Default Nov boating, Cayo Costa, FL

Yesterday, we lowered the Skater off the lift, and spent the day boating.

We went out the Myakka River, south down Charlotte Harbor, west to Boca Pass, and beached up on Cayo Costa island.

Blue skies and 80s made for another great day of boating.

Join FMO and come with us to South Seas Plantation on Thanksgiving weekend. Here are a few pics from last years FMO SSP run.

Here are 3 pictures taken by Jay Nichols of my boat, on last years FMO SSO run.

I was a member, and rode on Bobs boat a few times last year, just been too busy to get back over, we just sold the bonita house(closing end of the month), but will be getting something else on yer coast, we are doing thanksgiving at Elliott Key this year
Hope to be over with you at new years, but I need to do a transom, lets see when we start that project, or if we keep running it as is

Hey--GREAT PICS!

I grew up in Port Charlotte! I have camped at Cayo Costa many times, great times indeed.

I want to run my Scarab around some of the haunts one of these days.

I remember running Charlotte Harbor in a Cougar cub! 25 HP! and I thought I was rolling!
