I ran last Sunday from Jupiter Inlet to Southport Raw Bar....dead flat, nice ride for a $200 (fuel) free lunch!

I picked my buddy up just inside the Hillsboro Inlet and there were a ton of boats out. Never got wet either!

Glad to hear the Floating Reporter is still on the job!

Dont sell it, that boat is way too cool!

Thanks

I haven't used it in a while, after the ride yesterday you maybe right.

If I get another boat I will have to lay out ALOT more $ & with the economy the way it is I'd probably be better off with $35k in a speed boat than $150k tied up+ the insurance is alot less.

They both basically do the same thing.

Are there any good threads with any history and pictures of the boat from the racing days?

Maybe some older ones, I think the last time it raced was Key West '04. I was Crew on a different P-5 boat at the time, and us and the former owner of this one were neck and neck a bunch
