We're going on Friday, and to SSCA gam on Saturday.

Try Mexican Cafe on Forest Drive & Edgewood - the food is mediocre but the margaritas are so kickass you won't notice

Does anyone have suggestion for a few good places to eat in the evening? I guess places that are off the beaten path will be better.

I'm going Saturday and expect to buy a bunch of junk.

Is there any possible strategy to park close enough to conveniently drop packages and avoid the shuttle bus?

I'd love to go, but they won't let me out of here this year and I've got Eagles/Cowboys tickets for Sunday - so you know where I'll be! on Sunday

I second the idea of sailnet members meeting if possible - 'tis why I posted the original note.

Contact me at j munson at his dot com if you'd like to meet Saturday morning.

Sincerely,

/s/ Jon C. Munson II

I wish I could, but it won't be possible for me this year.

Sorry Jon, can't meet with you this year . I can't go until Sunday. It looks like Sunday will be better in terms of weather.

It was a wet one today. Not much fun for clambering around boats.

Hopefully that translates to less people cramming in on boats.

Ok...so I went...

Instead of curing my desires for having a sailboat (you know how window shopping can sometimes do that), I'm even more "on fire" to have a boat of my own...this is not good methinks...

I went aboard several, OK, many, yachts, and found that I liked Island Packet (the 445 is what I went on) most. I looked at the Tayana that was there and a few others including Alden and Morris. They're all beautiful. Of them all, the Morris boats had the absolutely, hands-down, most gorgeous lines of them all. A sailor's ship. The IP 485 is now my newest dream for a liveaboard.

I did spend quite a bit of time chatting with one of the Johnstones (J/Boats) and really enjoyed those boats - right up my alley for cruising and speed. If the money were mine, I'd nab a 120...

My brother met Mr. Gozzard - the designer of the Bayfields (or at least some of them). He was on a Gozzard - loaned by the new owners to the show. I really enjoy the "old boat" detailing he puts into his designs.

I did purchase the SLAM foul weather gear - good price and well made stuff. I recommend it. Used it yesterday for a bit to take the chill out of the Bay when we went out for a couple of hours.

At any rate, I didn't fall asleep until sometime after 11 and then kept waking up - I wasn't able to settle down after the show.

Anyone got a cure for this, ahem, problem?

The show was a blast - I'm looking forward to next years!

Back to the marine architecture books...

Jon
