A while back Larry got tired of just fishing off the back of his beloved Baba
Yaga. Oh sure, it's a nice stable fishing platform but it was just, well,
sorta slow. Also, those pesky marina punks had managed to acquire some
Savannah Masters and were getting annoying. So he decided to kill two birds
with one stone and sent out making himself a fast, well armed bass boat. And,
of course, after he made one his drinking buddies just had one as well. Next
thing the harbor master knew there was eight of these things parked next to
the petite Baba Yaga, bellied up to the pier next to the Pirate's Cove Bar and

The Avanti is a fast and fairly sleek hydrofoil with  a sloped turret mounted
on the center of the boat above the bridge. They are fast, maneuverable and
really pretty when painted bright red or black.

Oddly all eight known Avanti Bass Boats are identical in appearance. This
alone confuses most people that know Larry.

Often docked at The Pirate's Cove Bar and Grill. Whenever Larry takes Baba
Yaga out for a party cruise the whole Avanti fleet just naturally has to be
there two just in case Larry finds something interesting to shoot at.

It's OK to disagree with me......I can't force you to be right.

If you are waiting for me to go out of my mind you will have to wait. The exits are not clearly marked.
