It's that time of year again and I hope to see some Sail Netters at the Maine Boat Builders show this year.

Once again I will be working at the Mobile Marine Canvas booth with my buddy Seth. I know I will at least be there on Saturday. Unfortunately Sunday I have prior commitments. I will put my screen name under my real name on my boat show badge so you'll know which guy I am in the booth.

Feel free to stop by and say hello! Oh and let's not forget the eye candy...

Anyone going??

Anyone else going this year??

This is a GREAT show and is unlike the "mass production" boat shows. You will actually see some of the finest craftsmen and builders in the boating industry!

I will be working at the Mobile Marine Canvas booth with my buddy Seth. I will at least be there on Saturday and possibly part of Sunday but that looks doubtful. Unfortunately Sunday I have prior commitments.

It's great fun

I live in central Maine and try to get to the show every year. I want yesterday, Friday, and it was as good as ever. If you can get there, you owe yourself the treat. Just ignore the power boats...:)

I went on Saturday and picked up a Fein Multimaster kit... Maine Sail is a bad influence.. when I stopped by the Mobile Marine Canvas booth, he had one... and convinced me to get one... :) It's really all his fault... really... the fact that I've wanted to get one for a while and have about a billion projects I can use it on had nothing to do with it...

Funny... I use the same excuse when I buy a new tool for the boat.... but honey, Maine Sail said I NEED this tool to do the job right ... ;)

That just shows what a wise man you are... but I bet the Admiral doesn't buy it one second... ;) You're better off manning up and taking your lumps for it honestly... :D

I've eyeballed that unit more than once. Who'd you end up purchasing it from? Jamestown D. usually has decent prices on those, but I've never shopped around much.

I bought it from the Walter Tool Company, which is only a few towns away from me here in Massachusetts. They had the Multimaster Top box set with $100 of free accessories for $369. Jamestown distributors has the same kit for $399 without the $100 of accessories... so it was a pretty good deal. The best internet price I've found on it was still $388 or so... and no free accessories.

  • MultiMaster Top package includes:
  • 1 FEIN MultiMaster FMM 250 Q
  • 1 sanding pad
  • 5 of each type of sanding sheet, grain 80, 120 and 180
  • 1 universal E-CUT saw blade (29mm)
  • 1 HSS segment saw blade
  • 1 Carbide-tipped segment saw blade
  • 1 rigid stopping knife
  • 1 Profile sanding set
  • 1 dust extraction device
  • 1 sanding pad, perforated
  • 5 of each type of sanding sheet, grain 80, 120 and 180, perforated
  • 1 carbide rasp (triangular), perforated
  • 1 plastic carrying case
