Default Puget Sound Rendezvous?

Hello all Puget Sound area folks. I was just reading recent posts and have come to notice that there seem to be quite a few Puget Sounders on here. We should plan a weekend rendezvous somewhere this summer.

Yeah, I would be interested actually. We keep our boat in Everett, but frequently make trips down to Seattle or up into the San Juans. I think a group of Maxums together would be a quite a sight, and it would be great to get to know some of the folks around here.

What did you have in mind? South Sound deep, up North, dockside, or a flotilla barged together on a couple of hooks? We have plans on the next few holiday weekends already at least, but with exception of a few family gathering weekends, are pretty open into the fall. Hopefully Summer has finally arrived this week!

Would we allow the Maxum-less members? I know this character that sometimes hangs around here, heck of a guy, always happy to help... Sea-somethin' rather.

Sorry Ed... For those of us that live around here, most think it's Heaven on Earth. I forget others don't know or really care. When I visited Europe make in the mid-90's (including Amsterdam - beautiful town) and told people I was from Seattle in Washington State, most would say "Washington DC?" or "...is that near Hollywood?" Erm, not really, but that's ok.

A few pics

ouch.....I can beg with the rest of them.....lets figure on someplace in the middle...like bremerton..port orchard..or maybe poulsbo....(I need docks to get the dogs off for potty breaks)...

actually it's now called the Salish Sea..(what moron thought that up)..but the Puget sound is here in Washington state and is one of the most impressive places to boat!!....

Good idea. I hadn't thought about the pups. I haven't been to any of those places, but I believe I've read Bremerton can be a tricky approach at the entrance depending on the tide and wind.

BTW Steve - if you're around Friday evening, stop by. We're taking the boat out for a short post-fix dry run (cooling system) and I've got an unrelated short tale you might find entertaining. If not, another time.

and bremerton is easy to get into since they redesigned the whole place..new docks ..etc....nice place to go....

PS..my boat is known in these circles as a maxliner or a Bay-um....so..I qualify....
