Thunderstorm At Belmont Bay…

:: Tags: Boating, Weather

I’m trying too get the cockpit cover on the boat before the sky starts to fall…

It’s not that uncommon to have a thunderstorm pop-up when out boating on the river, especially during the latter half of the summer when temperatures are in the 90’s. So before heading out on the boat, I hit up the local radar and marine forecast to try and determine what the afternoon will bring in the way of weather and plan my boating day accordingly.

This past Sunday would be one of those day when we had to head back in early… and believe me, it was a good call to cut and run when we did. Some of the wind gusts in the marina were as high as 60 mph and even though we didn’t have much trouble getting back into our slip, some of our dock mates were not quite as fortunate. I’ve added some photos of the festivities for your viewing pleasure… enjoy!!

Aquapalooza 2010
The view of Tim’s Rivershore from our raft-up – Aquapalooza 2010

Well here they are folks… I’ve finally have had some free time to download and edit the pictures from the Sea Ray Aquapalooza 2010 event at Tim’s Rivershore in Dumfries, Virginia. It wasn’t the best Aquapalooza I’ve ever been too, but it was a excellent day to be on the water and with most of our friends there to share in the fun… well, what can I say, everyone had a really great time! Here are some of my photos from the event… enjoy!!

Bauer TotalOne Skates… Awesome!!

:: Tags: General, Hockey, Video

This is a video clip showing the new TotalOne hockey skates from Bauer in slow motion. The players are pro’s and the skates at the same level. I just picked up a set of TotalOne 100’s which are a level down from the pro skates, but perform just as nicely!

The Best Hands In Hockey…?

:: Tags: Hockey, Video

Being such a huge hockey fan and enthusiast I just couldn’t help but post these two videos. The first one shows Pavel Datsyuk of the Detroit Red Wings playing a one-on-one game of keep away with one of the reporters from FSN in Detroit. This guy is pretty good, but he’s no match for Pavel! The second video feathers a former Detroit Red Wing, Alex Kovalev, as he skates circles around three other players and never gives up the puck… not even once! Nice stick handling skills…!!
