Well we are off, I didn't see alot of replys of peeps meeting down there but I'm sure we will run into a few folks there from here. Sorry Billy couldn't make the trip but he's gonna do the next best thing and finish his boat. I stopped by Tuesday and it already looks nice, he's done a heck of alot to that boat. Nice job Billy, keep up the good work, we will be on the water soon.

dam this day was the best I ever had boating. big thanks overkill. I did all the things I've read about except hitting a jet skier. I can see why those who come here often do it. I talked to tx-19 for a minute. I wanted to get as much time on the water as I could. boat gpsed at 76.1 out here. not to shabby.

Cave Watched your boat leave the cove yesterday and was impressed how hard it leaves for a boat of that size.

I can see now why ou all love that place. I didn’t want to leave. I wanted to hang out but my 1st time there I wanted to get some runs in, I did. That ride from lost lake back to big river was killer. I didn’t have to let up once. Wish I had the GPS on board. I did get a reading earlier. It read 76.1 But at that time I wasn’t even stabbing it. Cool to see some familiar faces out there. Joey & his wife cruzed over to say What up. Good to to see them both!

Kevin it’s a blast to drive this boat. I can feel it’s a 21 but at times it still feels like a 19. I seen so many cool Jets & V=drives. Running in water that is 2' deep is a visual experience...

Thanks for putting up the pics Jimmy. I must say you were a huge help to me getting on and off the trailer. Thanks to the V-Drive guys to for helping me out. That's what I love about Big River, everyone alway's wanting to help a fellow boater. I didn't catch the names of the V-Drive Guys but thanks for helping me out. You boat runs awsome, I loved those passes you made.

The boat ran a heck of alot better than that single carb. TR but unfortunately I ran into the same numbers as before 69.2, but I bet if I let it cool down a few hours later I could of done better. I remember running my best at dusk. Now I will put on the MSD stuff and hook up the 75 shot of nitrous and see what will happen then.

I must say running that fast on the back side of 70 with a hand throttle and only one hand on the steering wheel is pretty scary. Much different then useing a foot throttle but I will get the hang of it.

Thanks again Jimmy for all your help, we will have to do it again some time.

Join the club. The jet boat I bought, as well as many other Spectras have hand throttle rather than foot pedal. I need to change to foot pedal ASAP. Otherwise I need a 3rd hand for the jetovator too!
