Yes I'm talkin about your drives...Never hit the bottom of the boat.If you guys would look sometime when you go in there you will see the trenches other dig.It's all soft but there are spots right in the channel that are very shallow.I really don;t like to run my drive over halfway up for any extended period.You have about 200 yards of idle in this shallow.Hence my tendency to touch the prop down.

On the Booze thingy...Act like an ass and they will notice you.Drunk and falling down is a good way to get arrested out there...as is holding any type of beer can/bottle or such.If you leave a Beer can etc. in plain site on your boat they can board and look around....I've know many that got in trouble but it was for the above mentioned reasons.It is almost a $500 fine for possesion out there so be smart.I carry plenty of Liquor in my cabin but it stays INSIDE!...We use little sports bottles with flip lids and such.

Marion and Lake are the two counties that split the Glen almost in the middle.There is a sign that shows the respective sides of jurisdiction.I can't remember which county but one is far more picky than the other.We usally tie-up in the middle away from either shore and make a sortof lagoon behind the boats.Makes for a cozy nighttime party spot.

The boys also leave somewhere in between 9-10 pm.Alot changes after that.

Volusia actually has jurisdiciton as well since it is "part of" Lake George. In Marion, we only will go there at the request of another agency. DEP or Game & Fish could also show as well. The two bodies of water that Marion County is concerned with are Lake Weir and the Rainbow River near Dunnellon. Marion also only has 2, two Marine officers and they exclusively patrol the two above mentioned areas.

I can't speak for the policies of the Lake & Volusia, but as with anything in law enforcement, the attitude of the "citizen" goes a long way to how they are dealt with. On a major holiday, there should be plenty of scumbags to attract the LEO's attention. Don't be blatant about it & don't act like a complete ass, and you will be fine.

I could be wrong but I have never seen VSO or the DEP inside the Glen...however FFWC is common.Marine patrol is another oddity to see there.It's the same guys year after year for the most part.They do watch from the wooded area of the park so that could be there grounds.

Anyways, Almost every single boat out there has alcohol of some sort on board...very few get in trouble.

Shore, I know you told me, but rather than look, what boat are you going to be in?

We'll be looking for you. I'm not sure what day or days we will be there. Most likely in the Minx, but maybe one day in the Formula. If you see us, just holler "Cuda". There are a lot more Joe's on the water than Cudas.
