    good day on the water...

    We launched at Anna Maria Island and cruised Passage key, Egmont Key, Fort Desoto, Shell Island ( and the sand bar) then down to Jewfish, beer can and Longboat Key.With all of the boats and skis on the water today we were pleasantly surprised that we encountered only a few A-holes.....one or two boats plowing through the skis but most were courteous...maybe six skis all day blasting through the minimum wake zones...some didn't look like rentals either...we towed one ski to shore,......rescued two kayakers with a small dog, none of them wearing a PFD, both kayaks overturned, personal gear floating around, the woman and small dog hanging on to a construction barge that was anchored next to the bridge at longboat pass...strong tide going out to the gulf...my wife went to her aid I went to the man that was trying to turn over the kayaks all the while getting sucked out into the gulf..what a mess....with me steding the craft he finally got back in, no paddle so kept drifting, I towed the other kayak to shore, my wife had the woman and dog on her ski and went to help the man and to tow him to shore...whew,,,,now to watch fireworks...and yes we do remember the reason why we celebrate the 4th....

    More like a busy day on the water. Kudos to you and the wife for being such good souls.

    the 4th, Havasu style.
    ...as far as I know - we had no fatalities from a boating accident!
