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, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.

beach

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!?!
