Well...it rained on me all day Sunday! My thrill for the day was charging up my batteries on the 2800 and firing up both motors! Sitting inside the cockpit under the boat canopy, listening to the motors in the rain while driveway boating isn't so bad...

Quick driveway story, remounted the pedestal on the drivers side bucket seat in the starflite. So I jumped in seat grabbing the wheel and bounced to and fro. I guess I bounced a little to long, my neighbor was on his porch yelled over “Are you winning” felt like a 10 yr old. Later I found out he was the chairman for the local boat races for like 25 yrs. ��

I had the pleasure of running the Miami - Key west Poker run this last week, I really envy you Florida guys! 24hrs ride straight through towing a boat was very worth it!

Mink, I've done that Poker Run numerous times! The entire run is eye candy everywhere you look! Amazing boats, stunning ladies, beautiful water and amazing scenery! The excitement leading up to the SBI World Final races is contagious! The street party in Key West and the boat parade is also amazing! Glad you enjoyed your trip to Florida!

Finally got my 2800 back in the water since the hurricane Irma! Beautiful 75 degree sunny weather. Timmy splashed his Enchanter/225 Opti/Trophy Plus 26 and ran 75+ with three people on board! I had 96 gallons of gas on board and did some 70 mph passes but had to back out of the throttle due to my starboard motor running hot. I think the water pump is going bad and will swap it out before I hit the water next time. It was even cool enough to take an afternoon siesta in the cabin for a change! With the amount of time, work and money I spent on the cabin it was great to get a chance to actually use it! The most exciting thing was finding a new cruising speed. Usually I'm in the ocean jumping waves at 45-65 mph, cruising the Intercoastal Waterway at 55 mph or running wide open at 72+! Yesterday, I tucked my motors all the way in, dropped my tabs, bumped the throttles up slowly to about 3000 rpm, allowing the boat to just come on plane and was able to maintain a bounce free ride at 25-26 mph with minor throttle adjustments! It made for a very relaxing cruise!!
