Well a bunch of us went to Gibson today from the Owass/Tulsa area! If i remember correctly there were 6 0r 7 V Drives and a couple of Jets. Lots of fun and some fast boats there!! Yes retired flatbottom racer broke his cherry with the new boat and it is a BEAST just in initial set up that canyon broke well over the 100 mark "GPS"! Yes its a true 100 plus boat "Yes Bill i am tuting your horn" All in all it was good day lots of other nice and quick boats there---------Good Day!! Oh yeah and JETTER was there with his Jet boat, but his V drive couldn't come because he would have had to paddle it around, maybe one of these days he will bring out to play!!!:D:)hand

All in all a NICE DAY ON THE LAKE!!!:)

I'm sure someone will fix you up with directions.

First off you must attend thurs evenings at Keystone lake. Then we might tell you how to get to Gibson. :D

We saw some drag boats down at the island on Sat and were gone by the time we got down there. . James had his big bad jet boat there Sunday.

Took info Jr's boat down on Sunday. Were still testing. Got it to read 90's on GPS but is still not loading water worth a crap.

It was a good time! And for the record I remember 6 flatbottoms, 3 V-drive day crusiers and 2 jets being there. George's new Cole ride worked out nice and will be a lot better with a lower gear and the motor not shooting ducks. Seems the fuel pressure may be to low. GW's Canyon ran flawless as always and looked great Don has made a lot of progress on his Sanger. The steering seemed fixed, plates adjusted better and new prop seemed to help. He had a smile on his face! My Canyon was a little short in the gear box and hitting the rev limiter at 8000. Taller gears and we will try again. All in all, it was a fun trip!

Rumor is the island has lots of sand again like it did 15 years ago! YEA!
Jetter.....GET TO WORK GENE!

Dang you guys are hurting my feelings about the jet boat thing :D

We crossed the fence just because we wanted to give it a try.
