How about asking Chuck? I think he can get you a deal on a slip.

I did thru the website. It is a bit difficult to find but its there. There is a link at the top of the page with all the boat pictures. It is $20 for the whole weekend! That's a sweet deal. They usually go for $20 a day.

Alright! I reserved one this morning. I might come over to the show by water on at least one day. It is an easy way to beat the ferry traffic!

Coupons! I like coupons!

Jacques had mentioned wanting to get together for dinner one evening. I know the show is hosting a dinner Saturday night. Would y'all like to get together Friday evening for dinner or a couple beers?

Yes to a bateau builder get together but not on Saturday night since there is an "official" show dinner or party.
Friday sounds good if everybody is there. I'll be there from Friday morning until Sunday evening.

There is a great little place over in Aransas Pass called Micky's bar and Grill where we could meet and eat. Great food, cold beer, on the water, great atmosphere. What do you think? You also avoid the tourist crowds and tourist prices of Port A. It is a short 10 minute drive from the ferry landing, or if you come by boat, it is 7 miles from the Port Aransas Harbor. It's a nice easy boat ride and there is plenty of spots to park your boat there.
