Hello All..

Posting with the general excitement that precedes a 3 day weekend! Any of you local (Tampa Bay) Aquasporters gonna be out on the water this weekend? I'm eyeballing Egmont Key on Sat or maybe Bunces pass if the wind does not play nice..

Bruce- Do you and your better half want to get out for an evening and meet up for drinks? There is plenty of dock space where I live. All below - Open invite to get something planned.

Aaron- HBU?- Should I dare ask, I'm feeling your likely working but I wanted to ask anyway

Scott - Chime in, you gonna head up this way?

Joey - Where the hell did you go?

Bob - Whats your plan?

Anyone.. Bueller.. Bueller (crickets?)

I'm heading to Orlando this weekend, a little re-union with some old friends from my 20-something years...

I tend to stay off the water on holiday weekends. The usual idiots at the ramp,drunk boaters and all the extra marine patrols are a big turn off. With that said I have been Jonesing to go out on the boat. Now if it is enough for me to break my own rules I don't know. Bruce, to be honest I'm not sure exactly where your hanging your hat. I'm not sure what is going on Saturday night. I'm either going to a birday party or I'm meeting up with some buddies for a night out. Let me know what is going on.

Thanks for the offer but I'm still tapped out from a week in the keys as in a empty gas tank

Well first day back to work.. Ugh.. I think I am still at the sandbar. Spent Sat and Monday at the Bunces pass sandbar out towards the west end. Had a great time both days and met some very cool people. I enjoy some of the antics that go on but by in large it was crowded but not too bad. Only saw one idiot in a Nauticstar with the usual "I'm to drunk to lower my motor" problem. Oh, and could not seem to exit without getting hung on other's anchor lines.. I wish I had it on video.

Anyway - Bruce, the holiday weekend crowd not withstanding.. Think you would like it! Great place to anchor now with a nice flat bar that is waist deep for miles :) Its there now at high and/or low tide regardless.

Hope you all had a great weekend! Go Noles!!!

Watched the 'Noles play this weekend. Hope they step it up, they looked the whole game like they did in the first half vs Auburn.

I hit up Monday. Horrible idea. I got a new tattoo a week before, so now that's probably ruined, and trying to show my buddy how to park a boat, I ironically hit a buoy causing a nice little chip on my rub rail frame. Wasn't the first horrible thing I've done this weekend, but still.

Carl, all good bud. We ain't boating unless we're in the dirt, rocks etc. every once in a blue moon sFun_eyescan

Even my beloved Miss D lost her virginity a couple weeks back. Got a little gel chip on the gunnel getting in a fight with a pulley on a piling on a hard NE wind/big moon flood tide.

And given the situation....not a thing I could have done about it without a bow thruster.

So guess what....her brand-new days are over. Now...the ol' gal is back to being a boat :mrgreen:
