And people say you can't make it to the dam with less than 100k in a boat.....

If you want to go to the dam just remember if your in a small boat be sure to order some spray on Balls of Steel so the run go's great. :Drink:

I have the entire run on old vhs tape as well as several other old runs, could likely get them copied to disc if somebody wants. very grainy as it was a copy from old 8mm home movies.

I have a feeling the leaning trick wouldn't work with most of our boats. :Laugh1:
