    Pictures of 670mile North Atlantic trip

    Attached below are a few of the pictures from a 670 mile trip I just completed with 3 other people. We travelled from Goose Bay, Labrador to Point Leamington, Newfoundland. The coast of Labrador is very isolated with many small communities that have no road access and only have ferry service that travels up and down the coast. There were 2 ultra 250X's including mine and 2 yammi's. Unfortunalely the other guy on the 250X had a bearing seize in the supercharger pully which shredded the belt and damaged the pulley. He had to get lifted on the ferry in Rigolet 110 miles into the journey. The other two guys went to Main Brook which is on the northern tip of Newfoundland. I travelled from there to Point Leamington myself (170 miles). It got really bad near the end with 7-8 foot waves, fog, and a thunder & lightning storm. I was offshore between 10-20 miles for a lot of the trip and put 23 hours on the machine. It was an excellent adventure!!

    Put my truck and trailer on the ferry when I left in Goose Bay which runs straight down to Lewisporte in Newfoundland. Picked up the truck when I got there and then drove back home through New Brunswick and Quebec.

    We left on Saturday afternoon and I arrived on Wed afternoon. The ferry left Tuesday and arrived Thursday. We were travelling between 6-8 hours per day while the ferry travels around the clock with only 2 stops.

    We averaged 30MPH for the entire trip. I was down to about 10-15 MPH near then end due to the weather and rough seas.
