Just wanted to post a few pics we took this weekend. We didn't get many as there were so many other cameras around.

These first ones are of when Bob and Jay first landed at Saba Rock-basically at this end of the long trip and before the Poker Run. It was raining and had just let up from a torrential downpour they had just gone through-you can see it in the background on a couple pics. They were absolutely soaking wet from the rain. The last couple shots Jay isn't in because I think he is already at the bar ordering a Painkiller!

These are from our short run the day before the Poker Run.

These are of the Poker Run. Truly good times never to be forgotten. Days like these are why we go through all the difficult times associated with owning boats like these. Worth all the sweat, frustration, and every single penny.

Nice pics, David and thanks for sharing. I will call you this afternoon. Got some dates in mind for my return and want to see if it works for you and the others.

Default Link to Poker Run Video

Here is a link to the short version of the video shot from the helicopter by Rick. Like I mentioned in an earlier post you will see plenty of unsafe moments but that is just the way it is there. Enjoy the video. The boating and the scenery is just so beautiful. Can't wait to get back.

Awesome video Bob. Great to see your old boat running strong! Did you ask to drive it just for old times sake!?

Actually not. I was afraid I would blow up another motor or drive !! LOL It did seem strange tho seeing it so far away from home. i am happy with the diesel set up. I could not have undertaken the trip with the previous boat. Only a 200 mile range and high test fuel.
