Glad to know it is not just me. I posted some pictures for Glossie yesterday and today they are gone? Went looking and everything I have posted using Photobucket is gone. Hope they get the problem fixed.

It was probably cached at your forum, I think photobucket and imgur.com are both having issues.

Did anyone get a good pic of my boat running down the river? I'd like to see how she rides under the full force of that beast of a motor.

Hi,

The closest you were to the river was on the last picture I took when you launched the boat.

Image

Unfortunately I did not have the camera with when you by yourself raced planing past us when we travelled on Johns Nor'easter. Maybe Fuzz took a picture he was also with. All the pictures I took you can see in my gallery under Any_other_pictures.

Greetings from Karl

Capeman sorry to say I do not have one. When Karl and I went on the boat ride with John we both went brain dead and left our cameras at the hotel. :roll:

Jacques was taking pictures from Topwater's boat when you guys were trying to keep up to Pattie and I as we zipped along at 9.5 miles per hour!

Yes, I took pictures with my phone but we were too far away and they are not worth posting.
That was with 2 persons onboard but still, the GPS showed close to 9 knots. Compensating for the current, I think the boat was going 7 knots (8+ mph) with 2 persons and a very small engine.
