One Last Florida Gasp Story – Southbound Cruise Pics!
Thanks to fellow Woody Boater Troy for sending in some great shots from the annual Southbound Cruise in Florida around the big Lake Dora weekend. Which by the way can be milked into around a three week vacation. Lots of cruising, Vintage Boat Races, the show, and more cruising. WOW. Plan ahead for next year, its never to early. Woohooo only 350ish days away! UGH!
I probably should have sent you some more information along with these pics.
The first one is Jr. The boat has made the St Johns River cruise more than 25 times.
And this one is actually Doll Baby. Dr. Wayne is the owner and I think he was from Texas. Has actually taken this boat to the Bahamas and want to go to Cuba in it.
He hails from Palm Beach and Arkansas.
Great pictures…great time.
It was you who are from Texas!
Dang, things get fuzzy when you combine the 3 B’s (Beer, Bourbon, Boating).
The white sided picnic boat is a modern Hugh Saint from Florida.
Here is lunch at the Outback Crab Shack.
Jim, your lunch looks great except it seems to be missing the beer!
He already drank the beer!
This is not the end….there was a Northbound cruise after the Tavares show. Call Gerald Dake for comments and pictures.
Troy, thanks for the photos, and for a memorable week of river cruising with you & Sandi in
Thanx for the correction on the “Forest Johnson Prowler” to a modern Hugh Saint picnic launch. The model boat builder who had a booth at the show amazed me by identifying its designer Chas. Jannace, by examining an embroidered picture of it on my shirt. It has many features resembling the Prowler. The builder lives a couple of miles from Jannace in Marland
