Great time!!! Thatks to Ryan for putting it together!!!
Perfect weather, perfect water and a bunch of way cool boats!
Tarpon Point was a nice stop. I don't know if they were expecting the huge turnout. I wasn't...
Only wish I could have talked to more people, it was a zoo at the marina and the ramp.
Thanks to freeze frame for the great shots. We bought a little of the chopper fuel
Looking forward to Petes shots from the Ringling bridge/pier.
He'll get some of our money too I'm sure.

Today was most certainly a wonderful day. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day with fair winds, plentiful 80-degree sunshine and a huge turnout which numbered over 80 boats; the heavens definitely shined down upon us in remembrance of Joey Gratton, Bob Morgan and JT Tillman.

It was great seeing everyone again today, a better New Year's Day could not have been had.

Ryan, thanks again for putting this together. It was a true pleasure to see you again.
