    It would be easier to just swim down the Hudson and hang a right into the marina.

    Someone has to get a pic of the boat with fireworks behind it.

    Mike (Turtlesboat) isn't telling you we had the best steak in the world in NYC last night, the Steak House has been in biz since 1868. He was even nice enough to let me out and buy provisions in Jersey City on the way back to the boat...we aren't friends anymore.

    you weren't stabbed or shot, I think it turned out pretty well. Sure they took your wallet and your shoes, but now you have a story to tell back home. You're such a cry baby sometimes.

    After a Great weekend in the big city, watching fireworks and enjoying our involvement with the "Folds of Honor" folks at Liberty Landing Marina, the 650FLY will depart today in route to Huntington, Long Island. Will be there for an event at the Prime restaurant tomorrow evening (The Prime is an open to the public restaurant). Docked in Huntington until the morning of the 10th, at which time we are headed south. Will be making a fuel stop in Atlantic City NJ this coming weekend and certainly hope to see you there or somewhere on the southbound journey.

    I may have a real thread poster with me on the journey south and hope we can make a daily posting of the trip for you all to see what this unreal vessel has done and can do to encourage the brand you guys enjoy bragging about to your dock neighbors.

    Go Sea Ray !!

    Thanks again for the posts, both past & future. I'll be following you (or in some cases just off of your port bow).

    Great photo. I wonder if the guy in the Sundancer behind the 650 realizes what/who he's following?

    Looks like a 420DA behind him. I wish he was closer so I could really see the scale of the 650.

    Met Rusty and Frank at Bluewater in Hampton this evening as they pulled into the fuel dock. He had a bunch of people from around the marina come out to the fuel dock to look at the boat.... comments like "I've been following this boat since Tampa" and such. Had a crab cake dinner at the restaurant there.

    Oh yeah.. and I heard the comments from the fellow slip holders of "Isn't that the guy who fell off his boat?"

    Seems as though your reputation has preceded you! Have a great time and let us know when yours is ordered.

    Do you think the arm in a sling and the purple sharpie marks on your arm where they are doing surgery were a giveaway?
