    He is taking it to the West Coast of Florida for an event. The beginning of many stops over the next few months.

    Is that so? He does, does he..... Well, I don't see anyone here driving. He must be sitting at the helm inside below in the luxury and air conditioning.....

    Cushy, cushy....

    All joking aside, Rusty is running the Fly.... He says "hi" to everyone.

    Rusty is way more than a delivery captain.

    Will be away from the site for awhile but hope to see you on the waterways of the East Coast of the great USA. I have been offered the privilege of taking our gorgeous new 650FLY from the West Coast of Florida; through the Okeechobee Waterway then turn north.
    For the next two months I will be traveling the Atlantic Ocean and the ICW with a destination of Boston MA. We have been asked by some of our dealers on the East Coast for the 650FLY to stop by for their inspection and first review as they have been waiting with huge anticipation for this new model from Sea Ray Boats. I do not see any local marinas on the agenda so if you see me cruising by, please give me a hail or a honk, I would enjoy that very much.
    Check this big vessel out on SeaRay.com and find it under the L Class heading, where you can review The Ultimate Expression of Sea Ray for yourself. She is all of that and then some!
    The 650FLY and I will be passing through Palm Beach FL, Savannah GA, Charleston SC, Wrightsville Beach NC, Annapolis & Baltimore MD, New York NY and Boston MA. There are some additional areas we very well may show up so please be looking. If you happen to see us, make it known and tell others we crossed wakes. It will be my pleasure to go up one of the VHF and give you a shout out!

    Will be on the water until mid- July, hope to see you!! Be safe and, Go Sea Ray!

    Have fun with it. Take photos and start a blog where you can post photos about the trip.

    Do you want some Internet to carry with you? I have a spare hotspot you can borrow.

    And give us a shout if you land in our area overnight. We'll buy you dinner instead of Sea Ray...


    How much is your commission of you sell a couple of those bad boys to some of your millionaire friends along the way?

    Rusty, could you give an ETA when you'll be cruising through Charleston? We've got a large contingent of Carolina Sea Ray owners that would love to be here to hail you as you go on your way.

    Great job. I am at mile marker 539 on the ICW at Port Royal Landing Marina just North of Hilton Head. Good spot for a break if needed. We just had the Capricorn super yacht (140 ft) here for a few days so we can fit you, no problem.
