The screen before we left
The skies at departure.
Wasn't there some old saying about "Red Skies at Morning" ?
The screen before we left
The guy that "gave his right arm for a trip like that".
Thanks to a brush fire somewhere near Marco Island.
Red Skies at Night.
Falling off the boat?!?!?! How many times has that happened to you in your boating career, much less at a more important time?
You could have just told us that the seas were so rough the injuries happened on the return trip and it would have been you guys' secret - we wouldn't have known
Congratulations on a world-record setting run and enough stories for years, I'm sure!!! Can't wait to see you to catch up!
Congrats!! Hope your recovery is fast!!! Heck you might even end up with a scar to remember the trip by!!! "Scars are trophies for the intense!!"
Bob and Terry,
Just catching up reading about the return trip. Bob you are one tough customer. Congratulations on the trip and looking forward to hearing the stories. By the way Happy fathers day
Thanks everyone. While there was a serious side to this whole program of trying to do this and establish a record, when I looked at the picture that Jay posted before our departure from Key West it also reminded me that here are 5 OSO guys out for a blast on an offshore boat. For me, you have to have fun or it's not worth doing. We had fun every step of the way.
There also needs to be a purpose as records are made to be broken and one day someone will take this away from us. So our purpose was to raise a bit of money to help young Jennifur make her way thru college and have a chance at a better life. No one can take that away from us.
It's been great sharing this with our OSO friends as well and your support is greatly appreciated.
Maybe more later.
Congrats Bob ...job well done. I hope you can get up some energy for the Don Aronow Bimini run.....this Friday.
If not, you will be with us in spirit.
There is no way I can make it. I will certainly be with you in spirit and will be following your event. I damaged by right shoulder and need to get to a doctor. Right arm so I cannot throttle but know lots of guys who could for me. I need to start taking better care of my body. Soon I will be coming up on middle age ! LOL
I want to make a donation to your designated charity. I have not had time to look for those details and assume I can find that info in your thread. If not, please post here or PM me.
Thanks for thinking of me and all the best with your Bimini run. Next time for sure,
