The Boat Ride (Captain's Lady) cost:
This is the first year that the conference departs out or Rye Harbor instead of Portsmouth. The Captain's Lady I and II were used to ferry all conferees to the island in a staggered schedule. Old Shoalers will remember this was the way it used to be.

$30 for adults $25 under 12

Special Notes:
The reason that we needed to start working out of Rye Harbor is that the ISSCO, home of the Thomas Leighton, was not able to offer us a new contract because of the upgraded requirements of the Homeland Security Dept. Because of the size of the boats, two trips were needed to convey the entire conference.
