Boat Show Review
I can answer your last question, in part. Very few SailNet message board participants showed interest in the Sunday meeting (mainly due to the day, I assume). The few who said they would try to make it had trouble rendezvousing, but John Drake and I (along with our companions) finally got together around 1645 for a bit. It was a great meeting and start of a friendship.
I was drinking Pusser''s rum, and the tab was surprisingly high considering the modest amounts.
