"Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing — absolute nothing — half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. Simply messing... about in boats — or with boats. In or out of 'em, it doesn't matter. Nothing seems really to matter, that's the charm of it. Whether you get away, or whether you don't; whether you arrive at your destination or whether you reach somewhere else, or whether you never get anywhere at all, you're always busy, and you never do anything in particular; and when you've done it there's always something else to do, and you can do it if you like, but you'd much better not."-Ratty

The Forth Annual Finley Point Messabout is scheduled for May Date TBA based at Finley Point State Park on the south end of Flathead Lake. The event is designed around sail and oar boats under 25' LOA. A new twist will be sailing to and or from the event site at Finley Point. Keeping Ratty's wisdom in mind no scheduled events are set but a community potluck is planned for Saturday night. With a wide range of sailing and rowing destinations in the midst of beautiful Montana scenery this is a great kickoff to the 2015 boating season. This page will direct you to further information on both the park and the lake. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you!
