Emerald Coast Provides Stormy Welcome

The 20th annual Emerald Coast Poker Run presented by the Florida Powerboat Club is upon us, and although the weather didn’t quite cooperate for Friday’s fun run, all the boaters who hauled their boats to Destin, Fla., managed to have a great time.

The skies ahead weren't very friendly, but the crew in Gary Miller's 39-foot Nor-Tech center console didn't let it ruin their day.

A special thanks goes to Gary Miller and his fun-loving crew from Texas for showing this editor a great time on the water no matter how much time we spent underneath the Miracle Strip Parkway Bridge seeking shelter from the thunder and lightning.

Seriously, Miller’s 39-foot center console from Nor-Tech Hi-Performance Boats provided an outstanding ride once the rain cleared up and he and his crew are sure to have some of the most fun on Saturday’s poker run up and down the Emerald Coast.
