    I hope my back is healed enough that I've finished Meg and can sail in.

    Will it still be in March? They are saying many won’t be vaccinated until summer. Maybe a postponement?
    I’ll go if I’ve had my vaccine by then.

    I think Phinny has taken some inspiration from the small craft show a couple of years ago.

    HESPER is hoping/planning on being at the waterfront at PYS (normally we are at Forepoints) and the plan is to do some type of combination of day sails for show participants, and perhaps some dockside tours.

    PYS is combining the MBBS with the MSSC, both happening at their yard in July. The Downeast TSCA will not be involved with the organizing this year.

    Late July. I like it. Hopefully we’ll all be vaccinated. Plan on some sort of after party here at our house.

    I really try to avoid passing through Wiscasset in summer. No real need to go to Portland then.

    Just come by water, Ben. That way you’d miss Wiscasset by miles. I’d bet it’s a much shorter distance, too.

    FWIW, Wiscasset has more and better tuned stoplights now and the long lines, waits, interruptions, etc., have been smoothed out remarkably.

    So the Maine Boatbuilder’s Show is this coming weekend! That snuck up on me. Come on over to our house after the Show Saturday. As long as you are vaccinated, of course. We will have some beers and grill some dinner! The party will be outside in the backyard, something we could never do for the MBBS before.

    I will be there, staying up at Bailey Island for a few days. Not sure which day we'll go to Portland, Friday if it is nice. I will be one of the 50 or so old guys with a white beard and a pretty young wife. Say hello if you spot me.

    I'll be there for all three days, with my newest build, a Doug Hylan designed, 13'00" Peapod. I'll be on land with several other new builds in the "I built it myself" category. Stop by and say hello!

    OS, I didn’t see you there yesterday, and there isn’t really an I built it myself section. Are you thinking of the WoodenBoat Show in Mystic next month?

    A couple of pics from Yesterday:


    We loved this 1947 lobster boat:

    This 3-D printed boat was very cool:

    Is it all outside this year? Nice to see it on the water regardless.

    There are inside exhibitors. Not as many as the March shows. I feel like they didn’t really do enough marketing. Still fun though. Caught up with folks we hadn’t seen since pre Covid-19 days. They’ve got some cool rebuild projects going on.

    The biggest news is that Prowess is for sale. She’s the amazing 47’ Eldridge-McGinnis sailboat that has been in the same family for decades.

    I do like the summer show idea.

    I was there early Friday. I agree, it doesn't seem like it was well publicized. Still nice to get back out, see some folks and view boats. Lion's Whelp was impressive.

    Steve,
    You're absolutely correct, I posted on the wrong thread. Seventy three years old and rust has started forming on my brain.
