Shanghaied in Westbrook

[This thread continues a previous thread found here: Your chance to tell me where to go - departing Montauk]


This is davidpm, I'm here in Westbrook, CT my home port. I'm on Bene505's boat, using his account. Brad is working through his list of on-board firsts.
First time is Westbrook, CT
First solo in long island sound
First time with harnes and jacklines.
First time a Bill's seafood, with 20 piece band.
And of course first time baking cookies on board.

Oh yes I'm playing hookie from work tomorrow to go to port jeff.

If you've done Bill's, next best is Boom, at Brewer's Pilot's Point marina. Not the same atmosphere, however.

Guys, it was blowing like stink yesterday. I was down at the water in the morning, pleasant breeze. I went back about 3pm, the Sound was all ripped up, there was a dust storm in the parking lot, I went home to cook chicken soup. The soup was good.
Bene is a wild man.

hi John,

You missed them. Believe it or not, they made it to Port Jeff on Tuesday around noon (I think). Brad and I left this morning (Wednesday) around 9:00 am and sailed, then motorsailed to Sea Cliff.

I survived the trip from wesbrook to Port Jeff.

I wasn't going to go but the hatch was guarded so I couldn't leave.
