"Hey guys, lets try and get the boat into the pool at the Sagamore Hotel!"
(My house mates were playing a show there that night and I thought it might be possible to get the boat into the pool and row around during the party.)
I called Alexis from Scope and explained our plan. All we needed was a way to get the boat to the other side of Miami Beach.
"I'll see what I can do" said Alexis.
Within a few minutes, a truck was on its way to bring us and the boat to the Sagamore.
The drivers had already been briefed on the mission.
We carried the boat down an ally on the side of the hotel, where the bands had been loading in their equipment,
past the bar.
An unwitting hotel employee helped us hide the boat in one of the poolside cabanas.
Now there was nothing to do but wait for the right moment.
The party started to fill up with people.
Slowjam's band played their set - a salute to 46 years of raves and rave culture.
Miami Ice Machine played next.
And then we snuck into the cabana and pulled out the boat.
Duke had fashioned a sail out of a hotel sheet.
We floated around for a while until the hotel management asked us to get out.
They threw us out over the back fence. (here is where the camera went missing)
Luckily Jose Krapp took pictures of the whole thing.
