    Default First Ride

    Well had a chance today to test out boat. Went really well. I still have a lot to learn. Felt at times the boat was unstable, it probably wasn't, might be something I have to get use to. It kinda scared me, so I am just going to take it slow and get better at driving before I put the pedal to the metal. Also special thanks to Skeeter Fogger & John they really helped settle my nervousness with my first ride.

Aaaah yes I can see a few good looking shiny tall deck motors on the beach, with barely enough fuel to get back to the launch saying, "Holy crap how fast you think that Daytona was going man? That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    Hi Ken. My hard drive crashed last week for a few days. I am back up and running. Just saw the pics today. They look nice. Tell photochick thanks for me. I wish I was getting it on more on that drive by. Cant wait to get more seat time in it, that boat really moves. My son said he really had fun with the kids. Thanks again. Dew

    Thanks She is really sweet. Ever where I go, someone has something nice to say about it. They cant believe its almost 17 years old. Also for a heavy boat, this boat moves. Still getting familiar with it. Need some tunes on it, but for now the motor sounds pretty good to the ears.
