Subject: We took her out!!

Well, we took the new "69" Sportsman out today & she worked like a dream. It
unloaded so smooth & easy it kinda brought a tear to my eye. Speaking of
eyes, there were a lot of people eyeballing our baby. She fired up and idled
as good as any new boat out there and better than most. As we slipped away
from the launch and out into the lake I gently persuaded her to pick up a
little more speed, which she did with very little effort. The little 155hp
V6 Just purred, & you could tell she wanted to stretch her legs, so away we
went. I gave her full throttle and she responded by setting us back in the
seats as she jumped up to a plane &topped out at about 4400 rpm (speedo not
working) I eased back on the throttle and let her settle down at about 3600
rpm & just cruised. My wife and I were both smiling as we cruised around for
about 3 hours in the 80 degree sunfilled glorious Pacific Northwest weather.
All good things must come to an end however & we needed to get home. We
pulled back into the launch area & loaded the boat without a hitch & went
home. My wife and I are so pleased with our purchase & can't wait to take
her out on a camping fishing trip (in about 2 weeks) :).
Well that's about it for now, but you can bet I will be letting you all know
how the fishing trip goes, maybe some action pictures will be in order. Bye
for now
