We're getting ready to pull into Daytona marina for fuel stop and then were continuing on tonight. Those pics that were posted were great at least everyone can see the set up now. Thanks for all the support sorry I haven't been posting much but thanks to those that are posting pics and locations. We're going to catch up on the thread tonight.

What an awesome thread to start the winter for the cold weather folks......if anyone had tried to write this as fiction, it woulda been rejected as too absurd. ROCK ON NEMS...making history.

If you can let me know when you are passing through Cocoa Village in Brevard County I'll meet you at the day docks with pizza and 12 pack of cold beer just so I can see what she looks like up close!

PM me.

NEMS Daytona Marina then next stop is ????

I guess everybody wants to know your planned stopping locations so we can keep track of your journey.

I just want to know when you think you will be in FT. Lauderdale ???

Lots of boats are arriving each day for the show, had a fleet of yachts come in here yesterday from Italy on 1 big huge ocean liner, that was cool. Still want to see this Yacht coming in Ft. Lauderdale, huge fan of this Viking. That would be my high light of this years show.

Hey Honey we are going to have to change that trip to the keys this weekend, I'm going up to see NEMS coming in the ICW in Ft. Lauderdale. I hope that works, I didn't think you guys would get here so fast, atleast not this weekend. Well..I'll see how that works.

NEMS Monday works for me..........how about you ??

Regards,
Big R

You don't have a hair on your ass if you don't pull this big bitch up to the T-dock at the boat show. Yamaha would probably pay for a spot at this point.

While I think it would be cool to bring that rig to the boat show, I don't think Yamaha would pay for anything. The engines on the Viking are obsolete as far as Yamaha is concerned. They push 4 strokes now and while they are a great product their current engines would never have been running after a couple days under water without major repairs. That's something only a 2 stroke can accomplish. And Yamaha aint selling no 250 HP 2 strokes anymore.
