We could have a workshop session about building a small boat, showing all the basics or maybe building a small boat.
I was thinking: if someone purchased a small boat plywood and epoxy kit, they might be able to leave the weekend with a boat at least ready to trailer home safely and do the finish work there. What a learning experience that could be for others. There's probably over 100 year's (or more) experience in this method of boat construction that attends these meets...
And, it would only take a small amount of time for each experienced builder - maybe 3-4 hours apiece... (I'd like to go fishing too)

For me it doesn't matter to much we have to come from far anyway, I'm thinking of combining it with a trip to California and maybe Vegas. 8) I like both options although I'm hanging more to the Sebastian (Capt Hirams) option.

That is a good idea, and if there is anyone part way through a build that wanted help with something, we could do little helps sessions as well (roll/tip, Kiwigrip, etc.)




Before I get too carries away, lets hear from those who would prefer Panahandle. I know there is a nice cobia run in the spring :)

There is some great fishing off P-cola and Alabama/Mississippi....rigs and deeper water aren't to far off.

How bad was the inshore fishing hurt by the oil. I know Port Saint Joe and Apalachicola did seem to be hurt too bad.

I was there this summer: traveled from Apalachicola to Mobile AL and did not see any oil problem. A few very small nodules on a beach here and there, maybe 1/2" diameter.

Let's not forget that we don't have to choose or more exactly, we can have 3 choices:
1. Sebastian on Florida East
2. Panhandle around Pensacola
3. Two meetings, one in each place.

I have friends and relatives that rely on the fishing industry as income and they haven't had any issues. There have always been tar balls washing up on the beaches....it seeps up from the sea floor naturally.
I went Snapper fishing this summer and it's like nothing ever happened.
