If you are waiting to go to a gathering......this post may be for you!

We intend to hold our 9th Annual gathering at Hontoon Island state park near DeLand Florida on March eighth to the tenth, 2022 Great time to get together with old friends and make new ones. The park requested that reservations be made online. They have a different vender and can be reached at the following link.

The St. Johnís river has many miles of great fresh water cruising and side trips. Many past attendees have arrived early and stayed late. Most everyone launches at Ed Stone park on highway 44 but there are many other launches on the river.

Please be sure to signup on this site so that we can plan properly. Of course thatís after the administrator sets it up. Iíll be posting more next month but we wanted to get the dates out.


Administrator please setup a signup and photo album....Thanks

We are planning to be camping at the KOA near Ed Stone park, and we will tow our Caracal Cat, center console, since we no longer own a C Dory

Yes, there are transient day slips for the restaurant, and transient slips in the Marina. for those who are camping and bring a boat. Thus only one launch and retrieval, instead of daily launches.

So looking forward to meeting some of Y'all in person. We are just getting used to our new 25 (working through list of names to be).

I just reserved slip 3A for the 8-10th... hope I didn't inadvertently nab someone's favorite spot.

Best

Photo of Hontoon Marina Slips. The park manager contacted me today and said the numbers of the slips are incorrect on the reservation web site. He was told they will fix them but they do not know when. These are the correct slip numbers.

See you at Hontoon.......Tom

Tom, I heard that there is a new reservation system. Since I reserved my slip last April, I did so under the old system. Do you know if there is a way to check to make sure our reservations were transfered over? I assume they were, or should be, since payment was made at that time. Thanks. Colby

Colby,

There are pilings as well as docks in the area, so perhaps you should bring at least four spare props, since you banged up three props last year.

You're welcome.

John

Thanks John for your concern. Laughing Four now. That one that got destroyed on the Oklawaha River in March was sent off and repaired, and it found another tree stump a few days ago. Just bent one tip this time, but still too much vibration to continue using it. I'll only carry my usual two spares when I come down, so will just park the boat if I have to use both of them.
