    Baltimore

    I have an inboard mercruiser. I want to put my boat in the mid Chesapeake area around Baltimore and or the Kent Island area. Would this hurt the block and drive with the brackish water. If I did this would a really good flush after using it do the trick to clean it out. Thanks in advance for the advice.

    Torch Lake

    It’s a bummer. We where really looking forward to this trip. We will try for late next year. Summer just now sprung in the Midwest. Anytime below 70 is uncomfortable to me so 52 was out of the question.

    Torch Lake

    Well unfortunately we are postponing our trip to Torch. Was really hoping the water temperature would come up but the trip is in 3 weeks and the water temp is 52 degrees. Soooo we are heading south to warmer water. We will plan a Torch trip for next year in August.

    Fresh water guy looking to the Bahamas??

    Thanks TP. The risk assessment would be definitely high. Like the idea of a plan B. I also like the idea of going over for the first time with a group. Thanks for your reply and insight.

    Torch Lake

    Thanks for the info. We have a small group of us going. Staying by the sandbar. Good thinking on the clothes. I can believe it gets a little chilly at night. Thanks again.

    Torch Lake

    Well we usually go to Lake Cumberland every summer for either a week or a long weekend. Well this year we are changing it up a little. Us and a group of friends are heading to Torch for a long weekend in July. We have never been to this lake. Has anyone been? Anything we need to check out other then the “sandbar”? We are staying on the south shore of the lake. Thanks for the info fellow boaters!! Here is to an awesome boating season!!!!

    Fresh water guy looking to the Bahamas??

    Hey Guys. After ready the post last year about the Bahamas Fling and really wanting to join in, it had me thinking. I see so many people doing trips to the Bahamas on boats around my size. (21ft open bow Chap). They seem to be jet boats, outboards or cruisers however. I have a little time on my hands for next year and thought it would be a blast to go over on my boat. I know about being mindful of the weather and wave forecast and customs etc. I guess what I’m asking is..is this possible and worth it. Just seems like an epic trip to do. Thanks in advance

    Bought a second home

    Well we have just spent the last three weeks at our home and now headed back to IL. We did bring our new to is SeaDoo. It was a disaster. We bought it from a dealer and did a checkout on it. My son was riding and within 45 mins the thing filled with water and almost sank. Got it fixed and cleaned the salt water out. Fixing dealer said there where hoses not attached and the selling dealer should have noticed that right away. The dealer I bought it from said basically sorry about your luck. 1K repair bill later. Put such a bad tast in our mouth we are selling and going to just stoke with our trusty little Chap. Anyways the weather was perfect and was awesome to spend the holidays with my family and parents at the house. Heres to a great 19 boating season everyone.

    Painted trailer and salt water

    Denny. That’s an awesome idea. Never thought to do that. I also like the idea of having it forklifted of the trailer and put in the water. A friend also though to fine a freshwater lake a splash the trailer and boat in that. These have really peaked my interest to bring our boat on holiday with us.

    Painted trailer and salt water

    Thanks Hatem. You are right that things won’t be mint forever. I like your way of thinking on this to get the most out of the boat.
