Wow your cukes are way ahead of us - we just picked our first one today! Looks like your entire garden is ahead of us! Must be all that hot air flowing out of Boston. :lol: ;)

I made a deal with the old man. New aquastat and timer on his boiler...I got a day on the lake in the Formula. :)

Last year's gas is officially gone...we launched at the Point Au Roche State Park, idled out by the Cumberland Head Ferry, headed over to Vt and spied on the lake houses, stopped for a swim, got out in the channel and blasted up to Rouses Point...cruised under the bridge and around Fort Montgomery, got flagged down by the border patrol for suspicion of being "dope haulers" :lol: (nice guy, just doing his job), and finally cruised back home at 35 mph. I only pushed it once...some idiot on a Sea-Doo was bugging us out in the "big water" so I decided to put some distance between us. 62 mph on the GPS...I think it burned as much gas during those 2 minutes as it did the rest of the day. :shock:

It was a great day to be on the lake.
