Just went down to Baltimore and picked up a new boat - 1998 205! We left on Friday Morning from Ontario, stopped in Pittsburgh and caught the Pens/Canes game and continued on to Baltimore. Picked up the boat and came straight back - home Saturday night by 2 am. Took the boat out yesterday (75 deg air) and had a blast. <BR>Worst part of the entire trip: Took close to 100 pics of the entire weekend and proceeded to drop my camera in the lake...diving down this afternoon to see if I can salvage the memory card.

Congrats sick boat todd, next summer when im in owen sound you gots to take me out for a rip behind that bad boy!! and if you ever make it barrie way, your always welcome out on the mobius gravity games. I've also thought about towing it up to the sound and taking it out there, any good spots?? sucks about the camera, get divin before that water freezes}

congrats, get us some pics...

FOUND THE CAMERA! I couldn't believe it. My buddy has dive gear so he spent about 1/2 hour where we thought we had lost it and said it was pure luck he saw it thru all the mud and weeds. Now if I can salvage the pics it will be great. <BR> <BR>Andrew, you can definately have a pull anytime, we always like to take different people out.

Awesome. We found our ~$600 houseboat anchor last Friday in about 65' of water. It's a great feeling.

next time ur in BC my Von Zippers are in 35 feet of water off a point in Kalamalka Lake,,,any takers to dive down and get them???? I really miss them!

Congrats on getting a nice boat and great to hear about finding what is left of the camera. I remember picking my boat up last year left at 4am back home about 10-11pm definately a long day exciting day.

I could use a bit of help as well. Lost my favorite Von Zippers in about 10' of water. It sucks losing things to the lake gods.

I want to hear if the mem card still works though. Keep us updated.

congrats todd!......wow thats quite the trip......I had enough going to detroit and back in one day. At least you got to see a game ...nice way to break it up. Well the trip was well worth it i'm sure. the selection and price of boats in the Usa are unmatched by anything we have up here......enjoy! <BR>hopefully we get to see some pics!
