READY TO ROCK!!! this weekend how about you speed to lead?

Looks like your baby needs a bath S2L. I was Jet skiing by your boat yesterday. Get her all spiffed up for the weekend! I heard Problem Solver (Scarab) and Force 10 are pace boats. Yikes!!!! top speed is 10-20 mph below my cruise speed.

We weren't planning on running in it, but we love to look at the boats. As a matter of fact, we have some people coming in from out of town with their boat, we are meeting them at Ft Desoto, then showing them how to get to the Tierra Verde Resort Marina, so it all works out for us! Hope everyone has a good time and good weather.

Are there any other runs coming up in the area?
