The suns shining with a predicted high of 81 today in Fort Pierce. After the rain we had last night and this morning, we should be good for a few days.

Let the games begin.

Sounds like a fun group of folks coming into Ft. Pierce for the Geezer Gathering. Have fun, keep notes and take lots of pictures!

Wishin' I was there!

Well the Trawler Forum gathering is over, and frankly a bit of a relief. Not sure I could take another day of drinking and boat parties. The marina was very smart to give the group their own dock with a locked gate. Really wasn't prepared for the skinny dipping and pole dancing (is it pole or piling dancing when the ladies gyrating around a floating dock piling while getting less clothed). Would like to thank Don Moonstruck for providing the open bar. The four kegs on tap was truly a smart move, less empty bottles and cans to deal with. Would also like to thank the forum owners for the Hawaiian pig roast last night. Still can't believe the marina allowed a barbecue pit with the pig on a spit on the floating dock, an amazing site!

It's very enlightening what you can learn from an intoxicated moderator. Larry told me................................................ ........................ I can't believe they're going to do that to him!

Sorry some of you weren't able to make it. Just to clear up the CNN report, nobody was changed on Tuesday night with regard to the trawler racing incident as nobody actually had to spend the night in the hospital. Moonstruck won all 3 races (going to have to handicap next year to make it fair).

Someone will be posting pics (after some serious editing to protect the identity of the barmaids). So that's more or less what happened; I might be off a little on the details. Hope the marina is willing to have us back next year. After all, the Coasties didn't blame the marina for the racing and the fire department prevented the fire from doing any real damage, other than those 3 sailboats. Bet they won't make a crack about Michelle's dog again.

See you all again next year (it will take that long to recover).

Ted

I will be leaving Stuart at first light tomorrow (Friday) heading north. Unfortunately Fort Pierce is too close for my first overnight. I need to crack on to get back to Jacksonville on Sunday.

Have fun and be safe.

I'm really sorry I couldn't make it. It was just too soon after the boat show.

I will be stopping in to Ft. Pierce on Tuesday to deliver a Vulcan anchor to a beautiful Krogan Express that is docked at Harbour Isle Marina.

If any of you are still in Ft Pierce you might want to go by and take a look at it.

No worries Parks, West Marine showed up with some freebies and picked up the slack.

I was impressed when they made all of us Lifetime Corporate Spokespersons with that 75% discount on all products.

RT, I'm very sorry you didn't make it up, over, here..... I mean there. We could have used you as the color commentator for the trawler races and a more impartial judge at the barmaid wet tee shirt contest. Scratch that; that never happened.

TF SE Florida Gathering is in the books

Great gathering, guys. The wrap up will have to wait until I can get a WIFI connection fast enough to upload photos. The pictures are being run by the censors now. Until then the suspense will linger like a thick fog in the air.

Lol, just remember Don, I have the originals....


It was a great few days, we got the land yacht on plane coming back and were back onboard for a late lunch. Now we have to work out how to convince Baker to hold one in Texas and Larry to do one in SW Florida. That would be the ultimate, perpetual mini loop!

Too bad, Capt. Jack. You were expected and missed. As you are the only one that can control Larry, you were needed. I had you slated to be the short bus driver.
