Default Little trip on the Saginaw bay with Fischan

Had a ton of fun. Met up with Fischan and Formula 336 and twin HP465's. Got passed by the pictured Skater, I was running 76/77 on the speedo when the skater passed us, no GPS on at that time. On the way back in I turned my GPS on and we were running 74 on the speedo and 67 on the GPS. I'd say we were right at 69/70 as he went by, pretty cool to see. Had a great time and was cool meeting another member. Still have a lot to learn about driving the new boat smooth in the waves. My Donzi was a bit different to be smooth.







In this pic you can see the Forumla makes my boat look like a baby :lol:

Boat looks good Justin. Probably wont get out this weekend cause of rain, but hopefully the following weekend. Yeah good luck keeping up with Scott or Dan who ever was driving in that Skater. 150mph+

Thanks man, I'm hoping that rain forecast changes by the weekend. That Skater was bad, I have no desire to go 150 on water but it was cool to see it going by like that.

We were only running 120-125 when we passed you guys. Was a nice day on the bay for a shake down run.

Hi fevers, that Formula pictured above is mine. We just bought it and have only had it out 2 times so far. It came from the traverse city area.

My bad, looks very similar to another one I see. I think I saw you going in by independence bride and made an assumption because that's where he goes in. Glad to see another offshore boat in the area. Congrats on the new ride.
