9 x 27 1/2 x 3 7/8

EPS/epoxy for Jacky

They are super light, and they say they turn super quick.

I suspect I'll need to order another after I ride Jacky's.

Dear Mac, Alan, & the rest of the Coastal Crew (Bill OBX) (Mac, please forward to Alan, et al. I lost his email address & can't access his blog.):
This is off topic but I figured adventuresome folks such as yourselves could help some fellow Mariners. They are 5 South Jersey Lifeguards who are currently rowing two lifeguard boats from Boca Raton, FL to Wildwood, NJ on the Intercoastal to raise money and awareness forThe Autism Society of America, and are headed your way. One of the guys, Dan McCann, is the nephew of several of my lifeguarding buddies, and two others guys recently graduated from my high school in Philadelphia, Anyway, they have embarked on a heroic oddessy. As of today they just cleared the FL/GA state line and are heading into the southeast coast, an area where you and your website readers have a lot of expertise. They are rowing via the intercoastal. They are mostly benefiting from the kindness of strangers. IF ANY OF YOUR CREW CAN HELP THEM WITH A 1 NIGHT STAY, HOT MEAL, COLD DRINK, or some place to tie up the boats at night THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

I'M ALSO CONCERNED FOR THEM WHEN CROSSING SOME OF THESE MANY INLETS IN GA/SC/NC ON THE OUTGOING TIDE. ANY LOCAL advice, maps, website would be appreciated. Direct all help to rocktheboatforautism@gmail.com I'm ccing them on this email.

Rock the Boat for Autism http://www.rocktheboatforautism.org/index.php are 5 South Jersey Lifeguards who are rowing two lifeguard boats from Boca Raton to Wildwood, NJ on the Intercoastal to raise money and awareness for Autism are headed your way. Presently they are rowing their way north on this 1500 odssey and have left Jacksonvville and heading your way. THe men are rowing about 20 miles a day. Today they rowed 51 miles!!! If you or someone you know, such as yacht clubs, rowing clubs, marinas, sailing clubs, or generous individuals living on the intercoastal can offer these valiant men 1 night accommodations please let them know. To contact the lads go to rocktheboatforautism@gmail.com

JACKSONVILLE BEACH, FL -- Five guys are rowing past the First Coast to raise money for autism.
John Lose, Ryan Meyer, Larry Maher, Dan McCann, and James O'Donoghue are rowing 17-foot Van Duyne Surf Boats 1500 miles.

They are going from Boca Raton, FL, to Sea Isle City, NJ, between June 13 and August 1.

The group made an unexpectedly long stop in Jacksonville Beach. That's because the van following the boats with all of their equipment broke down Sunday.

They plan on leaving the Beach Marina in Jacksonville Beach at 7 a.m. Monday morning. That is their van is ready to travel by then.

Their goal is to raise $250,000 or more for autism awareness and research for the Autism Society of America.

The guys say they are committed to helping those affected by autism.

If you'd like to help them, you can make a donation on their website www.rocktheboatforautism.org.

Had a great day off today. After a day of the current ripping against us and a severe thunderstorm that hindered us yesterday, today turned out to be very productive. I first met with Carol at the Amelia Island Yacht Basin who was very helpful in providing us with information on docking our boats and lodging for the night. I met with Jay and Rodger at Fernandina Harbor Marina who generously provided us with a discounted boat slip for the night. I then went and spoke with Jimmy Cooper and Carolyn at the Hampton Inn and Suites in downtown Fernandina. What a great people they were, even though one of them is a Cowboys fan. They were able to not only donate a complimentary room, but a suite for the night. Thanks a million Jimmy, Carolyn, and Hampton Inn. And finally, thanks to the Philly Boyz steak shop and Scott in downtown Fernandina for getting us some great late night sandwiches and also setting up a collection basket to collect donations for our cause. That southern hospitality everyone talks about it definately true. Thanks to everyone!

Hugh, Hope you're well. You must have me confused with DW's blog...I happened to stumble on your comments below when reading DW's blog. My blog is http://thewaterturtle.blogspot.com

The Charlotte Windsurfing Forum is http://www.ibscc-chatboard.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?fid=2

I just posted your comments on the CLT Forum so go there to interact with the crew. I'm sure DW is wondering how his blog got hijacked :-) Thanks for the heads up.
