    Thanks for the info. I will try my best to get up there with the whaler for a nice long weekend. Besides, my tee shirt selection has been slowly making it's way into the rag pile and I can always use a few new ones!

    If it floats we will be glad to work on it.
    I am hoping I can make it to Boothbay Harbor Races this year. I am hoping maybe get a FPT engine there on display. No promises.

    Depends how far u want to travel.

    But; July 4th may be interesting. But the furthest away.

    Searsport and stonington are good turn outs too.

    I'm un fimliar with friendship. "As to this date ".

    So not to rain on anyone's parade, Friendship has been canceled this year, Harpswell was canceled and is now back on, and unfortunately since my dock facility is going to be torn out this year as well as a massive dredging project in the harbor, we have been forced to cancel the Searsport races for 2014.

    I'm bummed out :(

    Thanks for the update. Dredging is always a pain in the ass, but once it's done everyone is happy.

    The dredging isn't the big issue, the dock being torn out is the big issue.

    Dredging?

    Or mining mercury?

    Really not funny I guess.
