Here are 3 pictures that came our exceptional, and since I have 18m pixels for each, I am considering making some poster size prints for myself.

Poster material for sure.

Frank is that last pic back in Pt Charlotte I think? I had the tide not back up until almost 11 PM I think. Glad you guys did not get caught with your boats on the lift that morning. That is a long time to have no water !!

Bob,

That picture was taken 7:15am, about 20 minutes before low tide, and at that time I had about 2ft 6in of water out at my lift (I checked), 360ft out into the river. This past Sat it was dry out to about 100ft. Other times with the winter tides it can be dry out to 180ft. People often ask me why my dock is so long, and I show them pictures like those I posted.

When we got back at 3-4pm or so, I had close to 4 feet of water at the lift.

Since some do not live here full time, I had advised all those coming from Port Charlotte & Punta Gorda Iles about the tide, and recommended they make the necessary accommodations for Sat morning. Obviously all took my advise.

It was a great day, my son-in-law Mark and I had a really good time, and Jim and his crew from MI, were all smiles.

FYI: the Useppa tour was nice, the driver told us allot about the current status of the island, a power generations plant, a reverse osmosis water plant, heli pad for the MedStar chopper, a 7 guest room hotel, two places to eat, and a few other interesting facts. Most of the scenery pictures were taken along the walking trail, which was a great way to see the islands beauty.

Default Thank you all who contributed

FMO had a very successful charity fun run on Saturday in many respects. Not only did we enjoy great weather and a good turn out of boats, but we raised $ 4,900.00 for our education foundation through entry fees, poker proceeds and tee shirt sales. I was having lunch with Alec Cloke ( OSO catastrope ) today and he had asked how the club did financially Saturday. When I told him $ 4,900.00, he laid down a $ 100 bill and said, lets make it a nice even $ 5,000.00. Thank you Alec and everyone who contributed to the success of Saturday's run. I can see that this year, FMO will be able to provide more academic scholarships than ever in the past.
Everyone belonging to this club can be very proud.
Thank you.

Bob

I am sure some of you can think of some other firsts.

I'll add to that. I'm sending you a check for $250 for the scholarship fund.

Good to see you again Bob!! Thanks for the hospitality and your efforts on producing a fantastic run. I had a GREAT time!!!
