Allied Seawind ketch heading from Cape May, NJ to Chessy and points south

Disclaimer: I inspected this yacht and sailed with the new owner from Northport, NY to NYC on a low visibility afternoon recently. We spent one night anchored off City Island and I left him after a fun motor and sail down the East River. At the 59th Street Boat Basin in New York City and took the subway home. It was a great time and he is a good man and a good sailor and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

I hope some upper Chessy sailors might want to help pilot Ian through the C&D canal and once on the Chesapeake there are lots of places to pick up and drop off crew members. Ever sail on a ketch rigged sailboat like an Allied Seawind 32'? It was a great experience for me and I encourage others to encourage Dr. Ian Scott (yes, he is mostly Scottish) as non-paid crew to help him get this nice classic plastic 'old shoe' boat down the coast.
I would join him if not for my own boats in the water and commitments on land.

Ian,

I'd love to pay a visit - I'm not far away. Unfortunately I can't crew this weekend, but I'd like to see your ship.

PM me if you'd like.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
