Hey fellow Okies and anyone close enough to attend, Wild Hair just clued me in on an event that sounds like a real good time and said I could spread the word.
The weekend of Aug. 10 is Okmulgees Hot Boat Bash. Gonna be a lot of hot rods and lake boats. There will be a party at Red Oak campsite Friday night and Saturday night. and a live band Saturday night. So come on down and have some fun.The Red Oak area is on the east side of Okmulgee State Park. I have every intention of attending and it would be cool to have other members show up. If you need more info hit me up.:rooster:Baffles are a must, and a radar run in the upper end of the lake 2 pm Saturday. You not only get to check them out you also get to see them run. Should be a fun time and lunch is served up front on the club about noon.

I'll do my best to get some pics, but just so you know, my camera has a drinking problem. Gonna be a big time at Okmulgee next weekend. I'll be camping at Red Oak Thursday Friday and Saturday along with a bunch more hot boaters from Texas, Arkansas, Kansas and maybe even Mississippi if his trucks out of the shop. Everyone is welcome to attend.:cheers:

Means you have to have baffles in your exhaust. Don't know if that includes the thruhull or not. This is Oklahoma so probably so. When I had my logs the lake cop was giving me grief because they didn't have baffles and he was at my house to assign me a hin.:fighting58:

Oh man, if I steal some boxes full of ear plugs for the haters and overnight them Fed Ex would that count as a "muffling device"? At least the sleeper boats are safe!!!

I don't know why they even want them. I put that blower motor in mine and it's louder with them than the old motor was without them. They don't have a DB meter so they really don't have a clue who is and who ain't leagle. Barney just wants to see them in the pipes.

Hmm, I can for see an individual with, say a large lock washer tack welded into the very tail end of a set of O.T.'s saying to the LEO, Thast's how they come, if you order the Baffled Version! :biggrin:

Funny you should say that. Last year we had a blown alcohol Cheyenne with a PSI blower that made a deal out of expanded metal. Needless to say it didn't work for the LEO. I think it was because the exhaust pressure made both sides U shaped and pointed to the rear of the boat. He ended up getting a ticket. He said he is going to weld some flowmasters on the SOB to keep Barney happy this year.

Now that mine is together and running good my goal is to quit spending so much money LOL. But we know that will never happen. now its getting spent on fuel, beer and camp fees $$$$$$$ its a vicious cycle I tell you. I think it's a good thing our summer is only 5 months long, if I lived in southern California I would be living in a tent and the boat would live under an Easy Up canopy. :biggrin:

I see no problem with that. I know that there were a few guys buying the big baller boats in 2003-2005 that had a boat that was worth more than the mobile home it was parked next to.
