John Ricker and Franz Buddenberg discuss the smooth ride of the Conquerors...
Toms 14' Valiant and Johns 105 Conqueror.
We felt Tom and Linda should get the bravest boater award for making the 30 mile ( one way ) trip in a 14' boat, they had fun but the waves were tough on them...
After the trip we all had Dinner at the Runaway 2 restaurant. Here Bruce Lienmiller and Franz enjoy finally getting out of the sun and heat...
