It seems to me that there are quite a few members of this forum in Washington state, and the San Juans in particular.* I'd be interested in knowing how many there are, as I'm thinking of hosting a holiday get together to meet some of you.* We are currently in Anacortes.* So, the question is, would there be any interest in a get together?* If so, how many folks would make the treck to Anacortes?** Perhaps in a couple weeks?.........Arctic Traveller

I'm in if it fits my busy schedule. I'm an hour away. How about Cafe Adrift?*

My boat is in Anacortes and I'm trying to get there next weekend.* It would be great to get together if the timing works.* After that I probably can't get there until January.

Our boat is in Seattle and we hope to be there by Christmas, leaving for Vancouver Island probably by mid-January.* We're definitely up for a meet and greet if it happens in that timeframe.

This may be my first post of this forum. We live in Port Orchard and keep the boat, a Mariner Seville 37 PH, at the PO yacht club. Will have to take a rain check on the meeting but would enjoy getting together later if it becomes a regular thing. Unfortunently, my wife and I are spending the winter in Yuma, AZ where the temperature was close to 80 today. Sorry, am I rubbing it in? I do miss the boat however.

Capt. Jeff-

That sounds like a great idea. A Nice way to meet folks. We'll make it if we are in the area. Looks like we are gonna suffer for a few days in Hawaii up untill X-mass day. By the way we are really enjoying our new home port over here in La Conner.

Wonderful idea but I'm not sure the timing will be "right" for us.* We are in Brownsville, WA so the 2 biggest driving factors*are the weather and the Admiral.*

We too are going to the Seattle Boat show.

We bought a view lot in Anacortes that we hope to retire in in about six years. Currently we live in Redmond. I think it's a great idea but working at a hospital I never know when I'll be working.

Side note to Windmist... We also came close to buying a Seville 37 PH but couldn't come to terms. Seems to be a great boat.

RE: Washington State TF members

My wife is leaving me to visit her daughter and grandchildren, so I am left to my own demise, except Christmas Eve to take my dad to mass and day taking my dad around to see grandchildren.* His birthday was 10/29/10 turned 94, so I took his driving privilege away.* Revenge is sweet!* However, I am still his favorite son.* Only because I am his only son!*


*
The Seattle boat afloat show is a good time as most of us attend the show.* Since we use to moored where the Afloat show is, we also visit old neighbors and friends.* Plus our son owns two restaurants in Seattle and we know the owners of the Blue Water Bristo at the Afloat.* I have crawled to the boat many nights.* **It was not uncommon for find strangers wandering though our boat as they thought is was pat of the show.* We have met some very nice people that way.

Anyway whatever works.

Phil, don't call that number.* When I was despondent over my obscured stern light, I called it.* The calls had been out sourced to Pakistan.* They got all excited and asked it I could drive a truck1

RE: Washington State TF members

You guys (and gals) crack me up, I had no idea we had so many comedians here.* Hell, it would be a real shame if Phil / Fill ever learned to use the speel check.* Anyway, it sounds like sometime after the holidays would fit for most folks, probably during or after the boat show.* Would the preference be for an evening during the show, or perhaps the one after?* Were a bit of a drive North, but it sounds like several folks plan to do it anyway.* Currently, I'm thinking of having the M.A.G.* (meet and greet) at my home, but we could move it to somewhere more centrally located if it make sense.* I know it's going to be a bit like herding cats, but what says the people who want to attend?.........Arctc Traveller

We could have two on in Anacortes and one at the boat show. **Anyway set the date, time and place.* If we show up, we show up!* I know the owners of the Blue Water Bristol at the boat Afloat show, South end of LakeUnion.But then again there is HOOTERS.* One of my favorite places.* ******

Spel cheker?* You guys have been on me about my spelling from the first day I as on PMM, 10+ years ago.* That is how I got the name FILL, dubbed by Pope Thomas, FF, Dick Price, Iron Well, Phil Hong Kong and others.* Some of them have passed on, some are not longer interested in boats and some I still keep track of.* *

Well at least I stop replying in CAPITAL LETTERS.* I figure many of you are/where old so I would type in CAPS, so your can/could read it?*Not old old but sort of old.* Ok, I will shut up now.* ****

Geee Phil there is a few names from the past.
Dick Price and Iron I havn't heard of for years.
As years go on we forget more and more, must be an overflow plate in our head as extra comes in some just falls out the back.
Spellin is not that important if you read fast.
