Tom,

That's what a lot of my married friends tell me !!!!!!!

Seriously, though - the F-350's going back to Ford - 55 days in the shop since Labor Day (and counting)...

Please visit http://www.offshoreonly.com/forums/s...60#post2021060 for the News Release on the success of the event.

We have also created a Photo Gallery Category for this event with several pictures, please feel free to add your pictures.

http://www.offshoreonly.com/gallery/...y.php?cat=3064

You can also visit the Wink News Website for their story on the Benefit:

http://www.winktv.com/x26524.xml

I would also like to thank Bob Barnhart for his efforts and my apologies for not personally attending the event. I had an issue with my eye sight and the doctor recommended that I not operate a boat until the blurry vision cleared. Since the doctor was in the NE US and the appointment was the afternoon before the run I was not able to make it in time.

I would also like to thank all the others that attended the run and those that also contributed to the auction. I will also be sending Jennifer a generous donation from Offshoreonly.

Last Friday by accident I was doing some site clean-up and deleted a section that had the global thread on this event. It deleted the root thread causing all the information to vanish. It was brought to my attention a couple hours later which resulted in me having to roll the entire site back to the previous nights backup just to get the thread back. I had to make the decision to lose over 12 hours worth of information to get this one thread back. The thread was so important I did not even have to think about the consequences I had to deal with by doing it, I just did it. I learned not to work on the site while my vision was blurred.

I remember the first time I met Bob in Key West. He was headed back to his hotel after visiting the internet cafe where he was surfing OSO. He is a dedicated OSO member and boater as you can see by his actions with this benefit. The World and this website need more people like Bob.

Here's a sample of some of the shots that are included in the DVD that is being produced. The resolution on the DVD is much better than I can post here.

There are approximately 1000 shots between the three photographers. I'm sure you will be able to find at least a dozen shots that bring smiles to your face.

Enjoy,

T
