Newport Hali opener

I'll be there; any one else going? L:ooking for other Armia owners to have a beer with at the Red Hook. It should be interesting with the morning minus tide.

At this point we have reservations and plan on being there... but it all depends on the weather!

Eric,

Yes, I have the boat.  Just slowly working out the kinks and getting it fitted to suit my needs.  Hopefully I will get some photos up.

I pulled the plug for this weekend as well.  Combination of crappy south wind forecast and half a dozen rando distractions that kept me from getting the boat/camper ready.

Looking ahead to next week!

Reports are that Charter boats cancelled on all three days, fish checkers only recorded 4 halibut.   Just the biggest of boat made it out those that did claimed the ocean looked like a flock of sheep. I pulled the plug rescheduling for this weekend. I will drive down Wednesday afternoon staying at the marina RV park. I'll gladly trade anybody's hot spot for a beer.   :whistle:
