Little Palm is way cool.The old movie P.T.109 was filmed there.They serve the best demi-glos, bar none.Money buys you stiff service....Throw the best insult you can come up with and your server will say"Thank you sir ...can I get you anything else?"

Default Boating or Poker Run

Thanks guys, I will have to look over my plans and make some changes. I am staying in Miami, fri,sat & sun nites and was planning on going to keywest on Monday. I already have a hotel room and boat slip at the Galeon marina. I can change these plans. I have purchased the charts and have just ordered the blue charts for my garmin. I am still concerned about the waters though. I will make the call very soon. thanks for all the help and information. Hope to see you guys at the boat show. Thanks

steet, Tonto and Steve David helped me out tremendously this spring when I did my first trip. It was the boating adventure of a lifetime. Tonto hit the nail on the head with EVERY STOP he recomended. The water was intimidating at first with being able to see the bottom all te way to KW. but you will get used o it after a while. I ran outside of Hawks channel in 800 feet of water going down because there wasnt a wave to be seen. Coming back was 5-6 footers in the channel, charts worked good but water colors were a good indicater for me. I wouldnt recomed the inside at all unless you are with others !!! 5-6 feet of water at best. Tonto has all the coordinates for the gps and they are in your charts also Dont make the run all in one day. You will miss all the fun stopping at all the tiki bars and little villages
