Re: Who from SailNet would you most like to meet in person?

Perhaps Gloucester on July 20? Lots of places to party and a very interesting place. We will be staying at The Crows Nest the 18th, 19th and the 20th. A very friendly bar. Remember it from "The Perfect Storm"? The 4th is already on the books. Would like to make it but....

For me cruising to Gloucester is a short day cruise. I'd be coming out of Boston Harbor, and it's about 35 miles.

If the weather is good, I wouldn't mind a bit!

That might work for me. I could ride my bike there!

I launched and began the rest of my life as a full time liveaboard cruising the BC coast on one of Brent's boats in 2005. The new addition of his book/manual has all that stuff in there (illustrated) plus other simple to build and practical do it yourself projects. Must say it is also a good read with some "Annie Hill" style simplicity discussion (except he said it first) about getting off the treadmill. This is my 4th copy. I don't lend in out anymore. I think he asks $20 or so plus postage.

Only if you absolutely promise, cross your heart, etc, that you will not bring up the topic of being rescued at sea or how it should be done. Nothing but fights every time you do.

The holding outside at Edgartown can be tricky, but its a great spot. Jul 4 is crazy busy, another weekend might be a better idea. The Edgartown moorings are a relative bargain around here. $40, IIRC. Well maintained and you can reserve them online, so you're not in a dash to arrive.

MAKE SURE to have a video camera available. I want to see the throwdown when you guys get drunk and start arguing AMVER. That will be classic.

I'm going to start with an anchor argument and then discuss guns aboard, before moving to AMVER. And I will start drunk, not get drunk.

It is our annual, and could become, the first annual Sailnet rendezvous celebration of one of the GREAT solo sailors, Blackburn!

Rumour has it, the great and wonderful mrs smacky will bail us out! sometime in some not so long ago distant future.......when she learns to use the force, and a light saber!

In the mean time, Captn aaron IIRC has the BIGGEST anchor!

I swear to God I would not bring that up.

Evelyn and I have zero interest in discussing that entire event at all.
The only time it comes up, is when asked about it, or indirectly when the question of "what happened to your GulfStar" happens.

I agree that the 4th would be "crazy busy". So, the following weekend perhaps?

Being a "New Englander", there is the ugly reality that the real "summer" is very short lived. That's why I keep focusing on July.
