Here is the website for the Florida Powerboat Club www.flpowerboat.com
It looks like the boatered group is mainly cabin cruisers and families. That was my perception and I may be off. That isn't a issue as am certainly open to tagging along. I had though there was also a group of power boaters who do the run. I'll let you know what I find. Thanks for the boatered link as it has great information. I registered there also.
Karl only check the board once in a blue moon.... If ya want, send him an email [email protected] he checks that like every other day or so.Originally posted by Mrs.CNC:
You're right! It was Deanna I spoke to. Thanks. I won't call Karl at work though perhaps he or Deanna will post any info they have. It seems there may be others interested as well after reading the post offered as a link on this topic.
Enjoy our balmy Chicago 50 degrees today </STRONG>
Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy horsepower. And I've never seen a sad person hauling a$$!
I found this in fla sportsman mag. The islands of bahamas has announced it will sponsor 10 trips in 2002 for novice boaters interested in making the voyage from s.fl. Destinations include bimini, walkers cay, port lucaya,grand bahama, berry islands, nassua, and exuma. Contact the bahama's tourism center, vertical markets unit @ (305)932-0051 or 800 327 7678. My wife and i are interested in doing this trip too - maybe we can get a oso flotila out there
Talk to Keith Gomez when u call the Bahama tourism 800-327-7678. Real knowledgeable/friendly. They have several trips...wkndrs/10days. I'd be interested in the wkndr (personally) leave Thurs am/return Sun noon. They just group the boats by date, not size/power,etc. A mix of boats @ 30 boats. There is one leaving for June 20-23rd. $75 reg fee-non refund/ could put forth to next trip if cancellation/weather..etc. He did say that Seatow was the one to get registered w/ in the event of a failure. Also the captains mtg. is mandatory the nite b4 to go. They will be updating their site w/ more info soon (www.bahamas.com). I'd ask them to mail the info if you're interested. I did-hope it gets here soon.
Maybe we could get some OSO's (30)together to have our own trip
Your best bet is to call Stu Jones (FL powerboat club).
Well organized trips with plenty of similar intrest boaters.
Mechanics are present and there is a navigation/lead boat.
If you haven't done it before by yourself, FL Powerboat Club is the way to go.
