Great videos. Just wondering how deep the water is running through those channels?
P.S. PETA isn't going to be happy with that run under the bridge.

Most of that water is no more than 8ft which is twice the depth we have around the Islands around Marco. If you get out of the channel and into brown water you're in trouble.

It wasn't marked, so we aren't coming off plane!! PETA or no PETA. LOL

Very true and many do end up in trouble. Sea Tow and Boat US do very well in the Keys.

Song is "From Paris to Berlin". I will check the artist name and edit this post later. When I initially posted a song that had copywrite issues they allow you to go back in and edit your music selection. They have a selection of songs that you can choose from, most of which are just crap. This song had a bit of a beat to it and was about the best of the lot.

Thumbs up

Bob, You're the man! Amazing how steady the video is, guess that's what 50' of bad azz hull can do for you. Third one won't come up for me either.

Do you realize that with a couple hundred dollar camera and a few minutes of your time you may single handedly cure cabin fever for an untold number of middle aged perf boat freaks. Keep up the good work, our sanity is in your hands.

Thanks, David. I have a plan to get the boat down to the BVI in April so all being well we will be seeing you in the Islands.
