First Boat North?

If anyone knows why I shouldn't get the tee shirt, please let me know.

Re: First Boat North?

You get the t-shirt, RL, I think, on a technicality.
You really weren't that far south, and didn't go very far north.

Re: First Boat North?

You could have sailed it in 4 days. Do they give any awards for motoring a sailboat in the ICW?
If you're retired, what's your hurry?

Re: First Boat North?

I should had said that I meant the ICW which readers of my SBO blog would understand. Most people go outside at one of the Beauforts so the section I traversed is the primary route.

It wouldn't have been any great shakes for a larger boat with crew but I feel pretty good for having done it alone in 32 footer with no dodger. Anyway, I'm not really claiming anything special but reporting how I felt after 10 days of hard traveling.

As for going north, a couple years ago, I was nine miles off Petit Manan in Maine headed towards Portland on the third week in May returning from a cruise to Canada. I think I do get a tee shirt for that.

Since this isn't SBO, don't assume your audience knows what you are talking about.
If you want us to read your blog, link it in your sig.

These guys got your shirt Roger. This family of 4 cleared customs in Rockport from Canada a couple years ago. They had come from Holland to Canada across the North Atlantic around the first of the year.

I had to meet this family. Their two girls were clearing the dock for their dad(they brought their own snowshovels).

They were on a fast circle of the Atantic and would head south from here.

I asked the Dad if wanted any advice on harbors and things to the south. With complete nonchalance, he thanked me, and said, "Oh, we've done this trip before....."

They had a sense of humor and left nothing but a snowman, with a warm hat.

Maybe you could qualify for a "Participation" ribbon.

No, I think that within the class I was referring to, first Beaufort, SC to Hampton, VA transit of 2013, singlehanded, in a 32 foot boat with no dodger, green sheer stripe, and skipper over sixty, I get the top award.

BTW for the 484 nm and 80 hour of moving transit time, I averaged 6.05 knots with no days lost due to weather. That's a speed length ratio of 1.22 for my boat. I wouldn't expect to do that again.

I purchased 68 gallons of diesel during the period which, allowing for cabin heater consumption, agrees closely with that data from sea trials I conducted a couple years ago. At a typical price of $4.00 per gallon, the trip compared favorably with flying back up.
