Re: What do you think about starting a Pacific Seacraft Owner's Association?

I feel an organization is very different than a forum. The "organization" would also include member lists, regional areas and technical exchange, etc but would also include raft-ups, picnics, boat shows, and sailing trips to interesting destinations. The idea of the "organization " is get the boat out of the slip and go some place.
Obviously trips would be local or regional in most all cases. Starting the list is the beginning to find the body of interest and the regions (areas) that would support the activities. Let it grow!

I had the same thought but Bob, the guy who runs the site you refer to site is posting to this thread. Maybe it might involve a organized collection of information, list of owners and boats, list of web site and even a occasional newsletter?

I attended one of the Pacific Seacraft rendezvous on Catalina Island around 10 yours ago. Great opportunity to see how others have done whatever on their boat and exchange ideas etc. I would definitely attend another.

I think it would be a good idea. In the early days when Mike and Henry started PS they held annual rendezvous in Southern California and clam feeds in Annapolis. The camaraderie was good and much technical info was exchanged. It would make a good central go to point.

Re: What do you think about starting a Pacific Seacraft Owner's Association?

These sound like wonderful ideas. I've been struggling with how to take the next step... we have 51 people who have indicated interest in the PSOA. Which is great. So now I have a spreadsheet of the people who have indicated interest. That's not an owner's association... that's a spreadsheet

The advice I've gotten from my friends at the CDSOA is that it would make sense next to form a board with a few people who have indicated strong interest in the PSOA and who are willing to put in some time to help get this off the ground. Can you give me a call so we can chat... I've spoken to a few other people and we're getting closer to forming the board.

I'm going to send you a PM with my phone number.

Bob:

First of all, you deserve kudos for your initiative in getting the ball rolling on the formation of an association for owners of Pacific Seacraft vessels, and all the effort that you have individually put into its creation.

With regard to running down all of the PSC owners, please keep in mind that all of the Flickas and PSC 25s, as well as a lot of the Dana’s (design LOA 27’3’’) are not capable of being documented due to regulatory requirements, i.e., 27’ OAL and 4 tons weight minimum displacement; they may constitute an “invisible” class of prospective members. Moreover, there are more than a few PSC owners in Europe, particularly the UK, not to mention those in who are out there actually cruising.


Our suggestion is that someone (we would be happy to volunteer to do so) draft a brief paragraph as a press release for submission to magazines/periodicals such as Latitudes & Attitudes, Good Old Boat, Cruising World, Ocean Navigator, Spinsheet (Chesapeake Bay), Latitude 38 (San Francisco Bay/Northern Calif), The Log (Southern California), and 48 North (Seattle/Pacific North West), as well as the Seven Seas Cruising Association, to inform readers that a PSC Owners’ Association is being formed in the United States.

Additionally, it is suggested that if we can get enough participating members, that Steve and Reid Brodie be petitioned for recognition of the Association by the factory and that we request that a link to the Association’s forum be placed on their website, as well as the web sites of their dealers.

Given that membership will be nationwide, it may also be advisable to create regions – perhaps Northeast, Tidewater/Chesapeake, Southeast, Gulf Coast, Great Lakes, Pacific Northwest, and Pacific Coast – to facilitate social interaction and information such as a period rendezvous.

If the PSC Association can gain traction, it would be a valuable asset that may be able to ultimately support a vibrant community that provides the following in addition to a discussion Forum:

• Photo Gallery;
• Member Directory / Map;
• PSC Model Info and Comparisons of the specifications for all PSC models;
• PDF File Downloads of brochures and past advertisements; and,
• Calendar of upcoming events such as boat shows, PSC owner Rendezvous, etc.

Once again, Bob, thanks for all you efforts.
