It’s Sausage Day, Made Up From The Scraps Of The Lake Dora Show.

Owen Turner is negotiating one heck of a hat deal!

Well, it was a week ago we arrived in Taveres and were ready for some t shirt sell’n and water fun’n. Wow. Time goes by fast…until its around October and then it just stops. but as we always do, we have at least one day of fun unconnected photos that tell the true fun of the event.

Oh… Jack, really? Photo Brian Keen

Nothing really makes sense as a story, other than a fun way to see the smaller details of a fun event. So without further adoooo, doooo…


What in the heck is wrong?


Woohooo! photo Shannon Knight

      Here is Plaidtastic. EZ on the eyes this way. Starting to get the new Penn Yan set up. If someone needs that vintage toilet it came home.

    A couple of things. First it seems like a lot of gauges for that toilet, Dad promised to take that little girl on the boat not that it would be in the water or for a ride and lastly…..if the Boatress is going to drink a glass of wine that huge then keep her IN the boat or put a life jacket on her please.

    Do most people tow their boats with the cover on or off? I heard if the cover is on while towing that it can cause dammage to the finish on the boat?

      This is an ongoing debate and depends on the material of the cover. We have a flanel lined inner cover. But to be honest if the weather is good, I leave the cover off. But then there is the possibility of road damage.

        While towing our Riva Super Aquarama, a new trailer tire exploded and damaged the cloth cover. Instead of the amazing glass like finish that Sandro and the guys at RivaWorld applied!

    Yes I went to the bar!

    If you get over to Nokomis make sure you visit these fine ladies in the Tiki Hut. They are a little heavy handed also.

    Matt: The real story at Dora this year was the seaplane that flipped and was upside down between Wooton Park and the Harrison’s house. Did you not get any pictures of that?

      Troy, Saturday the Jones Brothers Flying service had a table out in front of their cool old Florida house/office there and the lady in charge pointed out it had been dragged to the area in front of the Key West Motel, She says the pilot that had the plane out that day did not even own it and had it out when there was wind warnings out for small planes and it flipped over from a gust of wind. A few people tried to overturn it at its present site by lifting up the tail and as it came up somewhat the tail just folded up. She also said neither the owner nor the pilot that day could afford full coverage insurance so they only have liability. Where we are from the epa/tva would have made them remove it the same day because of the fluids leaking out. There were boats around it most everytime we passed by it sometimes police boats. I have flown with them a couple of times, makes me wonder if they have enough insurance. By the way we had a great time and really enjoyed the beach music band and the food Friday and Saturday night.

    We kept talking about it, but it kept being under and then all of a sudden was up. I know a part broke off. I think the YNOT gang has some photos.
