Mile mark 212.5, at Portage Des Sioux, MO. That's about 40 miles above St Lou, and I have seen Sciota on the creek. Used to sail on L Michigan, but moved here about the time you mustered out. Much prefer the Great Lakes but it is a long commute. Plan to go back when we retire.

Thanks. That was the name that the PO had given it and we thought it was appropriate after looking for our boat for almost a year so we kept it. We got engaged (after 5 years together) the same weekend we closed on the boat... so double the meaning. Now we just have to change the hailing port from Bath to Oriental. I suppose we should crack a bottle of champagne on the bow too right?

Ha. No, not Screen Gems. I work at the NC Museum of History in Raleigh. My parents built a house in Oriental in the late 70's and my fiance and i keep our boat there... in Greens Creek. Oriental is like home to me even though i'm from Raleigh. It has completely changed in the last 5 years though!

We sailed out in the Sound a couple days ago, but conditions were not that pleasant, so pulled into a coastal island harbor for the night . . .


Hey ya'll...I love your boat...if and when I can afford a 30'+ boat, it may well be one like yours. I like the pilothouse sailers. It may be the ole "gearhead" in me!!
