Interesting site documenting a Marinette Restoration

Here’s an interesting site I stumbled across recently that documents a 1978 Marinette Restoration:

Looks like he put a lot of time into the boat. I’ll look more at his techniques later and maybe update this.

Anyway, the boat is for sale if anyone is interested. Looks like it still needs some work though.

Marinette Rendezvous Cancelled

Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, I have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Marinette Rendezvous. The bridge feels it is the socially responsible thing to do during these difficult times to keep everyone safe.

Anyone who already registered will have their check returned to them.
Clothing and Burgees are still available if anyone is interested. Please contact Nancy Plosker for Burgees or Julie Purnell for clothing/hats.
