Went out to Key weedon this past sunday.Was a really nice area with tons of room to pull up and beach the boats on.There was even a food and beer pontoon boat selling sabrett hotdogs,burgers etc.The best part was it's a strictly enforced no wake zone,so no worrying about having to scramble when some jackazz comes flying through in the cabin cruiser.I counted 6 Whalers besides mine there,so there's already some native whaler folks there.Lets not try to make a big production out of it,maybe just pick a weekend within the next month or so and weather permitting meet up for some splashing and riding around Marco island.

We did a Kice island rendezvous a couple years ago off Marco...beautifull but the darn bugs were horrible. I can still taste the Deet in my mouth. Very cool place down there and would be more than happy to attend.

First we are doing a Swanee/Sante Fe River run in late August but not sure when, waiting for fno to say when he is coming back south with my 13'. Then "maybe" the Beaufort SC event on 9/8-9/9 but that is just me a nd a couple others. Janis wants to do a St John's run in late sept or early Oct. What do you think about maybe late Oct unless Janis wants to swap? Reason we are doing the rivers is because many have fresh springs that are 72 degrees all year and crystal clear. Many say it is better to swim there when weather is hot.

My weekends are a little more free now that the house is starting to come together.So as long as my wife isn't working,we can make any weekend work in Oct.I do know i am going to lake kissimmee from nov 10-12 for a s%f event,but other than that no major plans.The bugs were'nt out at all last sunday,the gulf breeze keeps them down i think.With the two little dogs we have it's tough to do anything more than a day trip,so i doubt we'd make the swannee run,but i hear thats a awesome place to take a boat.Like i said,i wasn't trying to plan too much,because then things always seem to get complicated.As long as i can drive there,have fun all day and drive back,i would probably be able to attend.
I'm always up for a sat or sun at beercan too,got a couple fishing forum buddies that been buggin me to come up that way with the red boat.The only drawback to Key Weedon on a sat or sun is if you have kids,the girls tend to get a little wilder as the day goes on ;o)

Weather permitiing they are having a S&F get together on the Alva river this sunday.Hows the sunday after that sound?My wife is starting to work saturdays again as she is training a new girl in the office,so sundays will probably work better.Do you run out there every weekend?Debbie is getting good at driving the wagon,a little seat time behind the Mischief and i'll make sure to bring plenty of beer ;o)

The only weekend I have plans is August 26th.

I can go to beercan in 15 minutes by boat so I'm up for that anytime.

Love the Suwanee and St. John's gonna really try to make those now that I have a boat that is a little bigger. South is an option too usually go Sanibel every year.

Got the first coat of gel on the repair tonight should be in water this weekend. But I always have the non-Whaler;)

OK, here's my deal. I'm heading South with Nick's little boat, or is it realy his keg cooler with a motor attached? during the week of the 13th. Sandy and I are headed to Italy on the 22nd, and we return on the 9th of Sept. After Italy would be better for us, but make your voices heard and we will set the Suwannee weekend up.

My B-Day is the 9th and I think we are having a BBQ on the 12th...are you and Sandy going to be down that weekend Frank? I guess the following weekend I will be up at Frank's picking up my cooler w/engine. So yes the 13th is fine for Beercan with me.

We'd be in for one near Beercan or someplace we can do in a daytrip from Orlando. Maybe we can do a longer trip with a little notice. Mine has not been in the water since Stuart but may do some night fishing tomorrow.

Nick-Are we going to meet at your place and launch at the ramp close to you or ? A ride down the river to beercan sounds like it might be nice

Depends on tide and time Bob. If tide is low, ramp by me sucks but is ok for a 15'. Are you staying on Long boat? If so it might be easier to meet you at beercan. You make the call...my boat is in the yard on the lift waiting to roll.
BOB KEMMLER JR posted 08-07-2006 05:01 PM ET (US)     Profile for BOB KEMMLER JR    
Debbie has to work saturday,so were just going to leave here early in the AM and drive up.The way i'll probably have the Mischief loaded down,it might draft more than your 19 lol I can meet anywhere,but a little boat ride before beercan does sound nice.

You can meet me at my house say 9:30/10ish on sunday. I am probably gonna drop in as well because I am pulling her tonight to change oil, etc.

Had a great time at the mini GTG yesterday,Len thanks again for the food and hospitality.I never got the one guys name in the 170Montauk though,was distracted for awhile by that one boat and it's bow ornaments.So if your reading this,chime in and if you can make it,come on down to Key weedon next Sunday,should be plenty of oppurtunities for pictires of the wildlife.

Good time and thank God for the availability of shaded beach parking....only in FL. Bob's boat was very suave but too bad I was too hot to want to go for a ride in the sun. Till we meet again....when it is cooler outside.

Yup, Bob's boat was very nice I did go for the ride. The boat is very well set up and maintained. And it does fly, 50mph in a 15' is a thrill not to be missed.

Bob and Deb, your welcome for the little hospitality Margit and I provided and certainly welcome back anytime.

Nick, good job on the parking spots, Thanks would have died in the sun and heat Sunday.

And a good time was had by all.

Bob,

Well this is the first time in 4 years of reading Continuous Wave that I've been put on the spot and had to post a reply. Sorry to have left so soon but on sunday my wife likes to get back to the 10th St. ramp by 3 o'clock before the crazies clog the ramp. If you have an address I can send a few pictures of your boat and the other bow ornament shot, only one came out but I only had a few seconds.

Jack

Jack you and your wife just vanished along with the Montauk...I thought the Beercan Triangle got the 3 of you. There was no trace of anything, no oil slick, floating debris, etc. I guess Whalers really can't sink.

Will be there next weekend with the REVENGE! This weekend heading north to get my 13'. My wife has a friend coming out with us next saturday so the REVENGE it is...in all her glory! Hope to see you there Jack and wife...along with Len & Margit and anyone else.

If anyone is up on the Sante Fe river this weekend, look out for a 13' with about 20 registration decals on the sides and no bimini(we'll be bright red like the decals).

My guets are disappointed. I had told then how wild Keewadin sounded(Typiclly wild does not =SW Florida)
They up-ed the chance of rain to 70%. Now I have to come up with a back-up plan for my back-up plan.
Thanks for trying to set this one up.
Danm rain.
