Default TONTO ,The Keys and Crashbox GOD

WOW, just spent four days crewing on TONTO on the FPC Miami to Holiday Isle poker run, it was awesome. All the stories about Robert and Michael Freidman are true, their knowledge of the tiny, totally cool watering holes and how to sneak into them is amazing. Taking a 41 Apache and a 46 Skater into a place where they normally only see small center consoles is quite the experience, then as soon as ya step off the boat you realize everybody BEHIND the bar knows um, thank God cause we just made a hell of a scene! Anyway TONTO is a beautiful example of a serious hotrod Apache and Robert's ability to handle that thing in tight quarters with the wind howling WITHOUT TRANSMISSIONS IS AMAZING ! Our crew included BlondCigChick, her friend from CA Michele, my wife Mary and Jeff W. who took most of the pics I'm gonna try and post.

BTW I also met the famous Cigarette/OSO poster boy Rice Hauler, even with all his notoriety Rob is actually a really nice guy, go figure.

The last one is a typical Robert Picture, on the phone.

Jim, Glad to hear you had fun. We had a blast back in November with that group. You never know what happens next. I wish we were there.

Keep posting I'm sure there are some good ones.


Oh by the way nice Tonto Shirt. I still can't find mine. LOL

Ya think it was a little tight here at Snapper's ?!?! You should see how Robert gets this thing over the sandbar 300 feet from the dock, it's DAMN EXCITING

More Pictures tomorrow. JD

Thank you very much for the complement, it WAS great fun. And it was great fun having you and Mary aboard. You should have gotten a picture of the depth sounder on the way into Snappers, then everyone would know what you're talking about. Just don't tell anyone how many times we bumped the bottom, wouldn't want to ruin my reputation
BTW, MR.CIG
I was on the phone with our fearless leader Mr. Stu Jones making sure we still had dockage since we were coming in "after hours" Imagine that, having to find my way to Holiday Isle in the dark.
Robert

PS, notice the only other boat in that picture is a flats boat

Talking Robert you suck

Damn Robert it looks like you had a blast. Snappers is definitely one of my favorite bars in The Keys - we had the Cig parked right next to Tonto when we were there. Robert is the damn best tour guide in The Keys - BH
