I was looking to see if there are any New england ribbers around that would like to try to get together for another ride. Open to suggestions, Newport RI, Block Island RI, these are not far from me but would like to hear from anyone interested,. how bout it, had a blast when we went to the tall ships. just wanted to go on a nice trip before the boat gets put away again for another long winter....

Hi Scott,

Hope all is well and that in spite of the rotten boating weather that you have gotten the boat out. The best bet for us is the first week of September (6th through 13th), Michele is on vacation, and I'm somewhat flexible. We would love to do a Block Island Blast.
Let me know what you think.

Bill

great to hear from you, I hope you have been well. Have you been outon the boat a lot this year. I just got back from 3 weeks camping on the water, boat is used mosty for cruising and kneeboarding or tubeing. Would love to try a trip again with you. That week should be fine for meAre you thinking a weekend or weekday. Im pretty flexible alo, talk to you soon, thanks

We haven't gotten out as much as last year because of the crummy weather and high water on the river from all of the rain, but we are going out today on the sound. Should be a great day for it. We finally named the boat, "Blue Moon".

A weekend or monday, wednesday or friday, but with the weather we've had this summer, I guess that will be the final decision maker. Do you still have a friend out there with a place for us to tie up? Be great to be able to go ashore and look around a bit.

Bill

I just got back from the UK and Ireland. Did see some sweet RIBs whilst over there. I may be able to meet up for an outing, but probably have to play it by ear.

Looking forward to the blast to Block Island, hopefully the weather will settle down. I've been thinking about where to put in and want to see what you think of either the New London ramp or the one in Stonington. Both are decent State of CT ramps, both have decent sized parking lots. The New London ramp would be a nice ride, out past Mystic, Watch Hill, Misquamicut, them on to B/I. The distance would be about 40 miles each way. Stonington would be a bit shorter by maybe 5-7 miles.

Either would be a great ride. Any thoughts?
