downeast450 Rik,

One other thought. You can usually pick up a mooring or drop a hook inside Baker Island (the eastern inside). A short row to a rocky little beach where you drag your dinghy up above tide and a 20 minute walk to the ocean side of the island for lunch on Dance Hall Rocks. It is part of Acadia National Park and the trails are traveled well enough to follow easily. A couple of small houses are privately owned but everything else is the preserved home of the Gilley's who colonized the island. Spectacular!

downeast450 Rik,

That is my kind of plan! I know it will be a spectacular few weeks. Our sailing plans are quite unreliable this summer, so far. Lots of family stuff that is taking us away from Mount Desert Island. We enjoy 6 adult children and siblings with similar tribes. They are all at the age of propagation and or deciding on a spouse which creates many required trips away. Tundra Down sits on our mooring in Seal Harbor for weeks of tenderloin sailing time. It will be a fall season this year for us. Perhaps next year I will get a chance to show you the radar mast you inspired. Enjoy one of the worlds finest cruising destinations. If you get the opportunity to stop at The Ilsford Dock Restaurant (little Cranberry Island) take it.

Penobscot and environs


OK - Thursday we hope to start down the river, through the Reversing Falls, out into the Bay of Fundy and turn right (west). We plan to spend the next four, five or six weeks in, around, above and maybe below the Penobscot.

Anyone want to have a Sailnet hookup, share a beer or a coffee?

We will check email and Sailnet regularly - most places have a library and most libraries have internet. If you know you will be down (or up) there - send us a PM and we can share emails or phone numbers.

So far the schedule is to join the Seven Seas Cruising Association ( as an invited people) Downeast Gam at Islesboro, on Aug. 6, 2011

Other plans are open.

Just a thought.

Shalom all

Have a super summer sailing.

Rik, Linda and Captain Hook
