Re: Helm leak issue

Re: Happy Dad's day :)

SeaBiscuit, I was just down the road from you in Marathon. I was going to head home to Venice, about 6 1/2 hrs but on the way to the ramp to pick up the boat a guy did this to my trailer.....Finding a catamaran trailer is proving difficult.

Beautiful boat and it looks like you had good weather. It was like the dolphins were giving you a parade to help celebrate the new boat. :D

Re: To much Rain

I hope it clears. We have a trip planned for all next week at Marathon. I would hate to rent that condo just to watch it blow.

Re: 3 day snapper season

Nice catch....too bad the recreational guys only get 3 days. On top of the Feds decision to give the private boater a ridiculously short season, seeing that they are the taxpayers that are funding everything including the wages and perks for the Federal workers, they chose to make 2 of the 3 days wo...
