Post subject:  Lake Nockamixon Meets?

I joined this forum in 2014 with great excitement. As often happens other priorities have steered my life.

I was hoping to attend a Lake Nockamixon meet this year. So I looked at the International Steamboating.org schedule. It appears that it has not been updated since 2016.

Are the Lake Nockamixin meets still being held? Where can I look for more information?

Any info is most appreciated.

Haycock Ramp, boats generally gather in the AM, although I usually arrive late morning. Thanks Don for running this event for years.

Fred, is your dinghy/canoe thingy a smaller version of the steamer? I note both are paddlers.

Yes, Sidewheeler and "Sister" are the same hull lines, Sister is 55% size of the steamer. I had never built a boat, so before I attempted the large steamer I wanted to build something smaller.

Schedules forced building the bigger hull first, but we have fun with the little hull too. I will often anchor the steamer offshore and use the little boat to get ashore, tying the sidewheeler to a dock is difficult with the side paddlewheels.

Fred, I love running the meet and have met many great people who have steamboats, are wannabes or just stumbled upon the meet and would like a ride. hoping to be back in the water soon and it is nice to hear a Thank-you once in a while....the October meet is fun but tiring and I sink a fair amount of my own money into the dinner to make it fun for everyone.

Don
