skatermike 24, tell me more about the Glen. Any Poker Runs or gatherings? My boat is a 1989 Baja Sport 226 sitting on a Eagle tandem axle trailer which I bought new. It is powered by a 460 OMC King Cobra? Don't laugh, I had only one incident in 13 years where I had to be towed in. Very reliable package for me.

I owned a 24 sport, My wife loves baja's. You can't really explain the Glenn, you just got to go, you'll love it, I'll look around and find so pictures to post for you, The Glen rocks on the weekends. For you its about 1 1/2 if you tow down the river, and I guess about 2 if you boat down. The Glen is a fresh water spring thats located on the west side of Lake George, on any normal summer weekend there is about 200 hundred boats there. Just one of the many places you'll enjoy boating in Florida, when are you moving?

As far as poker runs and fun runs, just pick a weekend any I'm sure there is someting going on, The first race of the year is in St.Cloud in April, then a race in Daytona, Fort Myers, Sarasota won't get bored.

when are you moving?? I have lived in Jax have for about 4 years. Ive boated on both the St. Johns river and the atlantic, also the ICW.
as for ramps they are few and far ther is not a lot of dry stack storage either, actualy there are not that many performance boats but it is starting to improve. as for poker runs there is the Baja Challenge poker run on May 4th and 5th. limited to 65 boats for info call 904-292-1287. when you get to the area, and need someone to show you the river. get in touch ill show you.
as for races ST Cloud 2 hrs away, Daytona 1 hr away, Savannah 2 hrs away. give me a email if you need any help. Pete
