Many awesome boats. I was at the dock prior to take off then drove down to the North Skyway Fishing Pier just in time to see the boats flying through on the way back from Egmont.

Mike A, which boat was yours??

We were the silver Donzi 38 ZRC. We actually were on the south side of the main span running next to the black Cigarette on the way back from Egmont.

OK GLH......

Spill the beans already! Why was there a Federal Marshal Sticker on your boat Fri. Night into Sat. Morning?


There has to be a good story that goes with it! Was it Ginoesque or more Bobthebuilder?

It was from a balance owed to the Boat US outfit that did the work to bring my boat back in April 2010 when it got disabled off of Sanibel.

I assumed the costs were covered by my insurance policy but my insurance company has a fine-print clause that limited the amount for payment on recovery work. Once I was informed of the balance and verified on my side I satisfied the balance and went on with my weekend.

Bill Pyburn had the best line when we hooked up at lunch and I had taken most of the stickers off... He said... "Looks like you lost your sponsor!"
(Kept a sticker on the lid for prosperity, you can see it on the picture from FPC below)

Ahhhh,
I never got a chance to say hello to you while we were there. It was a great run!
Sorry it cost you some money. My friends and I had friendly wagers as to what it was for: Missed inspection stop while trailering, midnight bale fishing, transporting midgets across state lines.....
