Karen Harrison Showed Some Bikers A Good Time In Florida.

Fellow Woody Boater Karen Harrison

With about a week away from Lake Dora fun, this story should be a fun reminder of what the rest of the world is doing. HAVING FUN! And Paul and Karen know how to do that for sure, even breaking down is fun with them. Paul sent us in this great story that happened the other day. Karen BTW, is one of the finest boaters I know. Amazing!!!!

Party on the Ledo deck!

So, Karen has 5 girlfriends down for 5 days. On Friday, while I am on my way to Amelia Island in an estrogen avoidance mission, the 6 of them pile into the Skiff for a day of boating.

It’s called Sunnyland for a reason!

Rumble rumble

Karen takes them up through the lock and into Lake Griffin, where they decide to lunch at an esteemed backwater dive bar called Pirates Oasis (not making this up).  LINK TO FACEBOOK HERE. – It’s located in a tiny channel off the lake and it’s very tight. It’s also filled with bikers and bubbas.

Looks like heaven to me, even when it gets hot as hell.

Pulling in

They pull into this place and as usual, Karen expertly maneuvers and docks the boat as hordes of bikers watch in befuddled bemusement – evidently they were expecting a different outcome.

Look closer. Jaw meet floor!


They watch as 6 woman disembark the 58 year old vessel and take their seats at the establishment. Much commentary, camaraderie and photography ensues, and shooters are promptly delivered to them.

Oh boy! thats not gonna end well. HA

OHhhhhhhhhhhhh, I want! WANT!!!!!!! ( Down 14 lbs)

Party here

The gals loved it, the bikers loved it and remarked they’d never seen anything like that happen before.

WOOHOOOO – Just a week away!


And as a bonus to the story, Here is an article that seals the deal for me, I AM SO GOING NOW. IT’S PERFECT!

    Even when you spell things right it is wrong. Notice the sign is spelled “Pirats Oasis” not Pirates Oasis. The name seems rather fitting with the notice of closure.

      John you should skip your meeting on Wednesday and get there early. We could make a trip over on Wednesday before the events begin.

    People who eat at Pirats Oasis are now immune to The corona virus among others, that is, if they survive that meal. Those ladies sure made those biker’s day and mine as well. Wonder if there’s a male version where we could drop in and make some ladies swoon, lol. Yea, In your dreams.

    The patrons at the Pirats Oasis were gawking because they had never before seen a boat that wasn’t a 1979 pontoon.
