Letters Only seen an amateur use ice-pick Capt. Jay Michaud’s comments in the May Letters on Andy Schoenburg’s article (“The surveyor did what?” April 2012) were right on, but I believe . . . he left a misconception that the use of an ice-pick is general, too, for inspection on wood boats. While I am not a surveyor I attended dozens of surveys on wood boats done by my father, Capt. Giffy Full, well known in his day, and have, as a yacht broker, sold a number of wood vessels and attended those surveys as well. I have but once seen an awl (not an ice-pick) used by a surveyor, and that was brought out only after an area of question was identified by the use of tap or percussion testing with a phenolic hammer – and with the permission of both the seller and buyer. It was used to probe frame ends on a substantially built vessel where the surveyor found some of the frame ends poor and wanted to determine if there was any material of any strength below the surface. As a side note I have seen an ice-pick in a novice’s hands poking at a wood boat. One of the problems with using such a device is that the point is so fine that one does not need to apply a lot of force to drive it into thoroughly sound, but softer, woods such as cedar and many species of pine. As Capt. Michaud states, the proper tool is the phenolic hammer on any surface from the boot top up – and perhaps something harder (e.g., a nylon hammer) below the waterline only. Bill Full, CPYB East Coast Yacht Sales Yarmouth, Maine

That’s the canal, not Woods Hole I just read the well done and most entertaining article by Joe Kelly (“A Center-Console Offshore Cruise”) in my June Points East. The text and pictures to illustrate it were excellent. However, the large opening picture is not, as captioned, the Nantucket Skiff entering Woods Hole, but rather entering the east end of the Cape Cod Canal, with the handsome console heading toward its landmark power plant. Great issue as always. Warren Hayes Hanover, Mass.

But for the caption, a pleasing tale As a resident of Sandwich, Mass., I immediately recognized the large photograph on page 34 of the June www.pointseast.com

issue as not “heading into Woods Hole,” but rather the eastern entrance to the Cape Cod Canal, coming from Cape Cod Bay, with the GenOn (formerly Mirant) powerplant in the center of the photo. The Sandwich Marina and Coast Guard Station Cape Cod Canal are located in the cluster of low buildings appearing just under and to the left of the powerplant’s stack in the photo. Aside from the wrong caption, however, Joe Kelly’s journey in the Nantucket Skiff made for a good read. I would like to try that trip myself one day. I thoroughly enjoy the magazine, which I regularly pick up at various locations on Cape Cod. Robert O’Connor Sandwich, Mass. Editor’s note: Thank you, Warren and Robert, for calling attention to this gross misidentification of a vital landmark to all mariners, commercial and recreational. We appreciate your continued enthusiasm for the magazine, despite this embarrassing gaffe.

Don’t give up the ship, go smaller Enjoyed John Bergstrom’s article (“The Westport Sloop”) in the May 2012 issue, especially: “I think it may be time to start thinking of getting a smaller and simpler boat….” I’m 84 years old and recently came down to an O’Day 20, which fits into the smallest slip at Southern Yacht Club here in New Orleans. It’s been great. I have a four-horsepower outboard for windless moments, and I often sail alone, though I prefer company. So, for us old guys, it’s “Don’t Give Up the Ship – just go to a smaller size!” Peter Beer Judge, United States District Court Eastern District of Louisiana 500 Poydras St. New Orleans, La.

The year of painting dangerously This was our year for bottom paint. We needed to paint both the work skiff and the mooring barge. We lucked out with some of those unusually warm days last month. When I told the clerk at Hamilton’s I needed paint for an aluminum boat, he said I had chosen the wrong type. He took the can of paint from me and grabbed another off the shelf. “Here,” he said; “this is what you want.” Points East July 2012

I replied, “OK,” and let him shake it up in the machine. Except, when we were back at the marina and kneeling over the upturned skiff and pried open the paint can, we discovered red paint. I had selected black, but our friend at the store inadvertently picked a can of red. “Wow” Jeremy said, “Looks like lipstick.” “Well, I’m not driving all the way into Portland just to swap paint,” I said. Actually the red doesn’t look too bad. It kind of grows on you, and besides, it’s the fish that see it most of the time. Painting the barge was another challenge. The boat does not sit level on the water due to the weight of the motor and the winch. But we wanted the waterline to be level when seen from shore. “Paint it to the scum line,” one old-timer told us. “You only see one side at a time anyway.” Instead, we measured, ran out our chalk line, and snapped a blue line the length of the pontoons. We measured some more. Stood back and stared. Adjusted this and fiddled with that. I’d read in an old boatbuilding book that a good way to sight a waterline was to bend over and look at it upside down. I did, and looked at the blue chalk line back through my legs. My friend and fellow marina owner, Gary, saw me twisting and bending backward and yelled, “What the heck are you doing?” In the end it was a matter of consensus. When everyone agreed, we ran out the blue tape and taped her off. You know what happens when you hold a paintbrush up over your head under a hull: It’s not long before the paint runs down onto the handle, and your gloves stick to the gooey paint. Just sheer persistence and a certain pig-headed determination get you through the job. The day was warm and nice so that helped. When we launched her on the high tide, the waterline appeared level and straight. We used green paint this time. Randy Randall Marston’s Marina Saco, Maine

Offer to PE readers from FBHI I live fulltime at Constitution Marina. Living at CM I know that they have worked hard for many years on the moorings and at Spectacle Island. I have not heard more about the Spectacle Marina and moorings as of this writing, but when I do, I will email Points East. Spectacle, while almost 100 percent new, is a wonderful place to spend a day, and a night as well. The raccoons were quite large when we were there for the last Constitution Marina end-of the-season party two years ago, but that didn’t stop the fun time, and the wonderful scenery. The Friends of Boston Harbor Islands (FBHI) have been very busy this spring, and have been working hard to schedule boat trips from Boston to some of the hardto-get-to islands. I don’t know if there is a way to get a notice into Points East with your printing lead time, but if there is, we could offer a membership discount to your readers. The discount would then provide a discount on haul-outs at Admirals Hill Marina, sailing classes at Black Rock Sailing School, Boat US memberships, and, of course, our own boat trips to see lighthouses, and trips to the islands.

Richard DeMarte: Write more I thoroughly enjoyed reading Richard DeMarte’s article in the June issue (“It’s Not Just the Fish”), primarily because it is so well written. His ability with words is among the best I have ever seen in boating circles. I am totally amazed that he is so young – just now graduating from high school. Richard: Please write more articles. And all the best of good luck at Binghamton University. Bill Van Winkle m/v Prime Time Little Silver, N.J. Richard will have a regular fishing report in Points East throughout the angling season.

Corrections to letter to Phil Weld I take the liberty to make a few corrections in Richard de Grasse’s good “An Open letter to Phil Weld”

in “Letters” in the June issue. Richard has confused me, Dick Newick, with Walter Greene, who built Weld’s 1980 OSTAR winner, Moxie, to my design, at Handy Boatworks in Falmouth Foreside before Walter established his boatyard in Yarmouth, Maine. Moxie is now available for charter in the south of France. Weld’s first of my designs, Gulfstreamer, was capsized en route to the 1976 OSTAR. He and his crew were picked up by a freighter. The boat was later salvaged by a Russian vessel, and now sails in the Mediterranean. Tom Grossman’s 180 OSTAR racer, Kriter VII, which I designed, placed 10th in that race after we took 24 hours to repair damage from a collision just before the start. That boat day-chartered in the British Virgin Islands for many years. Dick Newick Sebastopol, Calif.

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

Entrance looks like creek through the sand This is Hingham, Mass., Harbor. The wind turbine, located in Hull, in the background was a dead giveaway for me. My boat, Goodform, is a Fortier 26, and I keep it in Cohasset Harbor, opposite the Cohasset Yacht Club. We often visit this area for a picnic as it is well protected, the water is warm, and the views are terrific. There is just enough boat traffic to keep it interesting. Entering this area can be tricky, but not difficult. We usually enter Hingham Bay from the north (near Boston light) through Hull Gut. Depending on the wind and tides, this can be unsettling to the faint of heart. After crossing the east side of the bay, you begin the entrance to Hingham harbor. Pay attention to your charts (GPS). As the channel narrows, the Hingham Yacht Club will be to starboard. They sell fuel at reasonable prices. After the yacht club, there is a mooring field and some anchorage spots between two small islands. This is where we usually stop, but you can go much farther. If you do, pay particular attention to the channel as it is winding and very narrow in places. At low tide, it looks like a creek through the sand. The inner part of Hingham harbor is quite visible from Route 3A as you drive by car. If you’re thinking of cutting the channel, drive by at low tide to see, and you might change your mind. There is a small marina at the far end of the inner harbor, and I believe they rent moorings. The downtown is nearby and there are many good restaurants. Around the Fourth of July, Hingham has

a terrific fireworks display from the middle of the harbor. This event alone is worth the trip. Al Moore Cohasset, Mass.

Bunky Kehoe built that workboat I believe this is Hingham, Mass., inner harbor. The aluminum workboat is the mooring service vessel for Pirates Cove Marine. Hidden in the photo, except for the pilothouse, is the red workboat Little Red, built by the renowned Thomas “Bunky” Kehoe. After I retired, I ran a launch for Pirates Cove Marine in the fall after the summer launch drivers returned to school. The windmill in the background is the second windmill installed in Hull. Our home is in Hingham as is our boat, a recently purchased (used) Eastern 31, Monhegan. The boat was purchased in Maine, and we closed the deal in August, the same month my wife and I were married 38 years ago. We honeymooned on Monhegan Island, hence the name. Hingham Harbor has been our homeport since 1987. I believe the Downeast cruising boat in the photo is a 30-foot Cape Dory, Alura, owned by Gary and Liz McDonough. But the real giveaways were the aluminum workboat, Silver Bullet, and the Hull windmill. Only with close scrutiny did I make out the boom and wheelhouse on the workboat Little Red in the background. You publish a great magazine and I especially like David Roper’s columns. I recently met David in Marblehead for a sandwich, and he was nice enough to autograph a couple of copies of his book. “Watching for Mermaids.” Benjamin Matthews Hingham, Mass.

Perspectives The other side of the lens e came alongside the moment I snubbed Chang Ho’s anchor, maneuvering his battered wooden skiff flawlessly from a sitting position atop his tired, misfiring outboard. His agenda, I soon learned, was to sell me a lobster. Fair enough. My agenda during the transaction was to learn something about this roguish young teen with the startling combination of piercing blue eyes, Native American facial features, and shoulder-length black hair. I soon learned that he lived with his parents on a mast-less hulk of an old sailboat astern of me, which was tied to a partially sunken float piled high with wooden lobster traps. “Why you living out here?” I asked. “John [my dad] says it’s just fine to live off the grid, as he calls it. He and Mum been doing it out here for sixteen years, me for thirteen. All my life, actually, except a few times to get gear, and when we went to the

H

mainland to get me born. No problems with this ‘off the grid’ stuff, I guess. John says, ‘You can’t miss what you never had and what you never needed in the first place.’ I figure he meant us having kerosene lamps instead of electric lights, or us having a wood stove instead of electric heat, or us reading book after book instead of watching one of those televisions. Guess I got slid onto John’s hook pretty easy over the years regarding that stuff. But now I’m beginning to wonder. “Met a kid about my age this summer. Came in on one of those big plastic sailing yachts. Showed me a bunch of his gadgets. Kid was about thirteen like me. Black hair, straight and long like mine. Cool kid. I liked him. But, man, the guy at the wheel, he sure didn’t know shoot about what he was doing. Raising his voice. Talking like he had rocks in his mouth.

Don’t know how he even made it past the outer ledges, much less past the inner east ledge. That one’s caught more than one of those shiny yachts loaded up with what Pa calls the ‘weekend warriors and their adoring ladies.’ Best part is when they come steaming into our narrow harbor, just missing a couple of ledges that they don’t even know are under them, and then they continue on down-harbor like it’s some bottomless trench going on for eternity. “Except it doesn’t. By the time they see the muddy beach at the end it’s too late. They’re in four feet of water with six foot of keel under them, and that just doesn’t work. That forty-foot of yacht just stops like a clam-digger’s rake hitting a ledge. Would probably sound about the same, too, except ’course it’s happening too far underwater. “Now the best part: That’s what Pa calls the ‘freeze frame.’ All these rich folks are first walking around on deck and pointing at this and that, at our shanty on shore, at our old boat home tied up to our bait float, and maybe even at grubby, long-haired me in my skiff, like I’m some sort of illiterate, orphaned kid character from Dickens or something. Then it’s ‘freeze-frame’ time and it all stops. “That forty footer going three or four knots is now instantly doing absolutely zero knots, but the motor, she’s still chugging away. The guests in their fancy canvas sailing hats with one side turned up to make them look like, what … fishermen? The guests in their fresh leather boating moccasins … the guests all tucked inside those belts with the whales and anchors on them…the guests in their shirts colored a green I’ve never seen the likes of on any bush, tree or grassy

knoll. These guests…they all just stop. Freeze frame.” He stopped and looked skyward, brushed some long strands of hair from his eyes, and seemed to sniff at the budding east wind. Then he smiled before continuing, and I glimpsed some teeth with a challenged future. “Might be the best part of my people-seeing all year, which only lasts a couple of months out here on the island.” He paused again, a boy clearly with time for his thoughts. “It’s something about that point when there’s just no more control left in their world. It’s right then, when their world has stopped dead inside ours, and for a few special moments they just don’t know why. It’s the bewilderment I like. Best part. All that fancy gear and all the money and all the engine power doesn’t matter.” He looked astern at their old sailboat and bait float anchored near the inner end of the island’s tiny slit of a harbor. “And that captain at the wheel, he tries to spring into action, like some character out of a Robert Louis Stephenson or Patrick O’Brien book, but he’s not the least bit sure of what to spring into. He’s got a holster on his belt, but in it is a yellow VHF radio instead of a gun, and he’s got a fancy knife case on that whale belt, too, and a green beer can in one hand. None of these going to help. As Pa says, ‘Sometimes having it all is just not enough.’” He looked back at the sky and then at the rugged rolling terrain ashore. “Yeah, our island, our harbor, our place… it’s got them by the short hairs.” Dave Roper’s new book, “Watching for Mermaids,” which climbed to No. 4 on the “Boston Globe” Best-Sellers List, is available through www.amazon.com.

Getting time on the water he other day, the sainted mother asked me to please get her cell phone out of her pocketbook. Naturally, I jumped to my feet and set to it immediately, despite a good deal of apprehension. Over the years, I have borne sly witness to what women store in their pocketbooks, and who knows what dangers lurked deep within. When my kids call the sainted mother, they always call twice. The first call is just three rings and then a hang-up. This is the alert call, telling her to begin the process of retrieving the phone from her pocketbook. The real call is the second one, made one minute after the first. By then, they hope, the phone has been found and readied for the call, and thus the appeal for a college-allowance increase (the only reason they call these days) can be negotiated. Beats me why she bothers to pick up at all, but that’s another story.

I was right to be apprehensive. By the time this particular archeological excavation of her pocketbook was over, I had found a parking ticket from 1981, three business shirts she once picked up for me from the dry cleaner we used when we lived in New York, the Complete Clapton CD collection I have been trying to find forever, a sorry looking jar of Vegemite procured in Auckland for the kids during the 1999 America’s Cup, and the rusty old maroon Subaru stick shift her father bought her when she graduated college. I never did find that cell phone. I think it was in the other pocketbook. The one in which the cat lives. I tell you this story because it’s important to me that you understand the staggering insight that women and men are not the same. They are equal in every respect, of course, but they are not the same. When I leave the house, I do not take a pocketbook. I take only

Put differently, just because you like something doesn’t mean your spouse has to like it, too. In fact, she shouldn’t even have to pretend to like it. Nowhere is this truism more relevant than in the area of sailing. the car keys and a credit card. Sometimes, more often than I care to report, I forget to put on socks, and twice I have even overlooked the putting on of pants. No, we are clearly not the same, and it seems to me that many make the colossal mistake of confusing equality with sameness. This is the path to ruination. Just yesterday, a recently divorced mate of mine asked me for a few jokes he could use to enlighten a date he was planning that evening. I had to explain to him that, while men loved nothing more than telling lies and swapping tall stories, preferably over a libation, women were different. They are absolutely not interested in a man with a sense of humor. I know this because I am hilarious. No, women don’t want humor. What they want is to be released from the obligation of laughing again and again at the same old story told again and again. Put differently, just because you like something doesn’t mean your spouse has to like it, too. In fact, she shouldn’t even have to pretend to like it. Nowhere is this truism more relevant than in the area of sailing. Consider for a moment that the sainted mother is

not the seafaring type. She’s game enough – she’s a Maine girl after all – but she much prefers an art gallery to blue water. I’ve seen marriages rent asunder by this point of difference. The period of time just before the marriage ends is the worst, though – even worse than the termination itself. I have learned this fact through astute observation, sharpened on occasion by a couple of dry martinis. A mate of mine is a member of the New York Yacht Club. Once or twice a summer, we sit outside on the lawn at Newport, each sipping on one of the aforementioned martinis, and watch the boats coming in below us at sunset. Watching how a couple brings their boat up to a mooring tells you a great deal about the state of their nuptial condition. You know it’s heading for the rocks when the wife positions herself up at the sharp end of the boat to “help” with mooring. If she is wearing a jaunty French striped nautical sweater, white pants and red boat shoes, it’s over. That outfit is a dead giveaway. She’s doing it for him – the husband and commander – not her, and he never knows what he doesn’t know and wouldn’t admit it if

Watching how a couple brings their boat up to a mooring tells you a great deal about the state of their nuptial condition. You know it’s heading for the rocks when the wife positions herself up at the sharp end of the boat to “help” with mooring. he did. So he can never hit the mooring ball. You can hear the mutual accusations echo over the water. “Dammit Marjorie, I’ll have to go round again.” “Well dear, if you can slow right down next time, maybe I can snag it. I’m doing my best.” The exchanges gradually ratchet up with every mooring-ball miss, until the Commodore can’t stand it any more and sends a boat boy out to intercept the boat as it negotiates the mooring field for the fifth time and get her safely tied up. My buddy Ray can’t help himself. As the harried, red-faced couple comes up the path and into the bar, he always looks up at them and asks brightly, “Another nice day on the water?” We don’t do that. The sainted mother comes along when she wants to come along. And, it’s not mandatory for me to visit every art gallery in the country. On those rare occasions when Her Majesty comes on board, the rail must never touch the water, the use of nautical terminology is prohibited, and there must be

no expectations of assistance. Further, the rank of captain must be temporarily suspended so that occasional advice can be proffered…and heeded. This tidy arrangement works just fine. It means that I can go sailing pretty much whenever I want. Well, after I’ve cut the grass and tidied up the yard, cleaned and gassed up the cars, finished the laundry, and provided the means by which the family enjoys the standard of living to which they each appear to have become accustomed. We are equal alright, as I’m sure you can see, perhaps some of us more than others, but we are most definitely not the same. Provided I get my time on the water, that’s just fine with me.

PERSPECTIVE/Linda

Symmetry on land and sea ew England summers, as much as I live for them, often present me with a dilemma: Shall I sail or work in the garden? Sailing and gardening are my passions. Both passions consume me from April through November. However, given the short sailing season, I always am ready to hop on the boat instead of pull weeds. We like to take long weekend cruises aboard our Catalina 380 Bonnie Christine as well as a good twoweek cruise to any of the fantastic areas within a day’s sail of Scituate, on the South Shore of Boston. But I do enjoy cooking, and nothing pleases Billy and me more than when I am cooking something I have grown in my garden. Because he also enjoys scuba diving, he will often supply an entrée, such as flounder, crab, or lobster, and I will prepare something from my garden bounty. So during the summer months, when I am harvesting, I try not to leave anything behind when we head for the boat. I will take the time to canvas the garden and harvest anything that is ready, or even near ready. Then I wash everything carefully at my kitchen sink and package it so we will be able to enjoy it for the duration of our

trip. In May and June, my lettuce, spinach and Swiss chard, which I planted back in April, are ready to be thinned out. I also can harvest my hardy perennial herbs, such as chives and parsley as well as the garlic which I planted the previous fall. Garlic is wonderful as any part of the plant can be harvested at any stage once the ground starts thawing. Onions, whether planted in the spring or survivors from the previous year, are also a great find. In July, the broccoli and summer squashes (zucchini, yellow crookneck) start coming faster than I can pick them. Now the cucumbers start appearing seemingly overnight. The summer herbs need to be pruned. Basil, dill, cilantro, tarragon…I pinch them back and the plants reward me by getting bushier. Finally, August arrives and brings the first tomatoes, both red and yellow. Then the peppers, they love the hot weather as much as I do, send out their beautiful fruits. In September, I pick the early winter squashes: butternut, acorn, sugar pumpkin. Fall herbs arrive: the rosemary, sage and thyme. October reminds me that there

also work their way into everything we eat, and I can never make enough tomato sauce. When the fall weather sets in, I turn on the oven and the odor of roasting winter squashes seasoned with rosemary takes the chill off the cabin. As much as we enjoy eating at the dining establishments in the harbors we visit, we prefer eating on the boat. The food is usually better, and the service can’t be beat. It is cheaper, too. When we eat from the garden, we call it FTG (food to go). While on the boat, we call it FTGOTB (food to go on the boat). Sometime in early November, we finally haul the boat home for the winter. By now, the garden has gone by. I pull weeds and plant crops for the spring harvest. I lay blankets of salt-marsh hay to keep her warm for winter. We put the boat to sleep for the winter, too, in the same manner. We tuck her in and do the chores necessary to help her through winter’s slumber. We change her oil, drain the water tanks, wash her sails. I enjoy the downtime and hibernation period of winter. As the dark season sets in, I take comfort knowing that, as with the garden, thankfully, there is an Eternal Return with the boating season.

News Stellwagen wreck Lamartine on Register The wreck of the Lamartine, a 19th century schooner that hauled granite for construction of streets, sidewalks and buildings along the U.S. East Coast, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the nation’s official list of cultural resources worthy of preservation. The wreck lies within NOAA’s Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary in Massachusetts Bay. Built in Camden, Maine, the 79-foot, two-masted cargo schooner was launched in 1848 and enjoyed a 45-year career along the Eastern Seaboard. While hauling granite sewer heads from Stonington, Maine, to New York City on May 17, 1893, the Lamartine encountered a storm off Cape Ann, Mass. Heavy seas caused the schooner’s cargo to shift, capsizing the vessel. One crewmember drowned as the schooner settled beneath the waves, and the captain and mate were tossed into the ocean. Luckily, a fishing schooner reLAMARTINE, continued on Page 22

Seabird identification stickers put on Maine’s ferry windows Maine’s ferry passengers frequently observe seabirds as they travel between the mainland and the islands. Many passengers can’t identify these birds and some may wonder what types of seabirds they are. In response, the Friends of Maine’s Seabird Islands (FOMSI) has developed window stickers depicting Maine’s most notable seabirds. FOMSI and the Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refuge [MCINWR] have already applied the stickers to many of Maine’s ferries. Maine Coastal Islands Refuge islands provide habitat for common, Arctic, and endangered roseate terns; Atlantic puffins; razorbills; black guillemots; Leach’s storm-petrels; herring, greater black-backed, and laughing gulls; double-crested and great cormorants; and common eiders. FOMSI hopes this familiarity will enhance public support for the conservation of seabirds and Maine’s coastal islands where these birds nest and raise their young. FMI: www.maineseabirds.org.

Tabor senior starts model-boat program for disabled students Student sailors with disabilities will have the opportunity to race model sailboats as part of an extensive senior project undertaken by Tabor Academy (Marion, Mass.) senior Asa Smith of Wellesley, Mass. Smith is completing and renovating model boats left unfinished from previous semesters by students taking the Ship and Boat Design class. He will donate two of the boats to the 2012 Robie Pierce One-Design Regatta for sailors with disabilities in Larchmont, N.Y., two to Duxbury Bay Maritime School’s Accessail program; two to the New Bedford Community Boating Center; and one to the Schwartz Center in Dartmouth, Mass. With the support of Robie Pierce, of Newport, R.I., a 1958 Tabor alum, and Capt. David Bill, head of the Nautical Science Department at Tabor, Smith obtained permission to donate them from their previous owners. He spent the semester completing them, painting them, and building the remote controls that will enable those with disabilities to sail them in model-boat regattas. “I found a biography about Robie in an old alumni magazine at Tabor that talked about how he’d founded the Shake-a-Leg program in Newport, which is now called Sail to Prevail,” said Smith. “I got in touch with him . . . and he’s been so supportive of my project ever

Climate change is already happening in Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay region, and will intensify in the years to come, according to the spring edition of “Narragansett Bay Journal.” Some impacts observed by Watershed Counts (www.watershedcounts.org) include increases in air and water temperatures, rising sea level, and increasing rainfall and storm intensity, all of which result in more coastal and inland flooding and increased coastal erosion.

People use it in boats, summer cottages, basements, – Chick Michaud, cars and more. It’s really good stuff.” Brewer Pilots Point Marina, Westbrook, CT ”We placed one 4oz container of Kanberra Gel in the engine room, one in the owner’s stateroom, and one in the galley. That was all that was needed to keep the boat smelling great. Amazing.” – Captain Tim Rollins, M/Y Solitude

Based on information from buoys and other monitoring sites throughout the bay, significant increases in bay water temperature have been observed over the past decades, with a change in the annual bay surface temperature of almost three degrees since 1960. Winter bay temperatures have increased by about four degrees, which is expected to cause major ecosystem shifts, affecting the bay’s fish populations. Sea level has risen over eight inches at the Newport tide gauge since 1930. Eight inches may not look like much, NBJ says, but this trend will accelerate causing widespread shoreline flooding during high tides and coastal storms, especially during hurricanes and nor’easters.

Maine Maine Maritime Museum, 243 Washington St., Bath

A visit to Maine Maritime Museum is an ideal learning experience for schoolage children because the museum has a number of activities that engage their natural curiosity and sense of discovery. Children can pretend to be the skipper on a tugboat or raise an anchor by hand on a sailing ship. They can start a giant steam engine or test their navigation talents in the World Trade Map game. They can watch videos of maritime activities in the crew’s living quarters, or be the person who launches the schooner in the ship-launching demonstration. They can visit the home of a 19th-century shipbuilding family and compare it to their own home, or see how lobsters are trapped in the lobstering exhibit. They can go aboard and below deck on a fishing

They can exercise their flights of fancy by pretending to be a pirate captain on the Pirate Play Ship, and top it off by buying a pirate book, game or hat in the Museum gift shop. For adult visitors Maine Maritime Museum is a treat for the senses – an enriching, often transforming, experience that is both educational and captivating. Located on a beautiful 20-acre campus on the banks of the Kennebec River in Bath, the Museum encompasses the sites of three turn-of-the-century shipyards where large commercial wooden ships were built. One of those was the Percy & Small Shipyard, most of whose original buildings are still intact and open for touring – the only such site in the entire country. Even world travelers are awed at the full-scale sculpture of the schooner Wyoming, the largest wooden schooner ever built, in the center of the campus. Four indoor exhibits showcase different aspects of maritime life, from global trade to fisheries, where visitors hear and see the stories of the successes and tragedies that have been part of life in coastal Maine. Additional exhibits include the remnants of the last clipper ship, Snow Squall, which carried cargo to ports around the world; a extensive exhibit devoted to the his-

New Hampshire Strawbery Banke Museum

Fisherman’s Museum Pemaquid Point Lighthouse Bristol, Maine

Pemaquid Point is one of the most visited attractions on Maine’s coast. The U.S. Coast Guard owns the tower, and the lighthouse opened in 2003 to allow people to go into the lighthouse and up into the tower. Adults enjoy the history of lighthouse and appreciate the importance of keeping history alive. Kids always enjoy going up into the lighthouse and seeing what they can see from there (there is a child height minimum of 48 inches). Annually, on National Lighthouse Day (Aug. 7 this summer), events geared toward kids are planned. The Fisherman’s Museum, owned by the town of Bristol, is more than about lighthouses – it’s about the kinds of fishing in the area and the shipwrecks. It’s not really for young kids, although there are a few hands-on things. Both the tower and museum are part of Lighthouse Park, which has picnic tables and is perched on prominent rock outcroppings that go from the lighthouse down to the water. This is the only lighthouse in Maine open seven days a week in season. Fun Fact: Pemaquid Lighthouse is featured on the Maine State Quarter. By Sea: Hardy Boat Cruises offers a Lighthouse Cruise that motors by various lighthouses. Great fun for kids and adults. Admission: The cost to enter the park is $2 per person. There is no cost to enter the lighthouse tower or museum.

Strawbery Banke Museum is a 10-acre set, with 40 historic buildings that tell the 350-year history of the settlement of the seaport of Portsmouth, – the fourth largest port in Colonial America. The real families who lived in this riverside neighborhood, called Puddle Dock,

were ships’ captains, merchants, boatbuilders, craftsmen, influential political figures and immigrants whose fortunes rose and fell with the Atlantic tides. Kids who visit with their parents – and with the many school groups who come because Strawbery Banke, as the proprietors say, puts “history within reach” – enjoy the hands-on opportunity to imagine themselves in past lives while

Fashion” showcases 25 garments and accessories from the Museum collections, alongside modern designs inspired by the collection and interpreted by contemporary designers, both prominent international names and ingenues. The exhibit, displayed in lifestyle vignettes in some eight historic houses, shows how clothing helps us understand how people lived in their respective eras – and what fashion says about the social customs and perceptions of the times. Because it is a seaport, Portsmouth has enjoyed a fashion-forward sensibility from colonial times to the present. The influence of fashion from the European capitals of London and Paris, thanks to Portsmouth’s sea captains, is very evident in “Thread.” By sea: The harbor entrance is easily discerned between Whaleback Light – Fl (2) W. ev. 10 s. – and Portsmouth Harbor Light on Fort Point (fixed green, Horn 1 bl.

USS Albacore Submarine 600 Market St., Portsmouth

Children love the USS Albacore because there’s a lot of hands-on activity in the submarine. Unlike some other submarine museums, this one doesn’t use Plexiglas to cordon off areas. This submarine is totally interactive with both children and adults. As far as the kids are concerned, they can sleep on the bunks, steer the submarine, look through the periscope, sit in the wardroom, and put their hands right on the engines if they want to. There are lots of dials and buttons and gauges to push, in addition to audio-tour buttons. In the audio tour, there’s a full 30 minutes of explanations for each area. The children come out excited. “Yankee Magazine” voted Albacore Park as the Editors’ Choice in 2011. The award said that the park was the best hands-on historical attraction in New Hampshire. And there are usually no lines. This is an historic submarine from both engineering standpoint and national-defense standpoints. Commissioned in December 1953, Albacore served until September 1972, when she was decommissioned.

Shaped like a fish, with a cod’s head and a mackerel’s tail, she was extremely maneuverable. From the Albacore Park website: “She could reach 27 knots in short bursts. But speed was not her sole asset. She could do tight turns and dives as if she were a jet plane. In fact, her control room resembled the cockpit of a jet, her diving officer directing her course and depth with a single ‘stick’ while strapped into a bucket seat complete with seat belt.

Adults enjoy the manufacturing and business story. Herreshoff ’s design, manufacturing and construction technologies were generations ahead of their time. Even Henry Ford came to Bristol to understand the manufacturing processes. The assembly line and other techniques of mass production were pioneered here. Cars and planes also were built here.

they’ve never seen before and the parents may see something familiar. That makes it definitely desirable for a family trip. It is going to the beach, too, because there are two beautiful beaches on either side of the lighthouse.

The Ensign is a heavy boat that handles seas and a step chop well, but it is small, and the sight of even five-foot swells can be daunting.

I was 48 and had sailed much of my life, but until we got the Ensign, I had never been the one in charge. I had never had to make the call on the weather, never had to read a chart, never had to set an anchor, never ventured more than a mile outside of Mackerel Cove on Bailey Island. What this meant – as the most experienced sailor and as a mother responsible for all her family on board – was that as much as I wanted to make this trip, I had this feeling of dread and my stomach had this little knot in it even thinking about the journey. The weather had been balky for a week: rain, fog, too much wind, and many thundershowers. Saturday promised to be perfect, and Sunday, too. It was our window of opportunity. We’d heard The Basin could be crowded on a summer weekend so we wanted to go Sunday. Sunday dawned to fulfill the promise with clear skies and 12- to 15-knot winds. I decided not to listen to the weather report again as I was afraid that weather analysis-paralysis would set in and I’d lose my nerve. We left the dock at 10 a.m., Charles at the helm. Several people had recommended we take the route out behind Ragged Island to avoid the rock-laced channel closer to Orrs Island. That sounded good to us, but since that meant there would be no landmass between the open ocean and us, the swells would be part of our sail. The Ensign is a heavy boat and takes seas and

chop well, but it is small, and the sight of even five-foot swells ahead or astern are a little daunting – something else for a mother to worry about. For me, nothing on the water looks the way it does on the chart. Distances are distorted and islands take on different shapes. I also can’t store more than one buoy’s worth of information in my head, so if I don’t consult the chart constantly, I become easily baffled. To stay calm, as soon as I pass one waypoint, I am searching for the next. After passing Bold Dick, we

Chuck was having fun using the binoculars, but had to share them with Abby and Sam. Just as tensions were mounting, Abby and Sam took up positions on the bow dangling their feet, eating animal crackers, and Abby was telling stories to Sam about imaginary people. These are the moments any family strives for. Being together, happily engaged. To be doing it on a beautiful day, on the water, on our own boat, setting off for an adventure is quite magical. It was why I wanted to do it in the first place, despite the knots in my stomach. I found that my knots remained once I was on the water, but that feeling of dread had gone away, and I was happily just negotiating the issues at hand. The prior year, Chuck had spent most of the summer on the boat in the cabin taking a snooze but this year he was emerging steadily as a reliable and involved crewmember. The entrance to The Basin can barely be seen from the water. Boats heading in seem to suddenly disappear. Right on schedule, we editor@pointseast.com


took down the sails and began motoring in the narrow channel, which takes almost a 90-degree turn. There are no houses in sight, and the trees come right to the shore until it opens up into a wide anchorage. A few docks are there, and one wide, green field slopes all the way to the water. About six boats were on moorings over on one side, and only three were anchored. Waiting for the weekend rush to be over had paid off. Successfully anchored, cold-cut sandwiches or tuna were on the menu, but since I had forgotten the can opener, cold cuts were all that was available. In the middle of making the third sandwich, a gust of wind came up and our reference point told us we had definitely dragged anchor. Fortunately, we saw it right away and still had daylight to reset. After this episode, I had visions of no sleep this night, worrying about dragging anchor. We decided to leave the outboard down if a quick anchor reset became necessary. We finished dinner; only one neighbor was left and the waters were still. Our next tense moment came when we tried to figure out where everyone would sleep. I don’t know what the kids had been thinking, but I knew that Dad and Mom were definitely getting the berths. Sam was afraid of sleeping on the cockpit bench, and we had a “close to tears” moment before we made a rope arrangement that would hold him if he started to roll. Charles made a nest just aft of the mast across the bulkhead, with all of the sail bags and life jackets. Abby claimed the floor. Once the kids had made their beds, they settled into playing cards, and my husband and I read. The kids tired of cards, and I pulled out a book and read to them. It wasn’t a story I had planned to read, but I think I could have read the dictionary, they were so ready to be lulled to sleep. When we were losing the light, www.pointseast.com

around 8:30, we put the boom tent on and brought out the little book light for a few more pages. Just before 9:00, Sam, my youngest, leaned off his bench and said, “When can we do this again?� By 9:10 we were all asleep. When I awoke around 5 a.m., it was to the rumble of thunder and flashes of lightning. The churning in my stomach that had subsided through the night was back in force. What to do? Wake up the rest of the family and make a run for it? Pull up anchor, head for the dock, and wait it out on shore? Lie there and do nothing? I chose the latter. Storm after storm rolled over and across. Since The Basin is so sheltered, it was impossible to know what it was like outside. I was calculating how long it would take to get to the nearest port, Cundy Harbor. We had all done very well in close quarters, but anticipating much more of it that day was pushing our luck. Finally, there was a minor brightening in the sky. My husband, awake by then, agreed we should shoot for Cundy’s, get gas and ask advice from the local fisherman. We left the majority of the boom tent up, to minimize the number of people who had to get wet. We donned what little foul-weather gear we had, and Charles, who is usually in competition with me to decide who’s in charge, only helped out long enough to get the anchor up. Then he went back down to climb

into a sleeping bag next to his sister. Abby, by this time, had barely stirred, and Sam was trying to figure out what would happen if we were hit by lightning. We tried to be reassuring. Though it was heavily overcast, as we left The Basin’s channel we had enough visibility to see Cundy’s, a short 15-minute motor away. At Cundy’s, the few fisherman on the dock said that heading to Bailey in this weather was “no problem.� The channel was well-marked, and visibility would be fine. They told us if the lightning gets too bad, just pull up between the islands with their tall trees. That’s what the fisherman do, they assured us. We forgot to ask them about chop and swells. As we pulled out of the harbor, the wind hit us, and the waves started breaking over the bow. It was hard to tell if it was still raining, due to the spray. Through all this, my easily angered spouse remained calm. I was at the helm, standing up to be able to see over the boom tent, and gripping tightly to stay standing. He was the official navigator, consulting the chart every moment to be sure we did not miss a buoy in the dimness and gray water. The last mile was pretty much open ocean, with seven- to nine-foot swells – definitely intimidating in our boat whose bow rises only 24 inches off the waterline. The most remarkable part was, I loved it. Out there, CAPTAIN MOM, continued on Page 50

alive. I loved our boat, this vessel that brought us together and helped me know we can count on each other. I loved my family with an intensity that said I don’t want to be anywhere else on earth right now. I had faith in the boat as it took each wave most bravely. I had faith in our family; that we could spend this time together in such tight quarters. That our children were not afraid and trusted us so completely was daunting but reassuring. We were doing our job as parents. The minute we were in the Gut at Land’s End, the world was completely calm. As we rounded the tip of Bailey Island with its famous World War II towers, the sun came out. What was all the fuss about? It was a beautiful day. Photo courtesy Gay De Hart

Chowder Cup Race slated for Aug. 4 By Nina M. Scott For Points East Congratulations to Gail Rice for sharing the history of the GMORA in the June issue of Points East, in which she traced its expanded racing horizons and membership from the 1970s on. We are not in that league. However, I think the Friendship Chowder Cup (FCCR) is older, having been started in the 1930s by the nonexistent Royal Friendship Yacht Club, but it has always been a strictly local event, with most competitors coming from Friendship or Round Pond. We will gather on Aug. 4 at noon. The boats (monohulls only) are organized into three classes: A: 28 feet or over; B: 18 to 28 feet; and C: 18 feet or under. At the post-race potluck, the three winning skippers in each class are awarded pottery chowder cups, but the really handsome prize is the Timothy Pickering Memorial Trophy, an engraved pewter bowl, which goes to the LBI (Last Boat In). This fact alone shows that the FCCR has its priorities straight. Skippers wishing to participate must register at least one day prior to the race with Bob Zeitlin, either at zeitlin@brandeis.edu or by calling him: 207-832-7230. Do join us.

Ida Lewis Race to have college and high school teams The Ida Lewis Distance Race, starting Aug. 17 off Fort Adams in Rhode Island’s Narragansett Bay, welcomes back the Youth Challenge – for sailors between the ages of 14 and 20 – for a third year, and has added college and high-school teams to the roster. The race – open to IRC, PHRF (including Cruising Spinnaker and the Youth Challenge division), One Design and doublehanded boats of 28 feet and longer –offers a choice of four coastal race courses (with distances of 104 to 177 miles), with turning marks at Castle Hill, Brenton Reef, Block Island, Montauk Point, Martha’s Vineyard and Buzzards Tower, and a finish off Ida Lewis Yacht Club. “This is one of the few overnight events that gives youth the opportunity to race head-to-head against some of the best race boats in the world,” said Race Chair Dirk Johnson, of Newport. “When teenage crews have a chance to see, in real time, how an America’s Cup or Volvo skipper or navigator tackles the same challenges of wind and tide as they are facing, the learning curve is straight up.” A high-school team from Wakefield, IDA LEWIS, continued on Page 58 Points East July 2012

IDA LEWIS, continued from Page 57 R.I. – the Prout School Sailing Team – has temporarily swapped out training in its fleet of 420s for practice sessions aboard an Outbound 44, which they will enter in the Ida Lewis Distance Race. “It’s a totally different skill set than when you’re on a dinghy,” said freshman Kohl Peasley of Wakefield, who will be taking on his first-ever offshore excursion. “I think it will definitely help our team bond and stay in sync.” Joe Cooper, from Middletown, R.I., Prout’s sailing

coach, will be onboard to help with the team’s transition into big boats. “Team cohesiveness is pretty key,” said Cooper. “Skills and knowledge can be learned, but teamwork must be built over time, and this group of high school students has already mastered it.” The 69-foot custom sloop Gracie, with Skip Kelly, of Burke, Vt., as its captain, will be defending the Youth Challenge title this year after taking home the Arent H.

Va.) Temptation-Oakcliff and Larry Huntington’s (New York, N.Y.) Snow Lion. “We had sent a guy up the mast looking for wind bands,” explained Dickey. “We saw the Ker 50s near shore and figured since they were in our [IRC 50] class we needed to at least go cover them. Little did we know they were leading at the time. Even though we are a newer design, they are faster in a lot of conditions, so we had to make up our difference with smart sailing.” Temptation-Oakcliff and Snow Lion ultimately finished second and third in class, respectively.) For Ron O’Hanley’s team, which won IRC 0 class aboard O’Hanley’s Cookson 50 Privateer, from Newport, R.I., it was all about calling the breeze, which he described as “higher than expected but incredibly variable within even short distances.” While typically this race is won or lost on making the correct call on exiting or entering Long Island Sound through either Plum Gut or The Race, or even Fishers Island Sound, this was not so much the case this year. “We kept extremely close to shore to minimize current on the way out [through The Race],” said O’Hanley. “Coming back [through Plum Gut], the current was on the nose but just changing, so we really never had to worry about it.” FMI: www.stormtrysail.org.

Author chronicles long journey to adulthood A Star to Sail Her By: A Five-Year Odyssey of Adventure and Growth at Sea By Alex Ellison; iUniverse, Inc., 2011; 225 pp.; E-Book $9.99, softcover $19.95, hardcover $29.95.

I admire parents who decide that to take their families to sea for extended cruises of many years. Or even a week. Yesterday, a couple of cruisers docked next to us were headed to dinner with their daughter and her friend. “I don’t know if we’re celebrating them or the fact that they are leaving and we will finally be alone,” the dad said under his breath to me as he passed me on the dock. The kids were 26 years old. Think about it. It can be a major challenge to take kids anywhere – a long drive, a visit to Washington, D.C. Even to dinner. But on a small boat that has to become their home, their school, their therapist’s office, their bedroom, and their shelter from ever-present danger? No matter how you cut it, that takes guts on everyone’s part – mom, dad, kids. Hell, even cruisers without kids often quit by the time they get to Bermuda, their dreams dashed by the realities of wind, wave, filthy living, lousy food, and sharing tight quarters with people who may well be exhausted and seasick and are most certainly sick of you. I enjoy reading the books these cruisers often write. It’s all the more impressive to read one of these books when it is written by one of the kids, and written very well at that, with words that I, a college English teacher, have to look up. “The propinquity to our ship was so awe-inspiring, we did not have time to react or

ponder fear.” Really? Or: “It arose so suddenly, it seemed an island was generated de novo.” Oh. Obviously, Alex Ellison, the teen-aged author of “A Star to Sail Her By,” is one smart kid and an excellent writer. Better yet, he’s a normal kid with normal kid behaviors whose family took him on an extraordinary adventure. By the time he was 15, he had sailed 25,000 miles with his family on a voyage that took them halfway around the world. Alex’s story may be even better than the adult version because of the honesty and innocence with which he takes us through the deep changes that usually occur between the ages of 10 and 15, when Alex was at sea. There is a profound moment toward the end of the book when, as he begins his first solo night watch, Alex comes to grips with the long physical and psychological journey he has taken to young adulthood. Like any clever writer, Alex knows this is no time to blather on about it when a simple declarative sentence will say it all: “I was alone.” Of course, that sense of being alone was only heightened by now having the responsibility for the fact that he wasn’t really alone: His father, mother and little sister slept below, trusting Alex to take them safely through the night. Dad is an archetype – the, quiet, determined captain who, jaws clenched at the arrival of stormy weather, inspires confidence and awe in the young crewmember. Of a difficult passage to Bermuda Alex writes: “Dad, our current helmsman, exuded grace under pressure, methodically trimming the reefed sails and guiding the vessel through the towering surf that was the approaching edge of Tropical Storm Claudette.” A few years later, Alex will realize that there is a crack in the archetype – that Dad can be enigmatic,

mysterious, aloof and emotionally reckless. Mom is a force, always there for Alex and his little sister, Lara. Warm, nurturing, strong. She is the glue that holds this voyage together through some very difficult challenges – an armed robbery; storms; Alex’s struggles as a student in an island school; a close brush with death and a long, difficult recovery after a severe infection downs Alex. It is she who leaves Alex alone for that first night watch. Both parents have a clear sense of when to hold on and when to let go; how to achieve that delicate balance between safety and the rich rewards that derive from challenge and experience. On Nevis, swinging from vines, Alec recognizes the danger but is not protected from it. “These natural bundles of fiber easily held us, and standing on the tallest boulder, we swung out over the stony ground a good 20 feet up – a fatal fall if done wrong, amazing at all other times.” Ironically, it is in this swimming hole that Alex contracts an infection from stepping on a twig, an accident nobody could have prevented. At an island school, Alex struggles socially and educationally while his parents immerse themselves in the system, trying to improve the schools. They don’t quit until Alex is injured in a classroom fight. I have only one issue with this book, and it has to do with my last name. Palmerston is a very remote South

Pacific atoll. It was settled by one of my ancestors, James Marsters, an Englishman who settled the island with a number of his progeny after taking a number of wives on neighboring islands. Alex spells the name “Marster.” Forgiven. The greatest mystery of “A Star to Sail Her By” is the way it ends. With sudden swiftness, the kids are told to pack their belongings. “An hour later, my entire family and all our worldly possessions were loaded into the dinghy.” So ended the great adventure as they flew home to Connecticut. This didn’t make sense to me, and it didn’t make sense to Alex. “Mom,” he asks, “so why did we just give up like that? What’s going on?” His mother’s first response is evasive, but Alex has grown, and this kind of answer won’t fly any longer. “ You gave up in the middle of the dream of your – our – lives so you could spend more time in the America we have banished ourselves from for so long? We are never going to be able to do that, what we attempted, again.” She tells the truth, a truth that could have been told right away. But even the best parents often act in strange ways. Sometimes it takes a kid to straighten them out. It was Alex’s time to do so.

Hatch Screens

Prices start at $32 plus shipping

These custom screens fit over your hatches, letting fresh air in while keeping insects out. You can leave the screens in place and still close your hatches from inside in case of rain or chill. Each screen comes in a custom storage bag.

The best place to be when you’re not on your boat...

. . . is home. And a home at Parker Ridge is the best choice for active seniors who want smooth sailing ahead. Call Verena A. Stoll at (207) 374-2306 to learn more and arrange a visit.

To order, give us the outside dimensions of the hatch frame on the deck, and tell us what color you’d like (Navy, Dk. Green, Burgundy, Lgt. Gray, or White) for the weighted tubing enclosure around the bottom of the screen. We will custom make your order and ship it, asking you to send us a check after receipt.

After a long run of fog and rain, the sun finally made an appearance when we made Head Harbor on Campobello Island, where we aired out our bedding and damp gear. A few hours later, everything was fresh and sweet again.

Trial by fog t had been one of those weeks. A low-pressure system stalled off Nova Scotia blew in a steady diet of fog, rain and feeble southerly breezes that were hardly worth raising sail to, and we were soon well beyond finding anything beautiful, mysterious or evocative about the white darkness.

sign of substance. Next, Penobscot Bay presented nothing more than a yawning emptiness and succession of nodding cans, nuns and bell buoys. The sidewalks had long been rolled up by the time we made Perry Creek. It was near dark by dinner, black an hour later, and it rained all night. Rain can be a poetic business – when it’s not on my parade. I was not in a charitable temper. It didn’t get any better by the time we made East Penobscot Bay or Mount Desert Island. Thick-o-fog in the morning, scarves of mist waxed and waned by midday, but at least the wind blew up, and we raised sail. Beads of condensation formed on the brim of our caps, and on the rigging and everything else. Leigh had to wipe her glasses every few minutes in order to read the chart. A dungeon of fog piled back in by late afternoon, nibbling away at our confidence as we threaded our way between rocks and hard places. By the time Schoodic Point was astern a few days later, we’d stuffed a paper towel in the solar cabin fan, which ran in spastic fits and starts, and taped the classified section of Points East over the hatch vent. Try that with a blog. The sheets on our bunks had lost any semblance of crispness by the time we limped into the Mud Hole, having seen next to nothing of the wild coast. Chicken soup for dinner. Leigh skunked me at rummy, and the wine evaporated at a heady rate. Alone in the drenching vapors, with not a hint of shore to be seen, I made eye contact with a squalling gull that winged close by the cabin port. It felt like we were on the far edge of things. The flickering lantern cheered the Leight’s snug cabin, but the feint dirge of the Mistake Island foghorn lent a sense drama to our circumstance. Three fog-drenched days farther up the coast, we called at Cutler and Canada’s Grand Manan and Campobello islands, just bulling into it, occasionally catching sight of towering island battlements, as Bay of Fundy tide rips jostled the sloop about. We and she melded into a seamless accord all the long gray days, coming less to think about our stream of actions and reactions than to be them. Every minute of it was intense. Making fast to a lobster car near the limit of navigation at Head Harbor, eight days out, the sun made its first appearance, and four hours later, everything aboard was fresh, crisp and sweet. There’s hardly a day that can’t be improved upon, little profit in avoiding things that will make us more nimble – as annoying as they can be – and no point in whining about the weather – like I just did. David Buckman has been sailing for 71 years. His pretty good book, Bucking the Tide, is about discovering the wild New England and Fundy coast in a wreck of a $400 boat that leaked like a White House aide.

Maine Coast

Striper action is fast; groundfishing is slow By Saco Bay Tackle For Points East Good weather is finally coming back to southern Maine. Reports from customers are saying the beaches are producing great slot-size stripers from Wells to Yarmouth. Preferred enticements: clams, mackerel, and Slug-gos. John Shea reported that, on outgoing tides, the coastal inlets had great action using rubber shad and Slug-gos. Lots of surfcasters are out there, so find your spot early!

Swift rivers still have bait in them, but visibility is poor. It should clear up in a few days. Until then, keep fishing the beaches and Pine Point Jetty. (Don’t tell anyone, but sea worms, clams and mackerel are this month’s secret if you are fishing a sandy bottom. Dead-low tide at Pine Point was working out well says Capt. Keith Hall. Fish the rising tide. Mackerel were being caught on the pier in South Portland as well as in Kennebunk.

Matt Perry has had a slow start groundfishing at Jeffreys Ledge. He did not know that the slot size on cod decreased to 19 inches; he had five keeper cod over 24 inches long, and would have filled his limit. But he said he would have thrown the 19-inchers back anyway. There are not many haddock, but Capt. Ron Littlefield had some luck on haddock in early June. Butch Boisvert and Mike Bergeron finally made it out there, and found themselves on the cod at Tantas. Reports have been slow with the rough weather. Great day of fishing on Jeffries. Monster pollock and cod all day long. Earlier in June, Capt. Ron, of Maine Ocean Adventures, reported catching close to 200 fish, including a double catch of 19-plus-pound and a 12- pound Pollock. “Loads of fun all day,” he said, adding, “Catch you later.” And there’s more good news on the bluefin tuna front: They’ve been spotted offshore by lobsterman, and a few boats out trolling. Hopefully, this is a really good sign for the future.

Western Long Island Sound

Fishing is hot, but did water warm too quickly? By Richard De Marte For Points East With the early arrival of warmer weather this spring, fishing in the Long Island Sound was off to an early start. Warmer waters have triggered an early influx of baitfish as enormous schools of these menhaden (known in our area as “bunker”) have made their way into these waters. When this happens, it’s never long before their main predators, striped bass and bluefish, follow in suit. The good news this spring is that the fishing continues to be HOT, HOT, HOT. With so much bait in the water, stripers and bluefish have been aggressively gorging themselves, much to the delight of fishermen seeking them out by boat and from the shorelines as well. The hottest action has been just outside the harbors in the far western end of the sound, including the harbors of the north shore of Long Island from Manhasset to Port Jefferson as well as along the Westchester side from New Rochelle, Mamaroneck and Rye continuing up along the Connecticut coast to Greenwich, Stamford and farther east. Most stripers and blues are being caught using bunker as bait as well as trolling deep diving lures midsound in 30 to 60 feet of water. Several stripers in the 25- to 40-pound range have hit the scales in local tackle shops, while a solid run of stripers in the 12- to 18pound class continues. Early morning and nighttime fishing in and around harbors is the key to success, and trolling Rapala Magnum deep-diver lures is a favorite and best bet for midday fishermen. Mixed in with the striped bass, bluefish have also made an early appearance and these toothy critters are making reels scream as well. Most are still on the smaller size with four- to seven-pounders being the norm, but there are a few gorillas in the 12-plus-pound range mixed in. Henry Hanson, a Byram, Conn., resident, and local striper ace, has been into the action this spring and excitedly told me it’s “the earliest and best it has been in decades” and that “I had the best day of jigging up 12to 20-pound stripers last week that I’ve ever had fishing

these water for over 40 years.” On the light-tackle side, fluke fishing is also off to a great start in Rye as well Greenwich and the north shores of Long Island, including Prospect Point, Oyster Bay, and out as far east as Port Jefferson. Spro jigs tipped with squid or spearing seems to be most productive, and fluke of up to eight pounds are already being weighed in. Captain Kevin of the Snow Goose party boat in Port Chester reports, “The fluke bite is really turning on now so come on out for some fishing with us for these tasty flatties.” With all this super fishing already under way, saltwater fishermen in our area are having the time of their lives, but they’re also wondering if this early start and warmer-than-usual water means that the fishing will also hit an early lull this summer. This typically happens in late August, when the water temps get well into the high 70s. Stay tuned for my next update as the season progresses. Richard is headed to Binghamton University this fall to start his college education, where he’ll be majoring on environmental studies. On the fishing front, he’s focused on landing, tagging, measuring, weighing and releasing his 1,000th striped bass. He will have a regular fishing column in Points East through the fall.

LAST

WORD/Bill

Bowman

Make your own ‘yacht’ flag A couple of summers ago, my wife, Jo, and I attended the WoodenBoat Show in Mystic, Conn. Typically, lots of different seminars are offered, like wood bending, cruising, and how to build a boat, to name a few. At this show, we attended a seminar on how to make a flag. I knew nothing about yacht flags before attending, but Bettina Braisted, The Sailbag Lady in Madison, Conn. (www.sailbaglady.com), did a thorough job of explaining their history and the basics of building one. She explained that flags were traditionally used to identify, at a fair distance, who is out “yachting.” We learned that Lloyds of London has a registry of flags that was published on a regu-

lar basis, listing by color and category the personalized flags and their owners. This means we could look the flag up in the “Registry” and find the owner. There are literally thousands of personalized yacht flags. What a fun family project this would be, we thought. Bettina then explained how to make one using a home sewing machine with the zig-zag stitch, which keeps the nylon from unraveling. Her advice was, “Keep your design simple and use contrasting light and dark colors.” Here’s how it’s done: Vertical length: Start with determining the vertical length of your flag by taking the length of your boat. Divide that number by

two and change the feet to inches. For example: Our boat an Island Packet 29) is 29 feet long. I rounded the number up to 30 feet to make it easy. I divided that number by two and got 15 feet, then converted that to 15 inches for the vertical length of the flag. Horizontal length: To get the horizontal length, multiply the vertical length by 1 1/2 or 3/2, so 15 x 3/2 = 22 1/2 inches. I tapered it like a yacht club burgee and then cut approximately a 120-degree notch in the end so there’d be less of a tendency to unravel. Colors: You now have to decide on colors. Bettina said that the best combination is a light background with a darker color insignia or pattern. Design: Keep the insignia or pattern simple because you are going to sew it on both sides of the flag. It should look the same coming and going, which makes it easier to sew.

Design software: I used the Microsoft VISIO™ drawing program to build our design. Our first design was a “J” and “B” (for Jo and Bill) using the vertical lines of the “J” and “B” together, but this creates a backwards “B” and “J” on the reverse side. Since our boat’s name is Trinity, we next chose three rings as a design. The first attempt had an orange background, which we changed to yellow with dark blue for the design and edging. Then we changed the rings to a Celtic cross, triquetrous – three – Trinity: The design looked just right. The dark blue border helped the “design” stand out as it “frames the “Celtic editor@pointseast.com


Cross”. Using VISIO made it relatively easy to change things without sewing anything yet. Materials: I ordered my flag-making material (nylon), binding material and grommets from Sailrite, in Indiana (www.sailrite.com). They have many colors like yellow, green, white, blue, red and orange. The “Sailbag Lady” has even more colors. I got the one-inchwide, navy-blue ,quilt-edge binding for the border from the ubiquitous Jo Ann Fabrics. Pattern: I made a fullscale “blueprint” of the flag on a large piece of paper, determining that the border and the design (the Celtic Trinity) should be oneinch wide. To make the Celtic rings I made three half-circles out of cardboard, configured them, and glued them together. Then I cut out two Trinities – one for each side of the flag. Below is a copy of our design. Sewing/grommets: Once you have the border, the

flag and the design cut out, it’s time to sew the flag. I started with the border, folding the material in half so I didn’t have to sew two pieces of material together. Then, using straight pins, I attached each section of the border to the background and then sewed it on using the zig-zag setting. I centered the “Celtic Cross” on each side of the flag, pinned them in place and sewed them on using the zig-zag setting again. Next I added the flag edge binding, which reinforces the side that gets attached to the flag halyard. I used a straight stitch for this part. Last, I installed two grommets so I could attach the flag to a halyard. We hope we see you out there flying your own personalized flag, too. Bill is an Engineer at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine, plays five-string banjo and English concertina, and is active in the Men’s ministry at Christian Life Church (CLC). Jo is on staff at CLC, does Christian counseling, and plays keyboard.
