I would think the southerners are probably doing tri/bi stateBump...what's everyone doing for Labor Day...often the last big weekend of the season?
We are doing Red Fox in Charlevoix. Last year was a blast...hoping for more of the same this year.
Getting into the pool the first week of May sure introduces you to the reality of hypothermia.Safety At Sea at Muskegon Yacht Club, May 7-8, 2022
Hello everyone, we've tentatively scheduled a two-day Safety at Sea seminar at Muskegon Yacht Club the first weekend in May 2022.
US Sailing tells me that in-person Day 1 attendance is generally waning due to the availability of online courses, but we're going to at least start with the idea that we'll be doing day one in person. We will probably be at Muskegon Community College as we were in 2017.
The hands-on Day 2 programming is still in demand. That will definitely be at MYC.
Save the date!
If you are in Milwaukee, I would inquire with Manitowoc Marina. No real connection, but am an acquaintance of the owner. He and I began working there in the 80's; he stayed in the industry, I decided to keep sailing as a hobby rather than a career. Manitowoc now also owns Nest Egg in Marinette, WI and a friend had them install a new suite of Raymarine electronics this past season. He was happy with their work and timeliness. Obviously different staff, but would think work "culture" to be similar.Any recs for boatyard to have work done for significant refit? Or yards to avoid. I'm in Milwaukee but haven't had great experience here, also considering Crowleys. Thanks in advance.

What's involved in the "significant refit"? That might have some input on the choice...Any recs for boatyard to have work done for significant refit? Or yards to avoid. I'm in Milwaukee but haven't had great experience here, also considering Crowleys. Thanks in advance.
PM'd you.Rebedding the keel, replacing standing rigging, and addressing wet core in several places
Yep. I went to renew my cert yesterday and saw the change. The website is working as is the Pay Pal linkage. I received a message that I am in the queue and once the handicappers review my info they will issue a new cert.Hey all, in case you have not heard. LMPHRF and DYRA have merged and the new organization will be known as Midwest PHRF or MWPHRF. the new web site is www.mwphrf.org is is up and active. You can apply for your new PHRF certificate now HERE. Actual Certificate May not be available for a few weeks as they are still addressing how to deal with boats that are rated differently on the two sides of the Michigan but that won't take long to sort out.
Basically DYRA's handicappers wanted to step down and LMPHRF has much better technology so the merger is a win/win. So much so that from a chance encounter of the leadership in the Bayview bar to finalized merger took less than three months. Nice job to both boards!
