    Yep, that's were we did all the shakedown tests on our boat after we rigged it. Good ramps, not overcrowded and plenty of room.

    If you just want to run fast in a straight line you can launch on the west side of Markham Park and go north to get to the very wide canal alongside the Sawgrass Expressway. Good place just to air it out, no scenery.

    Or go out to Everglades Holiday Park west of Hwy 27 at Griffin Road. Miles and miles you can run, again no real scenery except natural Florida and if the water is low and the gators come out to the canals you have to watch for them.

    Thanks, that sounds pretty good if I can't make the trek further down.

    The Markham thing is about a half mile narrow canal (really should idle, some campers have small boats alongside, but most don't) then a series of wide pools separated by short narrow connectors. When everything else in Broward turned to idle zones, my kids would go there on weekends to ski and board--just be sure that there were two or three boats in a pool to scare the gators back to shore, and both because of wildlife and rocks do not slalom out anywhere near shore.

    You can launch on the South side of Markham and run the canal along State Road 84/I-75, but it is a little too narrow to run really fast and have room to recover if something goes bad.

    We just bought a bungalow in Astor on a canal so the Talon will be spending a lot of time on the St. Johnís. Once we get the boathouse rebuilt it will be sweet not having to deal with the over crowded ramps. Until then we launch it Friday night / Saturday morning and pull it out Sunday evening before we go back home. The local homeowners association has a private ramp which makes it nice and easy.
