It was actually on top of a Cornwell tool cart on a 34 degree day about this time last year:eek:

I will but there were more pressing issues on the boat at the time. Like the engine, gimbal ring, drive, full bottom respray, graphics, carpet, upholstery, stereo..... I had my hands full.

Shlbyntro, I am not worthy! My dumbass post was a tease meant toward Ultra thinking This was a Ultra made hatch at factory someone forgot to finish. (My bad, I’m idiot)
I had no idea of this boats history and the resto project Shlbyntro took on which was absolutely unfucking believable. Everyone should see this to appreciate it.
Shlbyntro, You’re the man. This Bud’s for you!!

Little more detail on the inflatable trip to Catalina.
I’m not sure that sounds like a ton of fun to me unless the inflatable is the tender. I made it almost past the jetty in my 19’ jet bote before it got scared and headed back to its trailer.

It’s definitely not the same as a 43’ on Havasu. Kinda why i was curious. Serious PFD’s and a big as chase boat could be an adventure

My buddy did all the time in his 20.5 Four Winns, but he left and headed home early in the morning. Big blue can kick you butt if she wants to.

Did the trip a few times in my dads 23’ Reinell. I used to think it was going to delam.

Run my wee lil fella (21'er) over all the time... Plan on being out of the channel by noonish, and you are golden. It is 40-45minutes cruising from Long Beach to Avalon. Have had a great few trips, early morning run over near 2 Harbors, snorkel for a few hours with my girls, run back and get lunch in Long Beach. 70 miles of boating, some awesome snorkeling, lots of seal lions, occasional Dolphins, and the knowledge that a rough day on Havasu really isn't that big of a deal!

Well little man has been asking to do more tubing and water sports.so what the kids want is what they get!
He tells me the other day dad the eliminator is fun but It only goes fast!
The eliminator isn’t very tube friendly!

Gonna be a big learning curve but can’t wait to see him and his cousins having the time of there life behind this thing!

Ahoy DRYHEAT, Vanning.com https://vanning.com/ Worldwide reach, but FB knocked it down hard over the years.

Wedgy on there too. Good Peeps great site for Van info. Lots of show and club info. Tame tho, compared to RDP. LOL.

RDP is Fast and Loose in comparison. For a Website to be as successful in the FB era as this is you know you're doing something right here RD.
Love yer Show.

My Nordic is a 2010 Heat with the 600SCI. We were fortunate to be on the water at Havasu and photographed by a helicopter there for Desert Storm a few years back.

My Houseboat is a 2002 Fantasy 16' X 70' 4Br, 2 Ba with twin MPI 5.0's and a 15KW generator. Home away from home.

We definitely love spending time at the lake...
