I met him and spoke to him at length a few times. What a great man! He certainly is a legend in the offshore community! We'll certainly miss him. My condolences to their family.

Kayackers and other type rowing craft paddling their way up or down the intercoastal waterway IN THE CHANNEL. It's a big waterway folks, get out of the way of the powerboaters that need the channel!

Who has used BoatPix?

Who has used BoatPix? Were you happy with the pictures? It seems a little pricey, although I get why it's expensive. They flew around my new to me Formula this weekend, taking lots of pictures.
