It’s A Fantasy Weekend Here On Lake Dora! And You’re Stuck In The Cold.

FLA 2017 Mfine

Bacon & M-fine A fantastic way to start the day!

Perfect weather, massive amount of boats and very happy people, what else could you possibly ask for?  All the slips were sold out a month ago, and the crowds are expected to be large. We are half way sold out at the store, and Scarlet is all soaked up as expected. All that’s left to try is my annual Chicken on a stick, and a nice loooong boat ride through the Dora canal to the palm gardens for a deep fried anything. And you are? Starring out the window wondering why you are not here. And everyone else is here. So sad, so very very sad!

OK then, let’s move on to us here! WOOOHOOO! LETS GET THIS PARTY STARTED! WOO WOO!

    M-fine really should name one of his boats Bacon. You’re already killing me with the boat pictures.

    So jealous! Can’t wait to get back down to that show one of these days. I’m confused about Scarlet. Did that used to be Suzie? Who owns Scarlet now? M-Fine? I know Matt has the 25′ now, is that at the show?

    Actually I just woke up and finally got my americano going plus tuning in to WB. It dawns on me you are 3000 miles away, I am looking at the Pacific out the window on a sunny day.
    Yes I am torn, a little bit.

    m-fine does need to get ANOTHER boat and name it Miss Bacon!

    Scarlet is the boat formerly named as Susie, and it is now owned by Jimmy.

    Here is a sign that reminds me that the weather back home in Canada sucks. We found the sign at the Hideaway on Lake Harris. Thanks to Gerry Wilkin for the boat ride.

    Beautiful day on the lake Mount Dora with the exception of the wind and the fact that my boat broke down five minutes after launch, think it’s a bad fuel pump, having one overnighted, hopefully will get half of the day tomorrow in, wish me luck.
    Also a big thank you out to Dave VanNess for all of his help on the phone today.

    Two shots of float planes in two days. Combine that with beautiful wooden boats, and great looking engines! It is truly a “fantasy weekend” for me. I hope you are all drinking plenty for me. From looking at the pictures, I’m hoping plenty of Corona.
