Ok..we have a good turnout in the works for Venice on 11/3. Most know we are meeting at Snake Island just inside the Venice inlet. For those coming North, post where you want to meet other southerners so you can caravan. From the Norh we are leaving my house in Ellenton(e-mail me for info), dropping in at Highland shores ramp about 10am. meeting Len & Margit and my parents in Bradenton by Annies(Cortez bridge) at 10:45am then heading south to centenial park(if anyone is dropping there and wants to caravan) which should get us there about 11:30, should be at snake on or about 12:30 or so.

Should we try for earlier or is this OK?

Now so far we have signed up or darn good maybe:

Tohsgig- 19' Revenge
Where2- 15' sport or rage
erik88montauk- guess ;)
Inhernet- 170 Montauk
an86carrera- 19' slo-pro ;)
fno- 21' outrage
Spongebob- 22' outrage
Draftsmanswife- 22' outrage
b16driven- ???
briguy- 17' madetauk
mitchD- ???
Cmarques- 16' Dauntless
Myakka- ???
Stefan- 18' outrage
Swellmonster- 20' outrage

So 15 boats and about 50+ people. Do we want to have everyone bring a dish or ?? or just bring what you want to eat yourselves? Usually bringing a dish makes for a TON of food wasted and not enough beer ;)

Please let us know where you are coming from and if you want to caravan from what spot/landmark/time etc. Anotherwords- Where2 meeting at centenial park to caravan at 11am or Where2 meeting at Snake Island at 12p. Please try and be in the water and ready to meet up with others(unlike me usually) because we have a few stops to make and a short time to get there. I don't want it to snowball so that people at Centenial are sitting around waiting for an hour, etc. I REALLY want to be at snake Island on time or early obviously without any troubles like we had in New Port Richey.

Gonna have to wear those steeltoh flip flops if your coming Nick with your new name and all;o] I hoping your name for my boat is no longer true by then. Because I'm not wasting all that gas to go 45mph.

Is Highland shores the ramp near your place Nick? If so, we will probably meet at your place and head down.

Launching and docking at your place, Nick. Is anyone planning to ride with me and Sandy to Venice?

Leaving my dock anytime everyone else is ready and will meet wherever the crowd decides.

Ah...you'll get her dialed in Len, something just aint right or that t-top is really slowing you down(seriously).

Chris, yes ramp by my house, will let you know about tides when we get closer.

Frank...coming up friday or sat morn, spare room is yours, other spare for Janis is she does not flake on us...again. Are you bringing dogs? Not sure if they are allowed in Venice(doubt it). Nobody riding with you so far but maybe Brian if he decides not to take his 17'. Again a lot depends on Janis showing with the 22 or sans boat or showing at all.

Don...meeting at Snake Is. but are your meeting up with Myakka and anyone else?

I believe Myakka and MitchD are running up from Englewood. So, it should be three boats.
MitchD posted 10-21-2007 12:10 AM ET (US)     Profile for MitchD  Send Email to MitchD     
So far so good on our plans to be there on the 3rd. We will be leaving the Denver area on the 25th or 26th, with four days on the road. This will be my 190 Nantucket's first salt water splash, so we plan to do a maiden voyage a few days before the get-together.
Does anyone want some Coors beer brewed with true Rocky Mountain spring water? We have limited space, but can carry several cases iced down on this trip. Coors beer should be transported cold.
InHerNet and Myakka: There are a couple of ramps close to Englewood on Lemon Bay, at Indian Mound Park, and near the Manasota Key Beach Road bridge. Let's plan to meet near the Manasota Key Beach Road bridge, ICW Green bouy #43 at around 11:00 AM, should give us plenty of time to reach Snake Island by noon or 12:30 via the ICW. I don't have a VHF yet, but plan to have a hand-held unit next week.
My e-mail is mdrobniewski@msn.com let's exchange some correspondence, so as not to bore the rest of the party.

Looks like we are going to have to save the cash and opt-out on this ot my trip. Not my decision, Draftsman put the ink down on this one. Our anniversary is the 9th, and we are going out west. Carolina's for Thanksgiing, and the islands for Christmas. Can I come down for the day and hitch with someone? That would be great...I guess I'll sub-lease the spare bedroom at Nick's. Highest bidder pays for fuel! >^..^< Janis

Save the cooler room for BEEF! The meat quality in Florida isn't half as good as Colorado. The wife and I had cow in one form or another all twelve days we spent in your state last month.
If you don't get a handheld VHF you can use mine.
I had planned on putting in down by InHerNet(Ainger Creek)the night before( I have access to a slip nearby).

Beer is always welcome!

Janis you can hitch with Fno or me...no problem. Tell Tom he is really becoming a party pooper. Would he be more interested if we had paintball or something?

Sorry, I won't be making it. I really had hoped to get down there but I have to go up to CT that weekend. The shoulder is just to the point I think I could do it too. Have fun!

The best laid plans, etc. I won'b be able to attend the party, because of a freak accident. I fell through the drywall ceiling in my garage, about 10ft, and got a compression fracture of a vertebra. It could have been MUCH, MUCH worse. I'm now on drugs and waiting for a follow-up doctor visit to see if it's mending properly. Looks like about three to four weeks of being mellow on pain killers.
The trip was postponed until 1st quarter of 2008. I was really looking forward to meeting all of you.

Shoulda bought those Yammies Jeff!

Ya know...those who do not have a running boat or have an injury etc can always drive down in our boats or to venice and we can pick you up. You can see us from the public parking lot across the ICW.

Here is the weather for Sarasota:

I would imagine this depends on our hurricane karma.

I think that the LowPro should be ready (fingers crossed).

Looks like we might dodge the bullet weather wise. Let's hope so. If we don't get the boats out, I might need the Betty Ford Clinic after the weekend. Just think, Beer, Guns, and Pickles.....and VNAT(No!!!!!!!!!!)

I plan on being there, obviously depending on the weather, in my Outrage 18. I may, however, be out there solo, as my friends have wussed out and the GF is no longer.....so if anyone wants to ride along with me, you are welcome to ride. I plan on being at the Fruitville Road ramp at 11 on Saturday.

Oh crap, I just remembered that this Friday is First Friday in St. Pete....it's going to be one ugly Saturday morning.....

Won`t be able to make it. Leaky gear case, big puddle of oil on garage floor. I got a new seal kit the other day, but didn`t have time to fix it. I`m already out of town with no boat.

Ok...looks like 15-20mph winds on sat. I am not going to do this if that is the case...BUUUUTTTTTT!

What we will do IF it is that strong is have a more local rendezvouz at either Beercan or somewhere on the Manatee river. I have NEVER cancelled a rendezvous but being only 2 people are coming from the south, I might have to redirect it. We are still going to have a fantastic party/BBQ at my house saturday afternoon/evening so please come even if you can't go boating. My Cell is 941-545-3808 so call me Sat early morning for an update on what the plan is going to be. No matter what we WILL have fun and do some boating!!!

Will see you guys in the morning (I haven't bailed out yet!)
$60.00 in gas in the boat tonight and ready to go. We will be leaving 6:30-7:00 am and will be at Nick's around 9 or so. I will call you on the way.
Is there a plan for lunch? Don't know if we should stop and pick up something or what?
Call me 407-353-2366 if anything changes.

There was 4+' stuff in the bay and hence why we stayed up north. Only 4 whalers so thise of you who bailed(long list but you know who you are) missed nothing but a great BBQ at my house sat evening, probably about 30 people. At the island we had Chris, Michelle, and Brantly in his 160 Dauntless. Me, my parents, and their 2 friends in my 19. Janis and Frank in his 21. Len an Margit in his 19 Lo-Pro. And Brian, Kim, and his son in his 23 SeaCraft(too rough for the montauk). Good to see the "ole faithfull" group again. I think next time we are just going to call each other and get together since we are the same 4 boats that show up :)

We got back home about 1:00 this morning. The dog was happy to see us.
Thanks everyone for a great day. Unfortunately, the wind made it a pretty rough day, 4'+ in Tampa Bay and we did get wet.
I had the prop out of the water a few times on the ride back to Nick's.
We had a great cookout at Nick's (thanks again) and hope the next trip has calmer seas and more people able to attend.

Stef, we all know that baby is too cute to be yours, so you should have shown up. We had a very good time as usual, despite the beating on the way to Beercan Island.

well frank, if you had a classic hull, and any engine other than a merc, you wouldn't have spilled a drop of beer the whole way...
