    So I am just throwing this out there... There seems to be a lot of us on the site from St Clair and Erie... I am thinking maybe a RENDEZVOUS is in order. What do you guys think...?....and I am also talking about the captains sitting on the side lines... I have a feeling there is a lot of us. We might be late this year to pull something off.... But I bet we could figure something out.... For the inaugural RENDEZVOUS ?......what do you guys think?

    I think that's a great idea. I would like to meet everyone and learn more about the hidden gems of the lake that others know and share things I know. Are you thinking a raftoff in a certain bay or at a restaurant or something. I think a good place would be Metro. Maybe meet up and get a slip for the night and get to know everyone. Great idea Blueone.

    Easy
    Can you do me a favor? Next time you're in your engine room, look at your genny and let me know if you have a loop in your water line hose that connects to the exhaust elbow. Mine is have assed and connects without the loop causing water to get into the engin.
    Sorry for the off topic question.
    Thanks

    20180721_095702.jpg 20180721_100051.jpg midexp I don't see any loops in the hoses, but when I was in the engine room I didn't remember you were asking about the hose that went to the exhaust. If these pictures don't help let me know and I'll check again. Sorry. Back to the subject. So far it only looks like 3 of us, which I think would still be fun. Let's start throwing out some dates and places and see what works. I have a wedding September 7th.

    I was in metro beach last weekend for the first time over night and it was pretty good. If you guys want to schedule something in September that would work.

    I like that idea. The 15th/16th or the 22nd/23rd works the best for me. I'm out of town for work the 25th through the 28th. We have time so lets see if everyone else is interested and maybe 2nd or 3rd week of August I can call Metro and see if we can get a few slips next to each other. The back bay of Metro I don't believe has 50amp service so I'll check on the front bay by the bathrooms. Looking forward to meeting you guys.

    Thanks Eazy. Your water hose is done wrong like mine. Have you ever found water in your oil? And I'm up for meeting at Metro..

    You mean you check your oil?:D Just kidding...No I have never notice water in the oil, but I have not changed the oil in it yet either. It was changed when I got it and I have only put about 10 hours on it. I will be doing oil and impeller next spring (2019).
    Which weekend would be best for you?

    That date works for me gentlemen!

    I’ll be at metro in a couple weeks but we stay at the second cove.

    Also, my kids will be with us but they’re good kids. They’re used to the wife and I partying on the boat, lol

    Do you know if they have 50 amp service in the back cove? Seems like I remember them only having 30 amp back there when we stayed there in our 310.
