I'll stand out of this recycled tease and go back to praying for 30 mph northern winds and 5 footers for July 31st.

Actually that pic was of the 35' we had last year (yahh know the length your are currently striving for ) and we now have a 42' so GLH actually stands for Grew Longer Hastily.

But if i get that 35 GL, will it be enough? Probably not. Gotta just dive right in and go for a 47 with triple staggered 575 SCI's. Or better.

An aside to all this ....as a kid I vacationed at Echo Lake Park Cabins on Long Pond in Willsboro...... gorgeous spot. Later as a young adult I returned with my young (at that time) family...... A ski show was hired to entertain the guests and the tow boat was an old national champion 16' Allison "No Pra-lem" that had belonged to a competitor of mine.... the boat had been repowered with a single 125 hp Merc engine from the twin 110's it carried in its glory days.... Since the lake is about 2 1/2 miles long there aren't many ramps....and the boat was essentially backed down a big rock slab on the trailer for launching.

Remembering this, about 10 years later (1980 or so) I brought along a twin 2.4 powered 21 Shadow and launched it on that lake and, later, Lake Champlain at the State ramp...... at that time I believe the boat was about the fastest thing anybody had ever seen up there...and I gave a LOT of rides.

The point?....none really.... except.....this won't be the first time ol' T2x has fired up Essex County......

Did someone pray for air? Oh I hope to see under a view of these Big blocks.
Keep them level and eat lunch later or wear it.
