Seeing how many 21' are running? Want to stick with some people that are running our speed and handle the chop if any we hit. Want to enjoy the scenery and not try to keep up with the 100 mph boats...
Mine is a 21' semi-V, I have my big prop on so I can keep the RPMs down and cruise 50-55 mph and not burn too much fuel. I figure that should keep me well in front of any roll bar boats and pontoons.

Driving from Bullhead to Cottonwood. The lake is a lake. The river up there is amazing👍🏻

Well that first section was run at a pretty impressive clip. We set the cruise at 50 and lost sight of the pack in about 10 minutes. Hope Sea Tow stays in the marina. Our first Damn Dam run so finishing is the goal.

Awesome. The next portion is the best. Once you clear to the basins and start into the canyon it's awesome.

Anyone that’s never been to the hot springs just shy of the dam on the right should do it. Boat parking is limited.
Limited is putting it mildly. Last time I went in there with my 210 there were a couple of big boulders just in front of the small entrance so I had to come into it from below the current. Wasn't a pleasant feeling but the water is so clear it is probably deeper that it looks. BTY it is on the left when headed up river, correct?
Also about a half mile or so below the damn is where they reconstructed some of the canyon walkways that the works on the NV side used to cross the river to get to work on the AZ side. Small cove there as well thats a good place to stop and have a beer.

Going to the hot springs.

No Joker should be sorry, because he didn’t get to meet you. 😉 Love the music in your wife’s video on the facebooks
Threw out a pic of you and family in your new float a few posts back. It’s a beauty and I’d keep the 525 in it. 🙂

Your drone videos were great. Thank you
Waiting to see what all she got on the camera, we tried passing then slowing a few times but seemed to be the same group each time.
Sad we didn’t have more stops to be able to regroup and get more pics like last year.
She won’t let me look till she goes through them all 🤷🏼 She’s weird like that lol.
