I splashed the MC for the first time in 2011. My wife and I took the boat down to Annapolis for lunch. It was about 70 degrees out and sunny, what a great day. Here are a few shots.

I need to put the wakeboard racks back on. The lighthouse looking building is the restaurant where we ate lunch. The last photo is a poor one of my neighborhood, but one of those is our home.

I'm jealous! At least you didn't have to chop away ice at that ramp like when you got your trailer!

What no Pusser's @ EGO alley? :D

Hey how is the Severn for wakeboarding? I have to try that sometime.

Nice shots, Brian! We got ours out for the first time last weekend. But we got out on the old 205 in March and early April. Good start to the season.

Thanks for all the comments guys. We had a nice time today and it was great to get out on the water!

The Severn is brackish.

We go to Pussers plenty and have painkillers. Great place!

The Severn is great. I'm at the head or the river so we have some nice flat water. Also, there are plenty of creeks, etc. Good all around place.

I burned up an impeller due to user error. After an hour of my messing with it on the lift, it ran like a top. Another lesson learned. I seem to overlook more when I do maintenance on the fly in between diaper changes. :o

That's what I hear.

The one time I ran my old boat in the Brazos, I brought it home and before putting it away, I dropped it into our local spring fed lake and ran it for 10 minutes while the trailer sat almost completely submerged at the ramp.

Just in case. :)

You're a little young to be needing diaper changes aren't you? I thought that didn't start untill about your 80-90's.:D:D

Bri, did you get a water temp? It seems pretty cold still. Itching to get out though. We need to get together to ski this summer.

According to my PerfectPass, the surface temperature was 60.8.

No such thing. :)

Actually, it was quicker than hooking it up to a hose.

Agreed it was quicker and probably less expensive.

Jeez, sorry to hear that! We're in the middle of a bad thunderstorm today. But, it is supposed to be 80 on Wednesday.
