MMI Meet and Greet in Annapolis - April 29, 2017

Live in or near the Annapolis, MD area? Join us for a Moyer Marine "Meet and Greet" at Cantler's Riverside Inn in Annapolis Saturday, April 29th, beginning at 1:00 pm.

A Chesapeake Bay icon, Cantler’s waterfront restaurant and crab house is located on Mill Creek just minutes from Annapolis City Dock. It has been serving the area’s freshest seafood to watermen, boaters, and land lovers alike for nearly four decades. You can find more information, including directions, at its website here.

A number of our Forum MVP's live within reasonable driving distance, and we are hoping that many of them will plan to attend. Additionally, we have learned that Neil Dutton ("ndutton" on our forum) will be in the area for a few days and plans to join us as well.

A reasonably prompt RSVP via a reply to this post would be appreciated.

Bill

Damn! That's right in my backyard, but we won't be back until June.
Currently anchored in between Allen's Cay, Leaf Cay, and SW Allen's Cay in the northern Exumas. Going to see the iguanas later this morning.

Really sorry I'm going to miss this event.

Damn. I can't be there either but I have been to Cantler's. I highly recommend the blackend Rockfish for anyone who is not a Blue Crab aficianado.
My friend keeps an Endeavor 32' around the corner up Burley Creek.
Have fun one and all.

I'll be there. I feel like I need to buy a couple hundred beers to all who show up as a thanks for all the advice and certainly the camaraderie exhibited here.
As a noob, I am looking forward to rubbing shoulders with the forum greats!

It looks like there will be several ladies present, including my own (although she doesn't know that yet).

Tom, I think we all felt that way when we were newbies!!!! If y'all go re-read my babblings you'd wonder why I hadn't died in my own shipwreck!

Shawn, interestingly enough, it was your thread on your shaft log replacement adventure that encouraged me to buy Patina. When Patina and I found each other, she was a grand old girl that had some wonderful upgrades done to her, but had sat unused for a few years and a leaking chain plate had left a mess down below. I knew I could fix most anything on this boat (her bones were good, she just needed a facelift), but the recently replaced MMI Atomic 4 was a bit of a mystery. Going from my little 7.5 HP Merc (I grew up on 2-stroke Mercs) on my Catalina 25 to an honest to goodness "marine engine" gave me pause. After checking over the boat the first time, I came home and googled "Universal Atomic 4" and in short order found this forum. Your thread was very active at that time and was the first one I read. The stunning camaraderie of this forum and its participants coupled with MMI's complete parts department immediately put those fears to rest. I made an offer on Patina the next day.

Launch Day

Darn, as fate would have it, that's the day Whippet gets dunked into Lake Ontario for the season start.

It would have been my pleasure to see you all including Neil who's flying in from the left coast. Gee, his arms will be tired.

You've all been a big help to me over the years and I'm thankful every time she purrs to life when I hit the starter.

MMI Meet and Greet

Wow! A mere 120 miles to combine the Annapolis sailing scene, the renowned Cantler's cuisine and most importantly, a chance to personally meet the MMI team (lifesavers) and fellow A-4 cultists. Almost too good to be true. My wife and I will definitely be there.

Thank you for working to plan this event.

MMI Meet and Greet

I just started my first Atomic 4 rebuild today, so wish this were sooner. I plan on being at the boat show, so will plan on being there for this meet and greet too. I'll hopefully be bringing stories about completing my build!

Wink The MMI Cofee mug

Wow, sounds like some real fun to me. I would attend if I were near the area but that is just not the case. I would be very interested and I no longer have an A-4 to brag about!!!!!!!!

Just last week I was on the dock with the new boat and a neighbor and I began talking. He noticed my "MMI Coffee Cup" with coffee (and a splash of rum Edward) and he commented on the cup and the A-4 as a bomb. Well I looked right back at him as we were talking about my B-393. He commented how lucky I was to have a diesel and no A-4 and never really wondered why "I" would have such a cup. I told him how much my wife does not like the "stink" of the new boat and I was working out a plan to install 2 A-4's for power and reliability without the stink.

He was clueless on engines in general and I tried convincing him of the track record of the A-4 and he was certainly surprised at how many and how long so many are still running. It surprised him and he walked away kinda shaking his head as to my so called future power plants~pretty funny really.

You guys have fun! I have enjoyed meeting quite a few "Afourian''s" over the last many years.

Dave Neptune

Dave you need to be careful what you say you might give Neil ideas. Visions of TOMMY IVEO and his 4 engine dragster. Sounds like the new boat is working out good??

Uh, that would be TV Tommy Showboat Ivo, yes? And yeah, it was just Dave's turn and I'm sure it wasn't the first time. We've all run into diesel snobs running their mouths when they don't have any idea what they're talking about.

As for cabin diesel odors, my Perkins didn't smell at all because I chased all the fuel leaks before I installed her and replaced all the banjo washers as a precaution.

Anybody going to the Annapolis Boat Show on Friday April 28? I'm thinking about it.

This is a get together I would really like to attend!
I would even cut work to fly over and attend...

...except, I have a job that starts on the 28th in KONA.
Hard to turn that down.

I'll hoist a mai tai to you guys.

I had a cup of coffee in my MMI Coffee Cup today, Dave! (no rum, however) we just had our sailing club's annual awards banquet and I'd had plenty last night.

I do look forward to seeing and meeting everyone that can attend!
