Journey: Forest Landing – Triple L Estate

glenWe launched the Chaparral today at Forest Landing. I was amazed at how VERY tight the shifting felt. I had a difficult time at first. We launched during an extremely looowwww tide and you could see a lot of grass in the water. I worried about getting all tangled up in the grass. I made it home, however, and had it on the lift by 2:15.

stoneys broomesWe did a simple quick ride up to Len’s in order to fill up with fuel. We added 17.5 gallons @ 86.5 hours. Going up to Len’s provides a nice little ride which is quite enjoyable. Since we were already in the neighborhood we stopped at Stoney’s for a quick drink before returning home.
