    For LLOYD............................Yes.. I hold a USCG (Coast Guard) \MastersLicense oceans and,near coastal. Plus an AB unlimited and a QMED. I dont own any boats, I usually work in the Gulf, taking supplies to Oil Rigs. However when oil prices go down I work on research vessels. That gig I did on the A&M boat we chased sperm whales ..They have a spring break too at Viosca Knoll where they eat squid and mate. I wouldnt fish or crab if someone paid me huge bucks.. That show deadliest catch, the reason they have so many vessels go down is because the owners wont put money into them, In fact I dont even own a personal boat.. I rent them.

    yah..I dont ever think I will be a Landpeople anymore...The money is good, the scenery changes, and I can back up to a rig and play the Star Spangled Banner and they all take their hard hats off..Plus the dolphins come to the vessel and beg for hot dogs.

    Many a raucous night spent at the FloraBama... That place took Hurricane Ivan to the dome and came out pretty ok... One night in particular this cat named Bob Ritchie was raising all manner of hell up in there... But man that Kid could Rock...

    Hawaii for me is tops more specifically Oahu or Maui
    2nd would have to be the beach at the Sandals Grande in St. Lucia
    Then I guess I would have to go Bahammas

    Hanauma Bay on Oahu is awesome!!!!!!! Actually any beach on Hawaii is great although I thought Waikiki was way too crowded

    I once spent a week on Eluthera Island in the Bahamas. Some friends had a villa with an extra room, so all my wife and I had to pay for was plane tickets and food and booze. We have a semi-private beach on the Atlantic side, just a little one that only three villas had access to. I never saw anyone from the other two villas. That's my favorite beach ever.

    Eluthera is pretty amazing. I have never felt more relaxed than after unwinding for a week there. There's one point at the north end where the island is only about 100 yards across, made of solid rock, and you've got the blue green calm Carribean on one side and the dark blue roaring Atlantic on the other side. I've never seen anything like it.

    I'm not that big a beach fan. I have a few faves that I've visited, though. I don't like when they're crowded and it's a million degrees outside (which describes most beaches in FL where I grew up). I prefer any place that's off-the-path so I can really enjoy the nature.

    Clearwater Beach - for a popular beach, it's my favorite in FL. Lots of room, clean, nice gulf breeze, gorgeous clear water.

    My wife and I recently spent a day on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman. Gorgeous views of the Caribbean (of course) and a lot of trees along the edge for shelter. Really enjoyed it.

    My other favorite was when my wife and I were honeymooning on big island in Hawaii. I don't remember the name, but we went to a park in the NW of the island somewhere. We had to hike down through the forest to get to the black sand beach. There was a little lagoon inland that got fed at high tide. To me it was a perfect tropical paradise. Hardly touched by man and some good hiking through the wilderness.

    I'll always remember Ivan. That bastard blew down my fence and destroyed my shed!

    I actually got married in Clearwater Beach in the middle of Hurricane Frances, a couple weeks before Ivan.

    Him and Hank Jr. went on a fishing charter here in the panhandle once.. The Scuttlebutt is that they stayed in the cabin the whole time "gettin their head together" and the n were too paranoid to come out and fish.. Thats prolly not true, but boat captains like sea stories. I did see "The Snake" passed out there one night.

    +1 on the Turks and Caicos, Brent! My new favorite vacation destination, just got back a week ago from an awesome vacation there!!

    The most beautiful turquoise water colors you could possibly imagine.

    The first pic is actually the view from our balcony at the resort we stayed at, and the people swimming are my wife and three kids.

    Note a drink in hand at all times is a requirement there, as shown in the last two pictures!

    Don't forget Jones Beach in NY. Over sixteen miles of pristine state park with as much depth of sand water to dunes as anywhere. Terrific boardwalk and a cool ampitheatre for concerts. Bay on the other side.

    Our current beach is the Delaware shore, including Dewey Beach. Also very nice. For Florida there are some beaches in the Everglades state park that you can only access by boat. You'd think you were in another world.
