    well, everyone knows the fate of the "Plan B" group so I won't get into any details about the trip.

    Here are some of the pics of the most fabulous get together I've ever had....

    we are leaving Miami behind after traveling from Fort Lauderdale. Next stop - Boca Chita Key !!!!

    Great pics...brings back memories of when I lived in South Dade in the'70s and boated that area every weekend. That's some of the best water in the country.:thumbsup:

    How about photoshopping some names on one of the pics, so the rest of us know who's who?

    We used to have someone who was really good at that on here...

    I added names to the photos so you could keep an eye out in the Post Offices.

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing. Growing up and boating in Miami for years they bring back some great memories.

    No pictures of the bad weather that turned you back? Would be great for those 240 Sundeck owners that think they should cross :)

    Ken and Ray - great pics!!! It looked like Heather really enjoyed the Dolphin Excursion, what a smile she has.

    Ken, I was wondering the same thing, the pic of you and Jack trying to cross looked pretty calm (compared to what the rest of us were looking at). That shot must have been at the beginning of the attempt?

    Randy,
    That picture was about 7 miles out of Miami. Right before I called Ray and said hey it's great out here come out and play. About 13 more miles we entered into the Vortex. I unfortunatly have no pics. as I was busy with the buttons and levers.
