I just got a 26X as well and will be using it in Kemah.
Maybe I'll see you out there!

The PO already named my boat "Surfer Girl".

Awesome. Congrat's. I keep my boat at a mast-up storage place right on the water; FM 2094.
I've counted 6 MAC's in that place at least...and a few next door in the water at Legend Point.

Now you know what my boat looks like...please come say hello if you see me out there.

That would be a great honor to use his art and name; coming from a noble cause.

that was the first thing we did when we got our :macm: is name her, we called a local graffix place and they did it for 50$ the tribal sun is the tattoo on my back, they took a picture of it in the studio and the name is a mix of me and my girlfriends last names.
