There were two rollovers and one blowover in the races, but no one got hurt, and the show was awesome. Even Monday, when the weather looked dreary, actually turned out to be a nice day over in the Sassafras River. We even got some sun!

Ain't boatin' great?

Are you going to "Rock The Bay" in two weeks..........?

We'll be there with the usual gang of Skaters.

Nice meeting everyone ... we had a good weekend !!! After cleaning out the cooler it appeared that a lot of beer was consumed Sunday afternoon.Sorry to hear about the grape juice spill BT. Chuck wins the anchor toss competition hands down... 10 points .John try to remove your shoes next time you board BT's boat ... he's a little anal about that ...

First off, I don't see what the mud-tracking contoversy was all about. Everyone had their bath mats out and was planning to wash them anyway...

Rich: Sorry. After a summer of extensive boating (doubled the hours on the Formula), work has finally caught up to me, and I will be out of town for RTB. Besides, the Lawn Dart is still undergoing renovations (like another unique boat I've heard of...). Have fun anyway.

737: The anchor toss was an unfortunate episode with all the wind and current shifts. Maybe that's why the Bayliner pulled their hook and moved away - they realized that they were within my striking distance ("Hey - You scratched my anchor!"). Still, I was very proud of the range I got with the little plow anchor. Just glad I didn't follow it into the water or bust my a$$ on the foredeck.

Sywayz: Thanks. You can't really see how reflective the silver is unless you see this paint in real life. 400SS? Yeah, baby...
Retired! Boating full-time now.
