There were 15 boats in all. Unfortunately we did not get all of them.

Here's a crew for you.

Bill, Poker runs America

Also on the boat was Bob the Builder, since Predator took a sabbatical and Bob " Big Thunder" Morgan.

Temperature a little chilly for Florida.

Nice looking CIg. This one ran pretty strong.

I think this guy needed a couple more motors. Of course he would have to add another 3 feet to the beam.

Larry and Susan in Masquerade.

Our camera takes beautiful pics but it has to be held still.

Larry, you can tutor Erika on basic and proper procedures of photography 101.

Within minutes of getting to Burnt Store it started to rain. Everybody covered up and had lunch. After a few hours the rain stopped and we had a great ride back.

We crossed Charlotte Harbor and intercepted the ICW south. Had a great 90 mph cruise back to Bonita. We trailed Terry Sobol in his Nortec through the narrow straights of the ICW past Captiva and Sanibel.

FYI Terry, we would have passed but we had a load of 89 on the port side.

Bob, you did a great job and everybody I talked to had a great time. I know we can depend on you to coordinate this event again next year. Thank you.

We had lunch with Bob Morgan today and I beleive he is sincerely considering running his in the 2nd annual FM Fun Run.

Thanks for posting the pics Dennis. The boat in this pic is a newly delivered 39' Sutphen with 4 - 250 hp outboard Mercs.
Owner is Bob McCoy from Ontario. He keeps a 43' Nor Tech up there. Bob is past his mid 70's now and is out there every chance he gets.

Looks like you guys had a good time When I saw that pic of the Sutphen I almost thought it was a friend of mine from Cape Coral that has a 39 Sutphen....keep an eye out for him he is "Bob" on the board. This boat strolls
