Goodbye to the forum

Well everyone it's been lots of fun and a good source of info for me for better than a year now. As of today I sold my car and I am heading in a new direction for fun. I thought I could re-kindle my love of sports cars from my youth but no such luck. Once I drove a large offshore power boat with better than one thousand plus HP theres nothing like it or can compare IMO. Never the less I enjoyed the car for 14 months and decided to say farewell.

Again thanks to all for everything and be safe.

CJ

Wow, long putt to the Ocean for cheese land.

You could have pulled the boat with your Camaro.

You know its possible to have 1000 HP in the Camaro.

Just kidding. On the serious side, good luck with the boat. Here in Michigan, "The Great Lake State", we have a lot of big high performance boats....great fun. Have a good time and be safe on the water.

By the way, I assume that you will be romping that thing on Lake Michigan? In S/E Michigan, we do Huron and Erie for the bigger and faster boats, and Lake St Clair for the smaller shallow hulls.

Speaking of Lake Michigan, I once took a guy from Colorado to a scenic overlook on the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes on Lake Michigan. Now, Colorado is a beautiful state (I have backpacked all over it), but they don't have lakes on the scale that we have. So this native Coloradian climbs up to the top of the overlook and he gasps, "Oh my God, I can't see the other side. This is not a lake, it's a freaking inland sea!"

"Yes, they are", I said, "You can go out there and not see land for hours."

Thanks Alfie43. Have not found a boat yet but I used to have a cigarette boat 5 years ago and really miss it. If you see anything on your side similar to my picture send me a link if you could.

Best of luck to you. If you ever need a co-pilot, 1st mate, or #2 (or whatever they're called) - shoot me a PM..

Pop back in and say "hi" sometime, you know we'll all want to see a picture of your boat... Good Luck. Lori

Give me a ballpark range, i.e., length, engine sizes?
