Added you to the list, Chris!  There's several of us coming from the Annapolis area, so will probably be a bit of a Great White Fleet thing going on.

Can't wait to meet everybody there - I'll be headed across the bay on the Constant Dilemma (47')  from the South River.

Spent some time looking for Chris Craft Commanders away for the winter.

I do not know the owner, but the yard will carry the message of the event to him.

Reservations secured, Ed was very pleasant and easy to work with. See you there.

If anyone knows the owner of the 55' Commander that sits in a covered shed in the Sassafras River (Georgetown Yacht Basin), you might reach out to them and let them know about the Rendezvous.  She is a beauty.

Glad to hear it, Anthony! I'll get you added to the participant list when I update it next.
