them living along the Hillsboro Canal, way West, 2 miles from Loxahatchee park in the Everglades, and have not seen 1 gator outside of the Glades. I am sure they are there, but not as common as you would think.

PS, Just thought I would let you northerners know, it just started downpouring, first rain we have had in WEEKS!!!!!

rchevelle71, it started raining here before lunch yesterday, with thunder, and hasn't stopped yet. We had a tornado watch yesterday from 10am to 4pm and a couple severe thunder storm warnings tossed in too. Even had a little bit of hail.
We need the rain and it sure beats having snow.

It all sounds great.... I've had the same thoughts myself... everyday!!!! Cold weather just sucks!!! Just have to get use to that salt water..... I've only had my current boat in the salt a few times, after each time we bring it straight back to the lake... what a feeling that fresh water brings!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.....
