While waiting for the flight to arrive, we did get to see an F 15 and an older F 86 do manuevers over the airport. Pretty cool.

I can't believe you scored a slip at breakwaters Tom... I figured that place would have been reserved months in advance... I bet the view from there was sick??

We were swinging on the hook just off the entrance to the barge canal. It was an awesome show and we had the best seats in the house. I've got a couple photos if somebody wants to post 'em...

Well I see everyone had a good time. We made it as far as deep bay and tried to beach for Greggs kids party but the waves were just pushing the boat inland and couldn't get the anchor to stick. we ended up at B.A.B. and came in before the rain hit. I took my nephew nad his friends for a couple rides at 75 MPh before heading in and all saw was grins from ear to ear. Maybe we'll see evertone this coming weekend.

The "hardcore" boat enthusiasts/owners made it out; GLH, JS, Charlie, Todd, Shane, Jamie, Chris, and I'm sure others I didn't see.

We were having a good time until the Coast Guard made us move. Friends had a spot Friday night off from oakledge Park. We were told to move about 50 yards out from where we were around 9am. Moved appx 200 yrds out,5 boats,5 anchors. Safety boats were waving to us and talking to us all day.
Around 3pm Custom's boat came in and told us we had 10 mins to move our boats or he was going to ticket all of us. This is after we had been there for about 5-6 hrs and mutiple boats were on top of our anchor lines. They were being total TOOLS... We asked them to help us with moving some boats on top of our anchor lines,but would not. Good way to promote safety there C.G.
When we finally un-tied we could not get an anchor set with all the other boats on top of us.
Started raining and decided to get out.
Had a wonderful ride home in the pouring rain! Felt like hail balls hitting me in the face.
