Wonder if Cal’s Tomahawk will have a couple of empty seats for rent at Kosh. Thinking I won’t be ready to bring a boat.

I got about 20 fuses with the Thunderbird I picked up with you that day and saved them... assorted sizes. I can bring them. I also could bring an extra paddle, trolling motor with jump start pack and a tow rope... that should cover everyone. Would love to see the Mustang in the water.. should I bring our life jackets or do you guys have enough on board for passengers?

Just come over. If you have a boat bring it. If you don't have one come anyway. It does not need to be a show queen. If it's a work in progress bring it. Even without a boat you will still be offered a ride with someone else. It's just a family community show. Talk boats, collector cars (With Bill). For the entrance fee you get ticket(s) for food, drinks and fun.
This was last year before more people showed up.

it's beautiful! Trailer has a nice patina. Just park it along side of the others. No need to launch if you don't want to.

I agree... you should bring it. Great outing. Owner is so welcoming. Great food. Great group of people I met last year! Bring some cleaning or polishing products... who knows, maybe if a few of us polish a spot or 2, your restoration will be on its way. Every boat helps us all learn because they bring up different questions and there are some very experienced members that give great advice. I just might bring a notepad so I don’t forget some tips. Love that year Evinrude! Hope to see you there.

Still wondering if I should bring some of my "stuff" to get rid of.

Is anyone bringing parts for a swap? I'm parting out my old 40hp Gale. Everything is there, just in boxes. :laugh:
Still trying to unload my shelves...dirt cheap if not free.
How about a working Evinrude electric lower unit with push button controls?
Don't want to haul a truckload of stuff if no one is interested. I will be taking most to Marinette later in June.

I still owe Cal a good lunch from last year so we will be there. I should bring a little spending change in case more good parts show up that I may need. Hope it is a great turn out!

Still have not had a decent weather opportunity to wring out the 70hp Evinrude on the back of the Tomahawk. Hopefully this week. If not raining and strong winds. What little opportunity I've had on choppy waters is that it idles good and takes off on a "punch it" but with that flat bottom a full all out high speed run couldn't happen. Then to add insult to injury while launching at our flooded ramp, backing off the trailer the skeg and prop dragged on the concrete ramp under water and bent my nice oversized prop. Way to big for the motor anyway. Idle no wake produced a pretty good vibration. Now I put on my right sized stainless :angry:
See you all on Saturday.

You can count me in, I will be taking the jetflite as long as it doesn't sell first. Do I need to buy tickets in advance, or do I just show up and get them there? Also does anyone know if it's flooded down there with all this rain?

Tickets??? They got a Ferris wheel :lol:
Last year it was just pay when you got there. High water could be a problem with the already fast current in the area. Only thing that would keep me away would be rain. Long forecast is still ifffyy.

I'm cleaning off the shelves again and need to get rid of this stuff.
Is anyone interested in it? If so I'll haul it too the show. If not I'll be bringing it all to the Marinette show on the 29th.
Lots of free stuff for anyone who could use it. Make an offer on others.
Two complete steering wheel systems.
Box of bling.
40hp Gale for parts, includes starter, carb, lu, rebuilt fuel pump, etc.
Trailer lights, some bow lights.
Complete walk through windshield.
Push button controls for OMC '69 yellow plug with working LU.
Some chipped "get me home" props.

And more.
