After following his adventures vicariously for a while I know about where it is and Nordhavn's don't even go there. Only a 20+ knot sport fish can get you there.

It's the place where we camp out in between fishing trips, or base out of when fishing. Right now it's been more relaxing then fishing which is fine with me. Love Bimini.Click image for larger version

That's a great thought. Why don't we wait till Don selects a date, and sabotage him with a Gulf Coast Rendezvous that will draw the East Coasters with offers of chips, dip, and boat shoe accessories.

It won't work. We have the whole Hopkins Carter store over here. A few nabs won't draw a crowd.

Well I think either coast will work. But they do say "West is best"
Was hoping to have the big boat in Fla this winter but a certain yard has pretty well killed that idea. So a land based we'll be.

I'm sure we'll be coming.
Not sure if floating or driving across the state, but we should be there.

Would love to meet some of the folk here.

No problem. I'd just save up my orders for a new Lofrans Tigress, a Rocna, and a Lehr outboard, and we'd probably get a Hopkins-Carter sponsorship. You know, we could meet in Okeechobee.

I give up. Parks will never forgive me for buying a Sarca Excel. He is so fickle. I probably can't get a cup of Cuban coffee in his store.

All is not lost. The only Sarca Excel known to be in Florida is on the bow of Moonstruck. That will be draw enough. Everyone will want to check it out.

I learned one lesson about these TF folks. If you come to one of these shin-digs, be sure to bring much more to drink than you were originally planning to bring. These TF guys are really thirsty!

Would be good to see more than just the San Francisco Bay/Delta group of TFers to meet socially. Some of our better halves:

The Florida West Coast competition is forcing me to go nuclear. Here is what will be waiting for you at Fort Pierce. Gentlemen, our welcome committee.
