  • Destin Funament June 19-26, 2021

    Its that time again to announce the dates and begin some conversation. We got about 8 or 9 families ready and committed. Start prepping the boats boys. Time will fly. My family will be more busier than normal this year. Im not sure how thats possible but ill need all the time i can to get the mako ready for another 1100 mile trip south

    How much fun would this be!?! We’re over here in Texas on the coast. Once my kids are a little older, I’ll definitely do this with them! I’ve got a 1976 19 and my dad has a 23 inboard. I’ll be telling the wife about this

      Freespool....my daughter was three weeks old when we drove down. Changed diapers on the tail gate. She had her first boat ride on TC within hours of pulling into sandpiper.
      don’t wait, just do

        My 2 year old boy Marlin loves the boats lol. We had him in the duck blind at 10 months, loves the ranch, and loves the gulf. He’s spoiled and gets to hang out on the big sport fish boats I work on. And my girl Mellie just turned 1 month old. As soon as my 19 is put back together, it’s showtime. Maybe we will make it this year 🤞🏻

          I will hopefully be in the Bahamas on Bimini from the 23rd to the 27th. Stupid rona canceled the trip last year so fingers crossed that we get to go this year. It's the annual "Crossing For A Cure" for cystic fibrosis. I'll be doing the support boat thing for my crew who will be crossing the gulf stream from Bimini to Lake Worth FL

              I make the trip ever year from Clermont. We can meet on 75 if you want an escort. It really is a great time

                Mark, I'm going to start the planning for it now. The wife and kids and I will be towing the 282 over. Look forward to buying you a beer.

                      Sorry, probably should have included that. I've never been able to make it for a Funament but I'm dying to. Places to stay for starters. Where do most people get a place at? We wold only be able to make it for about 3 nights. I'm mainly just interested in meeting all of you fine folks, hanging at the sandbar while the kids play and possibly poking out for some fishing depending on how far youd have to go. I've never been out to Destin and know zero about the area.

                      Respectfully,
                      Matt

                        Most of us stay at Sandpiper Cove. It has a ramp,dockage and some condos allow for trailer parking.This is a very laid back family-oriented funament. There are lots of things to do so you won't any problem finding things. We all hang out together quite a bit at the sandbar and we eat together a lot as well. Where are you traveling from?
