One of the things on my list of "must do's" is to tow the Cig. down to FL and run it in some "Blue Water"
Nancy and I were thinking of maybe doing it in the spring. I can't think of a better atmosphere for a couple of rookies than a FPC run. I've heard that they are very organized and that would be awesome!! Are there stretches were you can open it up and run? Does anyone know how much it costs for one of their runs? If you don't want to post it, then PM me.

Thanks,

Craig

Follow the link below and you can get info on the runs and pricing. Most of the poker runs are usually in the $400-$500 range from what I recall.

This run was $700 for the entry but the rest is where it gets expensive. If you make your own reservations and arrangements you can usually save $$.

What do you get for your $700 ??

I am contemplating a run with the FPC sometime before the end of April.

I know there are exceptions and alot of good people with expensive offshore performance boats but if you get a bunch of grown men in fast boats , get ready to battle egos! Hey Im rich , I run my company the way I want , I own this boat and I'll do what I want. Poker Runs - Offshore Races - it's all the same , the more expensive the boat usually the bigger ego. Why else would they buy such a money pit? The single engine guy's seem to be more grounded. Anyone agree? BH
