Good for you Gordon. Looks like a few other folks had the same idea at the ramp.

I still have no definite date... Kids keep bugging me every time the weather is nice though. I know it is way to cold for them to get in the water though, and none of them are patient enough to just go for a ride. Lol. If Lake Hartwell were higher, we may have just went for a ride already this year, but the 2 ramps that are close to the house have dirt at the bottom of the pavement showing :(

My ramp is 40 min. away so I don't go unless we're gonna play. But, it's gonna be warm enough here pretty quick. They say 81 tomorrow. Need to git er done.

It was a busy day at Hurricanes on the Dead River believe me! White caps sucked for the ride out, but the conditions on the southern shore line of Lake Dora were worth it!!! Next weekend aiming for the 3 mile shoreline of Little Lake Harris if the weather holds...

I always wait for summer and is damn excited to enjoy it in Florida. I am always forced to go for a a vacation but i like more here in cape coral. You have so many things to do and enjoy. The environment becomes so lively and enthisiastic here:)

Seriously?!?!? How deep is the lake? That's a long way to back a boat in... No quick trips back to the truck for a forgotten item there...

First day out so still some bugs to work out with the boat but not the worst surf wave I've seen. Need to work on stretching the pocket but definitely a good jumping off point. We will be back on the water today as we are looking at mid 80's with water almost 60.

Not me in the pics... my friend was to lazy to launch his Malibu. :roll:

forcast for this sunday 86 and partly cloudy. Now I dont know the lake temp but my pool was 70 last night.

stereo is done

balast is done

torn seat cover redone--Thanks Kaneboats for the tip to pull the 5004 staples out and just have it restapled-guy charged be $20.00 to staple it and after watching him do it, I would say money well spent

boats full of gas

still need to swap out the impeller-but hey thats only a 1 beer job

But best of all is my daughter is itchin to go and try out her new wakeboard. Words Ive been waiting to hear for sometime.

Sunday could be the day to the start of 2012 boating season.

no pics, but I've put about 10 hours on the boat so far far in 2012... Life is good again in Central Texas.
