Dec 4-5. Both rivers lead out to gulf. Short distance to anclote island and sandbar.
several free ramps to drop, in New Port Richey/Port Richey bars and restaurants on river (cotee) and anclote to tarpon.
4 docks of my neighbors, and mine can be used by us (w/ notice and a 6pack) if we want to party on thru the night
who's in for a little pre xmass cheer?

For a lil pre Christmas cheer, you will find a Swellmonster near, with a cold beer. :) Yepper! Im there!

Anyone have any whaler christmas songs?

Dashing through the swells,
in a beautiful 20 outrage,
leaving other boats,
bobbing in my wake!

Oh! Jingle Merc, jingle Merc, smoking all the way,

Oh well, off to work... :)

you're right about one thing swell, those merc's are only worth the smoke they spew.....LOL

I just hope it sun will be a shining, and it's in the 70's-might be too much to ask for eh?

Unfortunately, I am most likely not going to make it. I've had to sober up and work for a change. Looks like the Outrage will be sitting on it's trailer for a while. I'm up in NY right now and will be going to Italy through till Jan 8th. Don't worry about your bread, Nick.

best western-727-842-6800- about $60 , but I can get a better rate, let me know how many rooms.....it's about a 1/2 mile from the boat ramp, in downtown new port richey-
hotel address- 6828 US 19, NPR

boat ramp- take US 19 to main st in NPR, there will be a walgreens on the R corner. turn right on main st. 1st light is river rd, turn left and public ramp is right there on the right.

if you're coming from 75, get off at Sr56, which will merge into SR 54, take that to end, US 19, then turn R and go N on 19.

there is another boat ramp further N on 19, in port richey. it will take about 15-20 min off time to get to gulf (no wake zone) but it's a much busier, and shallow ramp at low tide.- take US19 further N of main st, go over bridge over river, 1st left after brige (you'll see hooters sign) turn there, it'll wind back to public boat ramp.


there are a couple ramps in anclote river as well, but I'm not familar with them.

we can either meet at my house on the docks, or if you want to drop at Port richey, we can meet at hooters-

then we can head out to anclote island/sandbar, do some fishin' and drinkin' and get the family stress of thanksgiving out of our system!

I'm off and maybe we'll try to get there as a day trip. It might be a last minute thing if we do. Cleaned all the broken sheetrock off my Whaler yesterday and went for a cruise. --Last weekend got caught in a downpour when roofing and my garage ceiling collapsed- duh. No major damage just a little stink in front room to dry out and fixing ceilings. I'll let you guys know after T-giving if we'll make it or not.

Plus, I found another event going on up in the same area,

And in New Port Richey, the 7 p.m. Riverlights Boat Parade tours the Pithlachascotee River; prime viewing spots include the newly opened Cotee River Park or the riverfront at Sims Park downtown, where you can check out the tasty bites of Taste of the Holidays (5:30-11 p.m.).

Whoo-hoo!

Now its back on, found another link...

December 4, 11 - 12, 2004
Truly making Downtown New Port Richey a holiday destination, Main Street Holidays is comprised of a variety of special events and promotions taking place during the month of December. For those who enjoy holiday sightseeing, Downtown New Port Richey should be a must on the list. Throughout the month of December visitors will be treated to the magnificent display of lights and decorations adorning local businesses as they compete for honors in Greater New Port Richey Main Street’s annual Light Up Downtown contest sponsored by Progress Energy.

To officially launch the holiday season, the fourth annual Riverlights Boat Parade will take place the evening of Saturday, December 4th. Public seating, refreshments and light entertainment will be available for those who want to view the area’s only nighttime parade of festively decorated boats from Sims Park, situated along the banks of the Pithlachascotee River.

Jim, feel free to do some cleaning up my mess....
