Welcome back to jets in the NW. If you want a bunch of info on the Mardon weekend go to Skagenboats.com In a nut shell it is the weekend after Laborday, not sure the exact date that lands this year. Since it moved from Laborday weekend it has been growing in attendence and weather depending could be the biggest ever this year. I would recomend getting a reservation asap. I think the cabins have a 2or3 year waiting lst going. If you get in contact and stay on it people do cancel and you may get one if that is what you want, but they always have camping or RV sites. The resort hires a band Saturday night and makes a bunch of bon fires, that part is very nice! It can get windy, so be prepaired for sun or wind. Tony Skagen is the one who organizes it so if need anything give him a call or PM him on his site. I have gone for 7 or so years and have great time every year.
If you make it over the pass some time come out on the Snohomish river great bunch of boaters here.
Did you're boat come from Bob Feils in Wenatchee, they sold a bunch. Had one a long time ago and the folks ran around the Columbia with 4 or 5 that were friends boats. It will pick up soon, keep an eye on the boards and if you get over to Seattle stop and introduce yourself to Jerry and Tony Skagen.
I am not certain where this one came from, but I went to school with Bob Feil's son at Eastmont High. I think his name was Doug? I bought this 14 years ago used and abused for 1K. Had to sell it before I could fix it due to kids and other projects. Just bought it back a few weeks ago.
I will look those fellas up for sure if I get over that way.
I look forward to hitting the river in Wenatchee too, but Osullivan is our favorite.
