    Default Mini EBS - Portland, Maine tonight! Lobsters and beer

    Tom (Twodot) and Lee (LW Baxter) are in town so we are having a lobster feed at our house tonight. If you are in the area come on by! Pm me for details. Hopefully I'll have my phone working again soon after the dunking it took on the sail back to Maine from Mystic.

    EBS is short for elbow bending symposium for you newbies here.

    Dang! Just a ferry ride away...
    Hope for the best, but plan for the worst.

    I will be there at least some of the time. I may have Owen with me, and if I do, we'll have to leave early so he can get some rest, before starting work at 11.30 tonight.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    Damn! Lobster at the Bauers with Twodot and Lee! Sounds fabulous.
    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.

    If it weren't for family obligations, I'd be there... only a 2 hr drive to Portland, from my place... a good reason to cruise up north while listening to an audiobook.

    Hope to see you in September, Steven.

    Thanks for the pics, Steven!
    I recognize Gareth, but beyond him nobody.
    Can someone put some names on those other folks?
    A nice looking bunch!

    Tom (Twodot) is next to Gareth. Hikingchrs is next to Lee down at the end. So with me taking the pic there were 5 forumites here. 6 if you count the few times my son Gavin has posted here.

    Pretty woman in green resembles the actress Chloe Sevigny to my eye. Who is the handsome bloke holding the corn?

    If the lovely Bauer family were to host one next year... I will bring a California contingent.

    Yes. And Rockport Marine builds an amazingly gorgeous boat. The amount of teak and bronze in Phalarope is staggering. Sadly there is no place to sail her in Montana so she is looking for a new caretaker.

    They are lovely. But I thought we were all coming to your house next summer for the big regatta?

    Wish I'd known. I was in Portland for the day but rarely look at the bilge.

    Thank you Steven and Mary! It was a wonderful time, and the early morning ghosting sail a lot of fun.

    Also rum.

    Naw, we ate very well, at the Bauer's and on Tom's boat. I actually grew out of my shoes on this trip.

    But honestly, that may have been the only line coiled on Phalarope all week...
