Don,
Thanks a million. If we go that route I'll be sure to give you a shout.

True! It never gets old for us. We had 12 on the bow in Long Island Sound this fall at it was incredible to watch how powerful they are.

Well he'll hate "BACK IN BLACK" when I've finished building her then. Top speed of 12 knots with a cruising speed of between 6 - 8

My ski boat has a 250hp EFI 2 stroke and puts out 72 knots at WOT but uses 200ltrs in about 45 mins. Fast = $$$$$.

Can't wait to finish the build and putt along :-)

Well we spent two nights on the hook in Ft Pierce. Great to see the weekend boat traffic as temps were in the 80s with water at 79! Had to replace a water line on the genset. Got to do some fishing from the boat with the boys in the crystal clear water here as we were right near the inlet. Pics are from the Vero Beach and Ft Pierce area and the VAB in Cocoa.

Daddyo,

Where near the inlet were you anchored in Ft. Pierce?

We're going to leave the boat in Ft Lauderdale area for two weeks. Any suggestions?

Check out the Los Olas Docks. Great location near the beach, and they have about 10 mooring balls on a first come first served basis. It is a city facility. I'm not certain how long they will let you stay.
