Corpus Christi, TX - Harbor Lights Parade - WE WON!

Last year, we put about 9000 lights on the boat, and came in 3rd Place in the Sailboat Division. THIS year, we read the rules, pulled out all of the stops, and won 1st in the Sailboat Division, and 1st Overall! WOOHOO! Won trophies, wine, and $$ off of our slip rental!





















And, Tammy, who helped us, wrote a blog with the photos she took (some above):

It was actually less than last year, where we were concerned about hitting our 8KW max. This year was maybe 60% of last years number.

This was her blog from last year:
