Yes, We are planning on going. If we don't freeze first. It is dependent on the weather as to when we will arrive to raft up. What channel do you normally monitor? That way we could hook up.

I plan on heading up Friday night - not this friday but next - and staying in the anchorage (North side of the channel where all the boats tie up, across from the sea wall). We will prob. tow a dingy to get to and from town, you would be welcome to use it, but most of the time is spent hanging out on the boat. I try to get there early because it can get pretty crazy and be a PITA if you try to find a spot to raft up later on Saturday evening. Also, fair warning, the party gets pretty ramped up as the evening goes on. Saturday especially. Friday is pretty tame.

I usually keep it on 16, but I can switch over to 9. Just hail Berth Control. The name isn't on the boat, but I'll answer it. Otherwise you can just look for my boat, I'll be moored there where everyone stays, prob. closer to the East end (where the fireworks are let off, farther up the channel) I will have a pirate flag flying from my vhf antenna, and it's a black and white boat. If you see us and want to tie up, just pull on up. You will prob. be a few boats down the line, but I always seem to get in a pretty friendly line, so no prob.
