Kind of bugged me,(midweek, no drinking etc, wife and kids with me, hardly anyone on the water) like they were looking to check me out or ticket for something. They finally must have gotten bored of waiting and took off, but it still bugged me to sit there being watched like some jailbird out on work detail. BTW nice boat 288, will look for you next time we are up there.
Thanks, ill post a pic of it when I get it back from mitcher t today, had quite a few things changed/added.... marine patrol does that on south higgins but they are very cool.

Did that to me also except I HAD been drinking so I stayed there as long as it took until he left, not worth the risk... in the meantime 288 was holding down the under cabin face down hahaha
