Ok doubting dude:

Rivetheads chasing (in vain) Dr Chip's high powered plastic boat and heading north into the unknown. What ominous sky?



Who's driving the boat?



Crime doesn't pay. Drug deal gone bad on Lake Lanier. Perps had to run their damaged craft aground and attempted to escape into the woods. No idea how that went but the boat is pretty trashed. It is partially submerged just east of Margaritavill at Lake Lanier Islands.



Did it rain on our parade? Nah. A bit of precipitation while we celebrated at Pelican Pete's with adult beverages and lunch, but after that, all in all, another great day at the lake. Probably around a 60-70 mile run. Van Pugh to Clarks Bridge, Clarks bridge to Pelican Pete's just south of Brown's Bridge, Pete's to Baldridge Marina, then back across to Shoal Creek and back under the Island's bridge to Holiday Marina and back to Van Pugh..........whew.

Great Day for Boat Crazy, Vin, Cheep, Merky and the Mrs.

Who me?

We don't have to limit this to just a one day, one time outing. Hartwell is a big lake. We could after all, schedule a 2nd excursion/exploration date. Our schedule is more open after this next weekend.

Been out working on the nav lights and wiring this afternoon. The original lights were grounded to the hull.............

I think we'll do some mid-late afternoon running around on Lanier prior to the Thursday antique boat gathering at Lake Lanier Islands this Thursday.
