Preparations at Lake Powell, UT

During the 8 months of planning for the Loop I made numerous trips to Lake Powell to determine gear suitability and familiarize with the Lowrance GPS and Sirius marine weather receiver. The Premier Pontoon S-series 235 tri-pontoon with PTX and rough water option was delivered by the fine folks from Hallberg Marine in February. The "sea trials" were essential in establishing confidence in the equipment; in the meantime route planning and gear acquisition took place at home in the snowy Colorado mountains.
