It seems to me that Predator was maybe the 10th boat to Boca Grande Pass. Which is not to bad considering he was one of the pace boats for the second group. I am not one to ordinarilly stir up the pot but it just seems that everyone is having so much fun debating

Eric from Boyd motors has provided fantastic support by coming to every poker run and makeing sure everything is set up right. They ran great but one decided to take a break on its first time out. We think it might of been a head gasket. We will know next week. Next time I might put some box lunches on as a back up.

You need to bring your Skater to one of the Poker runs. Sarasota ended up being great 46 water. Lot of great people to meet and BS with. Jacksonville Florida on June 9th sounds like a good one.

Something to be said in keeping your boat running. I talked to Bob and he was going to run Predator 120 miles down the coast on Sunday!! Great boat and owner!!

I hpoe the head gasket isn't going to start being like the blower belt thing of the past. "It's to tight" I'm right every now and then.
Food and drink in a big power boat is a must...and a phone.
