Weather has been terrible the past two days so I caught up on some errands. I sold my East Cape Caimen on Sunday to a guy from Illinois who has two homes in Florida. One in Boca Grande and one in Naples. He is coming into Orlando in the beginning of November to pick it up from East Cape so I decided to drive it back to the shop so they could get it ready for him. I left at 5:30 tuesday morning and drove through down pooring rain from New Orleans, all the way to Tallahassee driving 35 mph down I-10. That turned the drive into a 12 hour trip instead of a 9 hour trip. I dropped the boat off around 6 pm and caught up with one of the owners Marc Page who I am great friends with and went home to get some food and catch up on some sleep. I met Kevin Fenn, the other owner of East Cape at Lake Conway to test drive the new East Cape Vantage which is what I now have on order and hope to get it by the end of November. It was sad to see my Caimen go because it was such a good boat, but I am extremely excited to get the new Vantage. Big Redfish and Tarpon beware. This boat is bad ass! I got an Inshore Power Boat 16 ft. skiff as a loaner till my Vantage is done. IPB is a custom skiff manufacturer that East Cape bought into and they are co-owners with Brad Ball. They build a killer little skiff at an awesome price and I am excited to try it out. I left Orlando around 9 am to head back to New Orleans and the drive home was much better. Took 9 hours and the weather was great. catching up with emails and looking forward to getting back on the water friday. Tight Lines!
