Hi everybody.

I am new to this board, and thought this would be a good place to start and introduce myself.

Breif overview:
I live in northern Wisconsin and I like to play with and run fast boats.

1985 Baja 1700 sunsport, 150 merc 2.0 V6-65MPH (speedo) @5900RPM 25" Merc Tempest

1978 Checkmate V-mateI, Merc 115-Inlne, recently aquired w/ no guages. It should really haul the mail with the right set up------next spring. (can you say 150XS)

Year unknown- 12' Elimnator Daytona (layed up in the Shawno Plant) Merc Mark 58 (44 CID) - not enough seat time to determine capabilities-- would think mid 50's with the right prop.

1980 Glastron Carlson CVX 20 Intiminator (260 I/0) --I Just use it as the lake cruiser cause it sounds cool - However it will run over 65MPH, not bad for an old Carlson---in my opinion.

Girlfreind's Boat: '76 Carlson (restored) w/ Merc 1000 (classic setup)- lots - O - Fun.

Anyway, thats it in a nutshell. Thanks for all the great info on this board.

Looking forward to being a member!

Balzy, Thanks for the invite, sounds like a blast, however I've got a previous commitment for the weekend.

Keep me in mind whenever you gather in that area. I try get there 2 or 3 times a summer, and 4 or 5 time a winter, usually stay at the Chanticler.

My place is about 60 miles east of Eagle River on Hyw 70 (it's the Spead Eagle Chain of Lakes near Florence WI)

Thanx again for the invite
