Check out OUR new boat

Recommended Posts

RiverRunner

After a fair share of problems that one might expect with living in Houston and buying a boat in California Kevin and I finally worked out all the details and planned to meet last Friday in El Paso, Texas. My wife, son, his girlfriend and I left Houston late Thursday afternoon and headed to a relatives house in San Antonio, about a two and a half hour drive. That night the wife and I were lying in bed like two kids waiting on Christmas morning to arrive. We were only able to get about four hours of sleep before we woke up and started our (560 plus mile each way) trip to El Paso, Texas to pick up OUR new boat, a 2004 Wakesetter 23 LSV. To make a long boring trip short we made it to El Paso about an hour before Kevin and stopped at Barnett Harley-Davidson the world’s largest HD dealership to wait for him. Well time went by slow a couple of t-shirts, a look around the dealership later Kevin and the boat were finally in sight. I thought my wife was going to start jumping up and down she was so excited, guess I am one of those lucky guys that has a CFO that likes boating as much if not more than me. We visited with Kevin for awhile hitched the boat to the truck and headed back to San Antonio, we pulled into the driveway at 1:30am looking like zombies. The next morning we headed back to Houston, gave the boat a good cleaning so we could head to the lake New Years Day.

Awesome boat. Welcome to the LSV family. You'll love that ride. You'll also love the Extreme trailer. I've simply loved mine.

I do love the Extreme trailer coming back from the lake on the 1st traffic came to a quick stop, I hit the brakes hard and it almost felt like the disc brakes on the trailer were the ones slowing both the truck and boat down, I have a lot more confidence towing the bigger boat now.

That's just not right. 81 degrees. We were in Florida last week and appreciated the 64 degree water there.

Congrats on the fine looking boat.

My thoughts exactly. Flip that picture upside down and it would be like our weather.

OK...I will tell the secret of 81 degree water in Jan. we were at Lake Fayette County which is a power plant lake. The main body of the lake was around 72 is was 81 near the outlet. We went to Lake Conroe on the 2nd and it was 80 air temp and 64 water temp, I figured the water temp would of been in the mid 50's but, was pleasently surprised with mid 60's. Greenhead met us at Conroe and his boat had the same water and air temp., come to Texas for winter water fun.
