So is this basically a fun run setup and then get to drop off toys at the lunch stop? If so that sounds like a blast!

Don,,

That is basically it. There is a minimal registration fee, cant remember what it was, but like $20-$30 to cover costs, got a t-shirt for it though. The St Johns is a Blast, run as fast as ya want, but dress accordingly, it got a bit chilly last year up there in DEC. We run the river about 20 miles, deliver the toys to the marines at the dock, then go next door for Lunch/drinks. Leave the restaurant at your own time, and run back to the hotel, run around the river, or some went to a local watering hole by water to watch a football game. I may head up on Friday this year, instead of getting up at 5AM to drive up there, the Hotel is cheap enough at like $60 per night, the ramp is good, and it is a good group of people to have fun with, boats of all types from 17' checkmate outboards to 38 Top Guns. There were a few outboard 28-32 cats like yours along last year.

Ramp is across the street from the hotel, not sure about slip reservations, or if they are even needed, may be able to just leave it in, the slips werent full last year, but the weather, and a rumor of it being cancelled kept the boats thin last year. The hotel isnt very fancy, but it is pretty clean, and parking is not really a problem.
