    Bob, I will be on the dock on Collins Ave. for the duration of the show. If by chance you can not see or find me, please do not leave until you ask the girls at the desk of anyone from Sea Ray or any of our dealers. I will only be off the dock for lunch or looking at other boats. You will find me !!! And a cup of coffee sounds great.

    Looking forward!

    Rusty

    Captain Rusty......you are going to have to suffer through another meet and greet next Saturday. Kathy and I will be there mid afternoon. She may seem angrier than usual as the 58 is for sale.....and she knows what that means. See you Saturday.

    Bring it on Big B....why in the wide world of sports are you considering selling the 58, great boat, and Lord knows you spent a lot of time dialing that baby in to your liking. Only two reasons for you to sell, 1- to buy a bigger boat or 2- to fund all those weddings you have coming, lol!!! with two daughters myself, I can sympathize my man.

    Tell Ms. Kathy I am looking forward to seeing her..as always!

    Capt. Rusty, I was disappointed that we missed meeting you. We were at the Collins location on Thursday, but was told you were at the Virginia Key location when we were there. We were treated very well by the Sea Ray people tho, but I can't remember the name of the guy who showed us all around, but he was great. Wife and I had an awesome time and learned a ton from the show. One big eye opener was with pods. In the last number of weeks, I have become convinced to not buy pods. My dockmaster has been telling me horror stories of late about them. So what we did was visit each brand and ask what they offered in the 50' range without pods. Every single rep responded the same way saying, "oh, so you've had pods before". It was very telling, and they all then would say, "I wouldn't buy them either" and all had nightmare stories. The Sea Ray rep was the only one to stand by the Zeus, although he told me they were moving away from them and going to offer other options in the near future. We did find a boat that checked off all our wants.

    Hi Capt. Rusty,
    We had a great time at the show as well. (except for the two hour transit time from the parking area to the show via shuttle). It was fun to meet with you and very informative. You are everything I have heard about! Thanks for your help! Regarding PODS; The Regal rep mentioned that they were soon to offer shafts again on their cruisers. Obviously there is intrest in returning to shafts after a decade or more experence with Pods.

    Capt. Rusty, Enjoyed catching up with you again and touring the new boats as always. As always everyone there we spoke with were very helpful and did well representing the Sea Ray lineup. I can’t say enough about you being out there, here and everywhere else you’re ever needed for customer assistance and you’ve always been a great Sea Ray Ambassador in my Sea Ray Owner’s opinion. Best to you and the whole gang and until next time as always, Safe Fun Travels,

    John
