I'm looking forward to a ride across the lake. I'm not sure of crew... I might be solo

Don, we might be taking our land yacht, small 24 ft RV. Any place near by for that sort of thing?

I'm in regardless of the dates. When their set, I will make my reservations.

I'm hoping the dates won't conflict with my grandson's first birthday party. If it does, I'll be bummed.

Don,

Drove up to Ft. Pierce on Sunday to look at our lot (deepwater in Queens Cove). Had lunch at Cobb's Landing. Nicer than I remember it being!

We may all be in trouble. Young Oliver is old enough to have a drivers license.
I know, we can let him drive the bus. He's still too young to drink!

A designated driver. Splendid idea. Hopefully there won't be a shortage of designated drinkers...

OK, it's coming together now. We have several classes and seminars lined up. Oliver will give a talk on installing and networking Faruno electronics. Larry (Healhustler) Will give a long dissertation on how to spend your entire retirement rebuilding a Manatee. Forky will give a demonstration on the proper etiquette of using a transom shower. There will be an unveiling ceremony of the Sarca ExCel. Ted and Scott will give a seminar about how to untie the lines, and actually leave the dock. Other activities are under consideration.

By the way it has been discovered recently that Parks' (HopCar) marine distributorship has just been a front for his illegal Cuban coffee import business. He will be here if he makes bail.

The second day class schedule is shaping up. Capt. Jack (Sailor of Fortune) who runs the ocean going tug Atlantic SALVOR will do a class on towing. Among other things he will cover is what to do when the tow hawser weighs many times the weight of your boat.

LarryM on HOBO who has cruised extensively with give his best cruising tips such as "do not deploy your paravanes before departing your slip".

We will miss Richard on DAUNTLESS as he has fought his way past the Loch Ness monster, and is now cruising the British Isles.

Greetings,
It IS unfortunate some of our western members can't attend. I hear Mr. mp's lecture on "How to take a picture of anything and everything" is quite riveting and Mr. mb's talk "Buttocks-The bottom line" is quite informative as well.

Don, per chance, do you have the name of the marina correct? I only ask this as you can't seem to get Sailor of Fortune's vessel name correct. It's Atlantic Salvor.

Thanks, Ted. It has been edited. I'll check the name of the marina on the sign as I go to dinner in a few minutes.

i have just learned that David (dwhatty) may be coming south sans boat this winter. If we can work it out he will give his program on his cruising season in Maine. His talk will consist 90% of de-winterizing and winterizing.

Don,
Thought we had agreed that I was going to do the seminar on de-winterizing and winterizing.

Winterizing: Go to Florida in November.

De-Winterizing: Leave Florida in April.

Don't worry, Ted. David will probably be snowed in.
