This is a wonderful photo. It says it all.

You're in a beautiful cruising ground up there, I'm sure you know this spot...

Caldwell's Creek. Nice. We are now living in St Andrews and don't get up to the river as much. I would love to head for the Labrador coast as well. (Someday).

Like the sig says, this is Patience, my 1968 Allied Seawind 30, hull #105. She's from the same yard as Jon's boat - a very similar design, except for the lack of speed and inability to go to weather! That's OK though. I'm not in a hurry. ;^)

Underway, Gardiners Bay, NY


On her mooring, Old Saybrook, CT

She started her life as a 1964 Sailmaster 22, Sparkman/Stephens design that was modified by the prior owner.
Stretched 2' by adding to the stern, new deck, house, converted to a cutter, added bowsprit and small yanmar. She's a centerboard, drawing 2'11".
OOOOOOHHHH

This is our girl she is fast and handles well. She is alot of fun to sail with our family and friends. Named by our kid she is the Black Pearl, the kids named her and it is still better than Sponge Bob.

Nice boat. I was aboard her when the previous owners visited the St John River. She had been through a recent refit at Seal Cove Boatyard.

Going to windward during the 2012 MD Governor's Cup. I'm in the yellow cap in the companionway. The boat is named for my bride of 30 years, on the port rail in pink over my left shoulder.


2010 MD Governor's Cup near the finish after an incredible night sailing downwind. The sails in this photo are history - literally - I'm making tote & duffle bags from the genoa.
