No waterskiing. Meet at Peter's place in Newton at ~4:00 PM Drive just a few minutes to the Charles River boat ramp near the Newton/Watertown line. Bring some food and beverage and watch the fireworks from 8-10PM, right in the Charles River. We will anchor/raft up somewhere near the Hatch Shell and the fireworks barge. It will be a late night. Good thing we have a little "head" in the cuddy cabin. We may not get back due to river traffic until very late.  If we have enough people we may be able to line up more boats. If we fill up use the wait-list. So far just one Boat. New rules say that boat cannot move after 7PM until fireworks show is done.

    We had a wonderful night. Spectacular show! Never before had such a good place to watch the fireworks. The day's heat broke just as we left for the Charles River ramp. Good friends,food & drink aboard while we floating waiting for the event to start. We were surprised to be home just about 2 hours after the fireworks show ended.

    Regarding bathroom., boat has a cuddy cabin (tiny cabin) with a portable marine head. On shorter trips I encourage avoiding it, but for a longer trip it is there.
