I figured I needed an adventure before the weather really turned cold, so we took two jetskis, my futura mk2 and everything we owned on a boat camping trip to Lake Powell. I had never been there before. The lake is amazing! Unfortunately, we arrived along with a cold front late in October (snowed on the hills around us), but it did warm up over the week and we had a great time cruising and fishing along the many arms off the main lake while hiding from the wind. The stormy conditions abated and the water was beautiful and glassy under towering cliffs. Time to go hydrofoiling! Who needs a big ski boat when you have the inflatable and a 40 hp three cylinder?
I'm glad we didn't break a stringer overloading the boat. The parking lot photo is from take out. The boat got unloaded and rode home empty... to travel again soon!
Thank you to whomever posted the video clip previously with futura adventures in the UK. I saw those blue plastic food barrels with the sealing lids and then found three for $60 US total. Absolutely brilliant for bulk cargo in the inflatable. I appreciate all I have learned here on the forum.
Here is a youtube link.
