Boneclave 2009 - Who's coming?

Hello,

I just realized the Boneclave is coming up fast. I will have some separate threads for food, contributions, planning and discussion on food.. Saturday Dinner, breakfast, etc..

Who is planning on attending Boneclave this year and when?
Will you have a boat with you or do you need a lift?
If you require a lift some members typically assist in shuttling people out to the Island. We will need to work scheduling with them and please be patient as the details and resource availability come together.

If you have a boat how many people you might be able to take out (ie open slots for fishing). Can you assist in Shuttling?

Please let us know on this thread.

Despite months of working issues with my boats and trailers..
I'm still not ready. I'm planning on having it together after the weekend though, hate to have to be restricted to a Kayak this year :-(

Thanks, Greg

I am trying my damnedest to rearrange my life to get down for this. Without being unfair to others, is there an outside date by which a commitment is needed?

I'm in for fri, sat, night camping. Can't resist that place fish or no. I remember 1 year being trapped inside by huge waves. But the island was still awesome.
Bringing propane tank, gas tree, stove, grill.
I'll have my skiff (45 years of fishing in that boat ) room for 1 more for ferrying.
I'm also bringing my stash of forum bone flies

I'm in ! ! !

I have clearance from my boss and the guy I work for to be there Friday through Monday, although the actual duration of my stay may be dependant upon the shuttle situation because I might not have my boat this time around and might have to rely on others for transportation to and from the island.

I should know by Monday if I will have the boat or not. I have to work out some motor issues this weekend. Either way, I won't be able to bring much for supplies or gear for community use. If I have the boat I can take one passenger to/from the jetties but will not have room to shuttle anyone to/from the island because the boat will be fully loaded with myself and my gear alone.

Tom -- I've never paddled a kayak before but if I don't have my boat I may be interested in trying out one of your Pungos to get to and from the jetties.

Talking kayak

Quentin, I thought you came out in one one year, maybe a canoe... or maybe it was someone else?

Hi Tom,

I know I went back home and got my Kayak one year, after almost getting my truck and boat seized at Jehu ramp for leaving it overnight.

I drove back home unloaded the boat and loaded the Kayak and paddled all the way out under the moonlight just in time to see the last standing fisherman before bedtime...

Got out into the albies the next day in my Kayak....It was fun..

But other have come in Kayaks too.

Greg

Regrettably, I'm out

Yesterday ended 14 consecutive days of small boat racing . The good news was it blew hard all but one day and we were fast; the bad news, my hands are like hamburger and my shoulder has packed it in again. Hopefully, ice-packs and PT will allow me a few trips before it shuts down.
Greg, I'll PM you.

Wasn't me! I've had my tin boat every time I've been there.

Speaking of which . . . I will have the boat this year so I should be all set for transportation to/from the island. My 3 hp motor needs lower unit work but I tried out a 4 hp 4-stroke that was given to me and it seems to work fine, although it has its quirks. Doesn't always start on the first pull like the 3 hp but it pushes the boat a little better .
