    We will try to make it. Got to go buy new batteries and install them then make sure it is ready to run after putting everything back together.. Working on rudders right now. Have to pick up parts when I got get batteries.

    And Randy said he ran about 5 miles and had no ice. Probably clear all the way up.

    A few jetboats would be fun to run with if anyone is interested.

    BK, that water may be awful low, and maybe even some ice to slide over up there. Jet boats might not be up to the trip, might want to offer thosse in jet boats a free beer if they make it all the way. I had a guy with a phantom once tell me his boat would go anyplace a airboat could go. Really sorry I can't go, I think this was orgionally planned for today, Saturday, and i have it free, but a prior commitment in Anchorage for all day Sunday has me tied up. However, I will be out next week looking for blackies. Bud

    We were late, real late but still had a wonderful time and glad to meet such a great bunch of folks. Looking forward to more airboat gatherings of this kind. Maybe I can even get there on time. Thanks again to all for the invite.

    The water sure is a lot better in your pic than here on The Slope!
