20/21 is okay with me. Sat or Sun better? Either is fine for me.

I'll take a bunch of pictures if I go. This is the busy time of year for my business so it's hard to get away.

I'll bring my camera to SEMA this year, and get some pictures to post on OSO. It's a good excuse to upgrade my membership on OSO, too.

Bada Bing, I'm afraid I'm only going to be at SEMA on Thursday and Friday.

I really appreciate everyone's advice. This is a big help. I was a bit afraid there wouldn't be anyone up in my neck of the woods. Glad I was wrong! Seems like there is some great camaraderie, too.

BIG THANKS to Baja Fresh and Tank for offering to "break in the new guy". Looks like I am going to be on the water this weekend!

Michael

BTW. Michael, just thought I'd post a photo of Tank so you will recognize him when you see him!

Sorry, tank! Couldn't resist.

Baja Fresh was kind enough to take this newbie out for his first offshore performance boat ride. The day was perfect. The sun was out, it was warm, and there was virtually no wind.

We put the his Cigarette 28' in the water. First engine started perfectly. The second engine had a dead battery. Baja was equipped. He jumped the second engine.

Just as he was coming back from taking the truck and trailer to the parking lot. The first engine started sputter, "pop, d, pop, pop" and died. Then a few seconds later the second one did the same thing.

Baja took the spark arrestor off one carburetor. It didn't take long before we decided that there was water in the fuel. We didn't have a filter wrench to remove the water separator, so that was the end of our day. That's boating!

Here's the boat with Baja at the salt wash off station.
