Thank you Midnight Star - Shadyside, MD

Your help was appreciated for helping me out with a soft grounding.

While all the other Powerboaters just blew on by...I want to thank the Captain and Crew of the Midnight Star of Shadyside, Maryland for giving us a hand.....

Restores your faith, eh, Chief?

Actually, the ones who blow by throwing a wake can be helpful. Time it right and goose the throttle at the top of the wake-wave and inch your way off.

I've asked for (and received) a powerboat wake, for just that purpose.

It doesn't matter how they provide effective help; just that they do - and we thank them.
