Hey guys,
Just got back from a great weekend seeing a totally different side of boating, and thought I would share a few pics of these beautiful boats. These pics are from my phone, I have a few more on the camera I can upload someday.

I definitely agree. It was tough to come back to this dreary weather in San Diego.

We were monitoring channel 16, and seatow was having a hayday! I guess they get $250/per tow if you aren't a member.

I believe it is $250 just for them to show up and then it is a nice hourly rate from there on...

It's like Cameron the Barbarian!!

Cameron, what is best in life?

In my best schwarzenegger voice.

To see fast boats, have them driven in before you and hearing the lamentation of their engines!! All while on a sun filled day!! :D

Man I sometimes miss that place.

I remember going down there one year for spring break. Obviously being spring break time the water patrol was in full force keeping people safe out there. The group I was with rented a pontoon boat for a few days to take out to copper canyon, and we got pulled over every single day to check for a sober driver. We were responsible and had a sober guy each of the days, but man were those cops a bunch of jerks. One day they pulled us over and made us shut the boat down, they did their little check to make sure our driver was sober (which he was) and eventually sent us on our way. When we went to start the boat, the battery wouldn't turn it over. We asked the cops for a jump (since afterall they did make us shut the boat down and we were completely legal in what we were doing), but they just told us to call seatow. So we call seatow and they wanted $175 to come out and jump us. Yeah... no thanks. We eventually found someone to give us a boost, but couldn't the cop have taken another 2 minutes and given us a boost? I still have a sour taste in my mouth about that...

Protect and SERVE my a$$..

Lake patrol was definitely out in full force.

Here's a video of an awesome boat out there:

I'd love to have a boat like that-- for a couple of weekends. After that, all I can see is massive dollars being spent. A friend just got his 31 Warlock finished, first time out today, It ran 90 with a pair of 520" N/A motors bumping the rev limiters. He needs more prop. Another buddy is finishing up his 33 Eliminator- it ran 128 with 710 Illmores, but now has a pair of Pfaff 1250s. He's got stupid money in it. I'm not sure if I could spend that much on a boat, even if I could afford it.

When you say he just got his Warlock finished, are you saying an upgrade to it?

The reason I ask is I had a friend that worked at Warlock and was told they went under a while back.

It's an older boat, I'm gussing late 90's. It does have a stepped bottom. He bought it without power, and a really bad paint job. It's solid white now, new interior, engines, drives. Went way over buget, but turned out nice.
