Glad to see everything falling into place! In August we will probably be somewhere around the Great Lakes headed down to Chicago! We had a fabulous stay in New York Harbor the night before last, see the link to the pics in the blog on the Daydream's Great Loop thread.

MikeR, thanks for your ideas, and Mary, good questions. The eclipse is a rare reason to stay through Sunday and the 21st! I suspect like last year, though, we'll likely break camp mostly by noon Sunday. I think I was the last one to leave on Monday at 2 p.m. last year, as nasty weekend winds kept many dock-bound through Sunday. But that Monday resembled a Sunday.

Regardless, we're set for Friday and Saturday nights, and you'll want to contact the harbormaster regarding Sunday and Monday nights. I'm sure there will be space for Freedom. And absolutely, spend some time in Fairhaven. It's a fun place to shop and look, and I routinely walk back to the marina after the tour. Brats go every which way Saturday, then assemble late Saturday afternoon for the potluck.

Mark at NMI is looking forward to giving us a factory tour at 10 a.m. Saturday. Should be another fun weekend in Bellingham. Smile

Just a quick note to let folks know Bellingham is still happening in a little over a month. This site recently was voted Most Underrated C-Brat rendezvous scene in a popular poll, so come and be seen.

Seven boats are signed up so far, and if we can double that number I think that would be twice as good. Two years ago the wind barely blew for three straight days. Last year it blew so hard we could barely stand up straight. Since the wind blows only in alternate years, you can imagine the calm that awaits us.

Gene and I are looking forward to seeing old friends and making new friends at the Bellingham gathering. It has been a long time since we have been able to attend. Hope to cruise the San Juans and maybe a bit of BC after the get together. Last year we took Reef Madness from Blaine to Elfin Cove Alaska for the summer. It was a grand trip. This year we are flying to Elfin Cove. Much faster and cheaper. See you there! Come on folks....the more the merrier!

Margaret, Gene & Docker

Thanks for your enthusiasm on this gig, Margaret! I haven't seen you and Gene for at least three or four years, I think. I'll never forget the fun we had laughing with Fred and others in your cockpit at the Nanaimo gathering in 2009. I remember last year you were committed to the long trip north. I hope you won't mind me dropping by your boat with my chart in hand, ready to ask you a few dozen questions about your adventure.

I imagine at least a few of us will want to cruise around and about once we break up Sunday.

Yes Brock that was a good time. If I remember correctly, there may have been some Irish Cream involved. We would love to share our adventures to Alaska with you and anyone else who cares to listen. You have the boat, now just make the plan.

Any news on the C-Dory factory tour yet? Also, does anyone know if the factory still has, or ever did have a smaller scale (16 or smaller C-Dory replica), on the roof. I thought there was one there at some point. Went by on the freeway last weekend, but did not see the signature profile.

My wife and I will likely come up and spend a night in a hotel as my boat will probably still be in production or at the dealer being outfitted. We look forward to meeting you all. I'll be the big dutch guy 6'4" 260lbs with the cute gal at my side.

Harvey, the factory by the freeway in Ferndale burned down a few years ago, along with the 16 on the roof. They are now in Fairhaven, you can't see the current factory from the freeway. The new factory is great, and personally I think it's super cool being located at the site of former legendary builders in Bellingham such as Uniflite, Chris Craft, and Tolly Craft.

Hey, MikeR, I didn't know they also built Chris Craft and Tolly's in that same building. Along with Uniflite and the current boats produced by NMI, that's a prolific lineup.

I've been away cruising and now have 75 engine hours. What a difference a bigger boat makes. Sometimes we don't know what we don't know. I don't know if that made any sense, but I do know I could sure as hell spend the entire summer on the water exploring the Salish Sea and beyond. The boating tick bit me and I'm just fine with that.

Regarding our Bellingham rendezvous, I want to ask what attendees would like to do for dinner Saturday night. Does a traditional potluck appeal to us or would all ya'all prefer to walk up together to Anthony's?

Harald and Heather, I'm delighted you're driving up from Portland to join us. Course, you have another pretty good reason to Venture northward. We'll all get a chance to become acquainted with your evolving black treasure midway through its build. That's pretty darn cool.

Harvey, I wish you could join us because any gig is better when you're there.

Thanks Brock! I'll be up there tomorrow as well through Friday as i have a factory visit Friday morning at 9 unfortunetly my wife can't come tomorrow due to work obligations. So I will be solo. I will check out the marina since I have the time and see if I can spot any brats Smile. My wife and I look forward to meeting the gang for the get together in a couple weeks.

Thank you for organizing it. If you need any help let me know. As to dinner either is fine with me but since we are traveling our contribution to the pot luck will be limited. Let me know what non perishables we can bring if we go that route.

H&H

I'll be posting pics of the factory tour Saturday.

We are in Harbor Springs, MI, at Little Traverse Bay on Lake Michigan, and odds are none to negative infinity that we will be in Bellingham for this CBGT, but we will be there in our hearts! A DOUBLE thanks to Brock (and Mike R?) for seeing that "Bellingham is Back" does not die! We will try to phone in some time during the potluck. We now have 2,900 miles of our Great Loop done, with about 2,200 or so more to go to cross our wake in LaBelle, FL! I post a link to our blog every day in the Daydream's Loop thread under Great Adventures!
