For those traveling north from The Eagle to the Rodeo, water is still high on Inverness side of locks and some boats (Carmotor) won't fit under bridge . CCSO has been handing out tickets for road crossing , so be careful. It maybe safer to just trailer to Hernando till water falls some more.

Great turnout despite the weather. Between 160 and 170 boats were there throughout the day. I didn't get to stay for whole event , had to tow down boat in. The biggest surprise of the day was the relative closeness of the Carmotor and AC classes . The AC boys just look smooth and effortless and the car boys were pushing it to the edge and beyond to keep it close.
It was great to see that many boats and not many issues. That many boats and all in one small portion of the swamp. That many boats spread over the entire 68 miles of the Loop is one thing , but to be concentrated in just the North end . Kudos to everyone for keeping it safe.
