Possible rib voyage

Hi LTF,

I would really like to blast over to Block Island. Michele is off the first week of September, if that sounds like a possible plan let me know and we can throw some dates around. Do you still have a contact on the island so we would have a place to dock? Anyone else interested?

Bill

I'm new to ribs and boating in general - this is my second season with a Novurania 15' (MX460DL) with a Yamaha 90. Does anyone think I'm nuts for considering this on a small rib like mine?

In my limited experience as long as you are smart, the weather good and have all the right safty eqpt. I would think it wouldnt be too bad. You would be with other boats, something that I prefer. I belive it is about 13 miles off shore. We could even follow the ferry. I know a few friends that head over there on there jetskis. Feel free to think about it .

trip dates

I finally got in front of a calendar to look for Block Island dates. As early as Aug. 30th or 31st, Sept. 1st, 3rd, 5th or 6th are all good dates for us. I don't know what's going on with Gustav or if it will have any affect on our trip. The only possible glitch is my mom has been ill as of late, if she has a relapse I might not be able to go.

One question, which boat ramp would you recommend?

Bill
