I would suggest that if this does go down, that that the test be done on a sand bottom. I know it is harder on hulls and props, but I don't think it is very ethical to churn up a bunch of mud and grass somewhere.

The nice thing about SLP is deep water is only a couple of feet away.
We could always run Mud Cut between West Glaveston and Bastrop Bay. That's just north of the pass. It has made me pucker a couple of times running it in the Flats Cat.

SLP could be done in conjunction with the beach gathering for those who will be attending. If it's POC then J should set it up. It was his idea!!! There will be very little damage to the bottom and/or rigs if we start the competition in about 12" of water on a hard sand bottom. Those that make it up in 12" move into 10". In water this shallow your rig will either get up or it won't. It does no good to over rev the motor if the prop does not bite after about 5 seconds.

I know with my rig in supper shallow water it normally takes over 5 seconds to get up especially in sand. Another nice thing about slp and mud cut is any damage we do will be erased come the next tide.
