    Hey all, the I have a conference in Orlando the week after next and we are going to stay over a few days extra to check out this area. A certain Captain may be giving us a personal tour of the Sea Ray plant during our stay! We will be stay right on Cocoa Beach for this part of our stay. If anyone that is in the area is available sometime between 3/16 and 3/18, I would love to touch base over an adult beverage or something. I alsways enjoy meeting up with CSR folks I have followed over the years.

    Could do a lot worse…..!

    Stick with Rusty for restaurant recommendations and stay as long as it takes to go thru Sykes Creek. You will have a whole new appreciation for what goes into these boats.

    I'm working in Wash DC that week but may be back. Have Capt. Higgins give me a call when you guys get something together. If time permits we can take a tour of the SC by water; or at least meet for lunch.

    Agreed, we plan on getting a chance to see as much of the plant as possible! I am absolutely confident that Mr. Higgins knows the best of the best places to stop for a beverage, food or whatever!

    We have friends living in Ft Meyers over the Winters and would love to be able to fit in time to head down. Unfortunately we only have a couple of non-work days and they are used up (Thanks Rusty!)
