Boat is ready to go! Heading to Egmont tomorrow. Just bought the charts for my Garmin too. From the Desoto ramp, is it safe to head west? Or should I go east towards the bay?

Sunday, I'm making plans to stay over at Caladesi. Website said they have shorepower there. That's cool. At least I can plug in a fan!

I see the Clearwater ramp has fresh water. Bring my own hose? What about Desoto, any freshwater there?

Heading West out that little pass can be tricky. I have done it a few times and found my self following my chart plotter and running in 1-2ft of water. Stay on plane baby! Safer to go out to the bay and around.

I am just now back and done with boat cleaning etc... I am beat the F up!!! Man it was nasty coming back into the bay. I'm not going to push myself tomorrow, I will wake up when I wake up and play it by ear. I am mentally motivated to get over there, but we'll see how my body feels. I destroyed my onboard cooler today and blew off one of my trim pump caps (that explains the brown stuff in the bilge) At best I might make it later on in the day and will dock overnight at Caladesi. I hope the Clearwater ramp won't be full

I did meet some people today (including Fevermike) and was rafted 2 boats away from an OL (39 GTX I think) with a pair of Illmors

If I don't make it tomorrow, rest assured that I will be back over that way in the future. That is an awesome place to own any kind of boat!

a white/black 38 Donzi center console wtih triple 300's... that'll be us...

Off your guys topic but how does this boat run? If he got it from Lightning Bay I was supposed to get a ride on it but never did. Happy with the speed of the triple 300xs instead of triple 275 verados? Hope you guys have fun today. Mike

Thanks for the kind words Julie. Luv's ya man.

Driven, we will look out for you. Don't forget, today is the famous Womens Club Rum Punch Challenge. If you don't know what that is, it's everyone makes a rum punch and get's voted......I'm sorry but it's just a bunch of beautiful women in bikinis (sometimes) cranked up on rum punch !!! Dave

Ok, the women and bikini thing just might be too much to resist. I'm up and getting ready. My cell is 407-325-5756
I will be on the lookout.
