All. Has anyone seen a report about how many are going to plan to attend this event? It's not too far away and I for one, have to do some planing.

Thanks.

Dude, bring the dinghy. However, keep in mind if a boat pulls out for a ride we all go along.

Well, I don't know exactly how many there will be, but counting Don, it looks like at least nine.

Thanks Larry, I'll definitely plan to attend then. Sounds like fun to put a name to faces. Hopefully we can all get on the same dock.

See you there.

Good question, BigFish. I think it is time for everyone planning to attend to Let it be known, and make a slip reservation at Fort Pierce City Marina if needed.

Good morning Don

Glad to see you are still with us, there was a rumor you were hungover for a few weeks. LOL

I made my reservation a few weeks ago and told them
I was with the Trawler Forum group. Maybe I shouldn't have said because they didn't seem real happy. What did you guys do last year?

For every groupie there a blind shot to the jaw from one of the anti "bad boys club" out there...

Bigsfish.... Don started this gathering the year after I started showing up for the month of February.

Probably on good authority from guys like LarryM that it would better to have more TFers there than just me.

Last year proved it, even Don had a great time, despite my attendance....

Well, Scot, your rain jackets do come in handy occasionally. I won't tell how I know.

I certainly won't need a rain jacket, my Boss anchor is on the bow and all I need is to hire a few guys to hold it over my head to stay dry. ��

Don't worry, your slip will probably be away from where they keep me.

Plus, Don has done well with getting enough people to circle the beer cooler to keep me from scaring off the desireables. He tosses me me a cool one just enough and must have a deal with OC Diver to babysit me during the gatherings. Poor Ted dIid a great job though AS I think all participants last year had a nice time.

Well, in that case I'll turn on my personal AIS so I'll know where the beer stealer is at all time, a 15 yard zone should work. LOL

I don't steal beer....from what I have been reading on TF for years, that is more a San Francisco area thing where they have to padlock the fridges...

Florida is more noted for boat shoe theft, but definitely wasn't me and seems to have stopped, at least until this gathering.... where the abundance of boat shoes should be like FT Knox to a gold theif.
