mendota.....
« on: August 02, 2009, 03:39:42 pm »
We had a good first trip out in the new boat, also first time in the slough which was super nice. Good place for jets and flats (hot rod type boats). Met some real good people out there. Only 4-5 boats on the water so it was super flat all day.......... found a few small issues with the boat that need to be worked out like the crap ass wiring  :banghead: and fuel pressure  but nothing too big....

here's a few pix

Looks like a good day  ;D.   

 Wish I could have been there, I like that place.  Except for the slick as ice ramp. 

 BTW welcome to the site.   Maybe I'll see you out there in a month or so.

that ramp is crazy slick, both the wife and I slid about 5 feet before we were able to grab the boat and stop our self from eating sh*t :o :o...... it would be good to see ya out there. This is the closest water to us so it will be a regular place for us.....

Ah Turd Bay, the smoothest water you'll find!  Been a REALLY long time since I have been out there.

Turd Bay = Mendota Slough plus all the cow poop.   ;D   More of just a joke than a reality.  Killer place though.  A bit shallow in places, need to be selective where you bail off of a ski!

Hey bigmike. No website for mendota other than the fishing stuff. Its a small place over all perfect for jets and flat bottoms. Good local following. slow weekend might see 5 boats good weekend 20-25 boats, there is a good sand bar about waist deep where everyone hangs out. good thread here....

nathan, heres a link to the new thread over on PB, http://www.performanceboats.com/html/forums/showthread.php?t=44357  .  Looks like its going to be a good weekend out there.  Its a cool group of people.  Just watch out for that ramp (slickery), once your in the water go northish (under the train bridge).  It wanders around a bit then widens out where everyone hangs out (you cant miss it).

 Thats the spirit !!!!

 One year I was out driving my old boat around with a cast on my right leg.  Set it on the bow and used my left foot for the throttle.  :screwy:  They never should have told me that cast was fiberglass.  >:D

I'm a message board junkie!  Everyone says they're going this weekend, Steve included but Bobby's son's birthday party is Sunday so I'm not sure how its going to work, we'll probably all be out a bit later in the afternoon after lunch I suspect.  I can picture their yard littered with boats...good thing they live in the country with plenty of parking!  Steve says we're taking our boat over there!  I already told him its my boat though, he needs to get his own!
