  • Mako Madness '05 Pixs

    Here are some photos from our 1st Mako Madness gathering in Destin Florida. The fishing wasn't great, but we learned alot and most importantly had a great time on the water. It was great to meet these guys and hopefully next year we'll have a few more boats involved, as well as a few more kids getting involved.

    You'll see in the pics that its such a beautiful place to do some boating and enjoy the sun. I have a keen eye for Mako hulls, so there are a few boats in these pics that weren't accociated with our gathering, but maybe in future years we can get them involved. Except the Law Enforcement Mako... but it was a nice looking Mako hull and I had to take a pix.[]

                    wow.... looks like everyone had a blast. I'm bumbed I could be there, would loved to have met everyone. I missed out for nothing too. My tennis team lost in 3 on Saturday during the semi-finals so I didn't even get to play. [:-(]

                    Ed, sorry this maybe some work but can you go through and put some names by the faces so we can all relate just a little bit more?

                      I did the best I could with names... I put in an email to Sailor to help me out with what I missed as well as Who went with what award.

                      Sailor did a great job making the awards... Home made plaques made from Teak! Awesome![)][)][)]

                        cool, start with those two really silly looking guys that keeps hogging the pictures. Man those two must really love having their pictures taken... The one the blue shirt has nice teeth though...Must have a really good dentist.... [:x)][:x)][:x)]

                        seriously though.

                        Those plaques are nice. I noticed them earlier and was about to ask where you got them from.
