    It really sounds like it was such a great time, sorry that the party didn't make it to MV or Cape Cod. We ended up at Hyannis for the weekend, but stayed at Hyannis Marina, since there was no flotilla to raft up with :smt009

    Hopefully next year we can join the party, it sounded like a blast (other than the travel).

    Great write up as always Alex..... You never disappoint..... However, I'm starting to see a pattern of rough seas whenever Inspiration is on the water..... Just saying..........

    Great write up Alex, thanks for sharing. Although we are sorry we didn't get to see the group up here in MA, I am glad you guys made the right choice to stay put in block and enjoy your vacation.

    :lol:.......You're not kidding, Steve. However, the positive experience and joyful adventure is what counts the most in the end. Speaking of adventure, Eleuthera was definitely a bucket list trip. I'm guilty of keep postponing the write-up on it. I promise I'll get on it soon.

    So I was able to salvage my drone by replacing the controller board and a new battery. Surprisingly every other component survived the salt water. I was also able to recover the only footage I was able to capture before it went for a dive in Shelter. It took a bit of trying since the video was cut short before the camera was able to finalize. Either way check the link below for the footage from The Feast. Thanks again to Rick who sprung into action to help retrieve the drone a the cost of a change of shorts. You can see the crash at the end of the video as the prop came loose and the drone nose dived into 2 feet of water. I added some pirate themed music to thank Harold and Arlene for the treasure hunt that the kids loved so much.

    My boat's coming out of the water in about a week, and already I'm getting depressed. So if you're a bit down like me, here's a little video of our Shelter Island raft-up to help cheer you up. Good times. It was great meeting you all. Can't wait for next year!

    John,
    Thanks for the video clip. If you have some pics from paddle board racing, don't hesitate to post them. I'm glad your crew could join us for the flotilla. It was great seeing you guys in Block as well. Looking forward to get together next season.

    Dean,
    It's never too early to plan, just don't make reservations....:lol:
