No. It's a pouring site, with other distractions.

Sorry, not sorry. Had to go there.

Looking forward to the gather.

Glad to be here, for a while

Thanks for the call out, Kestrel. We have been her a few days and are getting the parts organised for some minor work that I need to do or have done.
Stop by and see us. We have both coffee and rum.
We are getting a set of davits built for the new to us center console dinghy, replacing the failed searchlight and tachs, then onto maintenence issues, oil changes, heat exchanger service, new impellers, change all fuel filters, etc, etc.
Sometime in December we do bottom paint, buff and wax the hull, etc, then go cruising for Jan and February.
Looking forward to seeing everyone in February.

No, not at all. I am just trying to get it up to a workboat level of finish and cleanliness. :-)

I saw Johnís boat about a week ago. He seems to be coming along nicely with the work.

On another note, we are coming up on mid-January. If you havenít made reservations at the marina do so. The marina is filling up.

Just. A word to the wise.

I for one am looking forward to seeing everyone.

Don, as you are the major doom of this gathering I fully look forward to see who has aged most me or you. Thanks for all you do brother, can’t wait for February. Watfa is in the major planning mode for our dinner, I’m sworn to secrecy but you’ll all enjoy it and many may have never eaten these dishes before. (No seafood in deference to Wendy)

Pretty soon I’ll ask for a count for the dinner so we can plan the groceries,booze, ect. We may have to have a cut off number around 30 as the boat’s galley is limited.

Just cause Don attracts all the women, doesn't mean he is the major "doom" of the gathering...

If dinner numbers get to big "and I know it wouldn't be fair to Watfa.... the "late comers" could be fed by alternate means/location so we don't interrupt the party too bad....so let me know if we need a secondary list.

The Captains lounge may be available....

You have more time than most of us, Feb 19 - 22 but the weekend is when most of the party will be. This year you have no excuse, I’ll send a Uber to get you. . Watfa cooks Saturday night (I think ). Wednesday is the barbecue joint, Thursday is either Don and Friday is either Larry (or swap those two days.

Greetings,
Thanks. Mr. B. How do you know how much time I have? I'm VERY busy. What with training my dolphins, celestial observations (They're here!), stock market manipulations (gotta keep the cows out of the sorghum), general cogitating, finding suitable gif's to keep you bunch edified, informed and amused, knitting socks and jumpers for the chickens AND counting and keeping track or my gold bullion. Hardly leaves time for my afternoon nap and smoke breaks.


I have no doubt you will send an Uber to fetch me BUT after having met me, I may have to walk back so I'm a bit leery of THAT very kind offer.


I will go so far as to consult with my parole officer to see if they can extend the range of the ankle bracelet. I almost didn't get off the last time I wandered out to the back 40 and got lost (somehow ended up @ Tammy Sue's House of Toilet Plungers). So, no promises. I'll try to get all my ducks in a row...

Errr....oh ya!!! It's my birthday that weekend, too! Really, I swear! No need to check my ID. (Nice try, psneeld!)

I'm looking forward to see the gang again too. Jack and I have a waterside AirBnB "Harbormaster's House" reserved on the same bay as the boats...just a short dink ride away.

We might try to steal a dinghy or two to get home some nights.

Senor RT. Your missive above is exactly why you need to attend, we all demand the right to meet you (it’s in our Bill of Rights). If you need help getting your ducks lined up Don can provide some excellent help, he has experience herding cats to make this happen and I’m sure some of our electronics dudes can adjust your ankle bracelet to make it appear your anyplace your parole officer requires you to be. Hopefully your dolphins can spare you for a few days and you will grace us with your greatness.

LOL! They won't let us back into the Taj Mahal of 2 years ago. That was one of the weirdest rentals I've ever been involved with. The place was stuffed to the gills with junk everywhere. This place actually looks like a much nicer joint than I normally qualify for.

This year should be relaxing being on the water as Jack and I solve all the world's problems over a beer. (In Jack's case, I use the term "beer" very loosely.)
