Little mishap in my neck of the woods

Luckily no one was hurt. But for a trip to Florida they didn't make it very far.

Taking a 20 footer from Maine to Florida in late October doesn't sound very smart.

I've been to Plum Island several times- beautiful place this is an interesting story thanks for sharing

you would think the writer should have done his home work- at least taken a yard stick out there- sure looks a lot longer than 20 feet to me

Re: Little mishap in my neck of the woods

Agree the boat looks 25-26 feet.. nice job getting her off the beach. Beautiful spot otherwise....

But you gotta wonder at someone trying to make that delivery this time of year - and not even the owner!?!
