Check and see if Jaimes in Hamburg Cove while you're in the area. He's hauling out soon over at Cove Landing (off of 156 in Old Lyme).

I've got to say I don't pay much attention these days but the impression I have from the titles of recent threads is that you are collecting boats like I used to collect stamps. Before long you may need to move into a tent out in the yard so the kayaks have a place in the living room. :D

2 Pedestal Seats w/Boxes
Hydraulic Steering

I've got the Seaway 19' made by eastern boats in New Hampshire. Nice boats, based on the Ocean Pointer. Lots of fun in that boat. By the way, did you ever make anoffer on that boat at The Dock in Stratford? Just wondering what he wants/turned down.

Just last sunday I got up close and personal with one of these (out of the water), and I couldn't get "looks like a glass version of the ocean pointer hull" out of my head.
