Any members from there. I Would like to know if there are any Whaler parties that happen or if anyone would like them to happen. I am going to call Cannon's Marine on Long boat Key and see if they know of any get togethers.

Hey bigshot'
Cannon Marine is no longer a Whaler dealer.
I don't think they have the Info.
I believe there is a Whaler tournament
at Caladesi island north of clearwater
beach on july first.

Ed, I forgot Cannons did that. Gulf Wind now has it over by the Mote Maine joint. Where do you live? I am in Ellenton and am going to Beer can Island(just west on Long Boat pass bridge where it connects to Anna Maria island. I e-mailed Bradenton Whaler(lyle)and said I will be there on Sunday. look for a 17' Montauk with the big red Whaler decal on the sides. I would like to get a bunch of locals to go. I am gonna post in the general section an invite. Nick

Nick,
I live in St.Pete.
I do most of my boating out of Johns pass.
One of these days I'll make it down there
to Longboat key.

Ed, I am working on a trip to pass-a-grill but usually do that in my 24' Baja. Far ride in a 17'(not for me, wife!)especially when you have a bigger boat.

Thought you guys went without me. Went ther on saturday and there was a big tent with a whaler banner and flags. About a dozen whalers too. I went up to the tent and it had a big sign that said "Gulfwind Marina cruise members ONLY!" Kind of turned me off with that so I kept walking.

Wow, what a disappointment! I would love to have joined up with you this week, but my boat's in the garage for some work. I shoehorned it in there to store while I was out of town, then decided to leave it until a lot of the work I've been putting off got done. When it's out it'll have a windshield, grab rail, depthfinder, loran (if working), VHF, compass, plus the trailer will have new bunks, lights, wiring, bearing repacked. Lots of minor jobs as well.

Eric let me know! I live in Ellenton and go there every weekend(usually). Went out on Sunday too but it was hot and i was out too late on Sat/sun morning. E-mail me when you are heading out and I will try and round up some friends and bring the Whaler. Nick

sounds good! I believe that there's some other readers of the forum in Sarasota, and I'm sure there's some in the Tampa bay area.

I had planned a trip to Egmont Key to go snorkeling with my wife and a friend. The evening weather said 90% chance of rain, and the weatherman said might as well make it 100%. I'll work on the trailer and boat instead. Got a scallop trip coming up next month.

going to steinhatchee? Did it last year, a lot of fun, but a lot of work. You shuck a 100qt cooler and get 3lbs of scallops and very abused hands. This year I am giving them away unshucked and stopping at Publix.

Actually trying to. We are trying a Boatdr.com trip to cedar key or Crystal river. They did one last spring at shell Island but I was at a wedding in CT. I would love to go to Shell but towing a boat 8 hours for a weekend each way is rough. 3-4 hours I can handle.
