Hey everyone,

Sounds like we're going to get some Atlantic Canadian Whalers together this year during the Classic Boat Festival in Mahone Bay, NS. The Festival runs Thurs, July 31st - Sunday, Aug 3rd, 2008. Of course anyone is welcome to attend the festival and by all means, bring your Whaler if you can! I'll make sure there's a place to launch and moor them. I will have my Outrage 17 there, but the company I work for (Transom Boat Works) will have a display that I will have to be at most of the time during show hours. Regardless, there's lots to do (and see) at the show and in the town of Mahone Bay during the festival. Hopefully that Saturday or Sunday those Whaler owners/fans who attend will hop into the Whalers and we'll go for a nice tour for a few hours.

Anyway, here's a link to the Festival website http://www.mahonebayclassicboatfestival.org/ and post here if you're planning or at least hopeing to attend! You can also shoot me an email if you like :)

Hi Larry,

Understandable. I'm sure you'll have a great time if you can make it though. I can show you some other interesting places to explore while you're here as well. Lots of places to check out in that Montauk and most are well charted. Anyway, see where things are closer to July :)

Hahaha, yeah I guess so Larry. Nah, there's lots of time to go, plus I'm not sure how often people check this section of the forum... It would be nice if there was a better way to get the word out to local members here.

do you know if we need a passport to cross the border or will our military id be good enough

No quite sure now Larry. You should be just fine getting into Canada I would think, but I think we have to have a passport now to get into the US from Canada. It might be different with your Military ID...

Hey Larry,

Have any suggestions on a cost effective way to get a '67 Sakonnet and trailer from Michigan to ME or NS? We were thinkin about driving there, but between the cost of gas/hotels/food and time...

If you knew some long haul truckers one might back haul for a small fee,,or trade for a fishing trip and a place to stay
95Outrage17 posted 03-07-2008 11:10 PM ET (US)     Profile for 95Outrage17  Send Email to 95Outrage17     
Yeah, that would be cool. Unfortunately I don't know anyone like that well enough to ask such a thing... I think if we're gonna get it, I'm going to have to let the weather clear a bit, put a hitch on the Volvo and drive to Michigan... I really want the boat...

In this weather ,,that is no trip for a wife/girlfriend ,, ROAD TRIP take some guys for help

True. I think something along those lines will likely happen. A friend of mine is thinking about buying a used RAV4 V6, so he's looking in that area so we could just pick it and the boat up at the same time knida thing. We'll see, I'd like to have the Sakonnet at the Festival along with the Outrage :)

The 17 Cross Tackle? Certainly an interesting boat. I think I have the original brochure featuring those models (there were two if I remember correctly).

Thanks for the offer Larry! I'll keep it in mind for sure. Right now I'm drooling over that Newport that's down your way. Man that thing is nice!

Hey guys,

Spring is finally rolling in here and I'm getting excited for the summer! I'm hoping to get the Outrage ready and in the water in the next few weeks :) We're working on the plans for the festival. I'm going to make sure there's a place not far away to launch the boats and park the trailers. They'll be a mooring very near to the festival dock to tie the boats to and we'll have tenders there to use, plus there is a tender service as well. More details to come...

- Chris
