    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.

    Got my first shot last Thursday, hopefully wife will be eligible soon (child bride). I so look forward to that show and hope to make it this year.

    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.
