How was the Melbourne run?

Post by Waterthunder »

So guy’s how was the Melbourne run? I haven’t heard much about it did ya guy’s run anything north of 192 or just south. The Melbourne area is pretty diverse with lot’s of different types of running. So Basketcase and Country how did ya like it. I wish I made it but once again I was stuck in the shop all weekend. You should see the boat this motor is going on WOW it maybe the best looking and detailed airboat I have ever seen and what’s cool is it’s a real 13ft ride boat. Gator skin seats polished hull with a Chameleon powder coated deck that changes colors. It’s a beautiful boat and I’m sure she is going to be a beast. We put a big ole stick on the back of it and she should Thunder.

All three boats have my LS1’s on them ones a 550HP and the other is a 600plus HP and mine well mine is bone stock with an RV cam HE-HE-HE. One hull is awesome homemade riveted 16ft hull the other is a sweat Hammant hull both are deck overs. I have told them all about you Country.

Yeah, you were missed WaterThunder. I was looking forward to meeting you. Next time.

Here is what you missed, boats as far as you can see, and this was not even HALF the boats out that day!

Check out the photo & wallpaper section. There are over 100 photos of the day.

Cntry, I saw you taking video of Laura & I running across Lake Sawgrass. I tooted the train horn and shot a thumbs up. If you have any way to get me a copy, I'd love to share that with some of my family! PM me if you need to get an address or something. That is a cool little camera you have there!

Hey Dave, it is Charity. WE went North with Basket and Passtime on Sunday. We went to the Oak head and we left from Sarno. We were going to stop by your house on the way beack but it started raining. We got the boats loaded just in time. We thought about that 3am drive by but not sure how the neighbors would take it. LOL

It was a real nice run! Thanks to Passtime for letting me ride with him and Chris - I hope you both find everything (and more importantly, everyone) OK when you get back home.

I put some of my photos on the gallery, too. Anyone who wants a higher-resolution copy of a photo just let me know which one you want and where to email it.

If anyone wants a souvenir of the day, I made up a mug with a photo of boats lined up at bulldozer. http://www.cafepress.com/marshbunny/600944

The photo doesn't show up so well on the giftshop page, so here it is:
