New to the forum but no newb!!!
Jun 4th, 2014 at 5:38pm
 
Just wanted to take a few to introduce myself. Name is Chris I'm new to the forum but not to boating. I've been boating for about 12 years now 3 1/2 of them have been on Travis. Come along way vessel wise started off on a 70's 16' silver line with a 90hp merc outboard, upgraded from that to a 1988 wellcraft 192 classic with 3.7L merc and alpha, from there to a 1997 Baja Hammer 21' 454mpi and bravo 1 ( which recently sold to my zo6), and I went memorial weekend to pick up the new rig 2001 Nordic 28' Heat with 500efi blue motor and bravo xr. I love the new addition only have had out once so far but stayed the night at point venture beach. Looking forward to meeting you guys and gals, having a few cold ones, and participating in some poker/fun runs!

Cheers, Chris

I saw you out running the other day she was looking good.

Yeah it seems the Nordic guys are swarming this place. I think they've edged out the Fountain guys. The next spring run is going to be a ABF/Nordic run Smiley

Lol so far everyone I've met out here has no idea what a Nordic is... Jay Gadsby I'm the guy that called you about a month ago asking if you still had yours for sale. I was in the market for a Sunny or Nordic and this one was a screaming deal other than the 49 hour straight round trip.

Ahhhh, didn't put two and two together lol. Glad you found a good deal. As you will see, you won't want to let her go now that you got her. Do you slip on Travis? Or trailer. A couple other Nordic guys are talking about a camping trip end of July, not sure what lake though. Sad thing is, we will be the slow guys haha.
