We made it and are back in action. The boat came off the roof and with a dash to Brand X engines went back in thanks to the quick and hard work of the crew atBrand X. Now we are in Islamorada with the Florida Powerboat Club.
About 80 boats made the run down on Thursday and about 20 more on Friday. Nothing but a great time here on the run. The raft up party on Saturday was incredible. Kenny Armstrong sent down his Viking Convertible to anchor the group and it was a show like no other.
If by chance your in a part of the country that’s freezing or snowing I want to apologize up front as the weather and the poker run that has had everyone clambering to get to get ready for is matched with near perfect weather.
So we did some simple math and figured that in the neighborhood of 150,000 horsepower scorched the south Florida water ways today. The organization of a Florida Power Boat clubs event is second to none. The starts, card stops and al arrangements are fantastic.
Gilbert’s lunch stop is literally one of the best on water showings of powerboats that can be witnessed anywhere in the world. The event saw less casualties of broken boats than in past trips. We did see Kenny Armstrong side lined with broken 1350 Power steering pump issue but Kenny comes prepared between his bevy of ten beautiful crew women and the MTI crew dove in and the boat was fixed before we left Gilbert’s.
