Re: June 23/24

I know the Passafiume/Crowe group is coming from Louisville.  I'll be hustling back from New York on that Friday to sail.  I reckon we'll have Jason, Peter, Vic Goodman, Bill Manwaring, Tom Saccone and several others I can't think of right now.  Doubt the Michigan guys will come since they have big boat sailing going on.  Look forward to seeing you!    smile

Re: June 23/24

I can't speak for all the Michigan contingent but, I will not be able to make this event.  Doug is correct.  I am in the middle of the big boat season.  Hoping to make the Lake Lemon Regatta in September though.

Re: June 23/24

Doesn't "working on putting my house on the market" basically consist of "Hello, [insert name of favorite realtor here].  Put my house on the market.  I'm going sailing"?     big_smile

I won't be sailing our regatta either.  I'll be on my way to New York to sail in the Y-Flyer Internationals.  I'm keeping my house.    lol

Re: June 23/24

Sounds great. I'm at the Port Hole Inn house Friday night and borrowing Andrew's camper Saturday. Stopping in Evansville on the way up Thursday to enjoy the Tropicana. I stop in Chattanooga on the way back Sunday to enjoy one night in the mountains before returning to the oppressive heat of Hotlanta.  I talked to Ed Hinton and he's coming so we should have a decent little crowd.
Stop by and I'll buy you a beer. Bringing a few selections from the southern breweries.

Re: June 23/24

Couple of things - Doug, your finishing comment above, "I'm keeping my house" was a true spontaneous LOL!

Brian, I'm still stuck on a camper that I can put my boat into with the dolly.  A single axle 12' V nose covered trailer will fit a Force5 - then with some mods it can have a window, vents, queen bed in the back folding table and chairs... Coolers etc. I'm working on putting one together someday.

With good health I'll see you in 12 days

Re: June 23/24

Looking fwd to Spruce Run and socializing. Keith is about to build the trailer you speak of. I think you go 16-20 feet. Price diff isn't much and the few extra feet would be nice.

Re: June 23/24

What Rob is looking at is just long enough to fit the Force 5 and with it being aluminum he will still only be a single axle and be able to tow it with his current vehicle.
