    It is a fun boat for 5 minutes then it blows up and you limp back to dock. But it always made it back.

    We shooting for a new record now. A whole tankful and that be the reason we got to come back.

    I am excited to hit the water. I was checking the safety gear today. Life jackets check. Horns check. Marine radio and charging port check. Cleaned out the cooler check. Safe for ice and drinks. Anchor and 6 mile of line check. Boom box check.

    I was laying cleaning the rollers on the trailer today. Got a good whiff of the smell of the river water. Which believe it or not smells exactly like the ocean, My wife grew up on the ocean and fished as job as a child. She is a expert on what oceans smell like. We were on the levee and we both said it at the same time. Notice how the river smells just like the ocean.

    The little boats with the side floats. That was her and her dad when she was growing up. I lived over there with her twice. 6 months one time. These are the boats they take way out in the ocean, Water comes in and they bail it with buckets.
    Was she on yours for any of the trials - or waiting until it's proven?

                            • Okay I washed it. Then store then cut the grass and watered. Video is sideways. Plays right in the computer. But aparently you tube and face book are smoking crack. They do not have the option to correct it when "THEY" screwed it up.
