I hear that there is usually one hell of a party New Years Eve! I only go for New Years Day! get there early, put up the EZ-Up near the South Ramp and check out all the seriously baddass boats that come out! It really is quite an event!

David
11-07-2010, 06:01 PM

Doug I bet after about 10 minutes on the water you'll be ready to twist that bowtie up to enough RPM's it will look like a blue oval!! LOL!

David
12-27-2010, 05:33 AM
I bet that after Doug gets that bow tie twisted up all those boats with blue ovals will be blurry!!!! LOL

justsquirtin
12-27-2010, 01:23 PM

R U READY!!! Man, I sure this weather holds out for New Years Day!

David
12-30-2010, 11:05 AM
Nope, well kinda,....
Still not sure if I'm bringing the Galaxy, holes are repaired (I think), just need to put the seats in and I'm good to go.
You are bringing Easy Up yes?
You bringing the Tahiti?
I have BM mix all ready to go.!!!!!

78_Tahiti
12-30-2010, 12:23 PM
I think I'm going to leave the Tahiti home. I will throw the EZ-Up in though. Im hoping to claim a piece of dirt in the cove to parknear the shore. I'm also thinking I should throw a couple tow straps in, I get the feeling we may end up with a few stuck trucks out there!

David
12-30-2010, 12:52 PM
I may bring mine out then, I'll see what the weather looks like Saturday morning.
What time you planning on getting there? I'll bring my little table and a couple of chairs.
I have my strap always in the truck if needed.

78_Tahiti
12-30-2010, 05:53 PM
I'm thinking, leaving the house by 8am. that should leave me plenty of time to screw around at the lake!

David
12-30-2010, 06:03 PM
Cool, I'll keep a look out for you in the cove or by the ramp....

78_Tahiti
12-30-2010, 10:51 PM
You still gonna leave the house around 7am? dont forget to bring your cash contribution for the envelope at the store!

David
12-31-2010, 06:13 AM
Well I dunno, we're gonna be in staying at our friends in Shingle Springs and not driving home.
I don't plan on getting too stupid so I should be up and moving pretty early.
Cash? The nice thing is that when I forget they take checks too, and that's always in my truck...

What was the top speed of the last run?

The skin on their faces was pushed back by the wind.

That boat is in a completely different league than any that I have ever been in.

David
01-02-2011, 06:58 AM
90+
Me too but, that sure was a blast!!!

78_Tahiti
01-02-2011, 09:05 AM
77GT, as I'm sure Doug & David will both agree with, hitting speeds like that, with acceleration like that, in one of our little vintage jet boats, is an adrenaline rush that not many things compare too! Because of the open cockpit & close distance from "Eyeball to waterline" it is very similar to sticking your head out the window of a car at about 120mph! LOL! you ask how would I know? HAHAHA!!
