Nice site. I look foward to seeing you and the rest of the historic fleet in NY. If all goes well, I'll be there with the Dry Martini team.

Hey Ron P., is Barry Cohen the guy that used to own a 30' Larry Smith called "Warcry" ? That boat ended up in Portland OR about 15-20 years ago, we damn near wrecked it one afternoon-didn't know how to run a boat w/arnesons. -Jeff
