FPC west coast boats are all pretty well home now. Terry Sobo aboard Red Reynolds Nor Tech brought 5 boats back Sunday. I left with a group of 10 boats at 9:30 this morning and arrived at Marco Island a few minutes after 12 PM. 2.5 hrs is good time for a group running 145 miles.

Funny story. As we came along to Marathon our 10 boat convoy grew to about 15 boats. When we turned north to cross Florida Bay and come up the west coast all 15 boats followed. I knew there were Miami bound boats that if I did not stop and sort them out were going to end up on the wrong coast. We pointed them in the right direction and went on our way.

Thanks Scott,

With the winds north east and onshore we had a great ride once we got out of the Hawk Channel and onto the Gulf.
2 of my buddies from Ontario had a 1 pm flight to catch today out of Ft Myers and left at 7 AM. They made it. That was the 50 ft Airborne and 36 Nor Tech cat.
