Question Sarasota, Long Boat Key Locals?

Went to Cafe on the Bay Sunday by car and on the way there, I went over a bridge and right below was a cove with a ton of boats. Looked like a fun place to party!!!!!( Water was very clear and waist deep) Does anyone have some insight on this? Also, there was a pass right there. What pass is it?

Lightbulb which one?

At the South end of long boat is New Pass by Gulf Wind it's just the COVE. There is another cove at the north end of LongBoat as well that is near Coquina beach/Channel both are nice. Most of the local Hi Perf guys go to the one on New Pass.

It must have been New Pass because it was real close because it was real close to St. Armands Circle. I'll have to look at some charts and look at GPS because I think I might ride on down there next week end. Which day is better Sat or Sun?

What color is your 302? I saw a yellow/black one at Shell Island a few weeks ago.

That would be the one. The next time you see me, stop and say Hello. Always some cold ones aboard.

Yes, it must have been New Pass. I remember years ago it completely filled up and had to be dug.

Here is a picture of our boat at Shell Island two weeks ago.

Cuda, Maximus, and Baja Daze

Are any of you going to Shell this week-end? I wanted to go to Long Boat Key but I'm having some weird trany problems. They're both using oil but I can't find any leaks. So I'm probably going to Shell until I remedy the problem.
