Branched Oak Lake Sunday 10/13
« on: October 09, 2013, 11:20:40 PM »
Amber and I are planing on heading to Branched Oak Lake by Lincoln, NE probably for the afternoon.
Plans are still in the works, but I will post the full details as soon as I can.

Wanted to thank you for a great time on the lake, my son and I truly enjoyed meeting you and Amber.  It’s exciting to see a young couple enjoy boating and fixing these old classic Glastron's.  Your boat looks great, both you and Amber have done a great job restoring it.

My son said he has never heard so much boating talk in his life and he learned a lot today.  He’s still trying to figure out that anti gravity machine…go figure.   Looking forward to getting together next summer at Calamus, hopefully we can arrange something.

I will post a couple of pictures, however you saw I am pretty bad with my I phone…not to tech savvy...

We had a great time with you and Matt and it was great meeting the two of you. At least Phoenix Rising got out on the water under power for a little while. BTW thanks for the tow! I will be out trying to fix the issue after the rain passes this week, hopefully I can get it to act up on the hose so I can trouble shoot it better.

It was a blast riding with the two of you, it helped us get to know you better than we would have in separate boats, and we just love riding in that type of carlson designed hull. We will make sure to get a hold of you the next time we are in Lincoln.

here are some of the pictures we took Videos of your CVX and the Liberator we saw are being converted and uploaded at the moment.

The first Three videos are of Joe. The last ones are of Joe chasing the Liberator and one of the Liberator making its first run on the lake. We stopped and talked to the guys driving it and asked what kind of speed they were putting down. Their response was they were dialing it in and testing props and only running in the mid 80s and said it should be faster. BTW they had a Mercruy 225 and a Jack plate on the back.
