Re: Delta/Brentwod Hotels?

Try Sugar barge resort, they have camp trailers for rent with electricity for the boat and it is right down the street from Russo's or if you don't mind tent camping you can pitch a tent right at Russo's and plug your boat in. A lot of the high school teams camp out there for these events.

Re: A Graphic Reminder To ALWAYS Attach The Kill Switch!

Also check all external parts on a regular basis no matter how new the boat is! Motor vibration, rough water and trailer time on the roads have a tendency to loosen things, a quick once over every few trips could have prevented this, luckily they were wearing their PFD's and kill switch attached.
