    Where do all the Hot (Jet, V-drive) Boats go to play in the Houston area. Heard they meet somewhere on the San Jancinto river. Would like to play. Please send directions. Thanks, Jim

    A big group of us run the lower San Jac on Sundays. We put in at Loves marina on old hwy 90 in Crosby. You can look them up on google for directions.

    What side of town do you live in?

    I live in Brenham Texas. 2 years ago I bought a 1979 Sleekcraft factory race boat and have been converting it to a lake boat. Right now it has a stock 454 chevrolet, but I have a 460 Ford race motor sitting on my engine stand, that will eventually go in the boat. I will try to make the river this Sunday. Thanks for the information on the location.

    A few hang out at Welch Park on Lake Somerville. You may want to look over on Texas Hotboats.

    I bought the sleekcraft 2 years ago and have been working on the conversion from a race boat to a lake boat. Finally made it to Sommerville lake and left the boat ramp and returned without being towed. I have become friends with bass fishermen and jet skiers. I think having a cooler of beer was my biggest asset. Anyway, I hope to make the pull to San Jac this sunday.

    I really enjoyed meeting everyone at the "river" Looking forward to returning and playing all day. I'm not fully trusting the "sleek" right now, but I did drive it to my trailer, which is three times in a row. I'm really excited about this milestone, it's been a long strange expensive journey converting this hull to a dependable lake boat. I appreciate all the help from Randal, Sid, Stewrat, and Becky. Great ideas for making my ride complete. Sid don't forget to send me the contact information we discussed. I'll try to regester with HotBoats and get on their forum. Thanks again had a great but short day.
