I was there with the family yesterday and there were only 4 other boat trailers at the marina.  We had the lake totally to ourselves.  I don't get it, doesn't anyone else go to the lake on a holiday?  Water is definately getting chilly but it just means don't fall off the ski LOL.

I'm pretty sure I can make it out there next Sunday too.  Hope to see all you guys then. I always use the Elsinore Marina across from the high school and then usually end up in the cove at the opposite end.  Good luck Brad get those wrenches turning.

My boats big and heavy, BUT it has a jet... I'm in!  I tried to get out this weekend with the sun finally peeking out, but didn't.  Good excuse to blow a day on the water and meet some of the guys here.

Brad I'm not sure whether the city ramp just off Main St. in the Old Town section of Hell-sinore is open.  I think that is where you are talking about.  The ramp I use is at the NW corner of the lake right across from the high school. Elsinore Marina & Campground.  Take Central offramp to Riverside DR and keep going until just before the road starts to wrap around and follow along the base of the Ortegas. Fee is $18 for 2 adults 2 kids. Nice campground, clean bathrooms, ex-Gestapo in golf carts monitoring the ramp. Oh and if you have to walk in the water to load your boat ya better wear cleats! LOL

Just a couple little last minute reminders as you're about to put the boat in the water and fire it up and subsequently drive it around...

1.  Check ALL hose clamps, etc. to ensure no hoses blowing off their fittings.
2.  Make sure engine block drain petcocks are closed and/or installed.
3.  Spark plugs are in tight.
4.  Plug wires all connected.
5.  DRAIN PLUG/s
6.  If you have a valve controlling the flow of water into engine, make sure it is open...
7.  Don't forget the keys at home, or the killswitch tab thingy.
8.  Your pump WILL suck shit off the bottom from 3-4' down at idle. It's best you wait til your suction is in chest deep water.
9.  Make sure the water exiting the block is really exiting the boat and not just spilling into your bilge (see hose clamp section)
10. make sure bilge pump is working, burnt fuse means sunk boat.
11. Check the oil!
12. Idle around the marina for a few minutes, have a friend watch whats going on back there. Or do it yourself.
13. If you're taking on water, it's better to beach it than to be fishing for it at the bottom of the lake.
14. BATTERY CONNECTIONS!

If any one else has things to add PLEASE DO!
I'm not trying to mommy you to death Brad, just know what it's like to be excited the first time you put your boat on the water after some major changes...

I personally forgot to put the drain hole plugs back into the block..... And left the hose clamp on the pump intake loose.... So as soon as I took off GALLONS coming in the boat...
Barely got it back onto the trailer...
Scared the shit out of me!

Yeah what he said.  Right now the channel from the dock out to the main lake just might be the deepest part of the whole place!  There's LOTS of shallow spots around the edges tho.

OOOH  YEEAAHHH !!!   Although there is a push to make it where you have to "register" in some way before you use it.

Well, wether you expected it or not, I was really stoked to see this boat come to life after all the work you've done tracking down the history and whatnot. Have fun, I can't wait til this damn money hole, I mean Hawaiian is in the water!
