    thanks guys,

    Parnell, you've got eagle eyes... I had a lower pitch alu prop on the last ride cause I ruined my Mirage SS a week before, so the boat really jumped on plane and accelerated like hell...yeah, it was fun !!

    I gave you a "thumbs up" on YouTube. Thanks for not dubbing Lady Gaga over it. It looks like you have it down pat how to drive it. I just winterized mine this week.

    Usually I wait a couple more weeks but I have a lot going on now and this was a good week to get it done. I checked drive alignment and did some other maintenance. Washed and waxed it too. In 5 months I am ready to hook up a few hoses and put in a few plastic plugs and am ready to go! It was a good summer for me and I didn't break anything! See you in the spring.

    aah, sailboaters... they hate me and I hate them, I always get them wet when I see them

    Yep, also winterized now, although the weather stays quite warm and dry at the moment. Rode the GT 6 times this season and ruined a prop and a trimcylinder, wouldn't call it a good season....

    Parnell, keep having fun with your GT and Carl, thanks for the compliments...

    Axel~
    Sorry you were not able to get your GT21 out on the water more than just six times last season.
    Many folks here on the US east coast were rained-out for most of the summer weekends.

    As for me~~~

    Your boat looks and sounds good, Axel.

    Lots of fun being had. And it will be something you can watch to get you through the long winter months.

    Thanks for posting it for the rest of us to enjoy.

    Axel, great post and nice to see the last run. We had our share of bad conditions here as well including snow last weekend with a lot of damage!

    Carl, not breaking anything is very good.

    Yup yup! I did a lot of hard running on big water too. I got underneath with a bright light to look for any signs of cracks and there are none. I think the hull has been repaired and reinforced sufficiently. Come on April!
