Re: Preview - Paragon's North Atlantic Adventure
With some advanced notice (like a day or 2), I can film you going up the East River in NY, from the 35th floor of a waterfront skyscraper. Please let me know if you want that.
Also, you have a place to stay on land and a loaner car if you dock in Nassau County, NY. We'll get the NY Sailnetters together to buy you dinner too.
The new/repaired bowsprit looks great.
Hi Brad, Thank you so much for offering to film us as we went by. It would have been the most amazing thing to see video of Paragon from the skyscraper! We were just about to contact you when the dockmaster at the West 79th Street Boat Basin marina told us that we would have to raise anchor and leave the area in the morning because they were going to put in the mooring balls. With only 12 hours notice, we had to scramble to get Paragon ready to move. We went up the East River before we could contact you. Since then we've spent a week at anchor in City Island and Manhasset, a week at anchor in Mount Sinai harbor in Long Island, and are now at anchor in Newport, RI. We push off for Boston tomorrow morning. Thank you so much for your kind offer. We hope to be back in NY in a few years and would love to get that footage!
