Default Boat Hitchhikers

Sometimes, I see hitchhiker discussions when OSO members are vacationing somewhere and are looking for a boat ride. I donít know if it works for people, but I thought I would ask. My wife, myself and another OSO couple will be in Key West starting March 30-April 2, then in Miami from the 2nd to the 6th. We would love to take a boat ride in either or both locations. If there are any takers that would like to give us a ride/tour around the local areas please let me know,
here are a few options.
1. We could pay for gas.
2. We could pay for gas and alcohol.
3. We could pay for gas, alcohol and provide a designated driver. I donít drink, but I canít say that for the rest of the crew.
4. We can trade boat rides with you if you are coming to Virginia any time soon. The 400th anniversary of Jamestown is this summer, and if there are any history buffs that would like to see the James River and Jamestown from the river, we can provide the tour.
Our ages range from 50 to 40 and when we are on vacation we try to act like our kids!
Thanks, Dean

I don't remember the name but there's a boat tour company in Mallory Square that has sunset tours in Cat.

It's not the fastest boat but heck....worst comes to worst...

There is also one of these by the Hard Rock in Biscayne Bay/Miami.

The one I saw was a +/- 30 ft. cat, I think it had speedmasters on it too.... I think it was set up to seat like 6-8 people..

Pay gas OR lunch and alcohol - not both.
If 'designated driver' - it's a free ride. You are the skipper.
