    Some people who must dislike you all very much have conspired to get me on an airplane and to the show.

    I don’t understand what I did to deserve friends like I have, but whatever.

    I can’t imagine it will be difficult to pick me out of the crowd? Or hear me. I am super loud IRL.

    I have lurked, and then been a member here (at least since the days of Ross and Barret Faneuf and Coel Mor ), alas, I have not been to a WBS yet - maybe in the near future . . .

    Sadly I won’t be able to get there until early Saturday afternoon and will be there through Sunday. I would love to offer my boat as an R&R spot , but I will most likely be stuck out on an anchor (the rate to tie up is not in my budget).
    In past years the Oyster house (building out over the water next to Emma C. Berry) has been a meeting spot.

    Looking forward to seeing forumites!

    I ended up taking in the show very quickly on Friday morning after a Thursday trip to the Herreshoff Museum for some research and attend a talk about RELIANCE. A bit of truck trouble swiftly resolved (thank goodness) and then I drove home early to beat the hellacious "New England to Maine" summer traffic.

    The new boat exhibit in the big swoopy welcome center building and the Rosenfeld photos in the chapel was great. Tom Townsend's boats were the queens on the floats. He's a master. This one of his restorations now belongs to a neighbor: https://www.soundingsonline.com/features/cool-change

    Clint, this sail set up made me think of you! It was great to meet you and everyone IRL.

    It was great fun to meet so many folks and see so many lovely boats.

    I definitely intend to do a few drawings from some of the photos taken.

    Well look at that a Twins rig! Rob is referring to my planned rig for the Drake 17 which will be a pair of twin jib-shaped sails set off a pole/mast to give 40 SF of downwind sailing when twinned out and 20 SF when folded atop one another.

    It was absolutely awesome talking to you, Clint. Thanks for taking the time. Those scarf joints are neat and that dory is sweet.

    There were some neat boats in that exhibit. Like this Cuban fishing boat, originally powered by a Briggs and Stratton, later by a Russian made one cylinder.

    Another 10 Minute Doodle, this from a snapshot I took. It’s a fun exercise to try and capture things quickly in ink on a small page.

    More Doodle? I took some snapshots with the intent to draw from them. The show and Museum were wonderful.
