Default She's running sweet!

It was another bitter winter day here so I decide to take the boat out to Lake Hodges for a test run. I just had to get the carbs cleaned because they were all gummed up from sitting. Had 'em through in a new water pump just because I'm paranoid about these things.

She runs like a dream. My dad and I ripped around the lake watching all the guys in their trick bass boats. Here I am in a 20ft center console deep V. I'd just cruise by and swamp 'em for fun.

Well, I probably could have bought longride a plane ticket and had him do it cheaper than it cost at the local shop. But at least I'm ready when the ocean levels rise.

Was this the maiden voyage? Did you bust a bottle of beer on the trailer loop and sacrifice a virgin or two? Oh, you're in Cali, cancel the last.

That's excellent news, glad she's a runner. Next stop: Catalina!

I've had it on another lake once and out in the ocean twice. It was all part throttle running because of carb cloggage.

Motor check
Bilge pump check
Bait tank check

Still gotta fiddle with the GPS and ordered an antenna for the VHF.

Bank account empty check.

Some of those dudes today had 250hp motors on tiny little bass boats!

Yeah, the Bubba Bass Boat crowd is really something. A guy in Ocala was killed in his bass boat one morning. At first they thought he'd been shot in the head, but it turned out that he was doing about 80 mph when a June bug drilled into his eye and sprayed his brains out his nose and ears.

I don't believe that new Supercollider will produce Black Holes: Nay, I say it will produce pleasure boats on a Quantum scale...........

So, you're really good with Yamaha 2 Strokes? Hmm, I know a guy who might be needing a hand with one of those. "Trabajo por carne asada and cervesa!:
