OBYC Christmas Boat Parade December 3, 2022

This year's OBYC Christmas Boat Parade was a great time for all.

Unfortunately, this year's turnout was a little lower than expected. I, for one, told Commodore Tate that I would have to be on his beautiful Meridian 381 with him and Kim because I had NO desire to drive from the flybridge of my boat. After all, it was sooo cold and windy even Santa wouldn't have done such a thing.

Brandon and Darlene were rip-roaring and ready to go once all the electrical issues were resolved.

The parade started as usual in Oro Bay and proceeded to the Anderson Island Ferry Dock, where the Star lighting was being held. Due to the rough weather conditions, we moved a little slowly. I imagine we looked like a couple of fishing bobbers in a pot of boiling hot water.

I have attached a few pictures and will post more as they become available.

Don't forget the Christmas Party is this weekend

Santa has our back, ensuring no one sneaks up on us and takes our totties.

Brandon and Darlene always do a great job getting everybody ready for the Christmas Parade. Those lights reflecting off of that water sure are beautiful.

Tina and I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a wonderful new year.


Vice Commodore
