    Last ride of the season

    Welp, we decided to go out one last time this past weekend. It was a cold new jersey day: air 31, water 41. of course we were the only crazy people out there, infact i dont think i saw any other docks/boats in the water. there was 2 or 3 cars at the ramp when we launched.they must have called thier friends cause there was like 10 or 15 cars there when we got back in. after we warmed up, we washed em, and took em down to the dealer for 50 hour service, winterizing, and vortech sc impeller install. hopefully we'll be back riding in late march/early april. heres a few pics..

    That is the best time to ride. No one else around to bother you.
    I have had some great rides this time of year and in the spring when it is cold.

    1.5hrs labor at $85 and hour. either they have a different rate for winter or they raised it cause in the summer i think it was 65 or 70 and hour.

    Boataddict - I agree. Absolutely the best time. I was out yesterday. Ran 77.2 @ 8100-8150 rpm. 76+ all day. Glass!

    Mike - This past Sunday was a blast. (Not winterizing yet.) I need a few more weeks to see if the GPR can run down the RXP!!! Any volunteers to co-pilot;

    40 degrees!
