Not as many boats in NYC as I thought there would be.

Other than our pack of knuckle heads there weren't any other boats. We only saw another 28 Skater.

The airshow and our informal OSO raft-up really was great.

Sorry to hear about your sunburns Johnny and Vin. Ouch! There is a picture below of a blue thing that will help next time. No sunburns for Jane and I, but we also used sunblock rated at 50. Sorry we forget to put a car in the cabin Vin, hope you made it ok to the BBQ though.

It was super to meet Mat, Joe, Blake and Joan for the first time, and you guys plus Angie again. Hope Joan did not suffer too much from sunburn as she looked pretty red also.

Had an interesting experience with the cruiser who anchored nearly ontop of our raft-up. Tell you about it later!

Now, if we can just get the Navy guys to join the airshow with a simulated attack on Jones Beach, that would really be cool, and no need to boat to Manhattan to see the ships!

Chris,
The sunbrella did give you a struggle to get set right, but I guess it was worth it. Lets hear it, spill the story of the "Captain"....

The story would lack dramatic effect without appropriate hand gestures.

Yep, the AnchorShade is one of the best things I have bought for the boat, particularly when under the hot sun in Florida. Most people merely pop the thing open, plant the rubber foot on the cockpit floor, attach the four side tie downs, and you are done in five minutes. I, on the other hand, enjoy figuring out how to fit it into a fishing contraption on the engine hatch of a gofast. When not doing that, I tie it off to one side of the cockpit or the other, as it can be a bit of a pain sliding past the .... oh never mind.
