    What do you call a perfect ride?

    So what is it you really like about boating. Is it ripping across the water WFO? Is just crusing along enjoying the ride? Is it just cruising to your favorite achor place and sitting for the day.

    Probably my favorite ride is about an hour before sunset. 80+ degrees with a little chop is great. Run at about 50 and just enjoy it.

    Second would be like we did last year on St.Clair. Running along at 60+ with 1-3 footer and a whole group of boats.

    Or maybe it's just being on the boat. It does not matter if I'm haulin the mail or sitting on the hook. As long as I am on the boat I am happy.
    There are good ships, there are wood ships, there are ships that sailed the seas. But the best ships are friendships, and may they always be!

    Either cruising or hauling the mail out into the middle of no where. No land in sight, running solo, or with a bunch of boats. Im on a boat, get me away from land.

    I also like what Dave said before sunset just cruising or a little better, and just enjoying the ride. Last year Me and Pete ran to the raft off Saturday night and it was 4-5 footers on the way down there, but man 3 hours later it was the best ride home, Sunset, clear skies, smoothest water I have ever seen on the river. We really enjoyed that run!

    I call the perfect ride actually driving my own boat, hopefully soon. At least I have a lot of great friends that don't mind me being boat whore.
