The oops of the weekend had to be when one of the guys on Extreme Exhibit asked a bystander on the dock to throw him one of the lines. The line had one of those little push pin connectors attached to the end of it and....he cam up short. The pin banged off the starboard engine cover and put a nice gouge in that beautiful paint.

I know that I had to be taking pictures when you were there taking videos of Tomcat and Extreme Exhibit. I wonder how many OSO'rs I have in some of the pics I took and never met

next time we need to have a more organized place to meet. We were all there at the same time just didn't know each other!
If your boat has a sail do you ride a horse to the ramp?

Tom, thanks for the compliment - just trying to tell it like we saw it (after I picked my jaw off the ground from all the beautiful hardware!).

What a lousy drive home, eh? From Lansing on, nothing but ugly... that's Michigan for ya! 11 months of winter and 30 days of rain...

I second Tom's comment. Nice pics and commentary. We do need some means of identification though.
