I am very interested in coming , BUT , I need a little info on getting my 39' cat there and into the water ! It is 12' wide . What kind of problems am I going to have with what roads . Remeber ,I am 3 1/2 FEET wider then legal ! Also WHat about launching it . I would prefer to lift it if they had a reasonable price on the lift ,if not I need a real good ramp ( Wide & VERY long ) THis boat is extremely unfriendly to ramps . I have to have a good one for sure ! YOu say the fork lift is free , Can they work a deal on a travel lift . I don't mind paying something but most places are crazy !!

THat is when I get the motors back in anyway !
I would like to attend . PLease advise me in anyway on getting there in one peice with no tickets, no traffic jams and launching the boat in one peice !

THank you , JOE

As Bryan sez, Marina Shores Boatel/Marina is providing "free" forklift services in support of the event. They will also stow your trailer overnight if necessary.

As far as roads for a 12' beam are concerned, I beleive all routes are capable of handling the rig, you might go ahead and check into a temporary permit. We'd love to have you down.

We have some really good lift capable marina's in the area including Newport News and Hampton since we have a lot of really big yachts/fishing rigs here. Another option would be to drive it down.....

Let me know more specifically what you're requirements are and I'll do the research...

Marina Shores will provide free lift in and out. They are able to use the forklift or put slings on the fork lift.

http://www.marinashores.com

All roads from your area to Marina Shores are at least 4 lane highways. They bring in some pretty big rigs there, so I am 99.99% sure you will have no problems. (rt95, to 64, to 13)


GPS co-ordinates for Marina Shores: N36 54.312, W076 04.00

Come on down!!!!

Any more OSO'ers up for REAL offshore boating?????

Sounds like a fun event. I am not familiar with that area but I need to talk to my State Farm Ins agent to see if my coverage extends to the Atlantic for the "Offshore" portion of the run.

Ins companies have designated the Chesapeake Bay area and tributaries as the region I belong to but I don't know how particular they would be in the Norfolk region.

How far out would we go?

Not far out at all!
Part of the run is a couple mile stretch paralleling the beach. No more than maybe 1/2 to 3/4 mile max. The who idea is to be seen by the beach goers!
Imagine if we can get a helo to take a pic of your boat with the resort strip in the background!
