watch for rattle snakes

Just a reminder to those of you coming up to Camp Far West this coming weekend for the boat bash . Rattle Snakes are on the loose ... im maybe 35 miles from CFW and about the same terrain as the lake and i killed a rattler on the way to the lake yesterday and today my other wiener dog got bit by a rattler which means its that time so be on the look out for them ... with it getting warmer they will be coming out in forces . and remeber the babies are the one you really want to avoid no control over there venom .. be safe and have fun ..

made a huge difference in the way it rides .. last weekend we had almost 1/8 inch or more of Negative plate trying to keep it in the water and the porposing was crazy . this week we set the plates at a postive setting and moved engine 3 inchs forward. before motor popped i did notice it was alot easier to control it and wasnt porposing like week before and the plates were pretty close to where it should be ... just bummed me out , almost got the boat to how it should be riding and the motor decides to have an issue now .
