Fly down and the room is free! My dad has a 23' Proline that he doesn't use enough. It needs the deck to get some blood on it. I might be retired by then...

Kind offer there Barry but I do not think I am going to be doing much travelling as long as all the restrictions are in place.
Made one trip recently and all the BS involved just about screwed up the trip for me. Not trying to make any sort of political statement I just found dealing with the crap more than I want to mess with.

I understand! The only traveling I do these days is with a travel trailer.

Rules are posted as is the way to register. Don't do it yet. I need to figure out why the coupon isn't working. I had a WordPress theme compatible problem with the sales plug-in and had to switch themes. All of that took my non-webmaster self most of today. It looks better and more importantly it now works!

Bill, aka wpstarling, has agreed to making sure everyone gets their boats parked correctly. The park only allows electric motors on the water if entering through the park. No boat rides for most of you...

For Sunday, there is a great place close by called the Wacissa River. It's fairly quite and spring fed or Lake Talquin. Lake Seminole is huge but about an hour away.

I got the coupon figured out. Send me an IM and I'll send you the coupon code for free registration. I'm also going to share it with Jeff and Reid as well as wpstarling. We are looking forward to meeting those who can make it! :D

We had a good time with the cardboard boat race but only one unfinished homebuilt boat so not much of a show. Reid had to back out due to fuel and my date was the same as the local colleges' graduations. Hotel prices were out of sight! 8O

Thanks to Bill (wpstarling) for manning my boat and answering questions while I ran the "boat" race!

It was a blast! There were some really cool boats and lots of effort for sure.

Sorry I couldn't bring my boat, the hubs and tires for the trailer took a lot longer to come in than expected and I couldn't get it ready.

If you do it again next year hopefully my boat will be done 😁

I thought it was very well done Barry, nice job! 👍
Boats restored: 1973 Glastron CV16, 1990 Proline 17 CC, 1993 Bass Boat
Boats built: custom 15ft flat bottom skiff, Soon-to-be-built TX18 (originally dborecky's build)
