    The best part is gonna be Diana in the middle of that fruity bunch ;)
    I thought I had broken her into the “water world “ with my local friends
    She’s in for a real treat
    *insert sinister laugh here*
    I’m pretty sure you may have crossed a time or two by ski yourself Mr.....:p

    I've been working on collecting the mmsi numbers, after this weekend I will post what I have but they will only be for the use of the Monday crossing group. If I feel generous I might share with the Sunday crossers.

    After about 5 minutes they would be begging for you to let them back in the boat. In 5 minutes they would be so exhausted from trying to hang on it would be nuts.

    If we get lucky like I did in 2011, my first crossing to Bimini, and have conditions like this your kids can tube/troll.

    Looks really nice. You got lucky on that run. I'm not really even planning on bringing a tube with us. There should be plenty of other things to do that they cant ordinarily do in their home waters.
