    Anyone going down. Looks like they are going to have the docks at WFP bouyed off but it says on their site you can anchor right by the take off point. Looks like a good time.

    Going to try. Weather looks good and looks like they made it boater friendly. Nice that they had info on their site for boaters.

    We started to head down but all the radio chatter made it sound like a mad house. we went to the cove and after the storm blew through, i picked up quickly, sounds like alot of blowing around down there.
    Looked like a lot of fun otherwise.

    Anchoring was a challenge with the changing winds and the crowd of boats. Really surprised there were so many craft. Was a good time and am sure they will come back judging by the crowd on shore.

    Had a blast...till the wind and the storm came through. Spent the next half of the day making sure a 65 foot megayacht didn't knock the bow off my boat...good times!haha

    What an amazing event! Some predicted there were more boats than Thunder.

    As for us, we had a band event we had to get home for in the evening, so we scooted around the edges. Our little Whaler handles rough seas pretty well, but the ride down past Cox Park was absolutely horrible. With all the 30-40' boats making wakes, there were times I thought I was on Lake Erie with its 6' swells located close together. We saw an overloaded pontoon that we thought was going to go over.

    Once we got down there, it was hard to describe how many boats were packed in. I thought everybody did pretty well considering that there was wind and current. We were hoping to tie off with Capt. Joe, but there way no way we could get to him, much less expect to skip out early. Joe's got some pretty good pictures that I'll see if I can share to the PortKY.com Facebook link.

    I was at Cox Park dock at 10:30. There were so many boats going by, I ripped the cleat off the dock! Dropping off after the event we just used the dingy to get people to shore. For future reference.....never tie up there unless they fix it....it was sad how bad of shape it was in. Huge bolts sticking out,most all of the wood on the front of it was broke off, and I think I took out the last cleat!
