    I can help with whatever needs to be done. Why don't you
    shoot for a mid to late April date so those of us who are expecting
    Kawasaki's should have taken delivery by then.

    Are you thinking of a one way trip and haul skis back from West Coast?

    Estimate of time for trip?? How much is no/low wake zones??

    Curious minds want to know!

    I was originally looking at doing mudbug, bimini road rally, or somthing else.

    this is cheaper and has peaked my interest....

    I've always wanted to make this run by boat, never did. Jet Skiing should
    be a trip. Here's an info link http://www.sailmiami.com/Okeechobee/...General%20Info
    You go through locks like the Panama Canal, raise you 15' going into the lake and lowering you 15' coming out on the way to Ft. Myers.

    Those are all details we would have to agree on, I'm completely flexable.
    We could work something out on the return trip. I have a double trailer, if someone else has the same we could put both on one trailer and take the other over to the West coast then Trailer back. I go back and worth from Ft.Lickerdale to Ft.Myers all most weekly so I could take my trailer and leave it at the ramp and have one of my employees bring me back. I'll find a link that we found where another group made all plans (Marinas,food,distance) I find then post.

    From what I've gathered, it would probably have to be an overnight(s) event(theoretically staying at the lake,than onto Ft Meyers the next day)....I know of a couple of the guys on the west coast that did this trip in 03....let me drop them an email and pick there brains.....
