Were coming down there on VD around 6pm, what time is the wedding at? I would rather not be there for that. My lovely women will be hounding me for the rest of the night on why it would be a great idea to get married. :lol:

I had my daughter clean her yesterday. That's when she got to know her really well and discovered the swan was indeed a girl so she named her Gertrude.

Rob, do you know if there are any exhibitors featuring Lowrance chartplotters at the show?

Thanks
Steve (remember me, from EDS).

Pretty sure someone will have some there.

Based on the condition of the boats and Gertrude this morning it looked like there was a good crowd.

I thought I asked nice to be kind to my boats.

How's the show looking this year? Is it a pontoon/jet-ski/bassboat fest?

There's a fair amount of pontoon boats but there are a lot of cruisers as well. The hall is filled.

Speaking of ski boats did anyone see the electric ski boat?

I did. It's painted green (obviously). I didn't get a chance to talk to anyone about it or get any specs on it... seemed more like they retrofitted a boat rather than made a production boat. Would be nice for an inland lake if it had enough runtime though.

Gertrude is getting areputation for being "easy". From where we sat in the LSCN booth it seemed that EVERY kid that walked by got to ride her.

We had to wait till nearly the end of the show for Tigs to get a seat aboard Gertrude. There is a pic on another thread.

2 hours of run time 4 hours to recharge. Or you can upgrade to a better battery where you get 4 hours of run time and 4 hours of charge time. regular list on ski boat is 50 to 70k. the Electric is 100k. Talk to manufacturer of the whole electrical set up and was very interesting. top speed was around 45mph. pretty neat.
