    Beautiful boat! Welcome to Scream & Fly and the world of really fun boats!

    Problem here is no place to run fast. You can go out to the drainage ditch along the Sawgrass--it is very wide--if yo just want to do speed runs. Access from the West ramps at Markham Park. Once in a while guys get together at Everglades Holiday Park--miles and miles of sraight, flat canals to run it, no much scenery.

    I sometimes launch at Haulover and run south down the Meloy Channel--up against Miami Beach. On a busy weekend, you can still get beat up by other boats wake. Speed limit is, technically, I think 30 or 35, but then who knows. There are a couple of idle zones, more in the winter.

    I love the keys, my fear is that I need to go down with others who know where it is safe to run. Too much shallow water, and some of it has rocks, not sand. I wanted to do the last Keys run, but instead found myself in the Keys driving a van supporting a running relay team my wife was on that ran the 100 miles from Key Largo to Key West.
    Per Rock:

    "Once I bought my first Hydrostream boating changed forever for me."

    Per my hero Instigator:

    "I try not to let common sense interfere w/my boat buying decisions."

    Thanks guy!!!
    I plan on making a trip down to the keys very soon i would have liked to go on the action run but i didnot have the boat and i was working.

    Yesterday morning the ocean was flat calm and i ran out of port everglades to haulover it was a great run, there wasnt very much boat traffic so i was happy

    I will probably run the boat at Markham park this weekend coming.

    My wife got me into marathons--she runs, I walk. When I am out walking on A1A in Fort Lauderdale at sunrise on those days when the ocean is a millpond, I wish I was in the boat instead.
