Hope your chair floats, and your cooler has an outboard!!!!

Bring the family down to lauderdale if its nice, and go to one of the restaurants along the ICW, Shooters(Fort Lauderdale), or The Cove (Deerfield Beach). I was out Saturday afternoon, passed a few Cig's Sittin ontheir lifts, A BIG old Sutphen on the lift, 36something cat, was runnin side by side with a Sonic 45SS(in the slow zone of course) nice young blonde driving daddys boat while mom and pop relaxed in the back seat, comin back north passed a 26 Sonic full of half naked chickeys, and Two powerplays runnin down to Hillsboro Inlet. All in about two hours.

Oh wait a minute, Did you mean this coming weekend???? They will ALL be in the keys!!!!!!!!!!

Dyno,
Yeah, we'll all be in the keys this weekend...
But...
I might be heading out to test some new props Friday afternoon.... if you'd like to come along....
I'll probably launch at Haulover marina (miami).
Miami and Ft.Lauderdale both get their share of muscle boats...
We attempted to run with two cats and a 42 OL two weeks ago....

Haulover gets a lot of boats through the ramps on the weekend....

During the 90 or so days of summer maybe,

Seriously, you do have some fabulous boating going on, I'll never forget the sight of 2000 plus spectator boats at last year's Grand Haven race coming through the channel after the race!

Here' s some good spots down here:
Everglades inlet in Fort Lauderdale
Hillsboro inlet in Pompano/Hillsboro Beach
Boca inlet in Boca Raton
Haulover in North Miami
Government Cut in Miami
Depending on the day, you can see some major power at any of these places whether weekend or weekdays!
