We will be there with our Skoota 28 power cat. We are trucking it down to Texas after the Port Townsend WBF. Then after the PA show we will be moving on board and heading east round the Gulf to Florida and the Bahamas

Sounds like fun and I'll still have some vacation to burn, so I'll plan on attending.

Just submitted time off for 10/15-10/21. My kids are already going nuts I'm going to FL meet without them. They love Port A. They'll go double nuts when they find out I'm going. :)

Sure would like to make this trip, but one, don't believe I'll be finished with my build, and two, like ATB, a rare time when I'll be traveling for business that weekend. I'll be ready for next year!

We are planning to come by and hopefully get to meet Jacques and Richard during the show. The OD18 is still not ready but it's getting closer and I'm hoping to have it done by early next year. I'm 15 minutes from Port A. and didn't even know about the show last year but won't miss it this year.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen at once.

There are lots of lodging options but I had good luck at the Howard Johnson last time.

I will be there and staying at the Bay Tree Condos. Not sure If I will bring my existing wood boat. I'm afraid to show of my first attempts at repair and restoration of a wooden boat. The boat spent about 7 years as a full time guide boat and I restored it more to work boat condition than anything else.

I have since learned just how many mistakes I made and how much I did not know. Compared to some of the work I have seen on this site, it is pretty rough looking.

I'm looking forward to it. It's great fun seeing folks and all the boats. My SK14 isn't ready but I am. Looking forward to meeting other Bateau folks.
