It's a pretty fun ride through the city. You can stop at Dicks last resort and grab some food. And couple other places too.

We do go through the lock and hit the lake. But if the chop is too bad you might not want to take the wife out. It can be very choppy. Idle speed impossible. Either stop or keep the bow up. Lol.

But I know you want this photo

I would. My bow is almost same as yours. You can handle it. Just stay in my wake

It's not that bad. Just push your way to your anchor spot and stop. Then your boat just floats with the chop.

Yeah I'm thinking I would avoid the lake. Although I do have a friend with a 196 that goes out on the big lake. If I ever did go out the wife would not come. Heck I doubt I could get her through the locks

The lock is so quick it's over before you know it.

And there is no reason you can't. I'm just saying if it's really bad. I've been out there when we were clearing the next wave in the air. It was pretty intense. But my wife and other girls go out it's no big deal.

A prostar could handle it. I see 16ft fishing boats out there.

I have heard of it but with only two seasons with the mc my schedule hasn't been able to line up with it.

Just ordered the 3 Johnson pumps I need for the ballast.

We also send in the SeaDek mylars for a quote.

Next is Ballast Bags. I have to get the bags with 2 drains right?
