Re: Francis Drake build

Mark, when you dealt with noah's, did you have any issues with the quality of the lumber they sent you? I will have a 15000 dollar order to them in the spring for the francis drake hull......as far as I know they are the only marine lumber shop in canada that handles the east coast.

Re: Lake Powell Gathering July 11-13, 2014

Yeah, it should be quite pretty.....and since I'm a big Piano Guys fan, it'll be nice to be close to bryce canyon....... have you thought about doing something in the pacific northwest along the columbia river perhaps........with portland and vancouver there, and lots of places along the river.........
