That sounds like fun.
The same weekend we'll be in Biloxi, MS for the Offshore Power boat races "Smokin' the Sound" so we'll miss the Freeport great times.
Enjoy

Alfton, that does sound like fun!

BTW, is that a Pilgrim in your avatar?* Would it happen to be the same one that was in the middle of the road on Pleasure Island after Hurricane Ike?

Those are great boats!

Doesn't really bother us....just a state of mind...lol. *We had a Prairie 29 that cruised at 6.5 knots. *We went more places in that boat than this one. *The Pilgrim would be a slam dunk with the Admiral. *Just to spendy for us at this point. *THere are a lot of very nice ones on YW right now!!!

Found it on ActiveCaptain. Latitude: 28°57.074'N
Longitude: 095°20.665'W.

That's inside what at one time was a homeland security protected area. I guess it's not any more.

While we wait for the official TMCA response, I will tell you that by looking at Google Maps it appears to be adjacent to the FM 1495 bridge.* just south? (down stream) of town

Spring Fling – Freeport Rendezvous, May 13th through 15th, 2011

Hey guys, all of the pics that I have seen show it almost empty. Any idea how many boats are in there now?* Also, will slip reservations have to be made through TMCA or the marina?

I talked to Brent (Friendship) last night and he said he will be there with the http://www.truenorth-marine.com/ crew.* They're also thinking about having at least one mechanic at the festivities to do some work if needed.

Doug,
The marina is not complete yet.* I understand that they have power and water on the docks, but no heads and showers ashore yet.* To my knowledge you will have to make reservations through TMCA.* The club is also co ordinating transportation from two (2) other marinas in Freeport.*
