    Just wanted to drop a line and say thanks for the incredibly warm welcome yesterday by all the forum folk. Alix and I had a day and could not be happier.

    Yall are some of the best humans I have had the pleasure of spending time with. Keep it up!

    Looking forward to crossing paths again.

    We are having a open house/pig roast party July 15th if anyone feels like making the journey inland to western mass. All are welcome!

    Missed the meetup yesterday, mooning around the white tents and talking to Clint Chase about the Calendar I. Yawl. But I'm around Sunday morning through noon, in a blue and white checked shirt, red hat.

    By the way, our own Ben Fuller led an tour yesterday of the amazing treasures of the small boat collection in the oldvelvet mill, just some incredible things, boats I have read about for many years. There's an Akester canoe yawl up too high to see I'd love to know more about...another time.

    Enjoy, all, Dan

    I could spend days in the Rossi Mill looking at designs and construction details.

    Offer a beer. I know which I prefer!

    Thank you for your hospitality. Was great to meet you - though I was disappointed you didn't insist on Mr. Baxter's foredeck display. But then pics definitely woulda been posted here & now that I think about it, I enjoyed the beer more...

    I was wondering where all the pictures were. Haven't been down to the Bilge in years, too much yapping and complaining down there.

    That's too bad. Can't stand the bilge.
