Letters absolutely no success in locating any information over the Internet about the artist and this painting, and have even checked the James Ford Bell Museum site. Can you provide some link to the artist and/or the painting? I have not tried at any library yet, but plan to do so. Per Randby York, Maine Editor’s Note: If you Google “Francis Lee Jaques,” you’ll find numerous references to the artist and some stunning images of his work. Jaques (1887-1969) was a brilliant wildlife artist who created several federal duck stamps. We have been unable to locate any prints of “The Cloud” for sale. The intangibles of cruising are many, and they include, for the early riser, mirrored harbor surfaces in the post-dawn light.

Picture-perfect: Islesford, Maine Attached is a picture taken by me in the early morning of June 5 at the dock on Little Cranberry near Mount Desert Island. Note the almost perfect reflection on the calm water. Hope you find it interesting. I was a member of the [Points East] flotilla during the early June 2003 cruise to Nova Scotia and Grand Manan. Haven’t been able to manage joining recently because of family visits at our summer home that always seem to conflict with mid-season flotillas. Peter Linder Surry, Maine

This “sundog” was photographed by Stone Horse sailor Tom Kenney from Padanarum Harbor.

Can’t you even spell ‘Andrea’? I enjoyed the June issue, but I was surprised to read of the Andria Doria. I remember the news very well; my husband was stationed in Norfolk, Va., at the time. But the correct spelling should be “Andrea,” not “Andria.” I read this article the same day I worked a crossword puzzle using the same reference (46 down). Betty Koch Boothbay Harbor, Maine Betty: Thanks for catching us with our double-bibs down. The fault lies entirely with the editorial staff (which the publisher is going to replace if the monkey business continues) and not with author Marilyn Hanft.

Where can I find that cloud print? I found the editorial (“Bring in the Clouds,” July 2011) about the limited-edition print of “The Cloud” by Francis Lee Jaques to be outstanding. I have had www.pointseast.com

A sundog in South Dartmouth I shot this photograph of a sundog from the New Bedford Yacht Club launch dock in beautiful downtown Padanarum, Mass. Sundogs are actually the bright spots clearly visible in the photo. Tom Kenney South Dartmouth, Mass.

Sixth tactic for boating newbie Barbara Burt penned an interesting and instructive piece (“Five Tactics for Boating with a Newbie”) in the July Issue of Points East, and as an old, experienced hand with the slosh bucket, I enjoyed the read with interest. Referring to the final tactic in the article that touched on “pale faces turning green,” I recalled many similar situations. Points East August 2011

All five tactics were sound and proper – and very familiar. The only addition I would make to the Burt’s tactic list is one I’ve always used. Nobody – no guest, no crewman, no one at all – was allowed to utter the word “seasick” aboard my vessel while under sail or power, or even in the slip. The ashen face of a newbie and eyes wobbling around in their sockets never indicated to me the need for someone to ask, “Are you gonna be seasick?” You knew this just activated a reflex valve instantly emptying the contents of the newbie’s stomach. In the mind of every newbie, there is that hidden fear of embarrassment: “I hope I don’t get seasick,” “Oh, I feel funny,” or just a simple “Oh no!” All these are psychological triggers and are just as bad as the finger-down-the-throat treatment. The use of the word “seasick” should be banned from all vessels. ’Tis the seed of doubt we plant in the mind of the newbie, never thinking that the fruits of our labors would end up on the deck. Of course, where there’s a cure, there should be a trigger. When one is burdened with a guest who claims to have sailed around the world 32 times while blindfolded, or who swam the Atlantic with an anvil strapped to his back, you should be allowed to bring out the raw, littleneck and oyster sandwiches, smeared with soured cream and olive slices. That always gets’em. By the way, they aren’t bad at all. Vin Dugas Portsmouth, R.I.

Thought you might appreciate a picture of our newest customer. She’s a mother of three or four. It’s hard to count. But she’s right across from Slip 87, where my boat is docked. Only she’s under the dock. Yeah, Really. We discovered her nest there accidentally while we were adjusting the position of a finger pier. Lean down over the edge of the main dock and look under and this is what you’ll see. Yesterday was a very busy day at the marina, and lots of people were walking on the docks just a few inches above her head. Now we’re counting the days and watching to see when the ducklings hatch. I expect we’ll be surprised and just find them swimming along in the river some morning when we show up for work. Randy Randall Marston’s Marina Saco, Maine

A debate with the ‘time traveler’ By now you are probably inundated by howls of protest concerning intrepid “time-traveler” Capt. Mike

Martel’s claim that journeying the ocean between Gloucester and Portland situates a mariner along a coast devoid of ready anchoring places. For a time-traveler to be unaware that the Isles of Shoals were once a major port on the New England coast is unforgivable. Now they are home to easily entered Gosport harbor that is rarely exposed to significant wave action. Apparently Captain Mike didn’t notice Little Harbor, New Castle on his chart, and so missed that wave-proof shelter and the Wentworth Marina. He states on the basis of hearsay (not experience) that the currents at the mouth of the Piscataqua River make entry difficult, thus denying access to the Portsmouth Yacht Club moorings and docks and the docks of Portsmouth town and Badgers Island as well as the sheltered anchorages of Pepperrell Cove. If he would take a look next time he whizzes by he will see small dinghies happily playing in the river mouth. Maybe he was right to by-pass the splendidly sheltered York Harbor because entering does take some basic skills of seamanship. Kennebunk and Cape Porpoise, the latter with its own entry lighthouse, are easy even for the faint of heart. Stage Harbor is a tad tricky but offers good shelter. Next comes Wood Island, and, for those requiring ultimate security, Biddeford Pool. A few miles farther to the north is the lovely anchorage of Richmond Island. From there it is a short jaunt round Cape Elizabeth to reach Portland. If you will kindly let Capt. Martel have a copy of this note he may, in future, be able to make the Gloucester to Portland trip with minimal anxiety. John Pearson Kittery, Maine Capt. Mike responds: I did not say the route was “devoid of” any places to tuck into. And I’m not sure

why Capt. Pearson is talking about Maine, since my comment, repeated from my friend Ross, was “You’re going to Maine.” The less-friendly coast I refer to extends from Thacher’s Island off Gloucester to north of York. I have no issue with Cape Porpoise or Biddeford Pool. And by the time we were there, there was no point in going into a harbor for the night, since it made more sense to just finish the trip and go in for the night.

The last launch of the Atlantis July 8, 2011. The last launch of the shuttle Atlantis. What a beautiful impressive sight that was. We were anchored about four miles from the launch pad. Two of my friend’s grandsons – Jonathan, 16, and Kyle, 9 – were making their first sailboat cruise. Three days and two nights just to watch the shuttle go up for the last time, maybe 30 or 45 seconds at the most before it disappeared in the clouds. The boys stopped counting boats anchored out there when they reached 100, and said there were still more. It was, in fact, a very impressive sight, and I feel fortunate to be able to get the pictures that I did. Jim Aitken s/v Linda Mae Searsport, Maine

Good day and thanks Points East My wife and I were at Port Harbor Marine, Kittery Branch, buying a new Sailfish when I saw your magazine. We picked up June and July issues and found them to be a great read. You cover so many different

water subjects that we all can find something we really can sink our teeth into. Thanks for adding to my reading enjoyment. Bob Winton Stratham, N.H.

Kudos to Great Bay Marine Many thanks to Great Bay Marine. During Fall 2009, my 28-foot Nauset was pulled for winter storage at Great Bay Marine, Newington, N.H. I decided to go with indoor storage to allow some minor projects to be completed through the winter. Given the facility, and some unexpected work items, I decided to take the time to finish off the work list. This took me through the summer of 2010 and we had a great launch this spring. I wanted to thank Great Bay Marine for all their help, support and flexibility during this period. The service department was easy to work with and accommodating during this period. Specifically, many thanks to Mike, Kyle, Ulrich, Pat and Martha for all your help. John Sakovits Stratham, N.H.

The night sky is awe-inspiring “Bring in the clouds” (Editor’s Page, July) was a nice article. Last year, while sailing down to and back from Bermuda, I did a lot of cloud watching. The vessel had wind-vane self-steering, so while on watch I was looking at the clouds in the daytime and looking at the stars at night. In the Northeast, the view of the sky is often circumscribed, but out to sea the view is entirely different. I am not one to see shapes of things in clouds; however, the shapes of the clouds, as clouds, and the colors and shades are inspiring enough for me. The night sky is often enough to knock my socks off (if I wore socks). The Milky Way from the summit of Mount Washington or from the Gulf of Maine can be awe-inspiring. Doug Meyer Guilford, Conn.

MYSTERY HARBOR/And th e win ner is...

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only deepwater port from Boston to Portland The Mystery Harbor you are featuring in the current issue is Portsmouth, NH, my harbor. The sub going in is headed to Seavey Island in the Piscataqua River, the Navy Shipyard that is over 100 years old. The lighthouse is the Whaleback Light, and there is an additional light farther in at the USCG station. I have seen a storm picture of a wave cresting over the lighthouse shown. Navigators need to pay close attention as the river current, once inside Pepperell Cove, can run up to six knots with the outgoing tide. Portsmouth is the only deepwater port between Gloucester, Mass., and Portland, Maine, so mariners heading Downeast from the south find this an important stopover when taking weather or seas. Portsmouth is a great town of history, culture,

nightlife and restaurants. Temporary moorings and slips can be found on Badger Island or just north of the Memorial lift bridge, affording walking distance to Portsmouthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s downtown. This is all in a working harbor of Navy ships, commercial traffic, lobstermen, sport fisherman and sailors. I sail and race my Catalina 42, Little Wing, from this port. We race every Tuesday night near the Whaleback light and out to Isles of Shoals. My family also does a number of cruises to Newburyport, Cape Ann, Kennebunk and Downeast. As the vice commodore of the Piscataqua Sailing Association, I am proud to call this my home port. Richard G. Shultz Amherst, N.H.

You’re looking at Kittery Point

Your mystery harbor in the July issue of Points East is Portsmouth Harbor, N.H. You are looking at Whaleback light and the Kittery, Maine shore. I grew up on the Eliot side and have been on the Piscataqua River much of my boating life. On the left, out of the camera range, is Fort Constitution in New Castle, where the first, but not acknowledged, hostile act against England took place. The Piscataqua River is very swift, six to eight knots, which discourages many cruising boats. This is sad as there is so much to see, from Strawbery Banke to the Great Bay estuary. The river is very deep, allowing large ships to transit the river inland with a marked channel of 35 feet, though depths of 50 and 70 feet are common. Transient mooring can be obtained at the Portsmouth Yacht Club, just inside the harbor entrance, and other marinas all the way to the Great Bay Marina. Anchoring is not recommended due to the swift current and very poor holding ground. The New Hampshire side of the river is very commercial or industrial all the way to the entrance to the bays, while the Maine side is essentially residential. The area is historical, with some lovely architecture, wonderful restaurants, and activities. I highly recommend stopping there. Rob Hutton Seaford, Del.

Hey this was easy: It’s Portsmouth harbor, and that’s Whaleback Lighthouse in the distance. Of course, the sub helps identify it, too. That’s the old life boat station back on the left on Wood Island. There’s a group raising money to save and restore it. You are looking at Kittery Point. Pepperell Cove has a restaurant – Captain and Patty’s – and guest moorings from the town of Kittery. You can continue upriver under two bridges: Memorial Bridge and Sara Long Bridge, under the I-95 bridge and on to Great Bay Marine. You have to go under the General Sullivan Bridge to get there, though – very treacherous. You could also pull onto the New Hampshire side to the Portsmouth Dock (daily and overnight slips when available) before the Memorial Bridge. There’s lots to do in downtown Portsmouth, and Prescott Park has entertainment throughout the summer. Portsmouth Yacht Club may have guest moorings; I don’t know for sure. William H. Bowman Eliot, Maine

We watched USS Virginia here I bet you’ll get lots of correct answers for this month’s mystery harbor. That’s a sub passing by Whaleback Light at the entrance to the Piscataqua River. One cold November morning we watched the

USS Virginia exit. We were docked for the winter at Badger Island Marina East with our stern facing the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Whistles started blowing early that morning. By 7 a.m. the sub had been maneuvered away from its berth and was making its way down the river. We made our way to the car and followed the same route that the sub was taking, stopping at different vantage points, and finally at New Castle Common to take pictures, where we found Navy families doing the same thing. It was the beginning of a long separation from loved ones for the families we talked to. Paula Harrington Wolfboro, N.H.

Sub is heading for Naval Shipyard I always feel a little guilty when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m identifying my home harbor. The photo shows a sub entering Portsmouth Harbor. The lighthouse in the background is Whaleback light. It is undoubtedly on its way into the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard.

His pal hit a sub in the river mouth This is Portsmouth, of course. My old friend, Gordon Swift, who built wooden boats in Kensington, N.H., told me a story about coming into the Piscataqua late one pitch black night 40 or 50 years ago. He knew that he was halfway in from Gosport in the Isles of Shoals and had a good three or four miles of clear water ahead when his sailboat went hard aground and started to pitch up on to an obstruction that shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been there. His bewilderment ended when a searchlight came on, and someone on the submarine heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just hit started telling him off. He responded with a few, probably colorful words about the running lights they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t using.

Grand-dad was lighthouse keeper

Right in Points East’s backyard

The Mystery Harbor photo shows a nuclear submarine passing Whaleback Lighthouse about to enter Portsmouth Harbor. Wood Island Life Saving Station is at the far left of the photo. My grandfather, Arnold B. White, was keeper at Whaleback from 1921 through 1941. The submarine is inbound to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard for refueling. Charles Petlick Greenland, N.H.

The July Mystery Harbor is right in Points East’s own backyard. Having little to identify the harbor in terms of ‘landmarks’, other than the partially obscured lighthouse, the submarine may be the most important clue. Navigation entering the harbor is straightforward, beginning with the whistle buoy R “2KR” (Kitts Rock) to starboard. Range markers ashore on Kittery Point, just to the west of Pepperrell Cove will aid in aligning you with the entrance, which is also the New Hampshire and Maine state line. The grey-stone Wood Island light will be to starboard followed by the Portsmouth Harbor (New Castle) light at Fort Constitution, to port. Although the harbor entrance is well marked, entering the harbor should be done with caution as it is the mouth of the Piscataqua River, known to be among the fastest moving currents in North America. A shipping route for tankers and other large craft, it is also the entrance to the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, a maintenance station for U.S. Navy attack submarines. Security is high here so keep a respectable distance from Seavey Island and other restricted areas of the naval base. Visitors will find accommodations limited in the area at the height of the season but may find transient

Kept schooner on mooring nearby I believe this is the approach to the Piscataqua River. I used to keep my little schooner Simplicity on a mooring (Dions) in the Back Channel between Kittery and the Portsmouth Navy Yard. Sometimes I’d anchor, or pick up a mooring in Pepperell Cove, below Fort McClary. As I was very underpowered – four horsepower in a 35-foot schooner – I could only enter and leave at slack tides, necessitating a stop in Pepperell Cove from time to time because the current in the river has been known to run as fast as seven knots.

docks or moorings available at Little Harbor, Pepperrell Cove – on the Kittery Maine side – or Prescott Park, including Strawbery Banke, the place to go for shopping, dining, and historic tours. Beyond Prescott Park, upstream from Portsmouth Harbor, are two lift bridges, the Memorial Bridge and the Sarah Long Bridge, opening on the half-hour and hour. They can be hailed on Channel 13. Again, use caution while navigat-

ing the river, particularly during ebb and flow as the current is swift and the bottom is smooth rock. Mistakes near the bridges can easily put a vessel in jeopardy with little hope of securing an anchor should a propeller become fouled or an engine fail. The Piscataqua River provides access to Great Bay, a salt water estuary providing anchorage and good protection in foul weather. A few miles up you’ll encounter a fork

in the river. The easterly branch of the fork goes north to Dover, where there is good gunkholing and anchoring as well as Georges Marina, which has a pump-out service. Turning west at the fork in the river, where Little Bay begins, will bring you to Great Bay Marine, offering full services, including transient moorings, slips, haul-out, fuel (gas & diesel) showers, pump-out and repairs. Access is restricted, however by the span of the 52-foothigh (at mean low water) General Sullivan Bridge. A short distance past the marina the bay takes a southerly turn to reveal a mooring field to the west that is also an excellent anchorage with a mud bottom. Continuing south will bring you to the more expansive Great Bay with a shallow, sandy bottom that only permits vessels of very low draft to enter. The advantage of this is an outgoing tide that, following a hot summer afternoon, can produce water temperatures for swimming that exceed 70 degrees. If you decide to remain below the bridges, in Portsmouth, groceries, ice and other amenities are available by stopping at the dock in Pepperrell Cove. For a longer stay and greater variety there are slips at Prescott Park with occasional openings for overnight. A mobile pumpout is also available by calling 603-670-5130 or hailing them on Channel 9. Between Great Bay and Portsmouth Harbor there is plenty to see and do, whether gunkholing, exploring by dinghy or sampling a seafood chowder between strolling through the various shops in Strawbery Banke. Stephen Dupuis Pembroke, N.H. Editor’s note: So many readers correctly identified the July Mystery Harbor that we are unable to publish all of them. But fear not; we’ll try to run the most informative ones remaining in a later issue.

Perspectives Dream, do, detach ears ago, I was asked by Points East to lead their Massachusetts-toMaine Flotilla. This particular flotilla was a first for Points East and a first for me as a flotilla leader. Though I tried hard, I don’t think I was cut out for it. As a cruiser, I’m a pragmatist. When I sail to Maine, I have learned to leave my expectations ashore. That philosophy should have been part of my talk during the pre-departure meeting I led for the dozen or so captains and their crews. Instead, I set everyone up for expectations: This harbor is lovely, with enchanting moon rises over the breakwater; there’s a charming lobster shack on the wharf in this cove; it’s called “Downeast” because of the lovely downwind sail that gets you there. There were a num-

Y

ber of folks in the group who had never sailed to Maine. They’d read the glossy Hinckley charter brochures, Maine coast magazines, and cruising guides. They, too, had their dreams and expectations. William James, the 19th-century philosopher-psychologist, promoted his passionate beliefs in a school of thought called Pragmatism. The world already exists when we are born, he argued, so accept it and work to create your own inner reality to find happiness. Dr. James believed that personal happiness hinges on a practicality: if your reality lives up to your expectations, you’re happy. If it doesn’t, you’re depressed. “Dreams and expectations are two very different things,” writes Sarah Breathnach in her book “Simple

And finally, in the midst of a thunderstorm in Penobscot Bay, I turned around to stay alongside a couple I knew would be nervous alone in the storm until we made harbor. We all felt good about it. Abundance.” “The passionate pursuit of dreams sets your soul soaring; expectations that measure the dream’s success tie stones around your soul.” We should relinquish our expectations to live a joyous and adventurous life, she says. So back to the Flotilla. We left. We had some blinding rain. We had thick black dungeon fog. We had some headwinds. We had a few breakdowns. This is all the stuff I should have talked about in my pre-departure meeting to tone down all the positive expectations. But then again, maybe all 12 boats would not have set out at all! But here’s what did happen. We found joy and success in many ways that were not expected – things that were not in the dream. In the midst of a thick fog, we all gathered outside the tiny unmarked entrance to Stage Harbor and slid through one by one, in a line. Inside, we found a silent, tranquil world and cozy place to celebrate our adventurous entrance; fog-lifted voices joked and laughed during and after we set our anchors. There was talk of the excitement of first hearing and then finding a bell buoy in the fog, and of fog-gen-

erated mirages (someone thought they saw a house two miles out at sea). Later in the trip, when the anchor windlass of a large trawler in the group broke, we pitched in to help the owner get his very heavy plow anchor and chain up, feeling the good will that comes from pulling together. When we got to Tenants Harbor days later, and there weren’t the expected individual moorings we’d promised, the fun of rafting up entered the picture. People and boats bonded; more friendships developed. And finally, in the midst of a thunderstorm in Penobscot Bay, I turned around to stay alongside a couple I knew would be nervous alone in the storm until we made harbor. We all felt good about it. That evening, the laughter and stories of the day flowed out of everyone as we ate a lobster dinner ashore. Cruising is not predictable. Then again, life is not predictable. But it’s in that unpredictability that lies life’s essence. I remember, years ago, on Day three of a two-week cruise to Maine, the transmission on Elsa broke. “Looks like your vacation’s over,” someone from the boatyard said, shaking his head. “Not so fast,” I

“And you call that a vacation?” my wife said later. “Why do you do such stressful things?” “I didn’t do anything,” I responded. “And stressful?

replied. I knew I had a spare transmission in the garage back home in Marblehead. Why walk away from this, I thought; this is another reality. This is an opportunity, a challenge and a learning experience. And two days later, I was at sea again, having hitched a ride to Marblehead to get the transmission, returned with a borrowed car, removed the engine with a boatyard worker, switched transmissions, reinstalled the engine, and (with fingers crossed), fired it up and headed off. “And you call that a vacation?” my wife said later. “Why do you do such stressful things?” “I didn’t do anything,” I responded. “And stressful?

As a young boy, rounding a bend in a remote Maine cove, Dave Roper stumbled upon two mermaids. No one believed him then. No one believes him now. But he kept watching and wondering: What is imagined and what is real? And while he watched and wondered during 50 years of waterborne life – as a boy, a teen, an adult, a father – what he pulled from the sea was not another mermaid, but the mystery, possibility, romance, joy, fear, and uncertainty that mermaids represent. Based on real experiences, these 33 stories take you, the reader, on that journey.

Paying forward ug. 26, 2009, was Jim’s and my 48th wedding anniversary, and nowhere, in our opinion, was there a more perfect spot on the Maine coast to celebrate it than Harbor Island in Muscongus Bay. We can usually sail there in a bit over an hour, as our summer home and mooring are in Friendship. While I packed a lunch (including biscuits for our sailing Lab, Kate) Jim readied our 28-foot Pearson Triton, Caledonian, and we got under way about 10 a.m. There was a bit more wind coming straight at us than we might have wished, so instead of tacking our guts out trying to get to Harbor Island, we opted for the “iron sail” and used the motor – not our preferred way of boating, but the point was to get there. We did, and found the harbor almost completely deserted, which was unusual, as this is a popular destination for both local and visiting boaters. Dropping anchor, we first had lunch and then rowed ashore to give Kate her usual workout on the beach and some of the beautiful trails. This time she got so enthusiastic about exploring that she got separated from us. I stayed on the trail while Jim tracked her down, but the shrubs

A

on the island were so dense that we could not reconvene until he had done some rock clambering and bushwhacking, resulting in a scraped ankle and scratched legs. Kate’s parents were not pleased with her. She, on the other hand, was delighted to see us. We called her an absolute ditz and headed for Caledonian, noting that while we were ashore about three other sailboats had moored in the sheltered waters of the harbor. We motored slowly out, exchanging waves with the other boaters, who also seemed to be on their lunch breaks, then hoisted sail, anticipating a number of exhilarating broad reaches on the way home. In the middle of the narrow Black Island passage, we stopped dead in the water, having obviously snagged a lobster pot. This was the third time this had happened to us that season, and we were mystified why this was so, as Caledonian has a full keel and Jim had had a metal skeg attached to it to block the one vulnerable slot between keel and rudder. We are careful about lobster pots, but even if we sail over one, the line generally pops out from under our keel with no harm done. That

said, there we were, broadside to the wind, and stuck, with an incoming tide and a building sea. First things first: Drop the sails. Jim tried to motor in reverse to dislodge the line, but no go. We were also worried lest the pot warp get tangled in the prop blades. Jim got into our dinghy with the boathook to try to dislodge the line, but with the tide coming in there was too much tension for him to get the necessary slack to free us. Two lobsterboats were working near us, but too far away to hail. After about 15 minutes of trying to free Caledonian, I noticed that two of the boats we had greeted were also leaving Harbor Island, and, seeing us immobile with sails in a heap on the deck, would surely come to our aid. We shouted and waved to them – and they passed us by. I was partly flabbergasted and partly outraged, as our experience has been that people on the sea come to the aid of others in trouble. We certainly always had, and had also received help from others. Not this time. A third sailboat went through the passage with the same result. Jim changed into his bathing suit and got out goggles and knife, preparing to dive and cut the line. We live in a lobstering port, have fishermen friends, and know what their gear costs, so this is the last resort, but with no help in sight, it seemed the only thing to do. My skipper is now 72, though, and I was getting worried about

his making like Jacques Cousteau. At that point another lobsterboat appeared, and this one, to our great relief, headed determinedly for us. Her white bow bore the name Debbie Jean, and she was from Friendship. The skipper, who looked strong as a bear, had a blond young woman sterning. “Looks like you could use some help,” the skipper said. We allowed as how we surely could. “Hand me a bow line and let me spin you around,” he suggested. With much churning water he did just that, but we were still stuck. I figured at that point that we had better get acquainted with our Good Samaritan, so we introduced ourselves to him. “I’m Marty Benner, and this is my daughter Kasey,” the skipper said. Kasey looked to be about 16 and obviously knew her way around a boat. Marty took his gaff, hooked the offending line over his power winch, and turned it on. Not one but two nearby lobster buoys jiggled in the water. “Looks like you got a two-fer,” Marty observed. “That one over there belongs to my cousin. Well, we’re going to have to cut the lines, but let’s do it the right way.” The winch whined as he pulled up the traps and put them on his deck. With a sharp knife he severed the tangled pot warp, and Caledonian immediately floated free. Gaffing the buoys, he put them on his deck as well. “This way no one loses any gear,” he smiled. I was

still glad that it was Marty who had cut the lines and not we. After all, we’re summer people and know the rules. Jim and I were limp with relief and very grateful to the Benners. “What can we do for you, Marty, for helping us out?” I called to him. “What you can do for me,” he said, “is that the next time you see someone in trouble on the sea, you go and help them out.” We promised to do so. Debbie Jean pulled away and we waved to Marty and Kasey as they got back to work. “Wow,” I said, equally in awe of his kindness and his seamanship. We told the story of our rescue to a number of people, including our 93-year-old friend Marguerite Sylvester. She was originally “from away,” too, but had lived in Friendship for over seventy years and was a lobsterman’s widow. She knew Marty and said that he was a good man. “He was paying forward in what he asked of you,” she observed, and then, smiling, added, “You’ll

never forget this anniversary, will you?” I owned that we would surely not. *** I sent this story to Points East at the end of that summer, and editor Nim Marsh said he would use it sometime in the future, which happened to be August of 2011. He asked us to get him a photo of the Debbie Jean with Marty and Kasey aboard, which we were able to set up a few days ago. When Marty expressed a wish to have the pictures, we used his wife Debbie’s e-mail address to send them over to him. It was nice to renew contact with the Benners. A few days later Jim and I got home about 7 p.m., and I happened to glance out of our front window, which overlooks Friendship Harbor. “What on earth is that green lobsterboat doing out there by the day beacon?” I said. “That’s a terrible place to anchor – it’s right on top of some serious rocks. Thank God it’s high tide.”

“I think it’s dragging its mooring chain,” Jim said, “and if it keeps on going in this direction it might go on the rocks at Ram Island. I’d better call the harbormaster.” Fifteen minutes later a large Whaler churned out of the harbor and up to the boat, somewhat ironically named Almost There. Two men clambered aboard, hauled up the parted chain, started the motor, and headed back down the harbor. We were very relieved. “How she ever threaded her way through the lobster fleet without banging into someone is a miracle,” Jim observed, “especially with this wind honking out of the harbor.” “I guess we did what Marty asked of us two years ago, didn’t we?” I said. “I was thinking the same thing,” Jim replied. But the story is not over yet. The next morning we received an email from Debbie Benner that really rocked us back on our heels: “Thanks so much for the pictures, but more importantly, thanks so much for spotting our son’s boat drifting last night. Marty and Marcus wanted to call and thank you last night, but we had a houseful of people here for Kasey’s graduation party … However, I’m sure you’ll be hearing from them shortly. God works in mysterious ways: How appropriate that you be the ones to save us!” As Marty observed later on on the phone, “What goes around comes around.” The wise mother of a friend once put it like this: “Cast your bread upon the waters and hope it comes up sandwiches.” This time it surely did. Nina Scott chairs the Amherst College Spanish Department. In the summers, she and Jim still sail Caledonian, their venerable Pearson Triton in lobster-pot-filled Muscongus Bay. About these wondrous happenstances, she says, “I feel as though I am just the scribe, but the real author is life itself.” editor@pointseast.com

The passing of Amazing Grace very so often you have the perfect thing – car, house, boat, whatever – for your time or place in life. Amazing Grace was that perfect boat for my wife, Susan, and me from 1999 to 2003. We were empty nesters, generally, and the grandkids were too small to do much sailing, so a Bristol 35.5 centerboard boat was perfect for a husband and wife but a little snug for a second couple on extended cruises. You could do it, though, and we did. We had gone Downeast twice, plus sailed extensively along the southern New England coast during the four years with Amazing Grace, and had grown very fond of her. She did well in light air but was solid in a blow. Her motion in a seaway had the feel of a much bigger boat,

and at 16,000 pounds displacement, she was no lightweight. A draft of less than four feet gave us access to wherever we wished to go, and the Ted Hood design and Bristol quality gave us a boat of which we could be proud. She was unusual with her bronze trim package and high toerail. However, as retirement neared and we spent more and more time afloat, we began to see the need for a little more space and began to shop around. During August 2003, I came across the next “perfect” boat (aren’t they all?). This was an Able 42 loaded with recent upgrades. We put Amazing Grace on the market with mixed emotions and much soul searching, and I began to work on the classic boattransition conundrum. The last thing I wanted was to be paying for a personal fleet of boats in my homeport of Stonington, Conn. My philosophy has been one home, one boat. As we continued the purchasing process of negotiation, survey, sea trials, etc., on Golden Mean, our future Able, we also were pleased to have several interested potential buyers for Amazing Grace. October found us with a boat closing in the middle of the month on the Able and a very interested party and close to a sale price on Amazing Grace. In fact, it began to look as though we may have a perfect match of purchase and sale within a few weeks of each other. Dawn of Wednesday, Oct. 15, 2003: a busy few days to come with a closing on Golden Mean on Friday, and my son Tom, his fiancée, Nina, and I planning to deliver her to Stonington on that Saturday. The wind was up on Wednesday; a ferryboat crashed into the dock in Manhattan. My phone rang at about 8:30 a.m. in my office, and the caller was the yard manager from my boatyard. “Ken, this is Dann…some bad news, I’m afraid. Amazing Grace broke her mooring pennants, was blown to the head of

the harbor onto the rocks, and sank. She was holed and filled to the bunks.” This can’t be possible, I thought. I’m going to wake up and find that I had a bad dream. But I didn’t wake up, and it wasn’t a dream. In fact, things got a little worse a few hours later when company security called to say that someone ran into my car in the company garage. OK, what would be the third shoe to drop? The yard did everything they could as soon as they discovered Amazing Grace. They hauled her, pumped her out, pickled the engine, unloaded all the wet gear. Bristol hulls are made in two halves and joined along the centerline. She had opened up several inches at

the bow, below the waterline, from pounding on the rocks. The potential buyers were notified, and the insurance company requested a survey. Amazing Grace was determined to be a total loss. In the mean time, the closing proceeded on Golden Mean, and we delivered her up the sound to Stonington on the weekend. So there I sat, one boat on the hard, a loss, and another waiting to go into storage. The insurance company assured me that I would be kept whole for the insured hull value, which was close to the sale price I had expected. Getting there would not be straightforward, however. I was asked to contact a website salvage-auction company, who would

Whatever the final price was, the insurance company would make up the difference to the insured value and that would resolve the settlement. It would have been a fascinating process to watch if it hadn’t been my boat: Almost no action until a few hours before the deadline, and then a flurry of bids ending with a sale price of about one-third the insured value. There was still a closing to be arranged to complete the sale, and this was more complicated than foreseen due to the geography of a salvage company in Florida, insurance company in South Carolina, buyer in New Hampshire, seller in New Jersey, and boat in Connecticut. However, the transaction was complete by the first of the year. Once the dust had settled, I began to reflect on the loss of my beautiful Amazing Grace. Why her in that harbor on that day? She was one of only two boats that had broken loose in a mooring field of 100. The wind was up for about a day, gusting to 45 knots, and her mooring location let a two- to three-foot harbor wave pound at her, which hardly seemed enough to break

her free. Chafing gear was still in place on the pennants. Inspection of the broken pennants indicated shock loads more than chafe. No quick answers came to mind, but the question hung in the back of my mind for months. Was it the design of her cleats or the location of her mooring? Was she hit by a fishing boat that had also come adrift? Then I thought back to a summer day when I was returning to the mooring after a day of sailing. I picked up the first line and secured it to the boat. I snagged the second pennant, but it was hung up on something and I couldn’t bring it aboard. I tossed it back, tried again, and it came up with no problem. I never gave it a second thought, but in retrospect perhaps I should have. The area we were moored in was about six or seven feet deep at low tide. The mooring pennants were about eight feet long with three-foot lines to floats tied to the eyes. This permitted the looped pennant to brush the bottom of the harbor at low tide where it fouled on something, but what? With several years of hindsight, I believe the “what” was the shank of the mushroom mooring that protruded from the bottom of the harbor. This shank could have fouled the chain of the mooring during tide and wind shifts, causing Amazing Grace to ride up close to the mooring on short scope rather than sitting back at the full length of the chain. When waves began to pound into the harbor, I deduced, she just sat and pounded on short scope rather than easing up and down at the end of her normal scope. Ken just returned from a doublehanded delivery from Bermuda to Newport and will be on the water with wife Susan and good friends of the Stonington Cruising Club, of which he is a founding member.

How Safe Is The Air You Breathe At Sea? Readers of Points East are serious boaters. But are you as serious about the quality of air on your vessels as you are the maintenance? With over 19 years invested in indoor air quality research and improvement, the Kanberra Group has been working closely with various areas of the marine industry to better understand the needs of boat owners, yacht captains and crews and provide detailed programmatic solutions to enhance marine experience and vessel maintenance. 2010 saw significant excitement build around our flagship product, Kanberra Gel, and the many boaters who realized the benefits. Already a staple in the Mega-yacht industry, Kanberra Gel has been making waves in many marine-related areas, as well as RV and automotive storage, pet stores, hardware stores and pharmacies, including many locations throughout New England. A semi-solid, biodegradable gel composition made with pharmaceuticalgrade Australian Tea Tree Oil, Kanberra Gel dissipates into the air to break down mildew, molds, and viruses at the molecular level. Tea Tree Oil is known around the globe as a natural antiseptic most commonly used topically. Thanks to the for-

mula in Kanberra Gel, those same antiseptic and antifungal properties can now be realized though an airborne release. This completely natural gel disperses droplets of oil which are then circulated around the vessel. There are no synthetic perfumes or chlorine bleach, just clean air, the way nature intended. We’ve been told by industry experts, very few times before has one product made such an immediate and significant impact on the marine industry. It’s a classic example of problem/solution. Only this time, the solution is so unique, and it simply works. As of the date of this publication, Kanberra Gel can be found in over 350 distributors, retailers, marinas, yacht yards and ports-of-call stretching from New England to San Diego, Ft. Lauderdale to Seattle, Detroit to Minneapolis, across the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Europe. More specifically, for boaters in the New England area we can be found in such locations as Brewer Yacht Yards, Newport Shipyard or Fay’s Boat Yard on Lake Winnipesaukee. Look for it at Noank Shipyard, Marblehead Marine or Kingman Yacht Center in Cataumet, MA. Depending on your journeys ask for it by name at Boothbay Region Boatyard, Robinhood Marine Center, Lyman-Morse Boatbuilders or the John Williams Boat Company in picturesque Mt. Desert Island, ME. For a complete list of locations visit www.KanberraGel.com.

Problem:

Solution: Kanberra Gel Natural Air Purifier • Protects against mold and mildew damage during storage • No chemicals, all natural – safe around kids and pets • Dissipates into air to neutralize airborne odors and impurities – keeps cabin fresh Proud sponsor of • Easy to use – no mess, no plugs, no wires, no tearing of bags • 24/7 protection, 365 days a year • Great for home, office, car, gym bag & more

up or auxiliary sailing rigs to supplement their powerful engines. These elegant, 280-foot ships were notable for both speed and cargo-carrying capacity, providing service between New York and Liverpool in the 1850s. In 1936, legislation established the U.S. Maritime Commission and empowered the U.S. Merchant Marine to serve as a naval auxiliary unit. Shortly before America’s entry into World War II, the commission ordered production of plain but sturdy cargo vessels called Liberty ships, to be manned by members of the U.S. Merchant Marine. Over the next four years, the United States produced more than 2,700 Liberty ships. They served in all theaters of war and sustained the Allied forces with a steady supply of food and war material. Without the container ship, the global economy as we know it would be impossible. These ships carry virtually all the products and materials that end up in our local stores. “In 2006 alone,” according to the Smithsonian Institution, “about 18 million containers stuffed with cargoes of all sorts were sent on more than 200 million trips by sea, rail, and road to places around the world.” Container ships were pioneered in the 1950s by Malcom McLean, a North Carolina trucking operator, whose idea was to eliminate multiple handling costs by standardizing the container shape so that it could be easily moved between truck, rail, and ship.

Newport International Boat Show is Sept. 15-18 The 41st Annual Newport International Boat Show is scheduled for Sept. 15-18 on the waterfront of Newport, R.I. This show, one of the four largest in-water boat shows in the country, will fill 13 acres along America’s Cup Avenue with both power and sail boats, ranging in size from 16 to 100 feet, plus kayaks, inflatables, services, equipment and accessories of all types. Some 750 exhibitors with over 600 boats are expected to participate. Look for the red and blue balloons signifying a new product/boat throughout the show. This year’s charitable partner is Sail for Pride, established after the 9/11 attacks by a group of sailors led by Scott Murray, Mick Harvey and Brad Read to raise money to support the victims and their families. Over the past nine years they have continued to raise money under the name “Sail for Hope” to reflect the RI state motto. From 2002 on, the funds were directed to support local Rhode Island charities. This year, the 10th anniversary of 9/11, the name “Sail For Pride” will be restored. FMI: www.newportboatshow.com.

Briefly 2010 boating deaths at record low The U.S. Coast Guard released its official 2010 Recreational Boating Statistics in June, and total fatalities fell to 672, the lowest number on record. Coast Guard officials, while heartened by the drop, were quick to caution that this number remains unacceptably high. They noted that the 2010 total was only slightly lower than the 676 deaths in 2004, the previous record low, but 26 deaths lower than the average number of fatalities for the last 10 years. Total reported accidents were 4,604 in 2010, down from 4,730 in 2009, while injuries totaled 3,153, down from 3,358. Property damage was estimated at $35 million. Operator inattention, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed, and alcohol use rank as the top five primary contributing factors in accidents. Alcohol use is the leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents; it was listed as the leading factor in 19% of the deaths. FMI: www.uscgboating.org.

Plan B to The Grey Lady

When plans to sail to Nantucket were stymied by a hull repair, friends signed us on to cruise to the historic island aboard their Alden 45 Selkie. Story and photos By Ken Packie For Points East he 2010 summer boating season was shaping up as a real disappointment for Susan and me. We had moved Golden Mean to Maine in 2009, but we were not able to use her as much as we had hoped. We decided to bring her down to Narraganset Bay for 2010 and knock two or more hours off our commute from New Jersey. We were all set with a mooring in Dutch Harbor, in Jamestown, and the promise of a great boating season. Under new management, Dutch Harbor Boatyard has upgraded its facility, and a nice snack bar has been added. However, just prior to spring commissioning, we discovered a damp spot in the balsa-cored hull, which we decided to repair right away, so our season was compromised. We have been members of Stonington (Conn.) Cruising Club (SCC) since its founding, and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cruise was to be Nantucket and the Islands. Good friends Paul and Jean Cambridge took pity on our plight and invited us to sail for the week aboard Selkie, an Alden 45. After mulling the invitation over for about 30 seconds, we signed on as crew and the anticipation of a cruise to Nantucket was just the sailing fix we needed. The plan Paul proposed would consist of easy days along the south coast islands, ending with three days on Nantucket before two longer days heading back to Narraganset Bay. The outward leg also included a holdover in Vineyard Haven to meet other SCC members and enjoy a few meals

ashore. Vineyard Haven had just changed its liquor laws and now permits restaurants to serve wine and beer to patrons who are eating at the restaurant. We met with Selkie early Saturday morning, and all that was needed was a quick trip up the mast to check an instrument issue before an 1130 departure. Once clear of Beavertail, our course was set to carve around Brenton Reef and then on to Cuttyhunk. A nice day of sailing brought us in at 1530, and we grabbed the last mooring in the outer harbor . . . sweet. All hands took a swim in the brisk Buzzards Bay waters, and then we were joined by the crew of Bolero for cocktails before dinner. Sunday morning would be a sail through Quicks Hole, between Pasque and Nashawena islands, and then over to Menemsha, on the Vineyard, to anchor for the evening. This is a nice anchorage when winds are southerly, but a northerly wind means a move to Tarpaulin Cove. The quaint fishing docks in Menemsha provide some of the best

swordfish on the coast. A recent fire in the harbor destroyed several building, and a few boats, but fish are still available. We had a quiet evening and were joined by Charlie and Cathy Hodge on Surprise, members who have recently moved to Edgartown and who we planned to visit in a few days. Our daily swim was in a little warmer water than the previous evening. The next morning’s sail to Vineyard Haven was spectacular. A fair current and 15 to 20 knots of breeze pushed Selkie along at more than seven knots on a close reach up to West Chop, where we dropped sail and motored to a mooring Paul had reserved with Vineyard Haven Marina. Fifteen minutes later, a squally front caught us with 40-knot gusts and a deluge of rain that lasted an hour. Naturally a swim was called for, and the water was even warmer. Reservations had been made at the Saltwater Café for dinner. This was for us a new restaurant, and it

Clockwise from above: Nantucket Moorings will pay you a visit and provide all the details needed for a relaxed stay. The island is a magnet for photographers and painters. Friendship sloop Endeavor passes Brant Point as she returns from a charter. The boat basin includes shops and other facilities. The summer scene at the ferry dock is a great people-watching situation.

The harbor is focused on the needs of the boater. You can usually find a spot on the large dinghy dock on the Town Pier. Showers, toilets and dumpsters are all central to this dock, which is a short walk from the center of town. Launch service, at $5 a person each way, is convenient and prompt. This will drop you off at the ferry slips in the center of town and runs until past midnight. The crew of Selkie had a few things that needed to be accomplished ashore, and with the harbor somewhat rough, it was decided to take the launch rather than ending up with a bunch of wet bottoms from a dinghy ride. We were looking forward to a nice dinner ashore the following evening. Since the restaurant we had planned on, Cioppinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, was under new management, there were a half-dozen others we thought we would check out. Our list included Ships Inn, Pearl, and Dune (the restaurant that replaced Cioppinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s). Eventually, we chose Dune. I wanted to get a Beach Pass T-shirt since my old one was from 2004 and failing fast. The last errand was a quick food shop before we headed back out to Selkie. 38 Points East August 2011

The food market is on the square, next to the main wharf in town. After a few hours ashore and a stop at the Ropewalk for a drink, we headed back to Selkie for dinner on board and then some bridge. The evening was punctuated with a squall and a rainstorm that chased us out of the cockpit for the card game, and it was past midnight by the time we turned in. Day 2 dawned fresh and clear, the storm having ushered in a front that brought strong breezes with it. Paul had several boat jobs to tend to, the girls were headed to the shops, and I wanted to walk the town, camera in hand and perhaps stop at the Whaling Museum. We scattered like a bunch of flying fish with a plan to rendezvous back at the Tavern for lunch. We took the Nantucket Regional Transit Authority shuttle out to Surfside for a walk on the beach before rejoining Paul aboard Selkie. A 10-minute ride took us to Surfside, and this spot was beautiful. The strong southwest wind provided lots of surf for bathers to enjoy. Restrooms and a lunch counter plus parking were convenient at the beach enNANTUCKET, continued on Page 48 editor@pointseast.com

NANTUCKET, continued from Page 38 trance. The bus schedule provided frequent drop offs and returns. Other areas of interest for visiting boaters are Siasconset at the east end of the Island, Madaket at the west end, and Tom Nevers on the Atlantic side. You can also arrange a seal-watching trip with Nantucket Adventures (www.nantucketadventures.com) or a sail on a traditional boat such as Endeavor (http://endeavorsailing.com). This Friendship sloop has a slip across from the ferry dock and can be chartered for short day trips. We did the half-day seal watch several years ago and found it very entertaining. A large colony of gray seals is located on the small sand spits to the west of Nantucket, and the shoal-draft skiffs will take you to see seals up close. Sconset, as it is called, is an old vacation community dating back to the 1800s, and it’s composed of small Victorian homes well worth biking to. A general store, restrooms and a restaurant are all located adjacent to the predominantly residential area. Nantucket has an excellent and inexpensive transit system that provides service to most parts of the island. Taxis and an excellent bike-path network are the other alternative. Several bike rentals are available close to the ferry terminal, and ferry service back to the mainland is frequent.

My wanderings took me first to Brant Point, in the village of Nantucket, where a bus full of kids from the local Boys and Girls Club were on a fishing outing and actually catching fish. From there, I looped back through lovely residential areas of quaint homes lovely gardens and streets built of ballast stones and dappled in sunlight. Nantucket is a mecca for artists of every medium. Susan, Jean and I met back near the Ferry terminal and had a bite to eat at the Tavern, located in that vicinity. We got back to Selkie in time for a swim in the warm waters of Nantucket Harbor and then a deck shower to freshen up before dinner at Dunes. A launch ride and a short walk got us to the restaurant at 6:45; our reservation was on the second floor in a semi-private room. The meal was excellent and the wait staff added a spark to the service. We were fortunate to have the room to ourselves since it became noisy when a second party arrived as we were leaving. The first floor or outdoor seating would be suggested. The weather for Day 3 was forecast to be unsettled as another front was expected. Susan and I decided to go ashore early and finish up some shopping in the morning and then meet Paul and Jean at Sushi by Yoshi for lunch. If you like sushi you will enjoy this little jewel, which is BYOB. With a liquor store two blocks away this is not a problem. The plan for dinner was to take the dinghy up the

harbor to one of many fine beaches and grill ashore. However, rain moved in during the afternoon so dinner and the card game of Golf was moved below. Squalls and thunder once again became the weather event of the night, with one powerful crash of lightning right on top of us. We planned to depart at about 1000 the next morning and wanted to fuel first, so we expected to be up early. Departure day morning broke with a light fog that lingered, with light winds out of the west. It appeared that motoring would be in order, but a favorable current would help us along to Cuttyhunk. Before departure, we spotted part of a sailboat mast, canted 45 degrees, protruding above the surface. Apparently the powerful strike of the night before knocked a hole in, or seacocks off, the hull of the vessel. The run to Cuttyhunk was uneventful but quick considering the distance we had to cover. The favorable current for part of Nantucket Sound and all of Vineyard Sound was a great assistance and continued all the way through Quicks Hole. We arrived too late to get a mooring in the outer harbor so we anchored on the north side of the channel into the inner harbor. We had hoped to get fresh fish from the Raw Bar but none was to be had. Within an hour of our arrival, the first of several squalls hit us and we dragged. Hauling in the anchor revealed a big hunk of grass, not unusual for this anchorage. Paul and Jean maneuvered Selkie into another spot and reset the hook. A second squall at about 0100 woke us as the boat veered sharply under the initial blast and then danced but stayed put. Others were not as lucky: About a half-dozen boats started to re-anchor across the harbor. Paul planned an 0930 departure to arrive back at Narraganset Bay with time left to put Selkie away properly. The forecast was promising for a good sail, with southwest winds building to 20 knots in the afternoon. A sloppy motorsail in light northwesterlies slowly improved as we cleared Buzzards Bay and its choppy sea conditions, and once past Buzzards Bay Tower life improved. By noon we were racing closereaching toward Beavertail and were able to carry our point of sail right up West Passage at six knots or better. What a perfect ending to a great week on the water, visiting an old friend, Nantucket. The author recently sold his Able 42, Golden Mean, but continues an active sailing agenda courtesy of many good friends who gladly share their boating time. “Once you develop a network of likeminded boaters, that common interest is all that is necessary to hold you together,” he says. Ken just returned from a doublehanded delivery from Bermuda to Newport and will be on the water with wife Susan and good friends of the SCC. www.pointseast.com

Running the coast with Captain Bill

The trip ahead was roughly 340 miles. The Captain planned to do it in two days, stopping the first night, then flooring it to Ocean City.

Or Capt. Mike’s excellent motorboat adventure, being a delivery of revelations and epiphanies from Newport to Ocean City with a twin-screw maestro. By Capt. Mike Martel For Points East begin by briefly saying that I have known a lot of fellows who can handle a motorboat, but there’s no one quite like Capt. Bill Madison. Capt. Bill can move a twin-screw boat an inch or so at a time – I’m not kidding— no matter what the prevailing wind and current are doing. He can bring a 30-foot heavy sport fisherman up

against a fuel dock, walking it sideways like a swimming crab, only even more gracefully than a crab, and laying it up against the piling so gently that if the rubrail had been lined with fresh eggs, none would break. This may seem an exaggeration but I swear it’s not. I had been invited by Capt. Bill to serve as mate on board a powerboat delivery from Rhode Island to Ocean City, Md. I was excited by the prospect of taking a relatively fast boat on a delivery trip, rather than a slow sailboat, which had been the type of delivery I

was used to doing. The Captain, a seasoned skipper, wrinkled his nose and remarked gruffly, “I don’t do blow-boats anymore. Not unless it’s really something special.” The trip ahead was roughly 340 miles. The Captain planned to do it in two days, stopping the first night. I had expected him to take the boat on the outside and run nonstop the projected 20 hours. I learned, once we got going, that this was not possible since the boat would require refueling well before that. Our boat was a relatively latemodel 30-foot Luhrs sportfisherman, with twin turbocharged Yanmar diesels. A 30-footer is not considered a large sportfisherman by any standard; in fact, it is considered a borderline “pocket” sportfisherman. Still, it had a tuna tower, outriggers, and looked the part. It was in fine condition, overall, and a couple of days before departure, we brought her over to the fuel dock and pumped 300 gallons of diesel into her, topping off her tank. This would get us as far as Sandy Hook, N.J., with little to spare, which surprised me a little, since I would have expected better mileage out of a boat that size, and diesel-powered at that. Before we set out, however, we noted one problem –

a leak in the pressurized-water line under the galley sink. We weren’t equipped to repair it, so there would be no pressurized fresh water during the trip and, thus, no on-board showers. We would drink bottled water and have to wait to shower when we reached our destination. For food, we had each brought sandwiches, crackers, snack bars, and such. “Don’t worry” Capt. Bill said. “We’ll have the chance to eat civilized.” I didn’t mind the idea of being a powerboat sailor for a couple of days, not one bit; in fact, I welcomed the change. And, in fact, my first big boat years ago had been a powerboat, a vintage 1952 twin-screw, 33-foot Richardson sedan cruiser. It usually ran at eight knots because, if I had pushed her any faster, something might, and usually did, break. She was gasoline-fueled, and her original flathead Chrysler Crown engines and Zenith carburetors had been designed back in the days when gasoline prices had been something on the order of 10 cents a gallon, so it was in the best interests of my wallet to push her round bilge along at no greater than hull speed. There were no trim tabs, and although she was capable of

I have dreams of long cruises around the Caribbean and other areas of the world. I feel cruising is the ideal way to travel, bringing your home with you when you travel with access to most areas of the world. The look I get from my wife, Sylvia, when I share these ideas makes it achingly clear she does not share these dreams and believes her husband may be insane. At some point, she suggested a good way to entice her might be a crewed charter. I finally listened to her and booked a weekend Maine windjammer cruise.

HIS STORY, continued on next page 54 Points East August 2011

For Points East o say that sailing is Tim’s passion is an understatement. Tim has an unquenchable desire to be on the sea. I, on the other hand, love the sea from the beach. Tim has this crazy notion to spend our retirement years exploring on the water. I have a very different view of retirement, but because I don’t have a clear vision of what life on the water would be like, we made a compromise and booked this windjammer cruise. It was a struggle to get the right weekend. I am a mother of two active teenagers, and I thoroughly enjoy being a part of the extracurricular activities. My favorite is Little League. To miss a Little League game is sheer torture for me. Well, needless to say, the

HER STORY, continued on Page 86 editor@pointseast.com


HIS STORY, continued from previous page travel it once was. Finding a weekend when weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d miss the least activities was an important PR move. Even with this careful consideration, we would miss one of our sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s All Star games. Little League is one of my wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite summer events, and missing this game would be difficult for Sylvia since this would be my sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last year in Little League. To give an idea of how much she enjoys it, she has jokingly suggested having another child so she could enjoy Little League longer. The vessel I chose was the Grace Bailey, one of the many beautiful boats in the Maine windjammer fleet. The 123-foot Grace Bailey, out of Camden, was built in 1882 and was fully restored in 1990. This is the same ship that sailed to the West Indies in the fruit trade and carried granite to New York City to help build Grand Central Station. My wife and I were apprehensive about the trip due to weather. June in the Northeast had been one long spell of rain, and the forecast was not calling for our chosen weekend to be dry. A last-minute rain-gear purchase for Sylvia was felt to be an important addition to our gear. A wet wife is not a happy wife. We were scheduled to board 10 a.m. Friday, so were able to leave in the morning for the two-hour drive up from Portland. We all boarded the yawl-boat in peasoup fog and slowly motored to the Bailey, which was

This was going to be a weekend when we would see the many faces of the famous Penobscot Bay fog. Once aboard, we were shown our cabin, which was not much larger than the head on my 29-foot Ericson. The cabin contained a double bed and a roughly three-foot square to stand in while getting dressed. While it was small, it was comfortable and warm, and a good retreat from the damp weather. We did count ourselves lucky to have standing headroom. We toured some of the other cabins, which had no more than crawling space. Once our gear was stowed, we had the first of many excellent meals of clay-pot beans, ham, salad and brown bread. It was an incredibly comforting and satisfying meal in the damp and chilly air. Cooking was done on an antique wood stove, which also provided hot water for coffee, tea and showers. The meals the galley crew created were amazing, considering their stove generated so little heat control. We would often hear the galley crew singing beautiful sea chanteys while they pre-

chatter on the radio about a tanker somewhere in our path – no one knew quite where – so we’d delayed our departure until we were sure it had passed. The big canvas gaff-rigged sails were naturally raised by hand with a call of “all hands” calling everyone willing to pitch in, crew and passenger alike. The day was spent quietly sailing to Castine in conditions we would see all weekend: gray, light to no wind, cool and damp. We arrived in Castine Friday evening and tied up to

a dock near the Maine Maritime Academy. We had some time in town before dinner, so our Captain gave us a brief overview of the town and some history. The town had existed from before the Revolutionary War, and at the time was an important defensive post. The town is set on a hill that was the site of a fort used to defend the mouth of the Penobscot River, a vital access point to the interior of Maine. HIS STORY, continued on Page 78

Sailing season gets off to a wet start in Portland Rain showers and below-normal temperatures couldn’t keep more than 100 sailors from getting out on the water for the first major yacht race of the season on June 12, as the Centerboard Yacht Club hosted 20 boats for its regatta in the waters of Portland Harbor. Kaos, skippered by Scott Smithwick, took first place in Racing Class A. Don Logan’s Keemah won Racing 60 Points East August 2011

Class B, and Randy Rice’s Rita P emerged at the top of Cruising Class. Boats will continue to race most weekends through the summer in the Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Circuit; then many will sail a Fall Series over four weeks in September and October.

Northeasterners excelled in the New York Yacht Club’s 157th Annual Regatta in June 10-12. Ken Colburn’s (Dover, Mass.) Apparition won the 13-boat Swan 42 class seemingly with ease and a low point score of just 11 points over five races. “It was bloody hard work,” said Ken Read (Newport, R.I.), skipper of Puma Ocean Racing’s Volvo Open 70 Mar Mostro, which beat out Dan Meyers’ (Boston, Mass.) JV 66 Numbers in IRC 1 class, “but anytime you have good breeze and gnarly conditions you feel like you actually accomplished something.” Mike McCaffrey (Newport, R.I.) won all but one of the Hereshoff S class’s five races aboard Osprey. “After 20 years, you kind of get the hang of it,” he said, referring to the fact that he, like others in his class, lovingly restored this classic design that is 27½ feet, distinguished by a boom extending beyond the transom, and has 426 square feet of sail area. It is also the oldest one-design class still actively racing and sailing in its original boats. Sam Croll’s (Greenwich, Conn.) 8 meter Angelita, which won an Olympic Gold Medal in 1928, won all of its races in Classic class. Other 1st-place New Englanders, winning all but one of their races were Stephen Devoe’s (Jamestown, R.I.)

Newport sailor Andy Burton won the first five races in the J/80 class to take the regatta title.

Winners came from all over the world at the Bacardi Newport Sailing Week June 24-26, but New Englanders took home a lot of silverware. Among these, in the J/80 class, Newport sailor Andy Burton won the first five races to take the regatta title. Chris Bulger (Brookline, Mass.) was second with 11 points followed by Tim Pitts (Plymouth, Mass.) with 19. In the 10-strong Star class, Snipe World Champion Tomas Hornos (Marblehead, Mass.) took the regatta title. Paul Reilly (Chicago, Ill.) topped the 12-boat Audi Melges 20 fleet. Rob Wilber (Stony Creek, Conn.) was tied with Reilly on 16 points, but lost on the tiebreaker to finish 2nd overall. Winning the Viper 640 was Pieter Taselaar (Scarsdale, N.Y.).

Lilla smashes record in Marion-Bermuda The big story of this years Marion Bermuda Race was Lilla, a Briand 76 skippered by Simon DiPietro, which set the course record with an elapsed time of 68:58:45 and a corrected time of 71:48:26. The previous record was 72½ hours, set in 1989 by Warren Brown’s War Baby, a custom 61 S&S design. With a crew of 12, Lilla romped to the Onion Patch, making 10s and 11s consistently, with top speeds reaching 13.5. Boats from Mattapoisett and Marion came in behind Lilla: Pescatore, a Hinckley SW 59, skippered by George Tougas (with an elapsed time of 86:50:57; corrected time of 78:20:17) and Margalo, a Baltic 48 DP, with skipper Chip Johns (elapsed time of 87:43:42; corrected time of 78:46:48). Of the 50 boats that started, five retired early out of Buz-

zards Bay due to fatigue, injury or rigging failure (Alastor, Patchwork, Aries Dream, Truant and Hotspur II). Hotspur II rallied by fixing their rigging issues back in Marion and returning to the course after repairs the very same day to cruise to Bermuda. Lyra, Sparky and Honeymoon retired near the end of the race for lack of wind. For the complete story and full results, visit www.marionbermuda.com.

Mudhead benefit race going green The Mystic River Mudhead Racing Association, in West Mystic, Conn., registered its annual Mudhead Benefit Race on July 16 as a certified Clean Regatta with the nonprofit organization, Sailors for the Sea for the third consecutive year. By doing so, the Mudheads pledge their commitment to clean waters and shores, and vow to fulfill and encourage others to fulfill the goals and requirements set forth by Sailors for the Sea. These goals include disqualifying any boat that is observed discharging trash into the water, providing recycling containers on shore and encouraging their use (including a list of nontoxic cleaning products in each skipper’s packet), and keeping the shore clean of debris. Additionally, this year, they implemented a system to decrease the use of plastic water bottles. FMI: www.mudheads.org, www.sailorsforthesea.org.

Foundation. The Ideal 18’s are to be used for yacht club member programs and racing, and community learn-to-sail instructions for adults and Special Olympics. A key component to getting these boats and offering these programs is a very generous arrangement with Dodson Boatyard, which will be providing six moorings for the season with free launch service. The Ideal 18 is an 18-foot keel sloop with 168 square feet of sail, and displaces 1,200 pounds. It is easy to sail and get underway with roller-furling and a self-tending jib. FMI: www.shyc.us.

Three summer reads, biting, joyful and daunting Reviewed by Sandy Marsters For Points East

navigate Muscle Ridge Channel in a black fog with no fancy instruments. Dane doesn’t cut anyone any slack here, including himself. If we are honest, we will all see ourselves in the descriptions of a photo of his father “imitating a hard-bitten Mainer in the worst way (or playing one), grim jaw clamped on his cigarette in a preposterous pose of saltiness,” or of himself in another photo, exhibiting “that same studied fatigue (so contrived), as if sailing in Maine were the grimmest, most taxing thing the universe could assign, and you, so tough and salty, just endured it, telling the world to shut the hell up and wait its turn.” Then there are “. . . those gay, gay and preppy teenagers who grew into my uncles and led their eccentric lives there until their business failed and they shot themselves;” or the “bourgeois complacencies of my grandmother;” Linda Jane’s “stupidly enthusiastic dog;” even Peter Ralston’s iconic photo of sheep being shipped out to an island pasture takes it on the chin: “. . . a dory full of sheep, towed by a large green dragger, headed through the fog for Mr. Ralston to play Maine on Allen Island.” Truthfully, I’m not sure what Dane means about this “playing Maine” thing, other than that I’m guilty of it and so are you. I don’t think you’ll see yourself in the complex and intriguing character that is Dane. But you’ll see yourself frequently elsewhere in the book. It won’t necessarily be comfortable, but you will be rewarded with an entirely new perspective on love and loss and sailing and Maine.

Dogfish Memory By Joseph A. Dane, The Countryman Press 254 pp., $23.95.

“Dogfish Memory” is not the kind of sailing book I was looking for, but it was one, like Jonathan Raban’s “Passage to Juneau,” which I am glad I stumbled onto. It is not a book about cruising, or even about sailing, though those are its backdrops, as is the coast of Maine. Or maybe it’s a book about cruising and sailing, with life, and love, and loss as a backdrop. Lost loves. Dark waters. Lost lives. Pretensions. Nervous relationships with women and pathetic family members, and with a beautiful, gritty Maine that is not the Maine of the promotional posters or even of this magazine, not the Maine that tourists and summer people come to see and probably not one they would want to see. It is a Maine of “contrived romance,” contrived by cruisers, tourists, even retired fishermen. But you should see it the way author Joseph A. Dane sees it in this beautiful memoir, or something like a memoir, not the kind that traces a narrative of recovery from some childhood trauma, which publishers crave these days, but one without a pivotal moment. Instead, the story is told along a hopelessly knotted timeline on and off the boat, with and without the complex and challenging Linda Jane (one reviewer said he’d sail with Dane any day, but would never let him choose a girlfriend for him.) Here, real time and dream time and memory and imagination are hopelessly mixed up. Life is like the streets of Portland: “There is no pattern to the cobblestones.” Don’t try to follow the shifting time and geography of this book. You will get lost and frustrated as surely as you’ll become lost and frustrated trying to

timeless. “Narrow Waters” is a folksy publication, printed in a block handwriting-type font with illustrations by the author. It chronicles a trip down the Inland Waterway from Norfolk, Va., to the Dry Tortugas (the very westerly extent of the Florida Keys) and home via the Okeechobee Canal aboard the Sea Wind 30 Sea Wind. At every turn of this travelogue, the author and skipper/companion Stuart Hopkins choose the route less chosen, providing plenty of opportunities for adventure and solitude. If all these inlets and outlets haven’t silted up over the last decade, cruisers following Sea Wind’s winding route will find themselves in places seldom visited by the flotillas that make their way up or down the waterway every spring and fall. Readers will also learn a lot about the local flora and fauna as well as the hugely varied cultures encountered along the route. The fine illustrations will help identify the many birds and other wildlife seen along the way. If you are dreaming of taking this route one way or the other, or even if you just want to learn about it, this is a book worth finding and keeping aboard.

The Big Thirst By Charles Fishman; Free Press, 400 pp., $26.99.

cessity, practice all our boating on the water, it’s one boaters ought to read. Basically, it’s about water and how far behind we are in managing our water supplies, unless, surprisingly, we live in, of all places, Las Vegas, which is way ahead of the curve. Fishman ranges all over the world to show us how our relationship to water is changing but needs to change more quickly. You will learn a lot about water here. Did you know that on the day (or whatever) that Earth was created we already had all the water we’ll ever have (i.e., if we wreck it we’re stuck with it)? Or that although we are taught that the Earth is 75 percent water, actually the oceans cover 75 percent of the planet, but there really is relatively little water here. “Water isn’t becoming more scarce,” Fishman writes, “it’s simply disappearing from places where people have become accustomed to finding it,” which is to say along coasts where we fill our boats’ tanks with “fresh” water and load up with bottled water, and wash our boats with water that is much cleaner than what 1.1 billion of our fellow earthlings have access to. Good stuff for us all to think about. Sandy Marsters, Points East’s stellar reviewer, was a co-founder of the magazine with Bernie Wideman, and its first editor.

O’Donovan Dole builds 18-foot Hampton sloop O’Donovan Dole, in Searsport, Maine, has completed the construction of a 18-foot Hampton sloop, which the shop exhibited at June’s WoodenBoat Show in Mystic, Conn. Built of carvelplanked Atlantic cedar on a white oak backbone with steambent frames, the hull is fastened with bronze and caulked with the traditional cotton caulking. The sloop has a laid white-pine deck with choice of gaff or lug rig, both carrying Nat Wilson sails. LOA: 20’ 6”; LWL: 16’ 9”; Beam 6’; Draft: 1’ 9” board up, 3’ 2” down; Disp. 2,550 lbs.; SA: 170 sq. ft. The Hampton design was developed for the waters of the New England coast during the 19th and 20th centuries. Early models were lapstrake double-

enders with two masts and sprit rigs. Later versions had square sterns and were powered with inboard engines. Patrick Dole and John O’Donovan chose to build to a model created by Perry Sinnett, of Bailey Island, Maine, in 1902, modified somewhat for, they say, “longevity, ease of use, and comfort.” The lines for the hull were taken off a Hampton Sloop built by Sinnett for Dr. Franklin P. Luckey, to be used as a daysailer. Dr. Luckey’s boat, named Cuspidor, is now in the Mystic Seaport small-craft collection. FMI: www.odonovandole.com. The Hampton boats originally were designed for lobstering and fin fishing but are easily adapted for pleasure use.

FETCHING

ALONG/Da vid

David Buckman photo

To be singlehanding and alone in a place like Three Eagle Cove on Vinalhaven Island is a dramatic thing.

On singlehanding, character defects and wine see things differently when I’m singlehanding. It’s an intense way to cruise, and the wine lasts much longer. My enjoyment of solo sailing has practically nothing to do with the fact I’m a social defective, and practically all to do with the compelling drama of it. Even perfectly normal people relish it. As Mark Twain observed, “There are dammed few folks I’d go sailing with, and all of them have had the good sense not to ask me.” Actually, I made that up, but it sounds like something he might have said. Heading to sea on your own immediately eliminates the vexing problems of crew connections, defections, discontentment and turnovers. What could be worse than being confined to close quarters with a slug who doesn’t know his azimuth from his elbow and spends his days playing video games? Besides, the loo is all yours, and – did I mention – more wine for me. Even though one dockside sage at Stonington, Maine, told me that sailing alone was unnatural, solitude can be rich. Mostly we don’t cultivate it much, from a tender age being paired up, grouped and teamed. I must have been absent from school the day they taught “Getting Along In Groups.” Admittedly, setting off along the coast by myself takes some getting used to, but, it’s ME after all, and despite being an insufferable bore, my standards are low, and I enjoy my own company well enough. And when I come sailing out of the fog at some far Downeast port, what kind of a reception do I get? Better than I deserve usually, but often I sense some folks won-

dering in what ways I’m maladjusted, unstable and needy, or all of the above. Then there are those who find me “interesting,” and try to figure me out. Bless’em. I’d find myself “interesting” if I didn’t know better. Sooner or later, they ask why my crew quit, and where my wife is, if one will have me. And they look out to sea and get all philosophical and earnestly ask if I actually think that a bilge full of fine wine is better than the warmth of humankind? Singlehanders get the tough questions. It’s not a question of being better or worse. It’s about living vigorously. Sometimes there’s a sense of vulnerability to going solo, and you deal with it. The challenges are mostly things worth knowing. I worry more about things I don’t know, but not running out of wine. And how many times have I said, “I’m never doing this again?” Several. And do I stop? No, because it’s so damned profound and in your face. My natural inclination to be a slacker is blown out of the water, I’m wired, every decision counts, judgments are tested, my ego bruised, and my sensibilities (which I’ve been told are in desperate need of improvement) adjusted. David Buckman singlehands a month or more every summer, as well as cruising with his wife of 39 years, Leigh. He’s not above using this space, to shamelessly promote his book, “Bucking the Tide.” It’s about discovering the New England and Fundy coast in a wreck of a $400 sloop that leaked like a White House aide.

DELIVERY, continued from Page 51 real speed in short bursts, I rarely ever ran her hard. Now, under way, I was learning a few things about trying to average 20 knots in choppy seas, and it decidedly did not feel much like sailing. The first thing I noted, from a purely fluid-dynamics perspective, is that no matter how fast you are going, swells, waves or seas don’t care. In fact, they pay no attention to you or your comfort at all, they just move along on their merry way, usually a lot slower than you want to travel and almost never in a direction, size or interval that will help you go faster, or more comfortably along. You will pound, slam, plow, skew, lurch, yaw, plop, thunk, bounce and flounce along with bone-jarring constancy, and the faster you try to go, the more it will hurt. Your stomach and internal organs will never be still, and they will be constantly trying to escape the confines of your body, through either of the body’s two main exits – north, or worse, south. It’s very important that the powerboater, Captain or Mate, keep those innards contained. Although I am not a medical student, I also nonetheless acquired on this trip a real appreciation for the wonderful way that the human body, although flexible, is still held firmly together with cartilage and connective tissue; otherwise mine would have flown apart quite early in the trip, and the boat would have beeen followed by a flock of feeding gulls, much like a herring trawl. I realized, after about an hour, that I did not need to hold onto various valued parts of my body in order to retain them. Besides, I did not have enough arms and hands for that. Forget the old expression, “One hand for yourself; the other for the ship.” No. it’s, “Both hands for yourself ’cause the Captain is driving the ship.”

You really can’t eat, or read or drink except from a water bottle on occasion. Hearing protectors are a must to prevent your gray matter from turning to jelly from the high-decibel whine of the turbos, so there’s no talking, and the only sign language the Captain and I know is the Rhode Island Driver’s Salute, and we were not yet at a point in the voyage where we might be of a mind to exchange it. So you’re basically in a bouncing cocoon, with most sensory input disabled except for your sight. “This ain’t fast,” Capt. Bill growls. “Not really. I took a squadron of boats down the coast once on a multiple delivery, mix of gas and diesel boats. The gas boats were faster than the diesels. Hell, they could pass anything on the water – ’cept the fuel dock!” he roared. Attempts to drink the first – and only – coffee of the day were equally frustrating. This was especially true on the second morning, when Capt. Bill was in a hurry to get going early and we rounded Sandy Hook in choppy seas going at an ambitious clip because he wanted to make time. I had brewed some coffee and had a hand-warming tin cup full of it when we hit the first seas going around the point. What followed was a half-hour of holding the cup with both hands and working it up and down, as though I were perpetually making an offering to the Sea Gods, or throwing rice at the bride at a wedding. This was a ridiculous motion, I am sure, but it kept the coffee from spilling, yet I could never get it near enough to my lips, long enough, to steal a sip. No, Murphy’s Law states that as soon as you get it close enough to your face to get a sip, it will rise up, drench, and scald your face. I knew this, since I am quite familiar with Murphy’s Laws. What actually happened was that as soon as the coffee was cool enough to drink, we hit an especially big sea and it went all over me, the console and the cockpit floor, thus

becoming an offering to the Sea Gods via the scuppers. I was so busy with my own coffee that I never noticed what Capt. Bill did with his. I recognized, from the start, that I was the junior guy aboard, and I was fine with that. Capt. Bill doesn’t waste words, and he’s not taken to a lot of silliness or smiles. His humor is dry but genuine, and if you ask him a direct question, you’ll always get a straight answer. That’s easy, because you always know where you stand with the Captain, and if you mess up, well, you’ll know that right away, too. We left Narragansett Bay on a wet, windy, rain-soaked morning, rounded rough “P’int Judy,” and headed toward Long Island Sound. Capt. Bill is a clever, strategic guy; we went inside Fisher’s Island, then down the sound, hugging the inside coast of Long Island to protect us against the southerly swell and give us docile enough seas so that we could keep up a good pace. We passed through New York, under the many neat bridges, and into busy, hot, murky, cloudy New York Harbor, past Lady Liberty, under the Verrazano Narrows Bridge, and off toward Sandy Hook to refuel. Thunderheads were building, and it was hot and sultry at the fuel dock when we finally arrived in Sandy Hook’s Atlantic Highlands. Skinny kids were crabbing with long-handled dip nets. I glanced longingly at the shore, but realized that I would be spending a sweaty, smelly night on an anchor out in the bay, probably with lightning flashing all around. Surely the anchor would hold if set right. Oh well, I told myself, that’s sailing . . . er, boating. Ah, but no, not with this Captain: “We need a slip for the night,” he told the dock attendant, pulling out the owner’s charge card and paperwork.

gust of wind so powerful that it forced the boat up hard against the pilings. In the early morning, we were once again on our way, down the long and interesting New Jersey coast, past Manasquan, past Barnegat light, past Atlantic City’s high-rises, and eventually to Cape May. As we crossed Delaware Bay, threatening clouds built up once again, and a black squall surrounded us off the Delaware coast. I was anxious, but I never saw a hint of concern on the Captain’s face the entire trip. “Well, we may have to dodge a few thunderboomers here and there,” was all he said. In the end, there was little lightning, not much wind, but torrents of rain that happily made the sea lie down so we could maintain our speed. Eventually the high-rise buildings of Ocean City, Md., materialized through the clouds and mist, and we passed through the inlet and were in a slip at our final destination by 5 p.m. Clearly, we were in sportfishing heaven: Boats looking just like ours, feature for feature, only larger, lined up like soldiers in full dress at attention, their outriggers in line like shouldered arms with bayonets, ready for parade or inspection. “Fish-killin’s big here,” said Capt. Bill. Although it was hot and humid, I could relax, now; the trip was over. In the morning, we would go to the airport to get the rental car and take turns driving home. In the meantime, this marina had all the right stuff, showers and bathrooms, a tackle shop with hot coffee early in the morning, a nice outdoor bar and a restaurant – even better overall than the marina in Sandy Hook. Owners and captains sat around the bar and talked about bringing in white marlin that day, caught in the Gulf Stream 40 and more miles out. I almost expected to see Papa Hemingway with a tall daiquiri in www.pointseast.com

front of him, drunkenly regaling the other fishermen with his own whoppers. Instead, here was Capt. Bill buying us both a drink and a truly civilized dinner. “I’ll bet you’re feeling muscles you never knew you had,” he grinned. “We certainly got beat up a little bit, but that’s to be expected on an express delivery. But you’ll sleep well tonight.” It had been a bumpy trip, but there were times when the sea was relatively docile, and it was occasionally my turn to take the helm for a while. The last stretch had been from Little Egg inlet, above Atlantic City, down past Cape May and into Delaware Bay, nearly 60 miles. I stood at the helm, rather than sitting, since I was used to that as a sailboat skipper, and, when the seas allowed, extended the trim tabs all the way, pushing the bow down, and then throttled up, zooming across the seas for almost three hours in a ride that was nothing less than exhilarating. But I had a sore body now, and I

also realized that if I were making the same trip in a sailboat, it would take nearly a week unless I had a crew of at least three and we sailed on the outside 24/7. I might do that someday, too, I thought. But for the moment, I was content; the rich, green eelgrass of the salt marsh surrounding the marina looked a lot like crab country; heck, it even smelled like blueshells. I looked at the restaurant menu; fried softshell crabs. Oh, my. “Dinner’s on me tonight; that’s the custom,” the Captain said. “Know what you want?” “I sure do.” Capt. Mike Martel lives in Bristol, R.I., where he writes about marine subjects and is restoring, in his free time, his 1930 Alden-designed gaff yawl Privateer. An ex-Coastie and licensed Master, he is constantly looking for opportunities to get out on the sea as a delivery skipper or professional crew while romancing rotted wood in his boat shed.

HIS STORY, continued from Page 57 We all learned this was an area the British retained control of for some time after the Revolutionary War concluded. We hiked up the hill to view the remains of the fort, of which there was little left other than the earthen walls and some stonework. It was interesting to see how the town used the site in modern times: In the center of the fort was a Little League field, a grim reminder of the game we were missing. Our evening meal was lobster and steak, and I ate too much but just could not stop. It was too wonderful. A few drinks at a shoreside pub gave us a chance to get to know our shipmates a little better. We made our way slowly to Isleboro the next morning. It would be generous to say the winds were light, but it was quiet and relaxing and gave us a good chance to read, relax and see the spectacular coast of Maine as it slid quietly past. The Grace Bailey had no engine so any motoring was done with the yawl and its 55-horse turbo diesel pushing her along, which she did at a nice clip. One of the crew took the time to demonstrate some marlinspike seamanship, and showed me how to weave a rope mat. We anchored Saturday night in a quiet bay off Isleboro, summer getaway for a number of celebrities. The 250-pound primary fisherman-style anchor is lowered and raised by hand with the original hand-operated capstan. It was lifted into its place along the rail with block and tackle in the rigging. We did not have to use it, but were told the 500-pound storm anchor could be difficult to raise. Once the boat was secure, some of the passengers went ashore to tour the island. My wife and I decided to stay behind and tour the bay in the 100-year-old Whitehall pulling boat, which was a joy to row. When all were back aboard, the crew treated us to another fabulous meal, a New England boiled dinner. The next morning dawned as the others had, foggy and cool. We raised sail to the best wind of the cruise and enjoyed a lively, although short, sail back into Camden harbor Sunday morning. I watched in wideeyed fascination as the captain and crew expertly

It was a great cruise despite the poor weather and one I would highly recommend. It was a brief step back in time to experience cruising the Maine coast on a classic wooden schooner. guided the Grace Bailey back to her berth. It was a testament to the captainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skill in boat handling as I was positive we were going to hit something in this crowded harbor. An aspect of the cruise that stands out is the crew, all of whom were outstanding. They were competent, fun loving, attentive, and always ready to do what was needed. They clearly love doing what they do, and it showed in their attention to the boat and passengers and their overall good nature. The captain was especially good, and it was clear he was both liked and respected by the crew. And I will never forget the boat itself. I love boats, and the Grace Bailey is amazing, truly living history. Nearly everything on the boat is the same as when she was first launched and is still run the same way. The only technology on board was a battery bank to run cabin lights, GPS and VHF radio. Nothing else was modern; everything else was original. She is a wonderful craft with no need for Mylar sails, double-braid line, fancy technology or stainless steel. It was a great cruise despite the poor weather and one I would highly recommend. It was a brief step back in time to experience cruising the Maine coast on a classic wooden schooner. Unfortunately, I believe it may have backfired as it was not what my wife had in mind when she suggested a crewed charter. Her vision included warmer temperatures, more comfortable accommodations and boat drinks. Tim and Sylvia, of Biddeford, Maine, sail a 1971 Ericson 29 out of the Marblehead area of the Saco River.

HER STORY, continued from Page 54 weekend of the windjammer cruise was going to force me to miss an All Star game. Realizing how important this trip was to Tim, I agreed to miss the game. We arrived in Camden and were greeted by our captain. He and his crew loaded us in the dinghy, and we motored to the Grace Bailey. The fog was so thick we could not even see her until we were almost on her. Well, that’s summer in Maine: You never know what you’ll get for weather. The standard introductions were made, and the rules of the boat and the working of the plumbing, stove and general information were explained. We were assigned our cabin, which was small but had enough storage for our wet-weather gear, which I purchased solely for this adventure. I was a little shocked to find that our showers were foot-pedal operated, and it was the same water used for cooking. Because we had to conserve water, I felt some guilt and was pretty sure it would be sponge bath and baseball hats for the weekend. The crew couldn’t have been nicer. They tried to tend to our every need, and they sang while they worked. They took time to answer any questions Tim had; for Tim, this was a dream come true. For me, it was camping on a floating tent. I can’t really comment on the experience because I really didn’t have much of one. When the captain called “all hands on deck” (any of

For me, it was camping on a floating tent. I can’t really comment on the experience because I really didn’t have much of one. those who wanted to help), I’d go below to be out of the way. I had no desire to hoist the sail, which they did hoist, but unfortunately there was little wind so we had to use the dinghy’s motor to push the boat along. We docked in a little town, and had a fabulous steak and lobster dinner on deck. After dinner, we took a walk around the very quaint little Maine town. So was our first night quaint. As I mentioned before, the cabins were small, and it was like sleeping on the ground. But what should one expect when sleeping on a boat? Thankfully, the cook had the foresight to know that some of her passengers would appreciate a hot cup of coffee and warm muffins on deck upon crawling out of their cabin. The day of “sailing” was pretty much the same as the day before: low visibility and little to no wind. I brought a couple of books and an iPod to keep myself entertained. I found a spot on the damp deck (I purchased pants with wicking so I managed to stay dry). The cook kept the coffee and hot water going all day

long. There was never a shortage of food or beverage. We anchored the second night in a cove. Tim and I took a row in the dinghy, just to get off the boat (into a smaller boat) and have a little time to ourselves. We got back on the boat and poured a glass of wine. Providentially, it never rained. We woke up early, and again there was coffee and muffins waiting for us on deck. They hoisted the sail, and off we went back to Camden. We got back to shore in good time (I think we used the motor and the sail). Capt. Dan maneuvered the boat into the packed marina like it was a 16-foot motorboat. His skill is impressive. We thanked our crew, who were by far the salvation of my first overnight experience on a sailboat. I know Tim still wants to try it on our own boat, but unfortunately for him, the windjammer cruise did not have the intended effect. I have even more doubts than before. Our current boat doesn’t have a shower or a crew. It has Tim and me. And as much as Tim says he’ll do it all, he won’t be able to. Sylvia and Tim are planning a weeklong charter in the Virgin Islands. Sylvia finds a nice lee behind a hogshead and tunes into a good book while tuning out the dampness and the chill.

North: A 14-year-old catches 13-pound halibut Bluefin tuna fishing has been slow, but some behemoths have been landed. Angler Brad caught this tuna from Capt. Steve Patterson's White Lie out of York, Maine.

By Craig Bergeron For Points East Where is everybody going when the sun goes down? You should keep fishing and get out there and fish the rocks. The rock piles on Higgins Beach, Scarborough Beach, Biddeford Pool, and Bay View need to be fished at night if you want to catch striped bass. Wood Plugs are getting out there – needles and Dannys; dark purple is a primary color. Under the full moon, a slow retrieve with whites and yellow plugs was productive. The quick clips keep you fishing and make it easier to change your plugs at night. But for most surfcasters, chunk macks, clams and worms, fished at the traditional spots an hour before high tide in the Saco, are the silver bullets this year.

mercial pier but are having trouble catching them. Our best suggestion is to sling eels and walk and retrieve, with nothing on the line except a swivel. Walk the shore and retrieve slow . . . slow . . . slow. Daytime spots early in the morning, if you catch the incoming tide, have had good results. At Goosefare Brook, near Old Orchard Beach, try to get your chunk bait just beyond the surf in the rip. The offshore reports record a slow week for bluefin tuna, but fisherman are catching them. It’s hit or miss, guys are telling me. We marked a few and found bait, but they were just not taking the hooks. Jeffrey’s Ledge has some good cod and pollock fishing, but the

northern side of Tantas had dogfish. However, some small cod were caught on the southern part of Tantas. Sharks are getting some ground fishermen and tuna fishermen aggravated. Word has it a porbeagle was brought into Camp Ellis Sunday, and another at Port Harbor Marine. This from Luke Martin at Saco Bay Tackle. “I took my two 14-year-old twin daughters out to Tantas July 2. We got on some cod; fish were on as soon as we dropped jigs and teasers, both tipped with clams. My daughter Kelsey hooked a nice fish and fought it all the way up. To my surprise, a halibut surfaced. I’ve never been lucky enough to catch one, but Kelsey

landed a 13-pounder on the teaser. We took some pics and released it. Great day for the girls, but not a lot of action out there – only four whales and no dolphins, seals or tuna. Craig Bergeron has been a manager at Saco Bay Tackle in Saco, Maine for 18 years. He’s an avid saltwater fisherman who loves to teach people the art of serious offshore fishing techniques, from custom line splicing to rigging squid rigs for bluefin tuna. It was a great day to be fishing in Maine, with haddock showing up more often, but this poor cod never had a chance. Photo courtesy Saco Bay Tackle

Points East is a customer favorite; whether in the service department, the dock house or the restaurant you find someone reading their favorite pages.

Handy Boat Service located in the Heart of Casco Bay was founded in 1934 and has been one of the most popular stops for those cruising the Maine coast. Over the years, HBS has built everything fishing draggers to custom racing sailboats and as a full service boatyard stored and maintained the thousands of vessels. Located just five miles north of Portland we are close to a major airport, bus station and passenger rail service. Our boat yard crew stands ready to offer their expertise for storing, maintaining, repairing or rebuilding your vessel. We have storage for 165 boats up to 35 tons. During the summer season we have 50 seasonal guest moorings for short term or seasonal rental. After 31 years of ownership Merle Hallett sold the company in 2008. During the time Merle owned the company Handy Boat became one of Maine’s premier yachting facilities in Maine. Since the sale of the company the same people that helped Merle are still here to serve the yachting community. Last fall we began a major facility rebuild by tearing down the old restaurant and building a new facility for the Falmouth Sea Grill Restaurant. The Sea Grill reopened on July 11th and has already become very popular. The first floor seasonal dining and bar has an open deck and inside seating with large doors that allow the front wall to open and let the sea breeze in. The second floor dining room and bar will be opening later this summer and will remain open year round. The Falmouth Sea Grill serves only the freshest sea food and steaks with the best view of Casco Bay. Moorings and dockage are available for those visiting the restaurant by water. Included in the project are new bathrooms, showers, laundry and service department office at the head of our pier. The boatyard business office and three retail spaces will occupy space on the second floor.

Our other tenants; Hallett Canvas and Sail, New Wave Yachts and The Boathouse remain on site and have also received upgrades to their facilities. It has been an exciting time for everyone at Handy Boat and we hope you will plan to stop by and check us out.

trong tidal currents in and out of the Kennebec River just won’t leave me alone. Not only did they once cause the most humbling and near-disastrous grounding of my boating career, but as recently as this past summer they were still trying to drag me onto the rocks in the middle of the night. The Kennebec may not be Maine’s longest river, but in my book it is certainly the most powerful. The amount of water flowing in and out past Fort Popham and Pond Island, then out over the Seguin Ledges and beyond, can create a navigational nightmare for unwary mariners just outside the river mouth. I got a sobering reminder of this while delivering a newly acquired Grand Banks 32 back to Portland last August. We had left Boothbay before midnight, and about two hours later, heading to pass outside of Seguin Island, I found us to be well to the north of our intended track as the flooding current was sweeping us up toward the land and, in part, toward the river’s mouth. A GPS fix plotted on the chart showed us right on track at 0100, but the next one, a half-hour later, showed us having been set close to a half-mile north toward Tom Rock, one of many navigational hazards in the area. Continuing on the same heading would have brought us right into the rocks near Seguin Island. It was one more example of the value of plotting regular fixes and comparing them to where you should be with a given course and speed, especially when operating at night in the vicinity of the Kennebec River. In that particular case, we simply altered course to the south for 15 minutes, then swung back onto our original heading to pass outside of Seguin. The looming black bulk of the island, topped by its fixed white light 180 feet above sea level, made an impressive presence as we cruised by uneventfully in the darkness. But there is not always such a happy ending: About 15 years ago, I bounced the keel of our 88-foot steel schooner, Ocean Star, off a rock ledge in dense fog a couple of hundred yards east of Seguin Island and narrowly avoided losing the boat. Whenever I think of Seguin Island, I can’t help but recall how close we came to a maritime disaster, considering that there were a dozen people on board, all friends and family, with plenty of children. Ocean Star was developed as a training schooner, spending most of the year instructing adult students in the arts of offshore and coastal navigation. Marketed through “Ocean Navigator” magazine, the

schooner ranged seasonally from Canada to the Caribbean. This particular time was the start of a twoweek Maine coast vacation cruise – without students. Prior to departure, I had decided that it would be nice if we could all visit Seguin Island, pick up one of the moorings there, and climb to the top of the island for a visit to the lighthouse and its keeper. It was navigational arrogance that led us to those rocks – that plus a strong flow of water sweeping out from the Kennebec past Seguin and past all those naveditor@pointseast.com


igational obstacles that are normally fairly visible during the day. Halfway to Seguin we figured out why we could not see the island. The entire region outside the Kennebec was enshrouded in fog. But that was not going to stop us. After all, we were supposed to be the navigational experts. Others on board may have had reservations about sticking to this destination in dense fog, but politely, and perhaps foolishly, they let me make the decision. As we motored slowly past Ellingwood Rock, which stands guard immediately to the north of Seguin, we had two people conducting continuous radar fixes as fast as they could be plotted on the chart, thus monitoring our approach. We had a good helmsman at the wheel and lookouts all over the deck. Turning south toward the U-shaped harbor at Seguin, the plot showed us being set to the east of our desired track even as we repeatedly altered course to compensate. It was a calm afternoon with a modest swell coming in from the ocean. But visibility was nil. We could not see what was happening to us. By the time alarm bells were really going off in my mind, it was too late. Water depth suddenly diminished, and that’s when we bounced off the rock. As a swell picked up the boat and then passed underneath, our keel came down hard on a rock, which seemed to set the entire vessel to vibrating, especially those steel masts and all the rigging. At least that’s the way I remember it. Perhaps with the further effect of the swell passing by, the schooner then heeled over dramatically to starboard, maybe to 30 degrees before quickly righting herself. It was a frightening moment for all of us. By that time I had put the engine in reverse, and we commenced powering backward, hopefully in the direction we had come. Everyone on deck was in shock – speechless – myself included, especially after that scary roll to starboard. Someone dropped down below to check for water or other damage. There was no visible damage anywhere, except to our own feelings. The radar plot continued. We knew that we had fetched up on the rocks and ledge that form part of the eastern arm of the U-shaped harbor. It was then that my daughter, six years old, broke the silence by saying, “Don’t worry everyone, the Ocean Star is made of steel.” Then, after a second’s pause she added, “Wait…the Titanic was made of steel, too.” Her innocent comment did not exactly draw laughter, considering the circumstances, but it served to lighten the moment. Then it happened again. As we moved slowly backwards, those rocks had one last crack at us. With the bottom of our keel nine feet underwater, it is easy to visualize it happening. Another swell picked us up and then dropped that heavy keel, with its one-inch protective steel shoe welded to its bottom, flat onto anwww.pointseast.com

other rock with the same seemingly catastrophic result. But at least there was no roll that second time. We kept moving backward, and in another minute or so we figured we were clear of the rocks. Our heading throughout this near disaster was more west than south. After two hard groundings, you would think we had had enough. But since we were so tantalizingly close, and since we were more or less heading into the tidal current, I suggested that we could just dodge to the north a bit to clear that rocky area and then head back towards the island itself, or at least into the little harbor, neither of which were visible. It was just a few minutes later when the northern tip of Seguin appeared about 50 to 100 feet ahead of us, and we could see that there were actually people standing on the rocky point waving their arms at us. That’s when we all collectively decided to get the heck out of there. Rather than risk further embarrassment inside the tiny harbor, we turned tail and navigated our way back out past Ellingwood Rock, with plenty of allowance for current, and headed east towards the western shore of Southport Island. I think that was the longest fivemile run in my life, but there was still plenty of navigation to attend to, so that kept our minds mercifully occupied. Dropping anchor at the first available spot an hour or so later, those of us who felt responsible for this terrible turn of events more or less collapsed on the deck of the pilothouse. While passing a bottle of rum around, we commenced to rehash the entire painful experience. The following morning, rather than get started with our vacation cruise, we chose to prolong the feelings of guilt and agony by going into Boothbay Harbor to hire a diver to inspect the bottom. It seemed to take forever, but when the diver finally returned to the surface and dragged himself back into his inflatable boat, he looked up at all of us lining the rail, shook his head and commenced to apologize. “I think I can find where you might have gone aground,” he said, “but if you are expecting me to come up with a damage report I’ve got nothing.” The relief we all felt was tangible. It was the second time we had been spared the worst consequences of our navigational blunders. But while I, too, felt immensely relieved at the diver’s findings, the incident dogged me throughout the two-week cruise, and it has stuck with me ever since. The only good part, in this sense, is that it served to make me a far better and more cautious navigator – or so I think. Greg Walsh, retired publisher of Ocean Navigator and Professional Mariner magazines, is former owner of the 88-foot schooner, Ocean Star. Points East August 2011 103
