Just got back tonight from Topsail-great weather! I will check my calander as we have plans to drive up to Michigan June 30th and stay on Walloon Lake for 2 weeks. Saturday the 19th of June may be a possability since we will only be able to drive down to Topsail for the weekend.

Bob, I was in Topsail this weekend (without Whaler) and saw you and your boat Sunday night around dusk heading for the inlet. Great looking boat. I was in the in-laws boat (the "Cheap Thrill") just south of the last canal.

Hey Goosedog,

Nice weather last weekend at Topsail. Do you stay at the south end of the island? Our place is behind the Hardware store in the town area of Topsail Beach. Lately, it seems we have only been getting down there about once a month. I hope maybe we could have a whalerphile get together maybe Saturday June 19th by Serenety Point on the back side of the Island. We need to put the word back out as June approaches. In the meantime I will keep an eye out for "Cheap Thrill" maybe we will catch up sometime soon.

Whalertim, keep us posted as to the get together options.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, my in-laws have a small yellow cottage at the head (oceanside) of the southernmost canal on the south end. I'm probably out the 19th, but will be there if I can.

It will be a good idea if someone who really knows the area can head this trip up. I am down about once a month. Bob, are you willing to say when and where? I will make the time and help any way I can.

A couple meeting places around Topsail Island come to mind so tell me what you guys think.

1) Meet at the beach just inside north or New Topsail inlet

2) Meet at the new restraunt just before the bridge in surf city -lots of dock space usually.

3) Meet at one place and parade our boats to a second location (ie meet at the restraunt have lunch and run the the beach or vice versa)

We have a couple months to kick some ideas around hopefully folks will be able to attend.

I like the #3 option. Meet at Surf City, dock the boats and eat, then head south to Topsail. Maybe stop again at the south end, either at Lee's Island or at the beach on the left just pass the houses and apts.
Just a thought.

Option #3 sounds great. The new restaurant is Sears Landing, which is owned and run by Hap -- who used to own and run The Beach Shop on the south end. The final destination on the south end sounds great. Depending on tides, the sand bars ICW side of the sound may open up. The beach on the oceanside of the sound south of the canals can get mighty crowded on nice weekends. Lee Island is always fun.

RE: 7/24/2004

I will have just been in Michigan for the previous two weeks (July 2-17) so it is unlikely we will be able to travel to Topsail that following weekend. Getting back in town there are always a dozen fires to be put out at work. I have only taken one two week vacation from my job since the 1980s so I'm thinking that I will need at least one weekend to get things situated upon our return. I sincerely hope you can get as many folks together as possable for a Topsail Rendezvous but think July 31st or later would better suit our situation.

Hey Everbody, I was just looking over the forums, (haven't been on here in quite a while)and I saw the posts about Topsail. I had no idea there were that many of you around here. I'm in Wilmington, spend lots of time around the Wrightsville, Masonboro, Lee island area.I'd love to meet up with any/all of you. One of my best friends has a whaler as well and I'm sure he would be up for it too. We both finally got out on the water for the first time this year this past weekend. Felt good, warm and sunny! Looking forward to hearing from you - maybe I"ll run into some of you before then around WB somewhere....

I just got back from a trip to DC and will be around WB & MAsonboro on Sunday. (Taking 'Mother' out for a trip or two.
Will keep my eyes open, as always, for other local Whalers.
Happy Whalin'

I'm up for the 24th of July w/end.
Looking like I'll be in town (Wilmington) that month, so any July w/end would be OK
Who else will be around?

Hey,

We were just down to Topsail Beach this past weekend Beautiful!! water=78 degrees air=78 degrees just the same as La Jolla, California 2 weeks ago. Nice and breezy too so the bugs were minimal. Guys I am going to be back down June 12th if that works for anyone else lets get together on Saturday.

Bob (aka BOXERS)

whalertim, We will try to be back one more time before July, 2004.

Long weekend coming up, I'll probably be behind Masonboro somewhere tied up, or surfing over there. Maybe up by Lee Island / Topsail but not sure. Should be in either a 17' Montauk w/ Carolina Whaler Stickers ( previous owner - look like the originals but say Carolina instead of Boston)or a older 13'with black decals & a ( temporary) cooler seat. I'll look out for you all ........

I'll be at Lee Island this weekend and around the Surf City area. Yell if you see me.
17' Supersport LTD.
On the side you will see."Will Power"

Bad News is we will remain in Western NC for the long weekend (as usual) due to our daughters dance recital.

Good News is she won't be in the program next year so we can travel to the beach next Memorial Day!

Have fun Guys

I am told that there is a music festival scheduled for July 24 at the new park/boat ramp just over the bridge in Surf City. This may make boat traffic and crowds at Sears Landing unbearable. Should we consider lunch elsewhere?

Don't know if you would be interested in traveling up this far, but we have quite a few places to eat on the water in Wrightsville. Depending on how many show I think that Bluewater or Dockside may have the most room to tie up, but there is a couple more too. We could originally meet up towards Topsail in the morning and then go to lunch from there. Not sure of a convenient meeting place that everyone could find though, I'm south or Wrightsville and haven't traveled very far North of there.

Will be out somewhere between Fig 8 and Masonboro this w/end.
Probably go more Fig 8 way due to crazy 'tourists' and all those folks that don't get out any other time.
Always have my eyes open for other Whalers. Nothing special about mine, excep blue bimini with an old Johnson o/b and and even older old f**t at the helm. Ha ha!
See you on the water..

I'm still in as far as I know. Plus my friend who has one also. Just let me know where and when you want to meet.

There is a big party on the North End of Carolina Beach this weekend( Sat) and we will both be out there. Probably tied together and/or with a 23 wellcraft w/green t-top.

We both have montauks w/evinrude 90's. He has black lettering and I have red ( Carolina whaler stickers from PO)

if any of you are out that way stop by and say hello.

May be surfing at masonboro in the am..
