Default Another beautiful weekend on SKater, in SW Florida

Another beautiful day of boating, Saturday April 26,in SW Florida.

Lowered the Skater of the lift around 10:15am, Got back around 3:00pm.

First pic, heading West approaching the Gulf through Gasparilla Pass, Little Gasparilla Island to the right (North), and Gasparilla Island aka Boca Grande to the left (South).

Second pic, near the Boca side of the pass.

Third pic, heading North in the Gulf on the way back, approaching Gasparilla Pass.

Columbus gang must be getting more loads in England? I didn't see them this time out

You have a great set up.

Frank, did you get the wife out for a ride yet? Looks like a perfect day for it.

The boating is a lot better on the west coast of Florida. Tell him to build something over here.

West Palm is ok, but the West Coast, from Sarasota to Marco, is much better boating.

Green Waters, calm Gulf, lots of pristene islands

Bob,

No. I wish Nancy had come, it was a perfect day for her to get to know the Skater.

She actually has not been in the last 4-5 of my boats. It was back on 2001 in the OuterLimits, at the NJPPC Sep 2001 fun run to Atlantic City, when she was last boating with me.

I am hoping to get her to come on the charity run on June 28 that Tom is setting up. She knows Cape Harbor, we were very serious about a house there, but once we found this place, it could not compete.

Congrats on your new boat, from the pics Jay and others have taken, it looks awesome. I love the 'glass cockpit' dash. I know you had said about 600 miles per tank, but what is the tanks capacity?

My Skater can actually go about 420 miles on a tank. I know that seem crazy, I do not hold all that much fuel, but a 2.4mpg, it adds up.
