    I'm sure the marine police will like that name. Will you waving to them with a beer in your hand?

    Sweet boat - how fast?

    Aaron - good point about the spring line! I don't think it was originally a spring like, the boat just moved up. You are giving too much credit with that assumption. :)

    Actually I know all the guys on the marine patrol and the USCG on our river so no worries. As far as a beer in my hand while waving....well let's just say I perfer rum & coke :thumbsup:. However there are a few prudes that don't like the name:smt089 If they want to make my monthly stroke they can name it whatever they want. I had my Pachanga 22 for 5 years with the same name all over Michigan and never had one issue with Johnny law, after all it's just a name and I'm a very experienced boater. If you aren't doing dumb things you wont have to worry about any trouble.

    Wow I didn't know I would get grilled by the sea scouts about using just my spring line. That pic was taken on November 12th 2008. I just bought the boat and got lucky enough to get a 70 degree day so I unwinterized her and got to go for a quick ride before I put her away in the barn. That was the only line on the boat. I promise next season I will have a bow and stern line. Gee whiz :wink:

    That's a pretty good looking boat. I wish I would have known about them when i was looking for mine.


    What the hell river is up your way? Is it worthy of a weekend trek from the pontiac area?

    We are on the Saginaw River which takes you to the Saginaw Bay (Lake Huron). Hell ya it's worth the trip up. Let me know sometime we will show you around there is 100 boats + at the state park on any given weekend. Lot's of fun and the law is very cool.:thumbsup:
