We hit 6 of the stops in a pontoon boat in destin
Ft Walton beach area. A 30 ft boat can win a new ford f150 truck at Emerald Coast Poker Run. Rooms still available at the sheraton in Ft Walton.

130 registered boats as of today

the only really rough day at LOTO is Saturday, but if you run before 11 am and after 5 pm, you will be fine.

There is nothing that matches LOTO for the places to go, hardware to see and lifestyle of the midwest.

But then again, I am prejudiced!

I'm thinking about taking the boat to one of them and doing the PR. But I'd also like to have the best chance of selling it while I'm there for WAY less than what I'm asking for it just so I don't have to drag it back to Texas.

What do you guys think?
Bro,

Emerald Coast is run mostly in protected waters. It is as flat as you can get. Beautiful blue/green water. 2 or 3 days of salt water aren't going to hurt any boat. As far as Poker stops and fun parties you will not beat this event.

And Poker Run 388, here you go again. Commenting on something you know nothing about! You mean if you brought your Dads Eliminator to Florida....

LOTO and Emerald Coast are awesome events. I agree if you could do both that would be the best!

Good Luck with your decision.

More cats and fast boats in Florida than any Poker Run I have seen. Key West is obviously the biggest.

Take Care...

There's plenty of fresh water runs throughout the year, the salt's not for me..!

Have fun at LOTO, if you go..!!!!
I can't imagine having an OFFSHORE performance boat and being scared to run it in saltwater...
