Great Pictures!!

I have a condo on the river across from NRL.

When I ger my next boat my goal is to go
on the Intercoastal from Florida to DC and
spend the Summer boating on the bay and river.

Nice picts. We just spent a week in DC two weeks ago and saw alot of the sights. One of our better vacations and plan on doing it again.

We stopped by the Flight 93 memorial on our way back and it was a very touching visit.

Glad to see you're still on the water. We will be doing some pontooning for the next month.

Great pictures and video of your dad. Thanks

useless bit of info:
I keep a peice of 3/4" thick foam taped over my mic on the video cam. Doesn't block out any sound what so ever, but eliminates the wind noise (crackling sound) 95% that is created when air passes over the holes in the mic pickup when you face into or sideways in the wind.

Sorry about the tough luck Craig. I agree with you that we can take the sights for granted, which is why I wanted to share. We wore vests on Thursday as there were only about 5 boats out all day. If anything happened, I wanted us to have a little extra something in our favor. I wore mine yesterday too. For some reason, my windscreen (none of the other 37ATs) has some stress marks from the cockpit cover. It has not worsened since I bought it, as I place a piece of foam pipe insulation over the winscreen over it before I install either cover. It happens. Not too worried about it.

SG, I am not heading out today, but you can look for Craig, he will be in a Top Gun somewhere around Pohick Bay/Woodbridge.

OutlawMark winterized yesterday, and I am probably not far behind him, unless MS wants to go out one more time.

MT, good luck with that trip. I know a couple folks who have boated all the way to the Outer Banks of NC. Florida is right around the corner from there! Good luck.

Ty, you will make it out next time, have fun at SML next weekend.

Here are a couple pics from the end-of-season raft up at www.tims2.com

--Monsoon rafted up to Dave M.

--Dave M's Superboat, Frank's new little Checkmate, Randy & Sharon (Beakboater) with their BRAND new 38 Fountain w/ staggered 600SCis, and Wayne (Dreamboater) and his Skater.

--Slight shot of the red paint on the Fountain, BEAUTIFUL boat Randy & Sharon, CONGRATS!! The dash is a work of art, but sorry, no pics.

Brian,

Nice seeing you yesterday. I need a bigger boat!

I know what you are saying about the vests. Once the water gets below 65 degrees or so, I usually wear one too. If you get thrown into water that cold you might be DONE. Plus, they keep you warm while riding.

I have had the DHS black choppers (US Customs) buzz us SEVERAL times. Once last season, I large shadow came over us from behind. I first thought a jet was passing way overhead. I turned around to look, and I could count the rivets on the front of the helicopter! They were about 15 feet off the top of the sunpad; at speed, all three of them grinning at us.

Great Pics Brian! I really miss that area up there.

You guys sure do make it tough for a brother with no boat down here in Texas.

Nice pics. I am originally from DC and was a detective there for 10 yrs. It was nice to see the city water views again. I used to do alot of boating along that water. If you take the river further west past georgtown, you get beautiful camera shots.
