What did you find out about launching, dickage and trailer parking?
Guess now I am staying at the ramada since i waited a day to call HJ
I will be needing to leave my trailer somewhere and hopefully the boat in the water. Wether its provided by the Apba or by my own funds. Would prefer not having to load and unload each day

Should be in town around 2pm on Thursday.

McKinley Marina 414-273-5224 may have slips available. Launch is at McKinley and you can leave your trailer there.

I'm pretty sure that there will be room. Last year they took over the entire park, and there was lots of space left over. All you need to do is to get a piece of paper to set on your dash and you're golden. Maybe OT can help you with that. Now, I'm not sure, but it may have been suggested that a launch was included as we were assisting. I may have misread that though. See post #16

Thanks for the #
I called nad they only have 22 slips reserved for the race
Not sure if this is for thier crew boats, partol boats, or the racers

They have NO MORE available to reserve.

I can only hope APBA is providing slips for patrols boats. Would be a pain load and unload each day.
But maybe that is the way it is

Mn - I am having someone get back to me from APBA on whether slips are included and also launching information. I will let you know.

As posted on APBA site "No alcohol is permitted aboard Patrol boats and children are not permitted aboard." Okay we will have to wait until the evening then.

Mn, have you looked at Port Washington? It's a really nice community and marina. It may even be cheaper. About 30-40 minutes to the north.

It'll be a long day! You'll have to do your drinking in the morning and then store it for the afternoon.

Regarding Vicki-I have a very nice bucket that she can use. If she's not comfortable with the bucket, I'd be happy to give her a line to hold onto when she's on the swim step.

She's a trooper Tim, it won't be an issue. Me on the other hand, I might take you up on that bucket!!

Well, it's a good size bucket and my neighbor put a high water mark on that you'd have a tough time beating!
