We arrived at Venture Out on Cudjoe Key on Sunday May 24. I loaded the boat with all my Tarpon Flys Rods etc and put her in the water in the canal behind our rental. I tied off the bow and the stern with a bumper between the boat and dock. I woke up the next morning planning to run down to Key West and watch them sink the Vandenberg...never made it! The boat got caught under the pilings when the tide went out. The hatch was unlocked since I had just loaded all my gear and all my flys, back up GPS, back up two way, life preservers, cushions and all my stuff floated away. Total loss. Luckily I had the new camera to distract me for two weeks. So much for Tarpon season 2009...
