My top speed this morning was 38MPH. Love having the extra power when needed.
And I am glad I graduated the school of VinTin. Well Dan I guess we could run'em again this fall if you want?
Both of us sitting on the bow of the boat; first one to paddle to the dock wins!!! Ready Set Go!

Ray, thats to funny.I was just thinking about adding a second bilge pump on the other side of my center beam this morning.Lol! I have a bit of OCD. I will drive around in circles with the bow up and with the bilge on the low side of the boat trying to pump all the water out.

Just remember the golden rule of docking and you will be fine:

'Never approach a dock faster than you want to hit it.'

Just getting used to the lay of this land.
