Please don't get me wrong. I do enjoy the potluck get togethers. And we definitely need to explore more on the first time. I do have a Garmin Colorado GPS with US inland lakes and waterways depicting depths should we get stuck in the dark. The lunch runs would be the best with evening dinner get togethers in various areas of the resort.

Do we have the pavilion reserved exclusively for us on at least one night?

the main pavillion is reserved for FRi & Sat
thurs pavillion I would have to double check.
BTW, is Neel hosting the big house thurs?

........my own suggestion is to do the Amigo's mexican run a bit earlier start time, and then explore some other joints on the return run.

3 other eats places could be seen on the return run

.........geez, if we found a 5th marina we could have a full-on Poker Run !!!!!!!!
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:

Yes.. Craig and I will be hosting a "Spaghetti Dinner" at the Big House on Thursday evening. We had 56 people at G-13, so shooting for at least 75 at G-15.

This would be a great venue for a poker run.

It’s only 240 horse, I’m guessing 42 mph will be the top.

Maybe 45 MPH. I get 38 from the Tahoe with 115HP. It's not a straight line on the power speed curve.

The poker run sounds like a great idea and we could have the places we stop promote it so we might bring in outside interest to wooden boat building.

Matt, it's going to be able go quite a bit faster than 42. Let's go ahead and start a betting pool on the top speed. I'll take 52 mph.

To top out at 42 it would have to weigh over 4000 lbs. Not a chance in a 19 foot boat. You might be able to CRUISE at 42mph. I bet it hits 50.
