Default Can You Hear Me Now!?!?

Hey Dyno, Mr Gadgets, did you hear me last night on Lake MI? It was about 11pm, full moon and full throttle I ran from Saugatuck to Holland with some friends and we were just cruising at 4500, full moon and a 1ft chop. I could have run to the Mac Bridge!!! Man, that was what this is all about. I know you and Kaama heard me one night so I figured you may have last night. See you this weekend

running at night under a full moon is the best!! i remember one night we ran out in the lake with a 41 apache and a couple of 12 meter fountains. nuthin better i always seem to get pulled over though. being in a sport boat i think the water cops expect a drunk driver at that hour which is fine because i never drink an drive the boat. hopefully they will start to recognize my boat not be so tempted to pull me over . last time i got pulled over at 2:00am after they got done with the safety check and all was cool the water cop said "aaa . . .you might want to get your exhaust Db level checked, sounds a bit loud" so i says hey dont you guys have one of those meter thingies on your boat and he says "aaa . . . you might want to get somebody ELSE to check it out" think he was telling me if he checked it an it was to loud he would have to make it official. i thought that was funny and cool of him to give me the heads up. so i put quick an quiets on it

Cool The moon made it like day, I was 2 miles out in Lake MI so there is no speed limit or noise level restrictions. I turn all the dash lights off and I can see like day, I do turn them on for a second of course It is amazing what a full moon and a dry North wind will do for visibility, I would call it a harvest moon. I'm glad you heard me, the merc/gills are loud when the four barrels kick in I swear there is no sound better, well a fighter jet going vertical with it's afterburners on is better. Actually that noise is scary loud and is no wonder you can demoralize an enemy, they must think it is God himself roaring.

Mitch,

It was a gorgeous night last night with the full moon. I'm jealous. You should have boated down to South Haven. They were having their fireworks show last night and the place was PACKED OUT with people---lots of boats too. I headed back home to GR last night after the fireworks show had ended.

By the way the Holland webcam looks this morning, the lake looks very flat with winds at 4mph coming out of the SE. Looks like another beautiful day out there.

Just think of how your boat would sound with the tail pipes dry!
