Despite a bad weather start to the day with high winds and a little rain, parade night turned out warm and beautiful! We won the Jack Campbell memorial trophy for best family boat in the parade once again. I don't have any real good pictures of us underway, but a few are posted below of the weekend. It was a great parade and the boardwalk has been mostly rebuilt, allowing lots of spectators there.

Congrats Keith. Y'all were looking good out there. I forgot my camera or I woulda got some pics of you. I would imagine attendance was down this year. How many boats wre there total?
 
43 registered vs. a normal 120 or so, but I think there were a lot of boats that just decorated and jumped in the parade route. There were a lot of spectators in the usual spots, except for the north side of the channel, where it was fenced off due to the destruction of Ike. The boardwalk was rebuilt in about 4 weeks!
