As I understand, the East German Judge will NOT be attending. Looking forward to seeing you all next year.

I've been lurking on this topic - as things got close we were going to make a call on whether we'd be going or not. Not sure if this has been brought up - pulled from Bob423's ICW Cruising group on FB concerning pump out services at FPCM.

"Diesel is available, but no gas and no pump out- not even on the docks. Due to construction of a new on-site restaurant. We were informed: "probably not until February". Cruisers and boaters will want to plan carefully and of course we all generally want to do the right thing."

Free pump out was always available at the fuel docks, fill with fuel and pump out the STUFF. It may be available when we are there, perhaps the dock master may know as our date gets closer. I don’t for see a problem as I’ll pump out before I head to the gathering.

The floating docks have in slip pump out. If for some reason the fuel dock pump out was out of commission, I'm sure a temporary spot could be found on one of the floating docks to facilitate a pump out. This is a municipal marina, and I'm sure they are bound by an obligation to make pump outs available.

You'd be wrong. We fuelled up least night and took a floating slip. No pump out either place. Contractor problems is what I was told.

They are expecting the pump out to be operational in February, of course that is not a guarantee.

PUBLIC NOTICE - FORT PIERCE REFRIGERATOR INSPECTIONS

When you arrive, please ensure your refrigerators are properly stocked and at prime operating temperature. There will be impromptu fridge inspections throughout the weekend. Photos of exemplary examples may be published with owner consent. Photos of empty fridges will be published without consent or exception!

Please note that fridge inspector(s) will have calibrated temp sensors. Demerits may be assigned and public shaming may occur for substandard temperature beverages. Below is the TF Fridge grading scale:

20F-31F - Too cold to hold but passing with an A+ if not frozen. Frozen beverages are cause for remedial training and retesting.

32F-39F - A Well done!! You should be proud of your attention to detail!

40F-44F - B Not bad for Kool Aid or a Coke...not so great for an IPA.

45F-49F - C Acceptable for morning juice and girly drinks only. Best if served with a paper umbrella.

50F or above - Fail! Next time, please plug your fridge into power before testing or buy more ice.


Notice to all participants: While graft and corruption are strictly forbidden, the sharing of quality adult beverages with Refrigerator Inspectors is highly encouraged, much appreciated and may have a slight effect on grading.

Applications are being accepted for the position of TF Refrigerator Inspector (RI).

Does this include your fridge?

For those who can’t maintain the perfect temperature, Slow Hand is happy to store your IPAs at the perfect temperature for a small percentage of what your store. Besides the glowing light from the reflected surface from Slow Hand means you’ll never lose track of your supply.

Absolutely! That's where the standard was established. I have a separate fridge dedicated to "Beer and Bait". Last IPA I pulled out yesterday was 38.4*F.

Unfortunately for me, Northern CA was having power outages due to high winds so my B&B fridge went 4 days without power and got as warm as 51* according to my temp monitor. No one at the marina notified me. Thankfully, my beer was fine (whew!) but my bait thawed and refroze. I was afraid it would be a moldy, smelly mess by the time I arrived 3 days later.

Fortunately, all was fine since it was double bagged and in Tupperware. It didn't even cause an issue with the Tupperware so I dodged a bullet.

The other 12V/120V NovaKool food fridge just kept humming along those 4 days on the house bank. No problem.

My boat is in Stuart waiting on a new mast/rigging, sail, etc. If itís finished by February maybe I can putt putt up the ICW.

Remind me what the slip availability is in Ft Pierce? Last time I tried to get a slip at the municipal marina they had a pretty long waiting list IIRC.

Maybe I can get Healhustler to ride with me.

Al are you bringing your boat or just shipping the fridges to Ft. Pierce.

Cardude after what you have been thru I’ll supply your beer. My advice is make your reservation now and cancel if you can’t make it.

Warm beer isn't going to alter Cardudes plans. He has been through some challenges and rose to the occasion. Refrigerator temps?...He ain't scared....

Ok good idea. Iíll call the marina tomorrow. Iíll gladly accept any beers handed to me, and will also bring a supply of some tasty rums.

Boat looks like crap right now obviously but maybe I can get pieced together by then. If not I could just cruise over there with my broken mast I guess.
