    It’s on the lift. Took a quick cruise with some family in town.

    Looks great Andy. Must have been weird to go straight for miles after the small lake. I grew up on a small lake so I know what that is like.

    Yeah that was a little weird for sure! That and the massive waves from the big boats! The wife got a little nervous in one spot. It was nice getting back on the water though.

    Awesome!! I'm certain that several of us are sooo jealous!! How did the Benny hand the big waves and wakes? Im sure just fine. We have many boats on our lake that SHOULD be in the ocean!! We're talking 40 and 50 foot cruisers on an inland lake!?! Its ridiculous, but fortunately our Q25 handles the wakes just fine!

    Overall I was impressed with how t handled. We were the only “pontoon” out there. The rest were big center counsels and even a 60’. I kept a lot of distance from that guy. Next time out we’ll head more inland in calmer water.

    I think I'd be most nervous about finding my way back on that big water. Bet your tri-toon handled it quite well. Andy, glad to see you're out of the apartment and into that beautiful new home of your's. The lift looks great but will you miss having her covered?

    The biggest challenge is learning how to navigate the area, where all the markers are, shallow areas etc. Yeah the house is much better than apartment life. We already reached out to a guy who sells canopy systems for this style lift. I'm actually going to get some measurements tonight and send him back for a quote. The boat was rained on Saturday and the cover kept it dry inside. I'm more worried about the brutal sun killing it. I'm thinking we'll add one here in the near future.

    I can imagine that learning to navigate the inner-coastal will take some time so be careful. Knowing how you take care of stuff, covering your lift will be essential to your mental health.

    I worried about that before we took our first trip to a very large lake. I simply set my Google map starting point, and when we got ready to go back to our cabin, I’d just make the map large enough to see my point of return, then navigate through all of the curves and coves. I’m very comfortable now. I also used my “map my ride” software used when I ride my bike. It charts your path, so all you have to do is follow your route back. I’ve used that especially if we took the boat to dinner on one of those tricky lakes and knew we’d be after dark getting in. Example of one of those lakes.
