Those coming by boat be sure to make you reservations early. February is a very busy time at the marina.

Fort Pierce City Marina
772 464-1245

Dates for the Gathering Feb. 21-24, 2019
While I haven't talked to the marina, their website now refers you to Dockwa (online reservation service). Will talk to the marina tomorrow to see if there's a way to indicate that we are with the chosen one (The Don).

Ted, I called the marina just to give them a heads up. Of course no one was available to speak with. Left word for them to call back. Little hope of that. Oh well try again tomorrow. I just wanted to give them an idea of the dates and approximately how many boats.

They wake up in a new world every day at Fort Pierce City Marina. However, when the boats come in they find room somehow.

OK guys, here's the skinny. Dean, the marina manager, called me back this am. He said the best way to handle our group is to assemble the reservations to pass them along to him via e-mail. So, it looks like you will need to post as follows:

Captain
Boat Name
Length and beam
Days you wish to reserve

I will assemble them, and pass them along to Dean. He also said this far out he can't guarantee slip locations. I told him that we will probably prefer the long floating dock at gate A.

Dean's the man at the marina. His decision is final.

Hi Don

I sent the info to your aol.com email. I also cancelled Ted”s position on the dock so I won’t be embarrassed by his paint and the glow at night won’t keep me awake.

Thanks

Yeah, thanks a lot. We were counting on you as having a boat big enough to block some of the glare for the rest of us!

I would need one of Jack’s (Steve’s) vessels to block that much glow.

Irv, I already talked to Dean about getting Ted's old slip back. You know the one back in the corner and down in the hole where the glow will not bother anyone.

108 posts already for next year. Nothing like planning ahead. Lena and I are planning on being there for the month. You have to rest up.

Don: You may want to add Hobo to your roster so we all end up together. I’d hate to be with Ted in the cheap seats.

Perfect news on the placement of Ted’s Very Slow Hand. We all thank you, your my hero.

Larry. Watfa is counting on Lena to help share drinking the wine (sippy cups again this year) and food prep. I’m sworn to secrecy about what she has planned this year.

Hmm! Not feeling the love. Oh well, it's not what you know, it's who you know. See you on A dock in February.

I suggest we all chip in to bribe the dockmaster to move Ted to Scott’s usual dock and move Scott to our dock. Not to be mean but my boat looks pretty good next to Scott’s.

Scott it does look nice but none of ours can hold a Candle to Ted”s which gets new paint every six months and wax every month.

Hang in there Skippy, I like your boat leaks and all.

I'm with Scott. I think gloss is grossly overrated. There's a certain nautical charm and comfort in chalky white.

I consider my boat to be a good looker at 20 paces. Up close, she's got a lot of "character" and very mark tells a story.

I think of her as Comfortably Imperfect...which will be the name of my next boat, if needed.

You want chalky . Check out the big ass numbers bleeding through from when Wiilam was a troller. Chalky rules .
