    What a beauty! Photos to follow as soon as I clean up the drool marks.

    We immediately put the requisite two hour break-in on the Hobbs meter and opened her up.

    Very pleased to have jumped to 5800 RPMs, 28 MPH (two pax, full fuel, calm water). That is more than we'll be routinely be needing.

    Pontoon (not tri-, 90 Yamaha).

    Great dealer experience with Apopka Marine in Inverness Florida.

    Cold snap here in the Orlando area. Only going to 80 today. What am I to do?

    You should have said something earlier, we just came back from a week vacation there. I would have helped you break er in. ;)

    What are “long johns”... some Yankee thing? We don’t even wear socks down here!

    Funny you mention that! I was watching a you tube video this weekend of a couple fishing off Stuart fl and they were in winter coats because it was in the 60's!!

    They didn't want to get sunburned. We were out this past Saturday. It was calm, clear, and about 72*. Talk about taking a nap. I even dreamed about being on a boat. Is that being consumed?
