So far, the Hacker runabout is the only classic he has... that I know of.


Higgin's covered shed would be a good place for you, assuming you can handle the commute. Kent Narrows in the meantime, maybe? You could get from there to St. Michaels on one charge...

Are you sure you really want to go to the show? Seems like several options are available if you really, really want to go. Towing is perfectly acceptable until close enough to complete the trip under your own power. Same with renting a genset for the crossing and removing it at a nearby marina. Then make your grand entrance. Just seems if I really want something I will go to great lengths to make it happen.

I really really want to go! & I will be there - staying at a cabin through the weekend, plus I volunteered to help.

The real issue is getting a tow to/from on calm water. Peeps have to make a special trip to pick me up & take me back...on the days when the sea is calm.

I just think that's asking a lot - those big boats don't have to wait for calm seas. If they want to leave on Sunday, they can. I don't want to infringe on others where they have to adjust their schedules around me. 😢

Starside was there last year, so everyone knows my boat. I was also asked to help w judging this year, so that will be cool cuz I can learn a lot from that experience.

I wonder if there are any classic boat shows on this side of the Bay...doesn't Solomon's have one?

Pretty sure this is our dock neighbor I mentioned before, 1940 Hackercraft.

Oh that's funny. Small world! & I think I met him at Higgins.

The show was good this year but some of the boats didn't make it cuz of the bad weather.

I loved judging. It was hot, though, & we were judging the big cruisers & we were all sweating after visiting so many engine rooms. But we got to judge some beautiful boats. We had both over 40 & under 40 cruisers.

A beautifully restored Trumpy won in the above 40 class, & a hardtop Lyman won in the below 40 class. The latter is also in our neck of the woods. There was a 1935 constellation there that I strongly voted for - I think she got a special award - she was immaculate.

Yep, always a nice show. We didn't get there this year, but we make it over for the shows sometimes...

Starside, have not heard from you in a while. How are you doing with the conversion? Is it working out the way you were planning? I know you had it running....

Thanks for checking in!

Yeah, her conversion is done & I've been cruising quite a bit this summer. Even built up my confidence to cruise solo. I do well docking, too! Just had to practice.

Re the engine, she just needs a bigger prop but I'm getting that done this winter during her haul out.

She's become quite popular at the marina, too. Lots of folks interested in her conversion & im always taking peeps out for cruises. I like having a crew! & she truly Wows a lot of people. Many sail boaters approach me cuz they seem more apt to convert but a few power boaters are big fans, too.

Anyway, I love how she handles. The electric motor is truly quiet & she handles better than before.

😎 & im always looking for crew!
