Where did you get the pics? If FPL shared, what is the URL? Not doubting your word but I would like to know where the pics originated, please.

So far, I'm not biting.... LOL.... :uglyhamme

What do they expect, that whole area was swamp and wilderness 30 years ago. The critters got to go somewhere.

Those are not ski friendly critters. BTW, please keep them in Florida!

According to Snopes (http://www.snopes.com/photos/animals/culvert.asp), real picture, but inaccurate description.

You learn to deal with it. My only scare with gators was the kayak incident. Otherwise they really don't like to be around you. The chances of coming across an 18 footer have got to be extrememly rare. The only way they get that big is staying out of sight.

I wouldn’t worry about me as much as I would worry about sending a 5 year old in to swim

Just one of those things that's impossible to do on the sly.

No

I think they are just messing with you this morning. They will more than likely all go back to the old stuff by this afternoon

I think it has happened before

It will look better once everyone quits screwing around.

Doesn't bother me, he is speeding up my boat buying process! :woohoo:

While you are looking you cannot look at too many boats. Even when I bought new I checked out ~7 dealers and had around $8k range in the prices. What I didn't realize was my local dealer at the time was getting out of the boat business to focus on RV's and I think selling cheap.

That’s actually not something you want to do fast. Look around.
