My blown Sanger hydro should be arriving in Lodi sometime around the end of the month. I'm looking for suggestions on where to go for the inaugural launch and first ride. My usual choices would be Comanche North launch ramp or the public ramp next to Ladd's Marina in Stockton. But I have never seen a hydro at either location and less than a handful of flats. So, is there a more desirable venue?
My wife will be with me ready to pass judgment on the whole experience, so I am OK with hauling the boat up to 100 miles if necessary.
The motor has mufflers and water injection , so lets assume it is within legal noise levels.
