In case anybody is missing it, there is a button at the end of Part 1 to go to Part 2, and the end of Part 2 to play Part 3.

Here are all three links:

A red boat would have made it- in one piece.

Terrific videos! Thanks Kelly & KB!!

Clearly, if you can't do the WaterTribe Everglades Challenge, you can find other things to do on an AI/TI.

Thanks again fellows.

Thanks all!

Just a reminder, Kelly is a very experienced waterman with a full lifetime of big water experience. He also carried a EPIRB & a Marine Radio among many items for repair and self rescue. As they say... DON'T TRY THIS A HOME! :)

I really enjoyed watching the video of this challenging trip. Looks like he would have greatly benefited from a splash guard. Thanks for posting it,

I was watching the video and feeling the water splash and the sensation of jumping the waves... uf, what an adventure! That was great Bob and the rest of the team.
Thanks for sharing it!
CONGRATULATIONS
