Default Miami area performance boat charters??

Usually when we're in Fort Lauderdale we charter the 38' Sonic Crazy Gregg, are there any other boats for charter in that area??? We're looking at putting our plans together for the Miami boat show in February and thought we might try something new... Hopefully OSO will have another good party this year!!!!

Do the OSO members have a get together by boat during the miami show??

Call the Boca Raton Hotel in Boca and ask for the raceboat extension. They run a 35' Motion with twin 500hps out of there which is available for charter. I don't know how much they charge but I see the boat all the time taking people out for rides on it. I believe the boat is set up for driver/throttleman operation so that you can actually drive the boat.

I believe Greg passed away, I think I remember reading it in the Sun Sentinel down here.

Crazy Gregg did pass away in February. The black older sonic they use for parasailing. Here is the website for Crazy Gregg.... http://www.speedboatrides.com/

They also have (or had) a 33 Powerplay. Call either the hotel or I know they have a picture ad in the yellow pages.

I ran the powerPlay a few years ago I think it was called Something Breeze Charters......Charlie is the owner-captain. $350 per hour for the Play the cat was on order at the time he thought it would be closer to $500 per hour. If you find out let me know!
