Hey y'all Mike, Gerald, Rich, I need exact locations of this other boat ramp down there by Sawgrass I have to get an email out to all attendees heading there and it's going to be a pain in the you know what!! I don't want any lost people after driving all the way from Tampa or really anywhere. Also just to make sure the Loxahatchee Road meeting place is off 441 South correct?!! Will someone please call me tomorrow? I am stressing now about everyone finding thier launch sites!! maybe overstressing but still stressing now :confused3:

Mike I didn't get the check today, I will have it tomorrow (Monday), I will pick the stuff up brother give me something to do.

:scratch: :scratch:
If we are smart, we won't fill up all the parking spaces on the edge of the water, then we
can launch, a couple of boats at a time... maybe, 3-4. :cheers: :cheers:


Let us respect, the operation that is North of our launching area...
Once they launch, 8-ish, they have BIG rigs... their first customer ride isn't till 10. :cheers:


:old_glory: :proud: :old_glory:


Be safe !! Oooh, bring rain gear...

Lyle is the reason we are leaving by 8am. He doesnt start tours til 830 but does use the concrete ramp for his boats. We can work around him but need to have all boats and riders outta there by 8

Enjoy it now because when it gets 15 you're troubles start.

I am assuming Stub is the ramp about 3.5 miles north of Sawgrass? Just tell me when I need to be there.
Yes Batch & Ron, the stub canal IS 3.5 north of Sawgrass Park on the east side of hwy 27 and the other park lot is one quarter mile north of that on the west side of hwy 27. I drove in yesterday and there is 40 to 50 spaces at each lot. The STUB has 2 ramps, one paved, the other is rock. There will be a banner in the middle of hwy 27. Hwy 27 is a 4 lane with a wide medium strip. There is nothing else there so the crowd will be easy to see. :cheers: :salute: :toothy7:
From the north, The ramp is maybe 37/38 miles south of any civilization (South Bay) and 5 or 6 miles past some lited pump stations on their left.

I have a few extra parts and supplies too. A couple different starters, an alternator, a mag, bolts. If any one has an extra fuel pump, I would like to have a couple here, they always fail. I have a battery charger, jump cables and oil. (kinda short on inteligence some times) :roll:

NO ONE should leave their trailer in the water, we will need ALL the space to launch 50 BOATS IN AN HOUR. Some one should get the tag #s of the inconsiderate (except dissabled, check the tag for ID) and post it here.

:proud: :old_glory: :usa: :florida: :rebel:

The Stub Canal Ramp is 38 miles south of South Bay on Highway 27, or coming from the south, it is 5 or six miles north of Alligator Alley.

Here is a link to FWC's boat ramp finder; https://public.myfwc.com/LE/boatramp/pu ... fault.aspx (This is handy site you might want to save)

For The Loxahatchee road ramp; Go to the site above=== Choose list by county=== select, Palm Beach===go to page 4 on list===select, Loxahatchee rd FWC-73

For Stub Canal Ramp on Highway 27; Go to site above===Choose, List by County===Select, Broward===go to page 5 on list===select, Stub Canal FWC-WB-23

Hope this helps. :rebel: :florida: :old_glory:
