Being on plane and steering. To my understanding they have better control above 55 mph. , not picking on anyone directly. That is what I have been told. I have never ridden in one. I need to drive one so I understand.

I posted this up on offshore. I had one cat owner say that 55 is not a problem. Not much chit chat, but I got 270 people to read it.

Just start with the (3) that got ticketed last year. Don't allow them to enter this year, or fine the hell out of them.

Ingrid is putting a plan together. We will see what see comes up with. If I donít like it, you will just find me at Horton Bay for the day.

A plan with no action, or teeth is worthless. Just like outfitting the pace boat with cameras.....To me it seems like you guys continue with verbal threats and never do anything about it.

I am really surprised there have not been any collisions during the parade Lap or through round lake.

When I had a bigger boat I would set side ways at the start and force them single file. One boyne thunder I took a wake over the bow of the hydra sport. I hang back a little now.

My thoughts are to take the v-bottem's and break them up into 4 groups to put a good show on for the crowd with the parade lap, Then let the Cats leave straight down the lake from Sommerset and not go thru the Parade Lap. Once again, this is not aimed at anyone or is this ment to be a negative post. Just trying to get some input to take to the board. Last year we had some Cats get some speeding tickets on Lake Charlevoix. I want to keep this a safe and fun time. We have to deal with the 55 mph speed limit on Lake Charlevoix so we do not jeopardize our Coast Guard permit for Lake Charlevoix. If you have some thoughts, please feel free to post them up.
Have you been able to locate and torpedo's?

Iíll take you up on that. I have never registered before. I want people to sign a form when they check in. They donít care about the card hand, but telling them they canít come to the dinner might scare them. Also will include the water cops and go pros for back up. Not willing to let the rude people shut this run down. A picture of the boat passing and a signed agreement should make it easy for Ingrid to enforce.
