you can count on that we're in ------ hotel room at the Vinoy is booked..... just not sure which boat I'm bringing yet.
I FEEL PRESSURED!!!!! LOL.....

Joe

PS: Please tell me you guys have worked out something w/ the crane guys, better than Sarasota. It was $700 bucks, I believe, for the in-and-out ----- WTF?

If the cost is the same.... I'll just tell them Stu said he's sponsoring all of the Skater's in-and-out's!


All the best,

Joe

The only "in-and-outs" that I sponsor have nothing to do with boats - LMAO

See you in St.Pete's.

Docks are just about full at the Vinoy.
73 allocated so far - if you intend being there LET US KNOW.
Boats drifting in the marina can cause problems !!!!!!

we've decided to bring my 36 skater..... so, i've been trying to find a crane that can lift me in and out, with the "out" being the problem. most of the marina's ive spoken with are closed on the weekends, for the sat or sun lift-out.

any ideas?

Or, a dry stack marina w/ a forklift to lift me off (and on) the trailer?

thanks,

joe
