Thanks, Oliver. You're great to offer. Everyone wanted it the day after the Miami Show. Some will be coming in over the weekend, and you would be welcome to come then. Or you could come in the afternoon. Probably Tuesday would be best for that. Anyway, hope to see you.

Here are some restaurant choices

This one is a long walk, but good.
12A Buoy - 181 Photos - Seafood - Fort Pierce, FL - Reviews - Yelp

This one is at the marina
http://tikibarandrestaurant.com/

This one is also in the marina, and a little more upscale.
Cobb's Landing

The following are short walks from the marina.

2nd Street Bistro

Rinelli’s Yellow Tail - 11 Photos - Seafood Markets - Fort Pierce, FL - Reviews - Yelp

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...57688011938038

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...43176963260091

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Bangk...82236468454348

Bakery, coffee, and breakfast sandwiches

Importico’s Bakery Cafe

Pretty long walk, but full breakfast and lunch

Captain’s Galley Restaurant - 14 Photos - Diners - Fort Pierce, FL - Reviews - Yelp

In addition to these food will be available at the Saturday Farmers Market next door to the marina.

A 7-11 is at the corner of 2nd and Orange. If you need to get to Publix, we'll see if we can arrange it.

I sure hope the rest of us who can't make the party get a chance to see this, too! Is HH going to be there? If so, his shots will be eagerly anticipated, too!

There will be no pictures because the the glare off Ted's boat will make proper lighting impossible.

Worry not, Al. I'm already putting the finishing touches on some of the photos now, even though they haven't been taken yet.

The holidays have passed. It is time to make your marina reservations for the SE Florida TF gathering. Hope to see you there.

Saw on a Law Enforcement forum where Ft Piece PD was requesting several SWAT teams for the time you were planning Don.

Anything we should know?

That's why it's good to reserve early. The FPPD needs time to run back ground checks. They have heard about OTDE.

Hope you make it....

Also hope the extra SWAT teams aren't the real reason...

I have never seen a real live enigma. RT could be there, and we would never know it. The FL West Coast Chapter I heard is bringing Larry's unicorn. This should be interesting.

I live at Harbortown and will be available to shuddle to grocery, Seal Museum, West Marine and so forth all weekend. We have 2 cars so the truck will be available to loan if both of us are in an event.

If there is anything else I can do to help, count me in. Promise...no OTDE politics. Really.

Hobart.

If all goes well with the survey and sea trial this Friday we will be closing on the new-to-us boat on the 19th in Stuart and starting back to Jacksonville that day. We may overnight in Fort Pierce on that Friday.
Will let you know.

Ted, reviewing the photos of Slow Hand under renovation, it looks like your boat and dinghy prefer the missionary position. How unimaginative.

I would like to invite all TF gathering participants to come by and visit me at Harbortown Marina (Slip H13) and see my Cheoy Lee LRC.
Great marina, private, straight shot to inlet, bar/restaurant and boatyard on premises.
See you soon in Fort Pierce!
