2019 Northeast Ranger Tugs / Cutwater Gathering
Pope's Island Marina in New Bedford, MA August 9-11.
Hosted by the Northeast Ranger / CW Owners Association
This event is open to current Ranger Tug and Cutwater owners and to anyone else who is interested in the boats. Come by land or by sea.
If you are bringing your boat to the Gathering, make your reservations directly with the Marina:
(Penny is the Dockmaster at Pope's Island Marina in New Bedford)
Pope's Island Marina
102 Pope's Island
New Bedford, MA 02740
If you are towing your boat, there is a nice boat ramp in Fairhaven (99 Pease Street, Fairhaven, MA, 02719). It's a double ramp with floating dock, about ¼ mile to the marina. There is a parking fee per day at the ramp. You can ask the folks at the marina if the rig could be parked in their lot.
If you are coming without a boat, there are several hotels, motels, and at least one Bed & Breakfast nearby. There is one motel within walking distance of the marina: Seaport Inn in Fairhaven http://www.reservations.com/hotel/seaport-inn-and-marina?rmcid=rcc2
From the coordinators (April 27, 2019):
A bit early, but I am getting the word out now so you can put it on your calendars. This year it will be August 9th, 10th and departing the 11th. As with last year, we are keeping it simple. Friday night pot luck, Saturday morning a boat crawl, then free time to visit the town and a pizza dinner Saturday evening.
The Marina is holding 12 slips at this time and your reservations are to be done directly to them.
If you plan on attending, please e-mail me to let me know and include your boat model, size, boat name, your's and your guest's name, e-mail and phone number. Once you are on the list any additional information etc. will be sent to you as it comes in. Mike Rizzo
