May 17-19 – Monk Rendezvous

Dozier's Regatta Point Marina

“It’s your place in the world; it’s your life. Go on and do all you can with it, and make it the life you want to live.” —Mae Jemison

We’ve been off the grid a little this past week. We were enjoying the Monk Rendezvous held in Deltaville. It was a lot of fun to visit with people who have the exact boat and understand just how much we love our Monk. The two and a half days were filled with discussions from modifications made on the boats, insurance, engine maintenance, care of the teak, use of electronics, favorite apps and many of other topics, social time, happy hours and dinners, but one of the most enjoyable parts for me was the trawler crawl. During that time we were able to check out the other boats and see how everyone has made their boat a little unique. It was a time to visit with the other owners and see what they liked the best about their boat. The get together was about exchanging ideas, meeting other Monk owners and making new friends. Many we hope to see again on the water.

Most of the boats came in on Tuesday...a cold and very wet day. We were glad we were already in place. 17 boats were expected, but we only had 14 because of the weather.
Our first night get together was a little cold and wet, but still a lot of fun 
Things look a lot pretty when the sun is out 
 Business meeting and topic discussions 
Finally a little sunshine and time to enjoy the beautiful porch at the marina 
Quite a few people had already left by the time we took this group picture. I think we had right at 40 people
