Sounds like an epic week. I'm very much looking forward to meeting so many fellow TFers.
Wifey B: Sounds so refreshing to hear you guys talk about doing something during the trip other than drink beer.

Maybe Flywright will be a good influence.

Hi Parks looks like a great boat, offer less and see what happens. Spent some money and be happy SS is going to be paying you soon too!

WifeyB. You seem to be misinformed, we will drink beer the entire trip. No designated drive for us, these guys live dangerously. ��

Parks, I have had the pleasure since 2000 to be front row seat for these epic launches. Run a 47 passenger tour boat, the launches especially at night are awesome. The space X boaster landings are special.

Where's the boat located Parks? Should you decide to go look at her and she is at Ellis in SW Harbor, you have a free bed and beers at our house. It's only an hour or less from us. Although, we will be in FL part of Dec and all of Jan and Feb.

Are you going to be there in Ft. Pierce?

That's the first time I ever heard that. Clearly you do not know me.

The boat is in Maine. If I get up that way, we'll get together. I made the mistake of shipping Possum south. I won't miss the opportunity to bring this one South on her own bottom.

Al, I plan to bring my short bus down for trips to Marine Liquidators.

For those coming early the food truck invasion is supposed to be on Saturday, February 17.
