    We launch at Marker 37 Marina in Corpus, ride in the ICW reaching Port Mansfield (75 miles) this is a well marked ride. At Port Mansfield we rest, eat and re-fuel .Then to South padre island (35 miles). We sleep at a motel (with dock facilities). I live in McAllen and know SPI very well, we can ride in the bay or in the ocean to jump some waves. Next day we go back. My Yamaha HO Cruiser will go all the way from Corpus to Port Mansfield on one tank, but we need to bring some extra gas just in "case". the ride is very smooth, we stop to rest (beach the waverunners) at the Land Cut . This is a nice Ride, no waves except for more or less 17 miles that may be a little rough(some times). We have to make sure that our machines are in good shape because if one fails then we have to towe anybody.

    You guys aren't afraid of the salt water? I keep getting lectured to keep our 250 out of the salt (by any means necessary). Thoughts?

    This does sound like fun, I would prefer it be during Spring Break.
