It would be great if some of us from down
south could plan a trip up the intracoastal
to meet some northern Whalers halfway!
Not that I could take any time off in the
forseeable future.
I believe Clark and the SCN. made a trip
north up the ICW.I can not remember how far.
Just a thought.

I think that would be a great idea! I would be very interested in meeting somewhere on ICW to meet some of the great people that are Whaler lovers. Each morning when I come into work, the first thing I do is open this site and read the forums of what people have to say about different issues on classic whalers. The chance of getting to meet some of them in person I think would be great!
Just my 2 cents

I was thinking more along the lines of some place and some time like this:

We meet at a large inland lake in the central U.S., in the south, something like Lake of the Ozarks.

And we meet in the fall, when the weather up north is well past prime boating season.

Most Whalers are trailerable, so getting to the Rendezvous should not be too hard, even if you're coming 500 miles.

By making it an inland lake, people with smaller boats can participate, too.

And Lake of the Ozarks (or something similar) would have plenty of water to explore, and have plenty of shore accomodations (since we are not all going to be sleeping aboard).

I'd give serious consideration to driving down south in the fall for a meet at a nice lake in late October.

Where is Lake of the Ozarks?
I'd be up for a get together if not too far.
I'm in Delaware.

Lake of the Ozarks is in Missouri, perhaps not the closest body of water to Delaware :-)

Maybe Kentucky Lake? It is about 100 miles long in western Tennessee and Kentucky.

And we could even visit the Sea-Ray plant, too! [OK, I am kidding.]

From a place called Delaware hmm just a touch over 1000 miles

Now Bev Dr to K L = approx. 560 miles and

From Delaware oh about 800 miles however from Bev Dr to Delaware just a short 600 miles ---

Now James --- yor paint statement gave me a tad of food for fought --- so 'astened ter seek out me Mae West salt water paint removal advisers dahn at the bloomin' local rub-a-dub --- after a few fought enhancin' brews it were decided beyond the shadow of a doubt that no the bloomin' paint wouldn't be removed this is due ter the fact that the bloody motors came from Japan wich we all know is many miles across a large salted body of water --- logic deemed us ter determine that if they were able ter cross such a large expanse and arrive 'ere in the states no worse the bleedin' wear than certainly a few days of exposure in the chuffin' brine would 'ave no effect --- 'iccup Fomas
