Default Key West Poker Run

We are making the run from Miami to Key West on thursday. My concern is are there any boats that run an average of 50 to 55 to the Keys. I sure cant run 80 down there. It is my first run down there and dont want to be left behind. Is there a slower pack that runs there also.

Not sure what the plan is this year but last year's Thursday run had a 100mph group then another that left later that cruised around 50-60mph.

I will be on the Thursday run and will be happy to run with you at the 55-60mph pace. Its usually myself and OSO Steve that take up the rear of the pack with our boats and make sure no one needs assistance.

I'm just confirming Otis....You and Steve usually take up the rear??!!

We're running down on Thursday too. I think we're going to cruise down with Phil and his crew and Tom (Hustlethis), Dan (H2Otioe Playboy) and Tim (38 Cig T/S). I don't assume the speeds will be very fast, though Toms boat runs well over 100, we'll see if he can keep it mellow!

Here's the three boats from Cali coming out....Phil will have a new boat there (I'm assuming his new Gladiator).
