Very sad day, I went to the beach with them and then we were going to meet at the Snook Inn, It was very calm just doesn't make sence. Harper was looking forward to our next fun run we will miss them. My Prayers to Jennifer and the family.

terrible, the sole survivor has a very long, very difficult road ahead of her...

I'm sure she could use prayers more than speculation right now, like any accident the exact truth may or may not ever be known, but it will certainly not be known quickly.

Saw the movie We Are Marshall the other night, really makes you think about how difficult coping with loss can be.

It wasn't rough yesterday, at least not off of Bonita Beach & Ft. Myers Beach. Low tide wasn't until evening, and even then it wasn't much of a low tide.
Yes it was a Power Play but that pic he posted is a Baja race boat. Sorry if the wording wasn't clear.

What ever really happened, it is a tragedy. Our prayers go out to the survivor(s), family and friends.

We were out yesterday from 11:00am until 3:00PM, Charlotte Harbor to Boca Grande to Ft Myers, a stop, and back latter, calm conditions.
