    Default New York gathering

    Im curious, is there any type of gathering around Central/Western NY? I live in the Rochester/Finger Lakes region and would love to get together with others to see their boats and have some fun on the water. My boat is not race worthy but I would still be interested in taking it to races.

    That would be awesome however I need to stay a little closer to home at the moment. My wife just had hip surgery yesterday so someone needs to take care of her. Plus the motor is still in the garage along with the Hallcraft parts, I need to get moving on that! Maybe towards the end of summer I can travel a little farther.

    Not a lot of v-drive boats in NY I am east around Cooperstown and there are
    only 4 or 5 any where close to me. Up in the north east there are a few.
    A number of years ago we would get together on Schroon Lake 2 times a year
    it's been over 7 years and no gathering.

    I might have to try putting something together once mine is in the water. My boat used to race on Irondequoit Bay here in Rochester. I guess there used to be a few of them in this area. There was one for sale not too long ago on Craigslist and I once ran into a guy on Canandaigua Lake with one but those are the only ones I am aware of.

    I am in Binghamton. I tried once to get a group together. My good friend Hostile is the only one that showed up. I have a Nordic Flat and a Schiada. My old stevens is about 20 miles away. A friend of mine has two V-Drives on Canandaigua . A friend had a real nice Hondo flat but he sold that to a guy in Canada. There are a few more around. Most sit in the garage...

    Name the time and place, I'm known to show up.

    Maybe we could try again, I am willing to help out any way I can....been ocean boating this summer due to never having any one to hang with. You're in Connecticut right?, I've heard the river has some good gatherings but I don't want to go without some local knowledge first

    I just got mine on the water for the first time since the late 70s. Still sorting some things out with it but its loud and fast! So for the rest of the year I will be spending time on Canandaigua lake most Saturdays and Sundays. We usually anchor at the north end to relax/drink/eat. If anyone wants to meet up I am cool with that, you can't miss my Howard!

    For Labor Day weekend I will be up in the 1000 Islands, staying at Wellesley Island State Park. If all goes well in the next week I will be bringing the Howard along.

    Shoot me a private message with some contact info if interested.
