Default Boating SW Florida style, in Jim's 30 Skater LS7

My buddy Jim and his 30 Skater LS7 from MI, our friend Donnie, and I, went boating
before the boat leaves FL tomorrow, for MI, for the summer season.

It was just another beautiful day, here in SW Florida. Bright blue sunny skies, 84 degrees
air temp, 80 degrees Gulf temp, but blowing like crazy (for here). West 15-20 knots,
seas 2-4.

We went from Jims place, down Charlotte Harbor, West to Boca Grande Pass, North up
through Gasparilla Sound, past Placida, North through Lemon bay, and up to Manasota
Key. Back and then to Fishermans Village for lunch, before heading up river to the ramp.

The trip was a total of 83 miles.

Eric,

Yes it is.

Tom (38 Fountain) and I are discussing a beach run this weekend. Keep an eye on the FMO section, I will post info if we go.

Nice Jim!

Like I said yesterday, your boat got to 100+ way quicker than mine. And you had a lot of RPM left.

Those were some crazy turns, way up river in the marsh.
It is hard to see, but your GPS display is set to 800ft.
