Greetings,
Mr. LM. Ran into somewhat the same scenario in the same general area only it was 1 on 1. Perp' failed as well. Really threw me for a loop when these two boats appeared at very high speed seemingly out of nowhere and proceeded to "exercise" much too close to our vessel.

When I was cruising down the ICW yesterday I came upon a "go fast" Sheriff boat that had beached itself trying to cut a corner into another canal. They had the three 300 HP engines screaming in reverse trying to get off.

I tried to take a picture but chickened out-- I was having a beer. I acted like I didn't see them.

You're right, Jim. Someone here on the Forum used the basic photo and added the tuna tower and some other items in the Ugly Boats thread a few years ago.

Greetings,
Is someone suggesting a recycling of pictures? Stale news? Perish the thought!

RT: Exercise is the word. A few days later we were informed that there is a Homeland Security training facility in St. Augustine. They do seem to have some interesting toys.
