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.

Tourist help please

Maine Lobster Boat Races 2014 Schedule
July 4th Moosabec Reach - Points Race
July 12th Searsport - Points Race
July 13th Stonington - Points Race
July 19th Friendship - Points Race (might be the 20th, haven't received confirmation

We (wife and daughter actually) are picking dates to take my daughter to look at colleges this summer in Mass.
I would like to add some time for the lobster boat races in July. Which is the best one? Or just pick one? I have never really been, just stopped by one for a few minutes, took a few pictures and got on with business.
I would like to spend more time, indulge in a few adult beverages and shoot the bull.
By then I will have my boat in the water down here and know the numbers.
Any help would be appreciated

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.
