Lake Saint Clair to Mackinaw
Want to share my ride with you guys. 4 riders making a round trip in 4 days. Around 800 miles. We leave this Sunday. I'll post more later. I plan to document the details if some one ever wants to do it. If we make it.. We could use some good luck.

Wow, What a ride! 200 miles a day on Lake Huron is pretty ambitious if it gets rough. Hang on tight and have fun.

Trip was awesome. Skis are in the shop though. Hit some rough patches but they should be good as new by the weekend. Luck was not on our side weatherwise but no injuries so it could have been worse. We had two RXP's one stock one stage II. My P-X and one GTX LTD stage II. The stock RXP stripped the shaft from the impeller and lost his front bumper, the RXP stage II had nothing come off but had water in his oil, we assume sucked up through the supercharger. The GTX lost his right rub rail and plastic cover on his hood. I broke the metal bracket holding my hood down.
Here is a clip.

Dude, that looks brutal. How far did you make it before the white flag? No way in hell this 45 year old would make it in those conditions!

haha, we made it 150 miles before the shaft stripped off the impeller and after a rough time getting him out of the surf and into Port Austin we called it a day and got some beers If my 47 year old a** and do it yours could too. I trained for it so it wasn't that bad.
