After 2 weekends cut short of mishaps, this was our first great trip with our new to us bote.
Probably 120 miles over 2 days from Needles to Topock to Bullhead and 8 different beaches including a friend's waterfront. We couldn't be happier right now. A great Mother's day gift for my wife too

Congratulations on the boat, I love seeing young families enjoying good times on the river. That was me and my wife with our kids back in the 80's. We started going when we were kids in 1972 then raised our kids on the river and Havasu. Now our kids are raising their kids the same way at the same places.

Doesn't get any better than that (well if you exclude the truck issue). Nice work getting the boat back on the water, looks like the fam had a blast.

I'm hoping to do the same for my kids.

Yeah and a BIG thanks to @boatdoc55 for his fine work on the ole VP drive unit!!!! You made this trip happen Gary, thank you!!!!
You're very welcome! Have to keep my old Volvo's going forward!! Still after all these years, the best drive ever built. There's a reason everybody copied them.

That’s awesome man! There’s nothing better than making good memories with the wife and kids. I just got a boat and will be doing the same this summer with my family.

It's the simple pleasures that are soooo important to growing families (all families really).

Thanks Mike. We need to get your open bow cruiser in the water and take a drive.
I just sent you a pm with my number. I'd love to get together and do a run. I'm mostly in Havasu and have Sunday thru Tuesdays off.
