"...we are from Galveston and go to Florida every year. wouldn't go with out mine or one of my buddies boat. JMO."
Hello there SM. You commented that you trailer your boat to Fla., so do I. Where in Fla do you go? What time of year? We go to Perdido key in August thru labor day. We live just outside Dallas and it takes us about 11 hrs to get there. My wife and I grew up on the beaches outside of St. Pete, Fla. We brought our boat there once also...17 hrs straight thru. Not doing that any more!
