We'll be there....seats are in...it's not pretty, but it'll work.  Made brackets so if it sinks they won't rip out this time
Angle down towards the bottom plate more on that lap joint, gettin pretty good!


Oh yeah already an hour in to the 4 hour drive. I'll be going to the rv park to look at a new spot for next year this afternoon. See y'all out there

the locals will probably kill me for posting this, but theres a 'locals only' ramp thats pretty damn public (ive never had a problem launching there).

if you head up the 95 out of parker and pass the bluewater, you will climb a little hill and at the bottom of that hill is a light which is Riverside drive. Theres a bar calls "the sand bar" on the right. Make a Left on Riverside. follow that down and you will see the ramp about 2/3 mile down on the left. theres a dirt lot across the street for parking.

-OR- you can launch over at the bluewater. They do charge to launch, but if you just launch and act like you own the place (its free for guests), they dont bother ya.  :thumbup:

Dont bother trying to launch off the beach at bluewater like we have in the past. they put all these steel canopys up along the beach and now charge an entry fee to just use the beach and the canopys are extra $$.  :sly:

I think I know where your talking about. Is'nt there a launch just down river from Roadrounner. I think it's a pay lot on Riverside.
I'm guessing not that safe for stuff in the back of the truck.
Anyhows unless anyones going Saturday morning, we'll be too late Friday anyways.

Heads up if anyone is going out of the Antelope Valley area and was gonna go thru 29 Palms. Dave informed me
that road is closed due to flash floods and what not. So we'll be going down the 15 ,215, 10, 177.  O0 

Yaaaaayyyyyy, it's frickin' river time bitches !!!!!!!!   ;D

Gordie, I'm sure you could find something in Havasu. maybe Nasfan24 or FSM Marine can give you a heads up
for a shop in Havasu or Parker. Not sure, just a shot in the dark. Chime in fella's.

We're leaving LA now.  Gord, we'll
Be headed to Parker in the AM..I can pick you up a set if need be.  Better yet, if the flanges are pretty flat, dump the gaskets and use hi temp copper RTV....they'll never leak again.

Well, that was a nice practice trip.  It only took 80 miles before we realized the trailer keys were in the other truck....in our driveway.   We'll try again in the morning.
