    I registered. Hunkered down with a pile of snow on the way. Making stern poles. Gonna miss the Norge ski jump today. 51 days and counting. Maybe 45. I’m going early.

    70 slips is pretty good! How many did the pre-hurricane setup accommodate?

    I missed yesterday’s story, but if there is an open dock slip, maybe I could pick up that 59 Carver on my way down.

      As I said yesterday. Better have a Police escort when you pick it up.

    m-fine, always good to do your first launch of a new boat at Tavares. There is plenty of help and Matt’s camera to capture the event.

    Rich and I registered early last week. We’ll be staying on the St. John’s River in Welaka in a condo with a boat slip for the Torpedo. Heading for the show late Wednesday or early Thursday so we can get to some of the meetings. We are doing the South Bound River Cruise with Guy but will be skipping the Thursday lunch run in order to get to the meetings on Thursday. We are also snowed in right now with more coming an REALLY COLD weather. Can’t wait to get out of Wisconsin.

    The year before the hurricane, I drove down from Georgia to visit the show. I left at 7am, and arrived around 11:30 on Sunday. Much to my disappointment most of the boats were already gone. That will be my last trip to this show. I think the show needs boats to fill the docks, not just docks.
