Maiden Voyage 2014 on Lake Belton
Apr 12th, 2014 at 7:50pm
 
Hey hey, so I finally got a chance to run the ole girl today. Was a bit windy, but fun none the less. I was the lone power boat out of course. Only 12 million fishing boats. One of the silly little guys tried playing with my HO in the chop lol. Anyways... The only vid I took worth a damn was the bow shot, so here is a few minutes of fun.

Thanks for watching.

It is a beautiful lake for sure. But with all bodies of water herenin Texas,  she is taking a beating.  Very excited for this weekend. I may be fairly full with 5 people. More to chip in on gas lol.
