Shor,
So what your saying is that I will DRAG my 35' boat on the bottom @ the entrance to the Glen, no matter where I come thru the channel?
Only 2 more days!

Not sure what you draft on your 35' and assume you're just talking about dragging the skeg. I don't think you'd ever get shallow enough to touch the fiberglass. I'd think if you trim your engines up you may just drag the skeg a bit in one area. I have outboards on my 29', so I have no problem, but my other boat that I've brought back there in the past is a 22' I/O and never had any problems dragging anything either.

My boat drafts 31' trimmed down. I didn't trim up and I never dragged. I'm sure if you trim up a little you won't drag.

Hell, my 27pc drafts 38 to 40 inches with the drives trimmed up and I didn't drag, just make sure as your approaching the island going into the run that you stay between the pvc markers (and going in at night their almost impossible to see if you don't know what your looking for) but they are there.
As far as drinking in the glen itself,,,,highly illegal so take solo cups and low profile and no one will bother you, their just trying to find a way to keep some sort of control over the rowdy drunks.

DO NOT walk around with any booze what so ever. they will look in your cup. If you must drink there, stay in your boat and be very discreet. keep an eye out for po po. You will get arrested for possesion if caught. If your loud and obnoxious music blaring and drinking, your done. If you are quiet, eating lunch on your boat with your wife and being discreet you'll be fine....

But yes they can and will arrest you if you are walking around with any booze.

I'll be there Monday morning, hoping to launch around 8:30am. Someone please try to save me a spot (like that's possible). I'll be in a 28" Active Thunder white/purple, "PsychoActive". I'll post a pic up later.


Regarding alcohol, I work part time with the Marion County S.O. The Glen is a 3 county jurisdiction, I'm 99% positive we won't be there (we only go by request). What I've been told by our Marine officers is that if you have a cabin, head, bed, all the **** that constitues a second home: you can drink & have alcohol. This is a "home" to you and unless there is a crime being committed, they cannot search your "home" without a warrant.

Largely, as mentioned above, if you keep it in solo cups & don't act like an ass, you won't get messed with. Keep it on your boat, keep the liquor in the cabin, you should be fine. There will be plenty of a-holes wading around with beer bottles & acting stupid to gain the cops attention.

Of course, your milage may vary.....

Andy,
Sounds good, I doubt we'll be up there early enough to get a spot either. Maybe we'll raft up out in the LAKE!

Gator Aid Sports bottles with a few shots of Gator Aid Removed and a few shots of Absolut added works real well.

I ( I mean a friend of mine) had a whole conversation with a Marine Patrol with one in my (his) hand.

No problems
