    Can Bob Hit Good Weather A Third Time?

    I think Bob is in good with the Lord, and the weather will cooperate for the third Georgia Subfest.

    How can you be certain, it is so far in advance? Unless you are speaking it into existence (at which point we will need to set up a shrine to you - LOL)
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

      Or, if it don't work out, Chamber of Horrors!

        It’s called weather history. That part of Georgia has had good weather for years on that date. Cool temps and low humidity.

          Last year was my first. And it was absolutely beautiful!

            Just razzing you.
            I agree with David, it is absolutely beautiful and it was my first time too. It is worth it to me to drive from Nevada to Georgia for this, that is how much I liked it. I am sure Carmel or other gatherings are just as fun, but what this format offers is a deeper, clear water to dive and run in.

              The first year the weather was beautiful but I believe the remnants of hurricane Sally had just cleared the area a day or two before the event. It was close.

                Fingers and toes are crossed! We just had a pow wow talking over foul weather plans, and honestly, unless it's howling windy with sleet, we have covered work areas, and I just grabbed a bunch of ponchos to hand out to skippers if it's rainy. Certainly a bit of rain won't hurt the boats!
