It would be awsome to get a dozen or so ribs out there. I can also give Brian or Adam at Ribcaft a call if the date is firm. See if they have interest in getting involved.

Do you need a place to stay overnight in advance or after? There are loads of B&B's, I can get you a link to a listing. What else would you like to know?

I know the guys from Ribcraft a bit, but please do give them a call or email and get them behind this idea. They could really help make this a big event! I'll swing by there next week and talk to them.

Parking at the beach ramp isn't a problem.

Nahant has that psuedo island thing going on, so they're a little more insular. True 'headers seem to put up with visitors, as long as you spend some money, then leave! A much more pragmatic Yankee approach!

I've only lived here 9 years, so I'm still a bit suspect. But as long as you look somewhat salty, you'll do fine.

Just got an email from RIBCRAFT USA. They want to help, which is great! Should result in a few more boats showing up.

One consideration is the date. Anyone have any opinions on June 23 as opposed to June 9? Would more folks come on one date vs. the other? Have kids in school activities that would keep you from coming on either date? Don't care?

Another possible destination was Boston, either all the way in to a marina or out and about the Harbor Islands. I lean towards the Anniaquam River option. How about the rest of you?

Let us know, then we'll start doing some more legwork arrange dock space, find a lunch spot, and promote the event.

9th or later is fine with me, just need to know which one to plan around. any destination is going to be fun. Also if we need to make arrangements about parking. Only ? about the river option (having never been there) would a group of crazy ribs terrorize the kayakers. nothing sweeter than the scorn of a kayaker polluting there environment. Just kidding, my wife and i kayak our local rivers and i used to get bullsht
when someone ventured to close in a speeding vessel (canoe, jet ski,motor boat, loon)

Either date can work for me. By a coincidence, Adam from Ribcraft and I exchanged e-mail today as well on another matter, so of course, I pitched the trip, so it seems he got a double shot of it. Adam said that Matthew will be the contact point.

Unfortunately I am unable to go on this later date, The 9th is the only day I could make it. I am going to maine for a week with the boat later. If this latter date works better for everyone else by all means keep it. Im sure we can get another meet soon if everything goes well. I will keep up on whats going on and we can see what happens

I don't think the 23rd will work for me either. 9th does, and/or later in the summer.

Any of the destinations work for me. Doing the Annisquam or somewhere else I've never been has obvious appeal. But it would be pretty darn cool to bring the fleet right downtown too.
