I was out yesterday. Put in at Curry Park in West Palm, went out through Palm Beach Inlet...out about 2 miles and North to Jupiter Inlet. Made that "Manatee Zone" run South to Peanut and anchored for about an hour on the sand bar. Water is still warm enough. It was running about 3~5 outside out of the NE...nice little starboard quarter head sea. I set the Formula to run fairly flat at about 30 mph with the tabs...comfortable ride.

You just can't beat a tried and true "Old School" design.





As you can tell being from Pompano...the last pic was taken at the 14th Street Ramp.

We got to get together some time...where do you do most of your running? I trailer so I'm mobile.
