I was asking because if you launch at 44, you can park your trailer here at my place if you want, and we can run you back to your boat. I live about a mile away.

Dean, Joe
I'm planning a trip up there next month but it wont be on Mem weekend. I cant handle crowds, and I'll prob want to go up to Jax. How far from around Sanford/Deland to Jax? I figure a half day run if not to many no wake zones. You gonna be around there any other time?

Dan, I'm guessing 90 to 100 miles or so by boat. It's about 110 from my house to the bridge on the river at I295 by car.

Cuda,
Thanks for the offer. I'll see how launching goes @ Hontoons....

Dan,
This is a once in 10 year boat trip for us. We hardly ever put the boat on the trailer these days. Just wanted to do something different and that's close to home. I too, am thinking about driving up to jacksonville, via the St, Johns, but I don't know if it will be this trip.

You can most defintily idle throught the channel side at even the busiest times...the other side near the park is a no-no...even depth wise I am pushing it with my little 23'.

I'm attempting to revive the old Bay...took a few minutes but she fired up but still no idle..LOL...took the carb off finally and Dear god I Have no idea how it even ran.The bowls are nasty green and something made a cucoon of sorts on one side..Seriuosly a cucoon.One of the Jets was clogged and the needles even had build-up.I'm not even sure I can clean all the crap out...ARGH!!..anyone got a Quadracrap they don't need..I sure could us it.

Dean,
If we are around for that weekend, we usually head up. If so I'll let you know ahead of time.
