Count me in! I picked up a new to me Ribcraft 5.85 a few weeks ago. I'm on the south shore (MA) and will certainly take a trip.

Damn SoCal guys... We only hit 102 here.

Heard the tall ships were back in San Diego a couple of weeks ago. Any new shots?

It took a bit of searching, but I found it. I thought mine ended up sold to a guy from the Springfield MA area, but it could have been moved or resold. It looks similar except the upholstery is a different color. His description is a bit over the top, but the boat served me well and was built like mack truck.

Jky,
yes had a fun time chasing my favorite targets.
Full galleries here,

But particularly fond of "Amazing Grace" who are always very welcoming to see me and don't mind me getting close in.
Also Pilgrim from just up the road at Dana Point is a class act
cheers Dal

Bill,
think you need to be kind to your Ribcraft and send it to "winter" down here in San Diego
Just hope it has pressure relief valves as we dont want it exploding when the temps soar
Only 85' today so was thinking of going out ,but there are clouds out there
cheers Dal

Nice try Dal, though it's a good thing that all USA Ribcraft boats have pressure relief valves. I was planning on going out today, temps in the low 70's, but we got hit by heavy rains the last couple of days so the rivers were quite high and full of junk. Soon Blue Moon will go into hibernation only to be up and ready for the challenge next spring.
I do envy you guys with a year round boating season.


Bill
