More Boat Legends From Hal, Roger Livingston & Tomorrow’s NEIYA Meeting

 

Just a few more reasons to stop by have been added Bill Buchholz will be bringing Hal Chamberlain’s DN down, Roger Livingston’s boats are looking for a good home and though it’s not an iceboat, there will be a foiling Catamaran for sale. If you’re not already coming to the annual meeting and swap meet here is another good reason to come.

Just spoke to our guy (that’s me) at Landfallnavigaton.com and there will be some safety related door prize give aways. Not that we need to bribe anyone just one more reason toc come tomorrow.

Don’t forget to pay your 2020 Dues and lunch online for tomorrow.

Fred Greis will be bringing Hal Chamberlain’s HICDIC to our swap meet. I saw the boat in Greenport last month complete with stickers from a 1989 trip to Siberia. It is a piece of local iceboating history and a must-see. Hicdic needs to stay in New England and hopefully, someone can make a new home for her
