I may be heading to Tampa around late March (spring break time) to visit some family down there. Probably be only for a long weekend, but was looking to see if anyone was in the area that maybe could offer me a pull or two?

I'll make them quick barefoot runs, and pay for gas :D

MrCrowson,

I'll be down their for good at the end of the month. I towed my boat down (and left it at a friends) on Christmas Day. We'll have to hook up at Lake Tarpon. I'd love to get a tug behind your X7. Are you still skiing or are you done for the mild winter?

mrcrowson
01-06-2006, 08:54 AM
Yep still skiing down here. Water temp is in the 60s. I really wanted to get out on the water last Sunday but had some chores to tend to. :mad: . Then this week the weather goes and gets too cold for me to hit the water, Oh well Give me a ring when you are ready to hit it. By then it should be nice and warm again.

:D

Just show up at BAWS with your barefoot suit and a rope and tell Jim you are interested in buying that yellow 197 he has with the LQ9 in it and want to give it a demo. That boat ought to foot pretty darn good. :D

I wear a shorty wetsuit when the temp drops into the 60s. It stings :eek: for just a minute when I'm getting in but after that the water warms right up.

:D

BriEOD
01-06-2006, 01:19 PM
High 60's or low 60's? I've got a full wetsuit and drysuit. I also have a shorty, but no BS it is like 30 years old!! I assume you're a skier?

We should have a TMC member get together in the Tampa area maybe on the Friday that I am down there????

What do you guys think everyone in the area getting together and hanging out or skiing for the day?

mrcrowson
01-06-2006, 01:23 PM
Ski, Wakeboard, Kneeboard. I'm up to doing anything as long as it involves getting that boat out of the garage and in the water. Ya might even see me on the old Orange DISKO

BriEOD

I hear ya on that! I left my boat at a Buddy's who lives over in Lutz. Hopefully he doesn't part it out by the time we get back. Another buddy needs a carb for his 85' and he was giving me a hard time!!

It's been years since I've been on Tarpon. Are their resteraunts etc on there yet?

You're in Oldsmar right? We're looking at buying a house in Odessa. Actually, we have a kitchen remodeler going over to do an estimate today. If my wife is happy we'll probably make an offer.

The gathering can be at Tropicana Field. We have a BOAT SHOW at Tropicana Field that weekend...on the actual field where the Rays Play...not concrete. Any MC Owner who shows up gets a T-Shirt. FRIDAY Night should be the planned night. 20 MC shirts all over the FIELD would be AWESOME. You guys can all visit the competitors with your shirts and and get the low down on how "It is just as good as a MasterCraft" Email me for Tickets FRIDAY PM at the Trop.

jim.baws@verizon.net we can TOAST Mr Crowson's 1 year anniversary of his 2005 X-7 that "FITS IN THE GARAGE"

Ok, I will make Friday my MC or TMC day. I want to get a couple pulls in somewhere, and then would hit the boat show if that is where everyone is going to meet.

Jim, it will probably be just me attendding as the rest of my fellow travelers will be visiting family. So count me in for 1 and a late possible 2nd.
