SOS, fellow Rendezvous sailors. I was trying to take my boat out of the water yesterday but I could not keep the motor running (without a lot of choking). I replaced the fuel line and bulb. Cleaned out the tank, and replaced all of fuel.I am checking the fuel pump screen today but I am afraid I mighty need to rebuild the carb which I cannot do in time for the trip. Any suggestions (87 9.9 Johnson). In a pinch does anyone have access to another motor (3-9.9 hp) that they could bring to the rendezvous. I have my electric for docking but this trip will probably require a fair amount of motoring.

One night on the road, a stop at Meijer for "A Rewards Program As Mighty As You", then on to Hessel.

See ya there.


Nice looking craft there Dennis!

Bob will have the Meijer gift cards to give to the fleet, hopefully he can make it, if not he can give them to Dave and Jean to bring up.

Safe travels everyone.

Boat is at the local shop. Waiting for the "damages". I wonder if they'll accept a Miejer's card?

Thanks Guys for your work in obtaining a sponsor.

FYI A new Meijer Store # 107 opened in Sault Ste. Marie Mi. this spring, its across the boarder from us 5 miles away, and the next closest to the Rendezvous site is Petosky store # 96 just southwest of the Mackinaw bridge.

Store # 95 in Gaylod a bit more south is right beside the I-75 and is perfect to get in and out of.

I need a new fuel pump and the carb cleaned (perhaps rebuilt). Should have it back tomorrow. Unfortunately the boat is with them so I may not be able to make some of the cosmetic repairs I wanted to. Another problem. While my trailer was parked near the launch site some one clipped my right boat guide which had a taillight mounted on it. Now I have some wiring to do.

Good luck Bob!

Sapphire is loaded on her trailer and is ready to go. We've got a different tow vehicle and the trailer light plug doesn't reach. So Rod and I will also be doing a little bit of wiring before we set off this morning.

We'll see y'all in Hessel tomorrow afternoon.

We've reserved the slip for 3 nights: Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Is it safe now to cancel the reservation for Saturday night? There is no rain in the forecast, but 10 knots out of the west. Is Saturday night's anchorage protected from a westerly?

S565 R17 Sailors:

Meijer has asked me to share some photos of the fleet flying the Meijer flags on their Facebook page (1.4 M followers) and Twitter (56K).

If someone can email me a few shots of the boats at the marina, maybe with the Meijer banner they supplied on Friday or Saturday AM before heading out that would be great, I will post on the CL and Meijer FB pages Saturday AM. dave@clboatworks.com

Of course lots of photos and video of the fleet sailing through the islands, Meijer would like the exposure to tie into the opening of their first UP store in the UP this spring.

Let's show the people who we are!!

Cheers,

Dave V.

If one of the managers from the S.S.M. store (45 minutes away) was interested he could join us at Hessel for a fleet group photo shoot and we could hold the flag while Mark our host shakes his hand. Like those baseball teams do. They might just love that.

Maybe Early Saturday before we sail, Monday Morning before we haul out, or can even join us Sunday night's at the restaurant.
