Heading out Thursday night to visit daughter and SOL. Looking forward to going out to eat, maybe get a couple drinks at Flying X. I see it may rain on Sat. is the indoor water park place open by the LBR? Kids would dig that I think.

Any car shows or events or whatever going on. Always seems like something is happening in Havasu every weekend. LOL

Is that indoor pool / slide / aquatic center worth taking the kids to if it's raining on Saturday? Anyone ever been?

Weather is now showing no rain until Monday. Gonna be cool temps (61) but not looking like rain so that'll be nice. Go blow some stuff up in the desert, hang out.

Bring the kids to construction camp. Lots of fun events happening, like:
- "how to hang drywall"
- "sweeping 101"
- "insulation and general itching / scratching"
and my personal favorite
- "where did that f*$cking tool go"

If you recall, I already pointed out we may cruise up and drink your beer and yell at you to hurry that shit up so we can get to using it.

We will be there. Doing Bunker Bar for lunch on Friday, then getting some new shades at I Love Sunglasses. Dinner out on Friday night with the kids, probably hit Jerseys up for a philly cheesesteak. Saturday we are doing Oatman and should be back in town by 3pm. No plans so far for Saturday night.

Never been to the Aquatic Center @Tank but have always wanted to check it out. Last time I looked, it is ONLY open on Saturdays so assume that it gets pretty crowded. Also not sure if you can roll a cooler in there or not...

Sounds like a solid plan. I'm quasi playing it all by ear. See what the boys want to do and what the daughter and SOL want to do. I know they want to go shooting at some point. We may have a bunch of other friends rollin into town too. Bunch of us at the beach Sunday and next thing I know, everyone wants to go to havasu with us to get out of Ca. LOL We'll see what happens. Might turn my Daughter and SOL's house into an RV park for the weekend.

is he doing that as an owner-builder? It seems to be taking forever.😎
Yeah it’s been a year and a half I believe. And I’m not 100% sure but I think maybe. Time for it to be done. This is the first time I saw it in person. Insane.

That looks great! I really like it on the bow. Very practical and seems to accent that big deck well!

Yeah. We’re REALLY happy the way it came out. SC Wake in havasu came out measured it and installed.

And I agree I was on the fence about running it down the bow because sometimes it looks a little out of place I think. But with the sunk portion of the deck it is sits below the rest of the deck and transitions well. Plus like you said, super user friendly. Gonna be good for the kids.

The bow looks awesome. We ordered the bow as well. I called yesterday and ours arrives next week. So it’s nice to see it turn out well for someone else. I haven’t seen it on boats much out in the wild.

well...I went anyway and it nice. Boat ran well. Even watched a little motocross racing while we were out chilling. Hit 60 at 3/4 throttle w/ 26 pitch Bravo. Magic Deck. Has an Ilmor 625. Planed Quick. Gotta find out if that’s a good prop to run.

All around Bravo 1 props are hard to beat. 26 is definitely in the ballpark, 496's are usually running 22's, sometimes 24's with no water sports.

Heard a rumor that someone had Thunder Cats.. Was hoping to get a smokin deal with the upcoming refresh. ;)
I’m sure you’ll get a hook up. We ran the 14’ model and there was 4 adults and two kids and we were comfy. Things roomy but light enough we just carried it down to the water and the. Picked it up and put it on the back for the frietliner no problem. We only had a 5HP on it but I think it’s rated to a 30! Shit would be a blast with some power behind it.

Let Our kids take it for a run by themselves and plane it out.

Looks great! Running it down the deck was a great idea. The deck on our gun was always sketchy to walk on if it had any moisture on it.
