Cool How was boating this weekend?

I was just wondering who else went boating this weekend? We went both days, late in the afternoon, after the baby got up from her nap. H2O was glass smooth, temps. ~75 Deg., I checked out my new Garmin GPSMap76, it's pretty cool!
Question, Does any body have/use Garmin's "Lights and Waterways" CD map for their GPSMap 76? What's the resolution like, compared to what comes in the unit from Garmin?
Thanks,
MD

It was a picture perfect weekend. We went out both days. You can't ask for a better weekend...We were borderline 80* on both days with nice mild winds enough to make it fun...Burnt a lot of fuel, too.

BD,
Where did you go? We just went up and down the Indian River. I don't go out in the ocean when the baby is aboard. At least, until she learns to swim.

Hey Dean!
We cruised Tampa bay from east to west and north to south, did some wave smashing in the gulf and hit the intercoastal for lunch, dinner, refreshments, etc...We hit Shell Key once or twice and just had a blast. Thanks for asking...How 'bout yourself. How's the east coast treating you?

Hey Mike, Take That!...LOL!
It's time you get your ass out this way! You'll like it, I swear!


Bill, glad to see some up north are willing to venture out and have some fun. Must have been cool, Uh...I mean cold.

Sorry to hear that, Cord
