Man I was starting to think it would never happen. Was going to try last week but the weather got bad.
Then today I get up and check the radar. Everything looks good to go. Pull the boat out and give it a bath. Load up life jackets, ropes, and all the other crap. Then I look up ad see those nasty black clouds. Not again
So I put the boat back in the tent and go in the house and sulk. After about 1.5 hours I look at the radar again, and screw it I am going boating. Drive to South Haven and it rains the whole way. Get to the ramp and it is cleared up and looking good.
So it turned out to be a great day on the water. Was some nice chop to get the boat out of the water. Also let the wife drive the boat at speed for the first time. We ran all the way to St.Joe and then back.
THe only thing that sucked is we only saw two other performance boats out the whole day. There was a 36 Sonic that was putting back to South Haven, and a red Fountain(29' I think) headed out of South Haven that does not wave when waved to.
With all the waiting for this boat to get back together it was nice to just get out on the water. I needed this after 6 months of sitting on the couch with broken legs this winter. Now they are sore after toay, but it's a good sore
