I hope to pull the Tahoe the first 260 miles next Thursday 9/5. Then do a cleanup. Might bring the canoe also (Have to work on the tie down.). They don't make trucks as friendly as they once did.

Last Wednesday, Nick tried out his new camera on an 80 mile run on the Ottawa River. Video quality is impressive. We hope be able to get some good footage of the boats again this year !

First time I've ever seen flat water for a whole day on that river.

Here's a still we pulled from the video. It looks like we are parked, but we are cruising at 40 MPH :

We still have to tune-up the Hot Rod, replace the wheel bearings on the trailer and finish rebuilding the truck camper's back wall and driver's side box wing ... :shock:

Reminds me to check tire pressure and grease the bearings!

Paul, that is an impressive run.
I know nick will get some good footage.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

Tough crowd in here tonight ... :wink:

I knew I couldn't let that photo fly without getting a comment !

That's my tether cord. Only problem is it isn't tied into the boat's ignition system yet :lol:
