    news from work???

    Mike, I know what you mean on news from work, Who gets GOOD news from work any more? I would guess only the people who work the printing presses making money for this Gov'ment.

    Boat looks great. Ted M. is a very generous man indeed, I got a couple of much needed parts as well,

    Have a great sailing season.

    Thanks Carl - we're trying to get out between rain storms!

    Here's Sea Glass at her new mooring, and Orca just beyond. Nice to have another Ariel for company.

    Well, it's been a short but fun Summer. Sea Glass and crew spent the last couple of weekends at Chebeague Island in Casco Bay. Just a few hour sail and we're at the Chebeague Island Boatyard, but it feels worlds away.

    I felt quite at home with all the Alberg hulls in the mooring field. Ensigns are everywhere, they've got a huge fleet there.

    #1 - an Electra
    #2 - Oops! I stand corrected. One much more knowledgeable than myself pointed out this is a Sea Sprite 27, not a CD 27. That means it's not an Alberg hull - but it's still pretty nice...
    #3 - one evening, a Triton pulled in and anchored at Crow Island, just across the way. To the right, you can see an Ensign, just behind it, the recently purchased Commander 126, then some non-Alberg to the left...

    Chebeague Island is a very special place. One day we hiked out to Deer Point, on the SE tip of the island.

    #1 - Deer Point looking West to Little Chebeague Island
    #2 - Deer Point South towards the Atlantic

    Cheers everyone, enjoy the rest of the season! Fall is here in New England.

    No kiddin' there! Thoses hatches have been an inspiration since day one. Put me down for some teak on #113. It won't be on the slider but we'll get some just the same.

    Spring has sprung! Hopefully I'll be putting her on my mooring sometime this weekend.

    Congrats, Mike!

    She looks great out there. That is probably the best use of a webcam I've seen yet!

    I must confess, through the winter months I go to the St. John Island Spice webcam that look out onto Cruz Bay Ferry dock. Whew! That was cathartic. Thank you, Mike.
    My home has a keel.

    So I headed out to the island this weekend to bring Sea Glass to her home mooring. The forecast was for 70's and sunny with a nice breeze picking up in the afternoon, thanks to a high camped offshore for a few days.

    Sunday morning, my wife took me up the the ferry landing and this...
