Default Jones Beach Air Show and Fleet Week, anyone interested?

Memorial day weekend is finally here. Too bad the weather still sucks here. BUT, the forecast looks good for Sunday and Monday. Myself and a few friends ( about 5 boats ) are planning to raft up in Zachs Bay Sunday for the airshow. I am going to try to make it to the Hudson on Monday to get up close to the fleet. My concern is the ocean conditions. Its been so damn windy here for so long, I dont believe the projected marine forecast for 2' seas on Monday. If its good, I am going.

Is anyone interested in either?

Vinny

I will probably go to Zach's early Sunday morning, likely stay at anchor overnight, come back on Monday.

Yes, good luck this year with your rig, I look forward to seeing it again. Try not to tilt the earth and ocean with your motor when I am out trolling for bluefish with the Sonic, ok?

Thanks for the heads up! We just went down to Ft. Lauderdale & my 4 year old son had a BLAST! To our surprise, the pilots were staying at the same hotel (Bahia Mar) and my son was in awe meeting them. We took lots of pictures with them & they gave my son posters & shirt pins.
I just told my son that we are going to take a drive (an our from Greenwich CT) & see them tomorrow I hope the weather clears by the time they go up

Lucky you Dave, hopefully he will continue to be impressed with the pilots and go to the airforce academy. That way you will not have to pay for his college degree! <gg>

Pretty cool Ft. Lauderdale experience for you and your son.
