I‘ve been researching the tiki boat business lately……. So when I got a call to do a Tiki Charter this last Sunday, I could not refuse.

I am the Captain of the Tiki boat that is at the beginning of the video. The girls are from Minnesota. They were celebrating 2 birthdays, so we hung at the sandbar for a few hours. I saw Alfred shooting video when we were on our way to downtown Fort Lauderdale…… so I 360’d the boat in front of him.

I must admit…… it’s the most ridiculous boat I ever captained, BUT, I had a great time.

I am from SoCal. For many years I lived in Phoenix. BUT……. I started going to Parker while still in diapers, and owned a vacation home there for approx 20 years, my dad owned a home there throughout my youth. I might know the desert around Parker even better than I know the river. My dad raced District 37 with both the Checkers MC and the Prospectors. My dad laid out the very first Check-Chase desert race out of Parker. We spent a lot of time on the water and in the desert! This site helps keep Parker and Havasu memories alive.

8 years ago I moved to Florida so that I could boat the Bahamas.

Your living one of my dreams. Good on you. Now that you have thrown that out here you are required to post videos and content about boating the Bahamas.:D

Hey John not a threat jack you but did your daughter ever end up buying a house here on the west side of Phoenix? I’d be interested in parking the motorhome there.

My daughters boyfriend purchased a landscaping business and they are using the RV spot for the trucks and trailers. Sorry, I wish I could help you out.

We were tied up to the seawall by the park for two weeks on our boat a few years ago. The New River is one of my favorite destinations in Florida.
That looks pretty gnarly getting a boat that size out

Yooooore about 2 hours away from me. Hit me up if you’re interested in seeing some of the springs around Deland/Astor. A few of my neighbors own vrbo’s, that I can get you a deal on.

Our mail address is green cove springs. We full time in moho so no need for vrbo. But may take you up on a ride.

I was thinking you were further north up by St. John’s River . We will be in Clermont next Monday for a couple of weeks which is fairly close to where you are.

That’s about 65-70 miles north, or down river from me. I’m just off the river south of Lake George. 🙂

lemme know anytime!

Can't deal with the guy talking. He just needs to shut up

Good luck with that 🤣
