I'm in the boston area and have a super flexiable schedule, just let me know when and where you wanna meet. We can even go sailing on the charles in a little 15' Cape Cod if you want (I'm sorta a lousy sailor so you may get wet:laugh).

I dont think we'd head to Bens, its a decent drive. Probably just go to the lake thats 1/2 mile from the house :)

:thumbup doesn't make any difference to me. Closer is better with gas prices though (although at 75mpg on the DR250SE I'm not too fussed:laugh)

BTW John, this ski is totally sick. I've never been on anything on water that hooked up and took off with such violence. It feels like launching a TLS on nice sticky asphalt, the fact it goes so suddenly on water seems to defy physics:hail

sounds like a plan, give me a ring and let me know :bananaif we go jet skiing we may head to bens after all, it's a bigger lake and it'll be more fun to have a house to hang out at, and he said it's cool if you guys come :thumbup

Whatever you wanna do Will, I'll be happy either way:thumbup
I don't need much space for jetskiing with my paltry abilities:laugh

John, the sailing site is http://www.community-boating.org/ I have a membership and a "helmsan" rating so its free for us to use the boats as much as we like. I'm only rated for the Cape Cod Mecurys though (they seat up to 4 and work great with 2 people, just not the fastest or prettiest boats in the water).

:thumbup they float pretty well and the wind has typically been in the 4-15kt range, usually closer to 4 than 15, but the sails are pretty large so even with 4-6kts the boat will move along ok:)
