YA All stop by,

Last weekend we ran our** GM 4106 (think of a Greyhound) coach conversion down , as usual loaded , towing a trailer down from the fridgid North East to our spot in FL.

WE are located on the Caloosahatchie River , about 1 mile East of the Ortona Lock.

This is about 55 miles East of Ft Meyers, on the ICW route east /west across Florida.

We have about 8 ft of water in the chanel and can handle boats to 65 ft .

15A of 120v or 240v is at the dock .

For small projects we do have the usual shop tools , table saw , drill press , band saw , and for wood butchers like me a 6x40 table sander.

We always welcome overnight guests , the only price , a quickie tour of your boat.

Folks that need to fly* out* for a while , can usually finf low cost dockage with one of the neighbors.

Always a pleasure to have visitors* , we are a SSCA stop too, so you might fimd a rag bagger cruiser here too.

We can easily hold over 300 ft of boats , and only have a 36 , 32 and 50 , so there is usually room to spare.

RE: YA All stop by,

We overnighted at Fred's in our Monk 36 January 2009. It is a great stop, just off the Okeechobee Waterway.
Thanks Fred, for making this available, we hope to drop in next time across!

Guru: *Wondering if you're also an AGCLA Harbor Host? *We'll most likely be transiting the FL Loop (Miami, St. Lucie, Ft. Myers, Miami) to shake out our Krogen in the months ahead, and we'll check with you then. *Meanwhile, we should also have a waterfront Miami residence secured by that time. *Hope to offer others the same.

DANG!

DANG ** ...sometimes I'm just on the wrong coast.!

Fred,
I make a table sander out of my belt sander by turning it upsidedown but
sometimes (frequiently) it gets away from me. Can I send you some teak
to sand?** ...yea I know** ...may not make it back. Sounds like you've got
a nice little world down there*** ...what took you so long gett'in there.
I'd a left a month ago. I could get high on 240vac.

No, I never want to pay to join a group so I can give away a free bee.

Feel free to copy and paste my offer , all are welcome.

On the Loop it self we only attempted to learn of the AGCLA gaggle group position so we could avoid a mob. A couple of boats in a secluded anchorage is a delight , a dozen ?,,, ugh!

Forgot to mention the prossessive of y'all.* Singular possessive is y'all's.* Plural possessive is all y'allses'---------and don't forget to drop your r's and g's when speaking Southernese.

Point well taken, FF. *I haven't been on the loop yet, but being the bit of the introvert, I'm more apt to find those less populated anchorages as well. *Regardless, thanks for the open invitation.*

Awe that's OK.* We never knock off points for trying.* Maybe if we stop by you can teach me the Bronx Cheer, and I'll teach you the Rebel Yell.

Right on, Woody and Keith.* Now, we're talking Southern.* That would be sweet tea, y'all, and grits go with everything.* No sugar in the grits please.* Don't forget that gs are js as in Joja (Georgia for those that don't understand). . . . ., and why use one syllable when two will do.* Like my late wife from the deep South, A-nne.* Or her sister Baubra (that's Barbara).* As Phil Harris used to sing*"That's What I*like About the South".

*Ahh yes, I always visit a certain gas station/tackle shop/mini-mart/seafood market known as Sheffield's to get my fix of boiled peanuts.* Best I've had anywhere, and you can get there by boat.* Also to pick up the shrimp and Neese's sausage to go in the schrimp 'n grits.

That may be how y'all do it in the "deep South", but in Texas it would be "all of y'all's"....plural possessive.

And, thanks for the offer, FF, that is very kind of you!!!
