And in the same vein, just so you know, I'm more of a power boat guy, I just hang with a bunch of sailors. So, Tuesday nights are just us hanging on the shore, when weather permits, or on a buddy's 38' sailboat. Beer and brats, mostly. During the season, his boat is anchored out in the river, where he lives. He has a power boat to go to and from.
As for the MASCF, our group (about 30 for this event) has a compound where we eat well, drink, and boat. Several of our group participates in the races. And several of their boats are built by us (I help a bit). So basically, we're boat builders(they insist I'm one of them). We're about to start an historic build at Mount Vernon (Geo.Washington's Home) of a 18th century "punt", done in period clothing, using period tools.
I'll PM you my cell#.
