LOL. No problem, thats about how I figured it went. I'm nervous going new places towing my small boat without being able to scout out stops ahead of time so I can't imagine hauling a monster like that.

And I think you said around Labor Day that you were not going to take Freedom and only use the Cig for this run. It looks and sound like you are glad you had it down there.

if you have a fast connection click the number in the bottom corner and put it on 1080 and then make it full screen to get a better picture.

Yes, I know it well. I was actually the person that you stopped and tried to help a couple of years back at key west in Nov. We were in the all white Motion. We had just taken some photos and busted the helmet on the drive. You were the only one that headed towards us and offered help. BTW Thanks again. If you do the Miami Boat Show Run I will stop and say hello, maybe you can take me for a blast.

Cool and I remeber! I have a Cig at TNT and I will have it there for the Miami run. Its all inside anyway and I'm hoping to use it more. I've only used it two time in a year.
