Doug's PY12 looked very nice, well equipped ready to go.
Dave's D15 attracted lots of attention and was a contender for first place in power boats. The finish was superb.
Cannonball's FS18 was very well finished too, looked nice with his jet outboard.

Those guys already have the 3rd annual Festival scheduled for 2016. My FL14 is only a couple weeks from splashing. Definately thinking of attending this year. Make for a nice weekend out with the misses.

I'm planning on coming again too. I went to the first two and had a great time, meeting many builders and seeing all kinds of builds. Wouldn't want to miss it.

Jeff and I will be there. Richard Woods too. I have been invited to give a couple of presentations about our designs and building techniques. Richard Woods will also make a presentation or two.

October 8 to 10 in Port Aransas, TX.

BTW, Dougster should have won first place but there were 2 close friends of the winner in the jury . . . I was in the jury and have an idea of what happened. :)

Once again, I'm going to try to make it this year barring work commitments.
I'll bring my FS18 (and 3 kids) if I can make it.
