Well after waiting for 2 years for the marina to be rebuilt as a result of Hurrican Iven, I recieved the call yesterday that they were ready to have me come back for dry storage. I
wasted no time and decided to launch about 20 miles North of the marina so I could get the keel wet and do a shake down run. I had not put the boat in the water for 3 months and it was long overdue, I had put fresh batteries in her and after a quick stop at the gas station ( 105 gals, $285 dollars lighter) off I went, I was happy that I still had over 1/2 a tank of fuel to begin with. Bay was a little choppy as we had a South East wind blowing at 20knots but made the run doing around 35 high and dry.
All I can say is I really like my 26 Outrage, although I hated to have to trailer it, its a heavy boat so this weekend
its going to be nasty, offshore so I will put a coat of wax on her and get her ready for what I hope to be a great fishing summer.
