Now come run Lake Michigan....

Apparently the new OL's are now capable of running 130mph in 8 footers That freak'n epoxy must be mixed with magic dust ! All I know is if these guys show at SOTW and it's kick'n, I'll probably just leave mine on the trailer so I don't get in their way

BTW I've personally never had any fun (at speed) in water over a legitimate 5'- 6' cause everytime I get it on top here comes a BIG ONE ( or hole) to remind me who's boss

I guess it all depends how hard you want to run/pound your boat. Can't wait for the animal pics....

Default Waves

Ahem.

I'm not trying to stir up trouble, BUT . .

I think more like 3-4's. But steep and close together. And some holes for good measure.

MAYBE a 5 footer in the mouth of the inlets in Venice and New Pass.

THAT 50 FOOTER APACHE RAN GOOD,MY BUDDY WAS FUELING WITH HIM AND TOOK OVER 450 GALLONS OF FUEL. WITH THAT WEIGHT YOU JUS PLOW THROUGH EVERYTHING.
WICKED WON SEEING IS BELEIVING, AND THE OL POKER RUN IS JULY 10 WEKEND,I THINK THE SAME AS SOTW RUN.
APACHE PETE 5 TO 6 AND SOME BIG ROLLERS.

Well, I guess it's in the eye of the beholder.

I loved the old race days, when the reports would always say the waves were a couple of feet more than they actually were. And the lap speeds were always 5-10 mph faster than the boats actually went, because the courses were set shorter than was listed.

No doubt it was ROUGH!
