And, hopefully, the weather will be more benign for Lou than last attempt.

If we can get a firm list, we will try to get everyone in close proximity. That is except for Ted whose boat looks so dam good we hide him in a back corner.

Between those times our entertainment committee will be thinking up things to keep you entertained and informed. I haven't heard anything from Oliver lately, but if he's around keep an eye on your shoes.
That ain't happening again. I'm on the floating dock, not pigeon holed in the corner again. Sean and Justin are just finishing up the fall waxing. Between Larry's new windows and my wax job, you better get somebody working on Moonstruck, just say'n.

Ted

Ted

So, that's how it is. We were running two shifts on Moonstruck. Now, we will be adding a third shift.

Sometime in June. We want to go to Nova Scotia, Ottawa, and then see friends in Ontario. No schedule set just yet. We left the day after Memorial Day last time. Probably a little later this time.

I didn't know having a "Bristol " boat was a requirement. It is five months away so if I start now it still won't be in Bristol shape. LOL

Well, it didn't start out that way. We got sand bagged by Ted. You can blame it on him. I'll tip the dock master to put him in the back corner again.

I've been aboard Ted's boat. I can tell you that there's Bristol and then there's "Ted." Two entirely different categories.

I've been aboard Ted's boat too, but that was before he began the 16 month long restoration. Even then, it was better than my boat.

Do we have to bring a boat? It takes me a month to get to Florida from Texas in the slow boat.

I guess I could tow my dingy there and have something to ride around in. 😂

Larry, the SW FL Chapter of TF has been very quiet. Do you think you can charge the batteries on your scooters enough to make it over?

Dude, bring the dinghy. However, keep in mind if a boat pulls out for a ride we all go along.

Your attention, please. It gives great pleasure to report that our first seminar has been booked. Howard, who is a new expert on this, will be presenting his program on the various methods and uses of TP in a marine head. It is expected to take 3 hours. So, there will be 3 TF CE credits to those attending. Thank you, Howard.
