    i will be there sat morning in a new to me old boat. boat was delivered to my driveway at 3am this morning from Minnesota. brought it to work with to check it over. other then a prop change and a little adjustment on throttle cables. i think it is ready to go. hard to believe someone would leave almost a quarter inch of throttle on the table. 5 min fix to open all the way. now to see how much fuel twin 300 pro max motors can really drink.

    How many boats show up for this event? I am coming from Gainesville Saturday in a 24 Hurricane deck boat to just see some cool boats. Where would be the best viewing spot for a slow boat like this?

    boat count varies. just drop in at fanning springs ramp. then head north. find a wide long straight part. anchor up. every boat there will pass that spot at least twice.

    Be safe everybody! Please post photos when you can!
    I definitely owe so many of you appreciation for making the previous two events there very memorable, especially @FlowMaxx Mark and Janna.

    Thanks!

    Great times ! Thanks to everyone who came it was a fantastic weekend . I do have to say though after seeing a few videos and seeing things in person there are some dangerous things going on with boats passing other slow local boats on the river at high speeds and way too close when there was plenty of room to do otherwise as well as following so closely you are in the roost of another boat . Think about what it would be like to be cruising at 30 mph in a small boat with your family and then have a boat come by you at 80 mph 10 - 15 ft away . The fastest way to get complaints and provoke action by FWC is to do stupid crap like this . Please respect the people who live on and use the river every weekend . Don't wear out the welcome as there is no place like this in Florida .

    Thanks again for your hospitality, Tom! You did one heck of a job!

    I'll be a tad less politically correct concerning a certain person in a Liberator who showed what NOT to do at such an event. Nothing like idling at no wake speed for a couple of guys who were making a run only to see some retard coming at me sideways around a blind turn at 100 friggin miles per hour! I'm like, does this moron see this YELLOW Allison in his crosshairs?

    Don't know who you are, but DEFINITELY not cool!!

    Great meeting a bunch of you and finally putting faces with names. Missed a few of you who I would have loved to meet, but maybe next time.

    We had a great time as well. I was able to bring my wife and son for the first time and everyone enjoyed the weekend. We put in today and ran down to Suwanee for another nice ride. I look forward to doing more of these
