Susan and I are in. Having hosted this event in the past I can tell you that a lot of people will chime in at the last day or just show up. You will get more then 5 or 6 people.

Tom,

Okay, the sky lounge is back on. We have room for another 20 people, so latecomers are welcome. Maybe the problem is that the subject line for this post doesn't reference that it is the Boat Show CBGT??

Marco,


"Fly-Fishing Puget Sound with a Dry Fly" finally did it for me. I will be attending SBS and come to your CBGT if there is still room for 1

Dwight,

Plenty of room. I've also got that seminar highlighted. I fish from our beach for cutthroat, but the most fun I've had fly fishing is for black rock fish off the West side of Vancouver Island. A strike almost every cast. Plus, I lose some of the hundreds of flies that I tied years ago.

Brother and a friend joined wife and I for our visit to the boat show. It was a lot of fun. Here are my observations:

C-Dory booth people were not impolite, but not at all interested in owners coming and visiting.

Ranger Tug people as always very welcoming. I was fascinated that they are switching to outboards for all boats under 30 feet (actually about 35 feet). Outboards are coming back across the boating industry, and in spades.

Some of the most interesting booth hosts are, as before, in the East Hall. Boat Surveyors had a booth, and I had an informative conversation there. He was familiar with C-Dorys and agreed that the only really important surveyor service they need is checking out the integrity of the balsam hull for moisture. He does that on a non-written basis for less than a couple hundred dollars.

There is a folding boat, 8 foot and less than 40 pounds, folds to 4 inches thick which looks like a real winner. A sail boat fellow, one of our party has the 10 foot model and really likes it. The 8 foot could fairly easily fit aboard, along side, the 22 foot C-Dory. It will also plane with well under 5 horsepower engines.

Rob, is that the Port-a-Bote you are looking at. Yup, I think they are cool but they have been discussed here often. It would be really tough to set them up in a C-Dory cockpit. Yours might be different, at 40 pounds that seems lighter than a Port-a-Bote. Mine is closer to 75#.
