This run do able in a 23 Ultra ? Have had skis up close to Katherine’s with a group but never had the boat up there.
Yes I've ran it in my 21 open bow jet and I do it now in a 23 essexs.

People run all different speeds. Had a pontoon run it 2 years ago.

We start at 9 from Kathrines. Stop at cottonwood, leave there around 10.
Stop at Willow. And then run to the Dam. I’m usually between 45-55 mph. A lot of faster and slower boats. We all regroup at the stops.

It would be cool if Austin could do pictures again. I can shoot him a text and see what he says. There was some cool shot last year I got a bunch framed up for the lake house. I got this one for rob

I’m looking forward to maybe a “Hoover to Big Sandy Run” this year?
I think there are enough Mead boaters on here to make that a fun run.
I'm in, never been to Mead

We are in on this run.. I can't think of anything that would conflict on that date.

I would also very much like to do an RDP meetup on Lake Mead! I have some resources out there that I think you guys would love.

Sounds like we will be in this year.
We will team up with @BUDMAN and run our 24’ Chaparral.
We will be in the slower to midlan group for speed (40mph average) and will be able to knock down some water for some of the smaller boats if need be.
Looking forward to it!!

Sounds great but what did you do for food, dinners specifically? Last time I was there the restaurant was closed and we did not like was the dinner.
We are planning to bring a grill with us. Probably burgers and dogs on Friday. Tacos on Saturday. That’s our plan as of right now

Did the run several years ago with the group. Cool ride and scenery. Spent some time on the lake last June and made the run again... LOTS of paddle boarders and kayaks between Willow Beach and Hoover...

SUPER NICE!!= Blow it up a bit and frame that for your Son maybe wait to give it to him on his HS Graduation. I have one kind of like that in my Bedroom and do stop and look at it often and think how carfree life was then.

5* :cool:
Good idea!

These Guys are looking for the White Caps too. Watch out for the other Guy.

They don't stay in the little box. So glad my little old boat is slow.

Oh no. I'm a S.L.O.B.

Yep, I have two rooms.
Did you call back to get the discount?
My wife called and confirmed that if you call back after having already booked that they will apply the discount for you.

Last year was my first, seemed there was a group running 50-60 and then a second group running 40-50.
Aerial shots would be bitchin. I wonder what that costs
With that new plane and endorsement, he can just land at each meet point.

So is the 08/08/20 set in stone? If so i may have to look into getting a room as well. Make it a little more fun even if i only live 35 minutes away.

I'll launch with you at Cottonwood! If its windy, it will be a great day to test my new marriage!
I'll have to top off at Willow Beach to make it back...or to make it there?

Called Katherines Landing yesterday. We have 8 rooms booked right now, that is including @Racer56 and @Racer89 ‘s 5 rooms. My neighbor should be reserving one, that means we will need just 1 more to get our 25% discount.
It’s still very early.
