EDITOR’S PAGE/Nim Ma rsh

The captain’s hat conundrum We’ve quietly admired the so-called “captain’s hat” since childhood. Quietly? Yea, surreptitiously, because the subject of the “peaked,” or visored, headgear at sea apparently is as controversial among recreational mariners as choice of ground tackle. Our boyhood heroes wore them. Fictional seaman Tod Moran wore one in Howard Pease’s 1920s and ’30s trampfreighter adventures, “The Jinx Ship, “The Black Tanker” and “The Ship without a Crew.” John Wayne was styling with an airborne model in the 1954 flick “The High and the Mighty.” Our enduring vision of “Heavy Weather Sailing” author Adlard Coles is a photo of the unshaved icon, peaked hat shading slitted eyes, leaning coolly against the mast of one of his ocean-racing Cohoes after another routine Force-8 week at the office. So what’s not to like about the traditional captain’s hat? Well, if you’re not a hopeless romantic, steeped in the brine of seagoing adventure, plenty it seems. Back in 1932, Francis B. Cooke wrote in his book “Cruising Chats”: “The regulation yachting cap is in my opinion a wretched thing to wear. It is uncomfortable, offers little or no protection to the back of the head, costs a deuce of a lot of money, and is very easily blown or knocked overboard.” Then, he added, wearing one ashore caused confusion: “If a yachtsman thus attired drives a car, he is apt to be mistaken for a chauffeur, or if he has occasion to visit an underground lavatory, he may even have pennies offered to him.” Still, our penchant for the peaked hat has persisted. Finally, a few years back while working in a WoodenBoat Show booth in Newport, we bought one – a dog-eared commodore’s chapeau (Aristocrat Yachting Cap model), replete with ceramic burgee set in gold-braid crossed anchors – at a marine-consignment tent. Upon return to the booth, my partner 6

Points East August 2010

there, a renowned ocean racer and multi-yacht-club member, remarked drolly, “Well, at least you’re set for Halloween.” Later that day, my wife accused me of emulating TV bus driver Ralph Kramden. Then, the cruelest cut (sarcasm always is), obliquely delivered by former Points East columnist Tom Snyder in a diatribe entitled, “Five Bad Laws, Millions of Us. Let’s roll:” Of the five new boating laws he decried was “#3877: No man between the ages of 52 and 59 may wear a decorative captain’s hat purchased at a boating store or through the Internet . . . . The government is going to have to pry my cold, dead hands away from any of my captain’s hats – especially the ones with the ventilated cotton panel.” Another of Tom’s target laws, #3878, read: “Every registered boater will be limited to bagging one Cigarette boat per season. Any captured Cigarette boat under 35 feet must be thrown back. . . . We all know there is a shortage of Cigarette boats, and we must let stocks return to the levels of the late ’90s.” So you know where Tom is coming from. Francis Cooke told of an incident while waiting for a train at Hampstead Heath Station, wearing his yachting cap and a reefer coat and carrying one of his boat’s kerosene sidelights. An elderly woman queried him about the trains, and he replied that he didn’t have a clue. “Surely, she said with considerable hauteur, “it is the duty of the porter to know the times of the trains.” “That was quite enough for me,” Cooke wrote, “and I have never worn a yachting cap since.” And we don’t think we will either – outdoors at least. Today, our commodore’s hat hangs on a hook in our office, and whenever we need to lighten the mood, we don it and parade into the fray looking for all the world like Ralph Kramden or the lavatory man, knowing that our yachting cap was well worth the four bucks we’d shelled out for it. editor@pointseast.com


Letters Of ICW catboats and Lund boats The recent article “ICW Catboat Cruise” (May 2010) was great. I hope that my wife and I can do something of that magnitude when we are 70! I kayak different parts of the Florida coast each spring and also find that many powerboats on or near the Intracoastal Waterway show little or no courtesy to smaller vessels. Rule of Tonnage? Also, in reference to Dave Getchell’s “Tin Boat” article in the same issue, here is a photo of the Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) using an 18-foot Lund aluminum boat to pick up trash from Crow Island, off Great Cranberry, last summer. I belong to the MDI Paddlers, a local kayak club that helped clean the island. Bill Weir Bass Harbor, Maine

Seagull outboards the real ‘ting’ Regarding Dodge Morgan’s article on Seagull outboards (“The Seagull Outboard and Its Owners,” June 2010), of which I am the proud owner of two, I found this on a car in Bermuda while I was there recently. If you could forward it to him, he might find it amusing. Douglas W. Meyer Guilford, Conn.

Seagull outboards did their bit I would like to thank you and Dodge Morgan for bringing back pleasant old memories in his article about British Seagull Outboard motors. In 1944, I was in a boarding school in Devonshire, UK. Our headmaster acquired a smallish Seagull outboardwww.pointseast.com

powered working skiff and a seine net. We went fishing in the estuary and on the coast near the Exe river on the south Devon Coast. This was to augment our rather reduced wartime diet at school. I remember dismantling the motor on the common room table to make repairs. As Dodge points out, it was relatively simple for a 14-year-year old if one followed instructions. I picked up the copy of the June 2010 issue at our Stamford Yacht Club. Thank you for publishing such an interesting magazine. David Hubbard Stamford, Conn.

Needs Portsmouth current data I enjoyed Mike Pothier’s article, “Guide to the Lower Piscataqua,” (September 2007) and the reference to Tidelog.com. As a J/24 racer on Thursday nights I have been searching for detailed information on currents outside the mouth near “2KR” and Gunboat Shoal. The “Eldridge” has nice charts of currents for Long Island Sound and other places, but less detailed accounts for Portsmouth. The Tidelog.com website does not offer examples, so I am hoping you can help me understand what they offer. Are there detailed charts for the approach to the Piscataqua? You like their service, but I want to know if Tidelogs cover the area where I am racing. I could just try it, but as another “sailor with seven-day weekends,” I like to keep my cash close to home. Please tell me if you think their service may be helpful. Peter Terkow Harpswell, Maine. Mike Pothier responds: Thanks for the compliment about my article on the Piscataqua River. The short answer to your question is no. The Tidelog Northern New England Edition is strictly a databased tide log and does not include any nice diagrams like “Eldridge” does for Long Island Sound and Buzzards Bay areas. It does, however give time and speed corrections for currents from Odiornes Point all the way into the river, up to and beyond Dover Point, broken up into 32 distinct areas. For a cruising sailor, such as myself, this is more than adequate, but I can see where a racing sailor might want more detailed directional information. I am not aware of any other resource that diagrams the currents in this area. Maybe another Points East reader, or a former racer in this area, can help us out. Points East August 2010

What the badoodle is that breed? I wanted to send this picture along. I believe MerriMar Yacht Basin on the Merrimack River in Newburyport, Mass., was featured in a recent issue (“Hats Off to This Distribution Site,” July 2010). This picture is of our dogs Otis at the bow (he’s an olde English bulldog) and Ollie (she’s a “badoodle” – bulldog, dalmatian and poodle),and they are on the Merri-Mar Yacht Basin’s launch. Just another spring day at the yard for them, launching boats with Jay Lesynski, also in the picture to the left on the dock. They can be found hanging out in the sun on the docks or hard at work with Jay on the boat. Lisa Dahn Newburyport, Mass

Little girl, giant winch disturbing Nice cover this month (Rod Collins’ shot of his daughter Zozo on the July issue). However, though few things are certain in life, I guarantee someone will comment on those little girl’s fingers about to be crushed on that giant winch. David Roper Marblehead, Mass. Rod Collins responds: 1. Mom was just outside the photo holding her foot. 2. My winches are lubed, cleaned and rebuilt once per season, with new pawls and springs at each rebuild, religiously. 3. In my many years of sailing, over 35, I have never once had a winch pawl slip, ever. 4. Dad was also just outside the “photo op” ready in an instant. 5. Zoe also had a tether attached to the back of her vest, which can’t be seen in the photo. 6. She placed her hand lightly on the handle for about 15 seconds while I snapped the photo and was then taken off the rail. 7. It was a photo op: She does not sail sitting there unless well away from the winch and under the dodger with mom at her side. 8. The winds were less than 10 knots, perhaps a high of eight knots, and the winch still had three turns and a full self-tailing jaw 8

Points East August 2010

wrap. I can sail these up to 15-plus with two wraps and no slipping of the line with a worse ST jaw wrap. 9. I do not sail with my winch handles in. That was a simple short-duration photo op only. Hope this helps alleviate the fears of any potential helicopter parents. I’m sure this photo would also draw criticism from the nanny crowd, too. Some of us have higher levels of comfort on boats with our kids than others as we were once that 3-year-old on the boat. Zozo learned to walk on the boat and has better sea legs at three than most adults I know. I worry a lot more about the child molester in the Santa Claus suit at the mall than I do about her on our boat. Different strokes for different folks: I think this weekend we’ll stay home, pad her bedroom with egg-crate foam and make her wear an indoor helmet and some steel-toe shoes.

Reader reveres Duncan’s books I was saddened to hear of Roger Duncan’s passing (Final Passages, July 2010). In addition to owning his indispensable “Sailing in the Fog” and “Eastward” (a book that, in my opinion, offers the most realistic account of a cruise in Maine I’ve read), I own multiple copies of “A Cruising Guide to the New England Coast,” that have been published years apart. Reading prior years’ descriptions of familiar places has kept me occupied during those terrible, long, seemingly interminable winter months. Steve Muise Reading, Mass.

What is ‘Bristol condition?’ I have read in publications that a boat is in “Bristol condition.” What is it? What is the origin of the phrase? A dear friend, who just passed away, gave me a subscription to Points East, and I enjoy every issue. Don’t stop what you’re doing. Len Tatko Boca Grande, Fla. The editor responds: This is a good question, and I have gone to a Mystic Seaport publication, “Origins of Sea Terms,” to give you an authoritative answer. Bristol, or Bristol fashion, or Bristol condition means:“neat, clean, and in good condition – in a word, shipshape. The phrase stems from the days when Bristol, England, was a bustling port, and ships from there were renowned for this characteristic.” “The Sailor’s Illustrated Dictionary” by Thompson Lenfesty adds that “a great deal of the refurbishing of ships was done” in Bristol, and the workmanship there became the standard.

MYSTERY HARBOR/And th e winner is...

NO ONE – AGAIN. This is the second time this summer that editor Nim Marsh has been able to stump our readers with his selection of a Mystery Harbor. So, we’ll repeat our hard-and-fast rule: No new Mystery Harbor until the last one is guessed. But, in an effort to move this along, we’ve posted a second image of the same harbor above AND Nim has offered one of his classic obscure synonym hints as to the location of this place: Rock-signed-on And in case you’re reading this for the first time, here are the rules: If you can correctly identify this harbor, and you’re the first to do so, you will win a fine Points East designer yachting cap. To qualify, you have to tell us something about the harbor, such as how you recognized it and some reasons you like to hang out there. Send your answers to editor@pointseast.com or mail them to Editor, Points East Magazine, PO Box 1077, Portsmouth, NH 03802-1077.

Perspectives In search of simplicity he thousands of items of marine gear on the market today supposedly exist to allow us a myriad of choices to facilitate our ability to get away, go boating, relax and be happy. I wonder, though. Robert Bellah, one of today’s most influential sociologists and recipient of the National Humanities Medal from President Clinton, wrote: That happiness to be attained through limitless acquisition is denied by every religion and philosophy known, but it is preached by every American TV set. How much do we really need to acquire before these things eclipse the value and beauty of our original quest, which is often the simplicity of just going out on the water? Over a decade ago, way Downeast and lost in the densest of dungeon fog in my tiny sloop Chang Ho, I unwittingly sailed out of our modern world and into one man’s realm of true simplicity. Feeling my way close to the uninhabited shores of a deepwater river east of Roque Island, I had somehow veered off into a smaller, also uninhabited tributary, which led to a tiny, deepwater cove with room enough to float one boat. As Chang Ho and I rested at anchor next to an abandoned trapper’s shack, the fog lifted slightly, bringing to view a blurry outline of the shack and the dense woods around us. I was in awe of our isolation. I wondered how many decades ago that lone trapper was living here, and I wondered if anyone had been here since. The answer came immediately, for out of a tidal hole in the trees slid an ancient, 20-foot wooden canoe. I blinked hard and rubbed some fog dew from my eyelashes just to make sure. Standing in the stern was a lanky man in his 60s. His clothes were ragged. His long, thin hair was disheveled. From his precarious standing position, he took long, careful strokes with what must have been an eight-foot paddle, moving the slender craft easily and gracefully by, paying me no notice. He disappeared in the fog by the entrance to the cove. I wasn’t sure if I’d really seen anything; it had been a very long day lost in the fog,

T

imagining things that weren’t there. Several hours later, on the return tide, I watched the canoe re-enter the cove and then disappear into the tidal hole in the woods. The next morning, I rowed in and found a 20-acre pool circled by more dense woods. No sign of canoe. No sign of life. Then I spied something sticking out of the trees. It was the canoe. I eased the dinghy over closer. What the woods covered was a lean-to filled with firewood; ancient-looking cookware hung to its sides. Next to that was a big, stonerimmed campfire surrounded by handmade stools and chairs. When the dinghy touched the shore, it seemed as if the crunching sound would wake the universe. “Might as well stay for a bit.” The voice from the trees startled me. A hand reached out from the bushes. I handed him the bowline and stepped ashore. “I saw you in the canoe last evening,” I blurted. “Is this your land?” He moved silently to one of the handmade chairs, and motioned me to do the same. He sat and gently stroked a caterpillar that was inching along his outstretched arm. “Far as the eye can see,” came the reply finally. “How long do you stay here?” I asked, figuring it to be a weekend retreat. “All the time.” “All summer, then?” “All year.” I looked over at the lean-to and the Spartan supplies, thinking of the harsh Maine winters and how that would be impossible. “All year? Really? For how long have you been doing that?” “Thirty five years.” He winked at the caterpillar, and then looked up at me, a gentle smile on his face and a timeless look in his eyes. “Would you like to see the yurts?” “The yurts?” “Yes, the yurts.” We walked along a pine-needled carpeted path, over a stream, and through a flowering meadow. And

That happiness to be attained through limitless acquisition is denied by every religion and philosophy known, but it is preached by every American TV set. there, in the midst of a clearing in the pines, stood a gigantic structure comprised of three stacked concentric circles. It looked like an alien spaceship that had found its perfect landing spot in these remote woods. He lifted his arm toward it. “Know much about yurts?” he asked. My eyes were wide with amazement. I was speechless. “Guess not,” he continued. “Well, come on in and you soon will.” The outermost circle had a dirt floor. One section was filled with cords of neatly stacked firewood; the remaining area housed enough hand- and leg-powered drills, saws, and lathes to outfit a cabinet shop. “Built the whole thing with these simple human-powered tools; no need for electricity” he said. We walked up several steps and entered the next circle, which was the living unit. It was furnished with comfortable, hand-built chairs and couches. The floor was covered with felt pads and carpets. Books were shelved in every conceivable space. A long, low woodstove, used for both heating and cooking, jutted into the center of the living area. Another set of stairs led up into the middle circle, which was a sort of glass-rimmed cupola. It was the master bedroom. Perhaps 30 feet up, it commanded a spectacular view of the wilderness around us, which I now saw contained guest yurts, storage yurts, and even a yurt outhouse. Before me lay Yurtdom. The man spoke softly. “We need an enlightened time. A time when people truly question everything that is labeled ‘progress.’ We don’t take enough time

to look back at the wisdom of time. It’s so simple. We need to learn from the old and not be so quick to jump at the new for its very newness. The old is time-tested. The new is as fraught with the potential for disaster or chaos as it is with promise. “Take yurts: Yurts are ancient dwellings used by Mongolian pastoral nomads of Central Asia. They’ve stood the test of time. You’re standing in a perfect example. We need to take advantage of – and not forsake – all that history has taught us about ourselves and the way we live. You see, if we don’t look back at what we’ve learned in the past and apply that knowledge, we’ll make tragic mistakes in the future. We can’t just devour newness and new things.” I tried to look pensive and take all this into my tiny brain. “So we’ve got too much stuff,” I said finally. “Civilization, in the real sense, consists not in the multiplication of wants but in their deliberate reduction. This alone promotes happiness and contentment.” I was amazed by the thoughts of this wizard in the woods. “Did you just come up with that saying,” I asked. “Guy named Gandhi said it first,” he replied and smiled. Then he looked down and gently stroked something yellow on his arm. It was the caterpillar. And it was safe with him.

Abby Sunderland’s compelling adventure bby Sunderland is the American woman of 16 years who was attempting to be the youngest solo circumnavigator. She has impressive sailing credentials as a member of an impressively sailing-savvy family. Abby’s boat, Wild Eyes, was a 40-foot sloop specifically designed by Scott Jutson as a singlehanded vessel, and the boat had already been solo circumnavigated once. Abby was rescued after being dismasted in the southern Indian Ocean in weather reported to be 30-knot winds in 30-foot seas. Abby and Wild Eyes were in the national news for days. The story became a debate over her right to put herself at risk and her parents’ right to allow it or encourage it, then finally how is the cost of the rescue to be addressed. Let me put the debate on risk to rest. Abby was not a child, was sailing-experienced, and had every right to a sea voyage of her own definition. There is no evidence she was forced into the venture by her par-

ents, a fate too often occurring, witnessed by 17-year-old Robin Lee Graham in 1965 and 18-year-old Tania Aebi in 1985, both inexperienced to start and shoved offshore by their fathers. Graham retired to a Rocky Mountain hideaway, while Aebi matured into a first-class sailor and sailing writer. Abby’s brother had solo-circumnavigated while still in his teens a year before her attempt. The risks Abby faced are well known. They can be described by three words: “The Southern Ocean.� This is an open ocean around the globe, broken only by Cape Horn at 57 degrees south latitude, in the south latitude “roaring forties� and “ferocious fifties.� A parade of eastbound fronts bellow out of the west every three days like clockwork. It is a graveyard of singlehanded sailboats and, perhaps because of this fact, a popular challenge for solo sailors over the past quarter-century. When I accomplished my solo, nonstop circumnavigation in 1985-86, there were just two well docu-

mented such voyages, and 12 claimed. Following my record-breaking voyage of 150 days, one hour and seven minutes (solo with stops record was 159 days, and nonstop was 292 days), the French organized a nonstop race because they are used to owning all the singlehanded sailing records. Since then, close to a couple of hundred sailors have entered these races, and the fact that less than half of the starters have succeeded as finishers serves to emphasize the risk factor. As example, the highly competent and experienced Frenchwoman, Isabelle Autissier, was dismasted and rescued twice in the weather rages of the Southern Ocean. So 30 knots wind and 30-foot seas may not seem that highly threatening for these waters. But my experiences down there lead me to guess she was knocked down by one of the continually ravaging rogue waves. These monsters seem to occur more often over seamounts on the ocean bottom. I am one who celebrates Abby’s attempt and her achievement because I deeply believe that all of us are obligated by the gift of life to test the outer reach of our capabilities in some chosen way: physically, intellectually or emotionally. And that is exactly what Abby was doing. The cost of Abby’s rescue – I have read it was some

$200,000 – illustrates a debate of very different proportion. I do not believe a person attempting a challenge should do so with the assumption of being rescued from a failure at no personal cost. Some years ago, when the subject of responsibility for rescue costs was debated after several sailors needed it during a solo race, I made the point that a sailor should publish a legal document stating no rescue is wanted or expected. The point here is not that the solo sailor would refuse the rule of the sea that obligates one to help others in distress, but that he or she is taking on full responsibility for the outcome, good and bad. My feeling about the objective to be the youngest to accomplish a solo circumnavigation is that it can be, will be and is being carried too far. It leads to some ridiculous conclusions. I used to think a more reasonable challenge is to be the oldest – until I learned that Francis Chichester entered a solo transatlantic race when he was 70 and wandered in circles of confusion the very first day. Former record-breaking solo circumnavigator Dodge Morgan lives on, and sails out of, Snow Island, Maine.

PERSPECTIVE/Susa n

Over by

Women and sailing (not women who sail) chose not to title this “Women Who Sail,” although bless those who do. The reason this addresses women and sailing is I think there are others out there, like myself, who cruise on sailboats but do not sail them. There is a definite distinction. That is not to say I cannot handle Celebration, I can. I start and power down the engine and the electronics. I can and do man the radio. I can and I have stood night watches. If the jib sheets become entangled in our forward hatch when we tack, I go forward to set them free. I fetch wrenches, flashlights, screwdrivers, and the like. In the cockpit, my husband will call on me to “let off” on the main or the jib sheets, and I cheerfully put down my magazine/book or needlepoint and I do. I deploy the anchor and pick up the mooring lines – most of the time on the first pass (not an easy task when the tide is flowing at the bend in the Saco River we sometimes call home). I do brightwork and I fight mildew. I go to boat shows; in fact, I look forward to them. Mostly though, I

cruise, and this keeps my husband content. Several years ago, a friend of ours was eager to introduce his new girlfriend to me. “You,” she told me, “out of all of his friends who sail are the only wife who really likes it.” She marveled at the fact that I was almost always out on the water with my husband, whereas everyone else’s wife was usually busy elsewhere while their mates were out sailing with their buddies. I revisited this conversation a lot last summer as my husband and I cruised almost all of July and August. We hadn’t been able to grab this much time in about four or five years. What if I had been part of the extended group? My first experience with sailing had been disastrous. When my husband came home with a 23-foot trailer-sailer with a retractable keel, I thought sailing it would be like those sweet little jaunts on the borrowed Sunfish at my aunt’s New York lakefront cottage. He parked the new boat in our driveway, and I thought, How cool, a nice little bed and a porto-let; we’ll have lots of fun. I couldn’t wait to take it to Lake Winnipesaukee.

It was a beautiful summer day when we put it in the water. We cruised along the channel and then, bam! The crosswinds of Alton Bay hit us, and we heeled over off the clinometer. I saw the water rushing toward me, and I turned into a quivering mass of raw fear: “Make it stand up straight! Make it stop blowing over! Make it stop!” My husband, the engineer, immediately started looking for his wife because, surely, this sobbing wreck was not the same person who only seconds before had been saying how nice it was that after 20-plus years we finally had a mutually satisfying activity that did not have to involve one of our three children, now grown enough to follow their own pursuits. Where did that woman go? She was definitely gone with the wind. Once that boat heeled over, sailing no longer became a pleasurable experience for me. Instead, it took on the same cachet that flying has. I have to be medicated before I will board a plane. At the same time, I began thinking, He is going to divorce me. From the time I met Randy Overby, his dream was to own and live on a sailboat. What if I had let that be the end of it? I knew how much it meant to my husband to sail, and he really wanted me to sail with him. As finances allowed, we moved up. The daysailer didn’t even get a name. We moved up to a slow, stable in the water, 30-yearold Watkins 27. It would never win any races, but Finally got us where we wanted to go without a rail in the water. Over the years, we determined what made for comfortable sailing: center cockpit, full keel, and a ketch rather than a sloop rig. That became our goal as we neared retirement, or full-time cruising age. We had a wish list of three dream boats, and a

Hardin was one of them. Today, 15 years after that disastrous day on Alton Bay, we own Celebration, a 45-foot Hardin, and I feel safe cruising on this boat. I am a cruiser, though, and that’s okay with my husband. He likes the sailing part, but he likes the part I play, too. I go through the cruising guides and make decisions about where we will explore, and I explore with him. I have sat up on stormy nights beside him to make sure we haven’t dragged anchor, and I have been on deck helping to reset it those few times we have. We both monitor the marine forecasts, and if it’s too windy, and we don’t have to be somewhere, we don’t sail. We both do maintenance work. Other times he does maintenance work and I needlepoint. I learned to knit and make presents. I write letters to old friends who say they love to receive them. I have been privileged to see a whale come to satisfy its curiosity about humans not five feet from our stern. Off the coast of Nova Scotia, a pod of dolphins materialized out of dense fog and played leapfrog in the wake of our boat. Too mesmerized to grab a camera, we were grateful to have each other to bear witness to what we’d seen. So to those women who love men who love to sail and who hate sailing, I encourage you to hang on. You could adapt. Some men aren’t necessarily looking for a woman who sails. They may just be looking for a cruiser. Celebration is my boat, too. I just don’t sail it. Susan Overby and her husband, Randy, a retired Navy officer, have sailed as far as Summerside on Prince Edward Island from their home port of Portsmouth, N.H. When not sailing, she is a highschool history teacher, which she loves doing as much as cruising.

Maine slashes nonresident sales tax Maine Governor John E. Baldacci signed LD 659, “An Act to Reduce the Sales Tax on Certain Watercraft,” into law this spring, enabling nonresident boaters to pay considerably less in sales tax on their boat purchases in Maine. The new law, which takes effect on Aug. 1, significantly reduces the amount of Maine sales tax that will need to be paid by nonresidents who purchase and keep a boat in Maine. Before the passage of LD 659, nonresidents who bought a boat in Maine were required to pay the prevailing sales tax (currently five percent) if they wanted to use the boat in state for more than 30 days. Also, nonresidents who used their boats in Maine during their first year of ownership were subject to the use tax if no sales tax had been paid in another jurisdiction. The new law effectively brings the tax rate down to just two percent. FMI: www.mainemarinetrades.com.

Mittens are portable, they’re quick to knit, and their various styles covered the full spectrum of the passengers’ knitting skills. Our beginners chose fingerless mitts; intermediate knitters selected my Sniffle Mitts (mittens with pockets on the dorsal side to hold tissues); and the more experienced knitters worked on multicolored Scandinavian mittens. While preparing the curriculum for the cruise, I reviewed the passenger list and noticed that Elizabeth (the cruise coordinator) had written, “She’s a knitter; he’s notâ€? after couples’ names.

looking for an excuse to socialize in the warm galley while the mist chilled those on deck? I’d like to believe that their desire to knit had something to do with the practical, productive and calming aspects of the craft, but I’m not entirely sure about that. I will confess that – as I taught these gentlemen how to cast on, knit, and cast off – I thought about the following passage in Richard Rutt’s “A History of Hand Knitting”: “Knitting was taught to boys in kindergartens, and by mothers and aunts. The purpose was usually either to keep hyperactive boys quiet or to respond to their insistent demands to be shown how knitting was done” Learning to knit can be a challenge, but it is also addictive, which motivates new knitters to persevere. Bo, a deckhand and a knitting newbie, was mesmerized by the stitches he produced with brown tweedy yarn and two pointy sticks. When one of the passengers asked him, “Where are we?” Bo looked up, looked around, and replied “I don’t know. I’ve been knitting!” Fortunately, he was not on navigation duty at the time. My partner Paul has exhibited no interest in learning to knit. Nevertheless, he was keen to share his knowledge of fiber with the other passengers. I overeditor@pointseast.com

Above: On the second day of the dedicated knitters’ cruise, the wool warriors take advantage of the fair weather and work their newly honed magic on deck. Below: Pinky, the patron saint of nautical knitters, is in the zone as the Riggins sails across Penobscott Bay.

Qiviut (KEE -VEE – ut), is fiber from the undercoat of a musk ox. Qiviut is softer than cashmere and, according to Clara Parkes’ “Book of Yarn,” “eight times warmer than wool.” It is also a useful Scrabble word. We sailed for three days, occasionally looking up from our projects to view harbor seals, porpoises, a sun dog (a rainbow-like halo around the sun), and the craggy coast outlining Penobscot Bay. On our first night, we dropped anchor at Bucksport harbor, a quiet and cozy cove. The next morning, the prevailing winds made it necessary to tack back and forth on our way to Owls Head harbor. This added to the excitement of the journey, and kept us busy as we moved to the lee side for stability each time the 28 Points East August 2010

crew shouted, “Coming about.” By the end of the cruise, we had a wonderful collection of knitted (and partially knitted) items, including a pair of cabled mittens (which passenger Pinky gifted to deckhand Scott), a hat (knit by a nonconformist on our mitten-knittin’ adventure), and a small garterstitch square (which served as an eye-patch when we were feeling pirate-like). We also learned some useful tricks, such as how the neck of a wine bottle can serve as a darning egg when repairing worn-out mitten thumbs, how to cut one’s knitting to fix a mistake (and how to survive that scary process), and how useful it can be to know the length of one’s finger when there’s no ruler handy. (Pinky’s pinkie is two editor@pointseast.com


inches long. We think a new measurement system might be on the horizon.) All knitting aside, one of the more memorable experiences of the cruise occurred on the last night, when we sat on deck in the glow of the kerosene lanterns listening to the crew serenade us: Annie sang sea chanteys, while Jon accompanied her on his guitar; Toni sang a beautiful rendition of “The Very Thought Of You;” Scott and Bo improvised on some blues tunes; and Jenny (aka “Coleslaw”) harmonized. The soft rocking of the boat and the sweet music created a lovely sendoff to slumberland, or – in the words of Shakespeare – “Sleep that knits up the ravell’d sleave of care.” Ellen Rodgers was born in Portland, Maine, and learned to knit when she was 11. When she was young and foolish she couldn’t wait to escape from Maine, so she studied Chinese and moved to Beijing. Later, she lived in Hong Kong, Hanoi, and New York City, where she did fancypants corporate stuff that wasn’t nearly as satisfying as knitting. When she was older and wiser, she couldn’t wait to return to Maine, so she moved to Brunswick and opened Purl Diva Yarn Shop (www.purldiva.com). Paul Mirto, (www.mirtoimages.com) took the photos.

This ICW vet chose a southern New England cruise over one to Maine because she doesn’t like fog and rocks. She doesn’t regret her choice. Story and photos by Pamela Mormino For Points East est, relaxation, fun and adventure were the goals of our two-week trip from Mystic, Conn., to Boston and Provincetown and other places along the way. I’m happy to say our goals were met, and then some, while we did have to be flexible on our ports of call. My husband has been urging (browbeating?) me to agree to a trip to Maine. Since I’m not a fan of fog and rocks, I continue to resist, but I did agree to a trip up the East Coast as far as Boston in our Hunter 37.5 sailboat, Just Ducky.

We caught the flood tide in the 17.4mile Cape Cod Canal on our way to Plymouth. It’s always fun for sailors to go through “the Ditch” at nine to 10 knots.

Our first stop is one of my alltime favorites, Block Island R.I. We are just a daysail away, and we go there every year, but this time we started our season at Block. We’ve been there in just about every weather condition, but this year the weather was in the high 60s-low 70s and sunny, with moderate winds from the south and southwest. Also, having the outgoing tide pushing us, the sail over was perfect, and for a change the wind was not on our nose. We didn’t even have to tack. Although it was Race Week, it was the “even-year,” meaning a smaller crowd, so getting a mooring was a piece of cake. Since we’ve gotten so used to the anchorage, we were more than pleasantly surprised. Did I mention it was midJune and midweek? Thunderstorms during the night made us glad to be on a mooring and we woke to glorious sunshine. In all of the years we have been coming to Block, we’ve never had breakfast a la Aldo’s Bakery, but this being our 43rd wedding anniversary, we decided to splurge. We heard his clarion call, “Andiamo,” and he motored up to our boat with an array of breakfast goodies. Hot pastry was the choice of the day. Later on shore, Block was a perfect spot to celebrate our anniversary, with champagne at the National Hotel. We also were rewarded with a beautiful sunset. We continued on to Cuttyhunk for the next leg of our trip. We had good winds for half of the trip and then were able to sail in gentle winds. After our Intracoastal Waterway trip, when we were the slowest “powerboat” in the waterway, it was great to be able to sail. Getting there in time to place our order for lobster was a top priority. We shared the mooring field with about a dozen other boats. A quick tour of the island brought us up to date on changes made in the past few years – none. Even the rawbar boat still made its rounds of editor@pointseast.com


the boats each evening. There is the Cuttyhunk Fishing Club, which is a B&B that serves breakfast to everyone, but we didn’t try it. The island remains the quaint, unspoiled island we hoped it would be. And the lobster was steamed to perfection. The winds were not as cooperative for our 22-mile trip up Buzzards Bay to Kingman Yacht Marina in Red Brook Harbor, so we motored all the way. The harbor itself is pretty tricky and shallow if you stray, so attention to the channel markers was really important (hug the green markers at low tide). The harbor was busy on this beautiful sunny Saturday in June, and it was great to see so many boats being used. In the evening, we ran the engine for a while and suddenly heard a loud flapping noise. We quickly killed the engine and found a shredded alternator belt. The handy Yanmar spare-parts kit that takes up the room of a small child was welcomed as we changed the belt. My husband reminds me all the time that “we” doesn’t really describe who is actually doing the work, but I have to at least think I’m contributing. We were well positioned to go through the 17.4-mile Cape Cod Canal the next morning, and we caught the flood tide on our way to Plymouth. It’s always fun for sailors to go through “the Ditch” at 9 to 10 knots. It also crossed our minds that it was fortunate the belt broke at the mooring instead of as we were going through the canal. This time the “we” was accurate. Sails went up outside the canal, and a great sail became a challenging one as we turned slightly toward Plymouth and the winds turned up a few notches to 15 to 20 knots. We reefed the main and took down the headsail, but still cruised along at about 6.5 knots as we faced another tricky harbor. After reading all of the “don’ts” in www.pointseast.com

A tour of Mayflower II was in order as was Pilgrim Hall, Jenney Grist Mill and, of course, Plymouth Rock, which we actually couldn’t see due to construction.

American History and a good choice of libations, too. Plymouth is a great walk-around town, and walk we did. The sightseeing trolley was not running, and the other tour was off for a few days, so we really didn’t have a choice. A tour of the Mayflower was in order as was Pilgrim Hall, Jenney Grist Mill and, of course, Plymouth Rock. We actually couldn’t see Plymouth Rock due to construction, but took it on faith that it was really there. We skipped Plymouth Plantation since we’d been there before, but it’s a great choice for first time visitors. We worked off some serious calories that assisted in managing the great seafood dinner at the Weathervane Seafood Restaurant on Town Wharf. We were prepared to stay two nights at Brewer’s Plymouth Marina, but Mother Nature had other ideas. So, with forecasts of rain, thunderstorms, hail and winds up to 30 knots, we stayed for another day. We felt silly changing our plans as we woke to sunny skies, but our decision to stay was validated about 11 a.m. as the storms started rolling through. It turned out to be a relaxing day filled with good books, wine and homemade bread. The bread is another of those “we� things; Mat bakes and I eat. The weather was better in the morning, with light winds that slowly brought us up the coast to Boston. CRUISE, continued on Page 36

CRUISE, continued from Page 34 There is a special feeling being out on the water alone without other boats, but there is also a special feeling coming into a busy harbor. Going from solitude to hustle-bustle is invigorating. We traveled up the harbor, arriving at Charlestown’s Constitution Marina early in the afternoon with enough time to check in and start exploring the immediate area anyway. Visiting the USS Constitution was fun as was going up to Bunker Hill and feeling and seeing the history. Lunch was at the Warren Tavern, where both Washington and Paul Revere reportedly dined. We followed the Freedom Trail through Historic Boston from “Old Ironsides” to Faneuil Hall, ending the sightseeing at Quincy Market for some shopping. We headed back to the boat to rest a bit and change for dinner at Fiore’s in Little Italy. What great food and ambience! Spending a few days in the city was fun and exciting for us suburbanites. Weather was not on our side as we left Boston, and Provincetown was not in the cards. Continued threats

36 Points East August 2010

of thunderstorms, high winds and hail caused us to change our plans and head for Sandwich, right at the entrance to the Cape Cod Canal. Slip fees were reasonable, with fuel available and some reprovisioning opportunities a third of a mile away. This is a great spot for a bit of fishing or just watching the boats go through the canal. We woke up to a morning haze, but after it cleared had a beautiful, sunny day with gentle breezes out of the southwest. Where were those storms, anyway, we thought? We decided to return to Cuttyhunk for the day to decide where to head off to next in light of the continued dire weather predictions. Let me add here that we are a bit cautious since we learned from past experience being out on the water for two weeks with almost two weeks of rain does not make for a grand vacation – memorable maybe, but not great. Since Provincetown was out, we decided to take a mooring in Jamestown, R.I., with easy access to Newport, one of our favorite haunts. We always enjoy a mix of moorings, anchoring and marinas when we travel. They all have something different to offer from

watching the sun rise and set, enjoying the solitude to making new friends in the marinas. So a mooring at Conanicut Marina in Jamestown was in order, right along the Newport Bridge. We always enjoy walking around in Jamestown, and take the main street across to Dutch Harbor. It looked like our aim was to wear out those walking shoes. We took the ferry to Newport, stopping off at the America’s Cup museum and Fort Adams. Our timing was off to be able to get off at Rose Island as the nesting birds could not be disturbed. Lunch in Newport is always an adventure and this time we chose The Red Parrot, a great choice. As we walked along America’s Cup Boulevard, my cell phone rang. It was my son from San Antonio announcing the birth of our newest grandson: Great news to end a perfect day. We were able to meet friends there who we’d met on our trip south on the ICW, and we ended the day watching the sailing races – Tuesday night is Race Night in Jamestown – with the finish line not far from our boat. Our time was growing short as we approached the Fourth of July weekend, so we decided to head home after a couple of days in Jamestown. So what happened? We awoke to thick fog, which even obscured the Newport Bridge. Our proposed early start was delayed until the fog lifted enough to be able to see and sail safely. Coming out of Narragansett Bay, running

around to Point Judith, was rough sailing as always as we made our way back to Long Island Sound and our homeport of Mystic. Traveling is one of my greatest pleasures; coming home is another. Pam and her husband, Mat, started sailing after their kids “left the nest” about 19 years ago. Four boats later, they now have Just Ducky and love her. They learned to sail in the Chesapeake, and have sailed in the Carribean, Greece, Spain, up the Hudson, all over New England, and they took their boat to Marathon, Fla., for the winter. Plans for this summer include sailing in local waters, and Just Ducky may even make it to Maine.

Trouble

Growltiger had passed survey and sea trials a month previously with no visible indication of steering-cylinder misalignment or ball-joint problems. In fairness to the surveyor, there was no way he could have seen the fracture without disconnecting and removing, then examining some key components.

Running at 12 knots, we would be through the falls in less than five minutes, but still we were being exceedingly cautious. As it turned out, not cautious enough.

longer cruise to the St. John River in New Brunswick was in order. We’d use this cruise to familiarize ourselves further with the boat’s systems and riding characteristics under more severe conditions than we’d yet encountered. After planning our route, we left our home port of Southwest Harbor, Maine, and headed east to Cutler. In Cutler, we spent the evening calculating the time we wanted to enter the Reversing Falls above Saint John Harbor the following day, using Roger Duncan’s and John Ware’s A Cruising Guide to the New

www.pointseast.com

England Coast as a reference. The falls develops dangerously turbulent water during the tidal cycle, and there are periods when transit is impossible. We understood there is roughly a 20-minute window on either side of slack water during which the falls are considered to be navigable for a small boat such as ours. We wanted to be at Split Rock, at the southern entrance to the falls, at low slack so there would be a minimal flood current running during our traverse. According to the cruising guide, the time to be at Split Rock was three hours and 50 minutes af-

My first reaction was to back and fill, using forward and reverse to keep the bow pointed in the direction we wanted to go and hoping the flood current would carry us forward through the falls. ter low water at Saint John. We arrived at the town dock in Saint John Harbor, a mile or so from Split Rock, in the early afternoon, about two hours before the time we wanted to enter the falls. There, also waiting to go through the falls, were Gerry and Pat Peer aboard s/v Keloose. Unbeknownst to us at the time, Gerry was the author of the section on the Reversing Falls in Duncan and Ware’s cruising guide. We compared notes with the Peers, who said there were no recent weather events to cause unusually high or low tides and that our departure-time estimate, three hours and 50-minutes later, was appropriate. Our goal was to be at Split Rock about 10 minutes before low slack so we could spend some time observing the water action and see the cessation of the ebb as the water stopped flowing out of the river past the rock. This was our first time through the falls, and we were doing the run in a boat that was relatively new to us. Running at 12 knots, we would be through the

falls in less than five minutes, but still we were being exceedingly cautious. As it turned out, we were not cautious enough. We entered the falls at slack, although there was still considerable eddy activity requiring constant and rapid movement of the wheel to port and starboard to stay on course. One minute into the falls, we lost steering (Figure 1). My first reaction was to back and fill, using forward and reverse to keep the bow pointed in the direction we wanted to go and hoping the flood current would carry us forward through the falls. When I first shifted into reverse, there was a terrible clunking sound. The rudder had swung into the propeller, rendering our engine useless. Now we had neither steering nor effective power. I then thought about anchoring. Depths in the falls are considerable right up to the shore, so there would be little opporTROUBLE, continued on Page 49

tunity to anchor unless, somehow, we could get close to the shoreline. Additionally, there was no place to tie up. We would have to depend on luck, which, as it turned out, we seemed to have plenty of. Out of nowhere, small outboard powered fishing boat appeared. The captain saw our dilemma and offered to tow us through the falls to quiet water. We gladly accepted the tow, which was uneventful. Shortly afterwards, Gerry and Pam appeared in Keloose. They offered to tow us to the Royal Kennebeccasis Yacht Club (RKYC), a few miles upstream, where we could be hauled to assess and repair any damage. When we arrived at the RKYC, Gerry and Pam introduced us to yard manager Bob Barnes and his wife, Karen, who put us in contact with mechanic, John Connors. John, in addition to providing mechanical service, would supervise and coordinate the project. The following morning, Bob lifted our stern with the yard crane to get a look at the prop. All four blades were severely bent and distorted. The prop would have to be removed and reconditioned at a prop shop in St. John. The rudder was not damaged. Our steering system consists of a hydraulic cylinder, telescopic output arm and ball joint end that is attached to a tiller (See page 50, Figure 2). When I examined the system, I found that the ring of the ball joint connecting the output arm to the tiller had fractured (Figure 3), and the output arm and joint became completely disengaged from the tiller (Figure 4). Since there was no preventer or stop on the tiller or rudder shaft, the rudder was free to swing into the revolving prop when the transmission was placed in reverse. The ball joint failed because the hydraulic cylinder was mounted on its bulkhead in such a way that it was not able to swing freely www.pointseast.com

through its entire range of motion. This resulted in the joint’s ring being placed under severe stress for several years, and it eventually succumbed to metal fatigue.

Because the yard’s marine railway was in use and their crane was not large enough to haul Growltiger completely out of the water, John called in a con-

struction company’s crane to haul her and set her on stands. John removed the prop and drove it to Saint John for repair. In the meantime, we replaced the damaged ball joint and installed a chain rudder preventer. We also placed an extra-large washer under the ball joint to prevent it from falling free from the tiller should the joint ever be damaged again. Twenty-four hours later, John returned to the yard with the reconditioned prop, mounted it, and Growltiger was launched. The entire job, from start to finish, was accomplished in 48 hours. The efficiency of the repair crew and hospitality of the RKYC cannot be overstated. In retrospect, there are a couple of things we should have known and done. We should have been more familiar with the steering system. Upon losing steering, we should have first looked in the steering compartment. Had we done so, we would have seen the separation of the output arm from the tiller, and one of us could have controlled the tiller and rudder manually. We should have been aware that there was no rudder preventer or stop. Growltiger had passed survey and sea trials a month previously with no visible indication of steering-cylinder misalignment or ball-joint problems. The ball-joint ring was hidden from view below the tiller. In fairness to the surveyor, even if the fracture had

190 Outrage

been present at the time of survey, there was no way he could have seen it without disconnecting the ball joint from the tiller, removing the joint, and examining it. Then, if no gross defects had been apparent, the surveyor would have had to apply crack-disclosing solution, all of which, I think, are not part of standard pre-purchase survey procedure for a motor yacht. The slight misalignment of the hydraulic-cylinder mounting and tiller could not be seen nor could it be felt at the helm. The day after the job was completed, we left the yacht club and continued up the St. John River, spending a glorious week exploring its beautiful islands, lakes, coves, tributaries and bays, but that is another story. The following year, to be sure we hadn’t lost our nerve, we sailed back to St. John and through the Falls with a remounted hydraulic steering cylinder and rudder preventer, and enjoyed another cruise up that magnificent river to Fredericton. That cruise, too, is another story. Todd Beckerman and his wife, JoAnne, are both retired 100-Ton Masters Licensees living in Southwest Harbor, Maine.

THERACIN GMORA logs exciting early season action

Ida Lewis Distance Race starts Aug. 20

Gulf of Maine Ocean Racing Association (GMORA) racers took a break for the Fourth of July holiday, after three straight weekends of some great racing in all kinds of conditions. The Harraseeket Regatta pursuit race, off Freeport, Maine, on June 26, started with a nice southerly breeze for boats beating out Broad Sound to the Whaleboat gong. It continued for the reach to the northern tip of Upper Goose. Unfortunately, things got a bit flukey for the return to the start-finish line, and only five boats finished before the time expired at 1600. Congratulations to Bill and Annette Newberry and the crew of County Girl, who took the gun and won Racing Class A. Second place went to Keemah, and 3rd to Big Dog Party. Congrats also to Phoenix and Family Wagon for getting across the line before time expired. Big Dog Party, Greyhawk, and Rita P won their respective divisions at the Centerboard Regatta off South Portland, Maine, June 19-20. Thanks go to Mother Nature, who finally provided us with some breeze and held off the rain for the duration of the race. Our biggest thanks go to the volunteers at CYC, who once again provided us with a great race, good food, and fine entertainment with the band For Pete’s Sake. The SailMaine Shakedown Regatta in Portland Harbor on June 15 saw Big Dog Party, Keemah, Girl Talk, and Fiddler’s Green win their respective classes. The regatta organizers put on some great races, along with a memorable party with tasty food and fun entertainment. For complete GMORA results visit www.gmora.com.

The IMX 45 Temptress (above) beats out of the mouth of Narragansett Bay during the 2009 Ida Lewis Distance Race. The ILDR fleet (left) labors on a windward leg. The race, which starts Aug. 20, includes turning marks at Castle Hill, Brenton Reef, Block Island, Montauk Point, Martha’s Vineyard and Buzzards Tower on its way to a finish off the Ida Lewis Yacht Club. With 40 teams competing last year, organizers are planning for between 40-50 this year. The event is open to boats 28 feet and longer and is a qualifier for the 2010 New England Lighthouse Series, Northern and Double-Handed Ocean Racing Trophies, and the US-IRC Gulf Stream Series.

The New York Yacht Club’s 156th Annual Regatta June 11-13, saw more than 1,000 sailors on 111 boats from the U.S. and Europe race for three days on Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound. The start to the weekend was the Around the (Conanicut) Island Race on Friday, which is scored separately from the Saturday/Sunday races. George David’s (Hartford, Conn.) custom maxi Rambler took line honors, finishing the 19-mile course in two hours, 10 minutes. However, Titan 15, a Reichel/Pugh 75 owned by Tom Hill (Puerto Rico) finished in 1st on corrected time. On Saturday and Sunday, six IRC classes, including Classics, 12 Meters, 6 Meters, J/105s and NYYC Swan 42s, raced. In IRC 1, Bella Mente won three of four races and took the overall title. Sforzando, Blair Brown’s (Padanaram, Mass.)

Her tardy finish means that her cook, Jake Kramer, will be presented with one of the race’s oldest and most famous prizes, the Galley Slave Trophy for the cook of the last boat to finish. When Scott Bearse saw that his Slide Rule, a First 44.7 out of West Barnstable, Mass., was listed as winning Class 4 under the IRC Rule, he chased down race committee chairman Bjorn Johnson and told him something was wrong. “I sailed a good 4th-place race, not a 1st-place race,” Bearse explained. A small error

was discovered that gave Slide Rule a better rating than she deserved. When the mistake was corrected, Slide Rule ended up 3rd in IRC in Class 4. The St. David’s Lighthouse Trophy for the top amateur boat went to Carina, owned by Rives Potts (Westbrook, Conn.), the second time Carina has won this trophy. The Carleton Mitchell Finisterre Trophy, named for the winner of three consecutive Bermuda Races, was won by the winner of the Cruiser Division, Neal Finnegan’s Clover III (Dedham, Mass.). The Corporation of Hamilton Prize for first boat to finish went to Speedboat, owned by Alex Jackson (Riverside, Conn.). Complete results are on www.bermudarace.com. John Rousmaniere

Responding to requests from competitors, the organizers of the C.

This move should result in not only more boats on the starting line, but also a more challenging level of competition in these fleets. FMI: clagettregatta.org

MEDIA/Resources for cr u isers

70th birthday present was ICW cruise in a catboat Tales of the Intracoastal Waterway By Roland S. Barth, The Catboat Association Press, 112 pp., $15.

Reviewed by Sandy Marsters For Points East Most of us are not great adventurers. We prefer the easy, predictable rhythms of daily life. We understand the value of risk and challenge, but most of us do not look forward to fear, extreme discomfort, injury, and ordeal. We take our risk in small doses: social interactions, family matters, professional challenges, games, visits to the dentist, long drives. Still, we dream, and I wonder what it would be like to climb that mountain, to cross that sea, to hike the Appalachian Trail, to wander through the land and culture of some distant and unfamiliar civilization. By any standard, in his 69 years of life Roland Barth excelled at meeting the challenges of everyday life: He has written eight books, received a Guggenheim Fellowship, run a public school, and taught at Harvard. A life well and fully lived. Except for one thing: He hadn’t sailed a small boat along the length of the East Coast’s Intracoastal Waterway. So on Feb. 7, 2007, Barth wrote to his friends that he would give himself a 70th birthday present: “To fulfill my lifetime dream and sail the waters between Florida and New England.” And so he did, and he’s written about the adventure in a fun little book called “Tales of the Intracoastal Waterway,” published this

WINTER ISLAND Y AC H T Y A R D INC.

year by the Catboat Association Press. Barth had already done plenty of sailing in his home states of Florida and Maine. Now he wanted to connect the dots. The inspiration for the cruise was a wonderful book that has been mentioned on these pages many times before, Henry Plummer’s “The Boy, Me and The Cat.” First published in 1914 in a limited edition of 700 copies (I happen to own one, which I found among my father’s belongings after his death), the book recounts a cruise along the East Coast (there was not yet an Intracoastal Waterway) between October and February of 1912. Aboard the 24-foot catboat Mascot were Plummer, his son, also Henry, and their cat, Scotty. Plummer’s book is not great literature. It is the ship’s log, but written with insight, wry wit, and great appreciation for the people and places that make up the Eastern Seaboard. Its appeal is its simple honesty and modesty. “This cruise was undertaken on my part as rest for a set of frazzled nerves and tired eyes and to limber up a back slowly recovering from an old-time injury,” Plummer writes in the preface. “Henry and Scotty went just naturally cause they had to.” For his tale, Barth uses the letters he sent to family and friends during the cruise as his basic text, supREVIEW, continued on Page 62

REVIEW, continued from Page 60 plemented by observations from the cast of nine crew who joined him at various stages of the trip for a few days each, including first mate Barbara. Time with crew complicated the challenge of living aboard the 17-foot Ibis. “Suffocating,” one crew member called it. But long hours in the cockpit also gave rise to that wonderful quality of conversation and thought that only seems to happen on boats, “the rare opportunities to give voice to opinions, aspirations, and concerns...hitherto discussed with no one,” as the same suffocated crewmember explained. Crew also came in handy when things got dicey on the little boat, as they did approaching Cuttyhunk near the end of the voyage, where Barth and crew found themselves in serious danger as heavy winds and seas beat up the over-canvassed catboat in Rhode Island Sound. Without crew, time alone on the boat between crew visits left plenty of time for reflection and contemplation. On loneliness and solitude: “The former is a bad feeling of being alone when you don’t want to be alone. The latter is a rather good feeling of being alone when you do want to be alone...I have been enjoying my solitude. Time for reverie, reflection, contemplation, wonderment. Call it what you will, solitude has been another gift of my time on the waterway.” And, of course, there was the milestone of his 70th year to consider. “These daily and dramatic contrasts between clearly delimited ends and unbounded expanses give me much to ponder,” Barth concludes. “Rather parallel with my life’s journey. For years, my days and years have seemed endless. Now, the onset of each new limitation clearly lets me know that life is moving relentlessly toward an end. There are many more solid

ervices

posts to tie up to at the end of more days, I trust, but not as many now as there were when I cast off.”

Another book of note “The Yacht Insider’s Guide to New England” is a new guide to Yachting Services along our coast, from Mount Desert Island in Maine to Essex in Connecticut. It offers a colorful, handy resource for everyday cruisers as well as the crews of visiting megayachts. The project is the creation of Anne Vandromme-Hood, daughter-in-law of the legendary designer Ted Hood, published by Shorelink Publications in Newport, R.I. The book is free, distributed at marinas and major yachting events. This is the second edition. There is a similar guide to the Balearic Islands, wherever they are. The New England guide is an easily navigated and exhaustive listing of everything a cruiser might need in popular harbors during a New England cruise. And even if you never need the directory, you will want to keep it aboard for the outstanding photography of Billy Black. The book is closely integrated with a website at yachtinsidersguide.com. Sandy Marsters, along with Bernie Wideman, is cofounder of Points East and our book reviewer.

POETRY/J . Vincent Duga s

Photos by Nim Marsh

Our own summertime That railroad . . . the shining rails that never met; yet far beyond my world they ran. The days of youth stamped out as pennies, Shined long by the wheels of a train. Was it a penny, or more? Perhaps a dime . . . Whatever we could spare. Then, off to another summer game for fun and dare. Grasses and shrubs were clean and friendly. And were places to crawl and hide and play war. One never thought of nature’s own soldiers, Lying in wait for their turn, And so many of us were bitten then, By the insects we dread today. Mosquitoes bit, ticks bit, bugs of all kinds bit, But still we held our ground. Some of us just got sick, some of us may have died, But still nobody knew or thought to look, In the patches of grass we played and for granted took. Poison ivy, sumac, oak, our worst enemies, Always there, but easily known to a veteran of backyard wars. A scream of terror signaled no fierce foe, Just a shuffling skunk crossing our field of fire. Summer wars were fun, with new friends and foes each day, All subject to time-out, for our wars just stopped, When our moms called us home. A bubble of road tar flashing in the sunlight: “Come pick me up, come pick me up,” it called. One could roll the liquid tar into little balls, then into larger ones, Then spend many days trying to find pink skin again. Distant voices and playful screams lofting up from the beach, Across summer lawns. www.pointseast.com

With eyes closed, the scene of the swimming beach, Paints itself across your mind. Are you missing something? Perhaps . . . the urge to run to the ocean once more, And frolic with everyone there. Those bloodcurdling screams by silly girls, Tossed from the raft by sillier boys. A seasoned scream, then a splash; A din of voices always followed, Then, a parent, calling someone home. The nearby drone of an outboard, And a light wispy smell of that blue exhaust. The bounce and joggle of a diving board . . . a splash, The slapping of rope halyards against a wooden mast, Then silence as the wind fills the sails, And quiets the rigging of this unseen vessel. The smell of wetness from bathing suits, towels, a wet dog. And sand? Between your toes and in your shoes and all that it touched. The awfully uncomfortable but still sweet memory of bare feet on a sandy car floor, The icky feeling of an outside shower on wet soapy grass, While dreaming of a hot shower and the absence of sand. Lightning bugs, the evening’s own glitter, There, and then gone, chased by children to bottle and glow, The magic signals of tiny shadow people,

sleeping porch and the earwigs, old wives’ tales of them eating your brain, cotton wads stuffed tightly into your ears to keep them at bay, cold terror upon finding one in your hair.

Then . . . clean and in sand-free socks and sneakers, A shirt with no salt itch. The smell of Noxzema, calamine, and that feeling, That a bit too much sun was indeed a bit too much, Tingling skin, the sandy bed sheets, the summer chills. Without warning, a stranger takes your hand. Fatigue is her name. You collapse in her arms and gasp your last breath of the day, For tomorrow is but hours away. We’d all been too busy to keep summer from fall, and now, September was our time of capture, The fruits of our summer forever to be dreamed only to ourselves, For we are all approaching the end of . . . our own summertime. At seven, on the shores of Bristol, RI, J. Vincent Dugas’ first boat was an 11-foot wooden skiff rebuilt by his dad. Then, an flat-bottomed marconi-rigged sailboat, and on and on through Beetle Cats, sloops, a 58-foot staysail schooner, an Islander 29, an

Islander 37, and a North Star 47 sloop. All of these, or any one of them, was his vehicle to wander and weigh the beaches, coves, bays and seas of the Northeast. A published author, he lives with his wife Pat in Portsmouth, R.I.

YARDWORK/People and pro jects

North Rip 21 appears to be one tough mighty-mite A North Rip 21 sportfishing boat was launched late in June by Pearson Marine Group in Warren, R.I. Three larger North Rip models are in development. Billed as a heavy-weather “pocket battlewagon,” the North Rip 21 has a deepvee hull and broad, flared “Carolina” bow, which, the builder claims, “lets anglers reach distant hot spots with more speed, comfort and dryness than are delivered by other boats in this size range.” Maximum power is a single 200-horsepower outboard that drives the NR 21 at approximately 50 mph with wide-open throttle, providing a 185-mile range with the standard 90-gallon fuel tank. The North Rip’s 360-degree fishability is evident with rod clearance even around the motor well, recessed hardware, and lack of obstructions. Toe-space under the gunnels lets you brace comfortably when playing fish. Oversized gutters and scuppers quickly clear the self-draining cockpit. In designing a dedi-

Briefly Dolphin Marina in South Harpswell, Maine, received Clean Marina Designation on National Marina Day June 11. The Saxton family of Dolphin Marina and Restaurant held a celebration, with exhibits by the Coast Guard Auxiliary, Friends of Casco Bay, Maine Island Trails Association, Coastal Conservation Association and the Maine Clean Boatyards & Marinas Program. The U.S. Coast Guard gave tours on one of its icebreaking vessels, and local tour boat, the Marie L, and two TowBoat US boats also attended the event. FMI: www.mainemarinetrades.com/clean_marinas.

West Marine, in Middletown, R.I., hosted a grand opening of its new Newport County Flagship Store at 379 West Main Road on June 10. At 23,000 square feet, the biggest West Marine in New England, it features the largest marine electronics display in New England. Customers can test over 150 live marine network displays, fishfinders and VHF radios from numerous electronics manufacturers. The Middletown store also will have more sail hardware, anchor, docking, electrical, plumbing and maintenance products than any West Marine in the country. FMI: www.westmarine.com.

Samoset Boatworks, Inc. of Boothbay, Maine, will launch in September the Marblehead 22 one design, the latest sailboat off the board of Doug Zurn’s office. The Marblehead 22 was conceived as a moderately built, high-performance daysailer, using 3-D computer modeling and the latest advancements in cold-molded construction techniques. The result, the designer says, is the charm of a traditional wooden boat without the upkeep, plus speed and stability. Specifications: LOA 22’ 9”, LWL 18’ 8”, beam 6’ 10”, draft 3’ 5 ½”, displacement 2,300 pounds, sail area 261 sq. ft. FMI: www.samosetboatworks.com.

The Apprenticeshop, in Rockland, Maine, re-launched one of the few remaining Hai, or Camden Finnboats, on the Maine Coast on June 18, 2010, after a yearlong restoration. The Firefly (originally Gone Away), is boat No. 17 of a 30-odd boats shipped from Turku, Finland, to Camden in the early 1930s. Designer Gunnar Stenback used the principles of Henry Ford: mass production to keep the value high and the costs low. This was the beginning of “one-design,” the Hai was one of the first.

Boothbay Harbor Shipyard in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, has received $360,000 from the U.S. Depar tment of Transportation’s Maritime Adminstration for a new, wider cradle for its 750-ton marine railway. The grant was part of $14.7 million in grant awards to help improve small shipyards in 16 states. While 160 grant applications were submitted, only 17 shipyards were awarded grants. FMI: www.boothbayharborshipyard.com. International Yacht Restoration School, in Newport, R.I., has announced that students in the Composites Technology Program, a new nine-month program that begins this September at the school’s Bristol campus, will learn their craft while building a fleet of Moths. The Moth, no longer than 11 feet LOA, is a high-performance hydrofoil sailboat that can travel faster than the wind, and has been clocked at 27 knots. FMI: www.iyrs.org. Cape Breton Island businesses, in Nova Scotia, reaped the benefits of the island’s involvement in the Clipper 09-10 Round the World Yacht Race. The fleets’ 10 boats left the town of Sydney on June 19 after a nine-day stopover. The tourism industry was first to benefit as cars were hired, hotel rooms filled and bars and restaurants frequented. Many of the hotels reported full occupancy for the duration of the stay, bringing a much needed economic boost for the start of the summer sea-

son. Ardon Mofford, owner of Governor’s Pub and Restaurant, said, “The impact of having the fleet in Sydney is incredible, and we actually had to scramble extra help. Six more staff were hired immediately and the impact economically in the first four days was equivalent to my previous year’s May takings for the entire month.” KVH Industries, in Middletown, R.I., has signed on as one of the major finish-line sponsors of the Ida Lewis Distance Race Aug. 20 in support of two new initiatives: the use of Kattack LIVE (not affiliated with KVH Industries) for bringing real-time race-tracking to the race website, and the commissioning of a new perpetual trophy for the PHRF Cruising Spinnaker Class. The trophy will be named after Arent H. Kits van Heyningen, age 94, a member of Ida Lewis Yacht Club, who finished 3rd among 17 entrants in the PHRF Racing Class in 2009, sailing with his son, Robert W.B. Kits van Heyningen, aboard his IMX 45 Temptress. FMI: www.ildistancerace.org . Edson International, in New Bedford, Mass., reports that some of its Edson Nautical Stars were recently used in a new Veteran’s Memorial in Friendswood, Tex. The stainless stars were incorporated into the memorial’s centerpiece, an eightfoot-tall, 16-foot-wide waving stainless steel American flag. The flag sits on a two-foot granite base with the inscription, “Honor, Gratitude, Respect and Remembrance to the men and women who have served in the armed forces of the United States.” featuring a waving U.S. flag fabricated from stainless steel.

An extra-large tide gives the Leight’s bottom a bit of an airing at Damariscove Island, Maine.

True confessions of a hard-core cruiser aving been cruising under sail since bell-bottoms were in vogue, we’ve enjoyed the best of times, known fear and loathing – and made just about every mistake known to maritime man. Looking back through the haze of time, we can see the humor and humanity of it as we discovered our dramatic native coast, suffered gear failures by the dozens, made narrow escapes, worried our way through dungeons of fog, were insulted and insulting, drank an estimated 720 bottles of red wine, and were reduced to Spam for dinner 43 times – pass the sodium please. Our first boat, a 13-foot Old Town Whitecap, was possessed of every defect imaginable and as swift as a slug. Next was a $400, 19-foot sloop from which I had to cut off two inches of the rotted stern to find solid wood for a new transom. Though she leaked like a White House aide, we invented contact cruising, grounding her out for the sport of it (mostly) more than 100 times as we muddled our way from Rhode Island to the Bay of Fundy. For the last 25 years, we’ve been adventuring aboard a 26-foot sloop built in Sweden, and given our passion for gunk holing, you won’t be surprised to learn that we’ve put her on the hard or mud without damage, other than minor paint scrapes, 21 times. Any boat that can’t take a grounding or 20 is not fit for cruising. Aboard our current Leight, we’ve encountered five gales, put the first reef in the main an estimated 38 times, were reduced to the second reef and storm jib on three occasions, and motor-sailed to windward

four times, which felt like cheating because it’s not sailing at all. Of gear failures, the most memorable occurred on our first two improper yachts in which we lost a mast, broke two rudders, bent a centerboard, snapped a tiller, tore sail track off the boom, had sails rip, punched a hole in the bottom on an old pier post, and were horrified to see our outboard motor jump off the stern and sink to the bottom of Camden Harbor. The upside was that we learned to fix things – not infrequently with duct tape – or found that we could do without. We’ve lost three pair of reading glasses overboard as well as dungarees, six hats, four screwdrivers, seven pliers, two jackknives and a pair of cooking pots. I’ve had six “discussions” with boaters who anchored dangerously close. I yelled at one, was yelled back at, and have cursed my own ineptitude 596 times. Our favorite anchorages are the Mud Hole and Seal Trap in Maine, Rogues Roost in Nova Scotia, Grey River in Newfoundland, and many others in between. In spite of the challenges and ever-expanding learning curve, there are few public pursuits quite as stirring as coasting – and no shore more beautiful than points east. David Buckman’s new book, “Bucking the Tide,” about adventuring along the New England & Fundy coast in a $400 yacht, is available at www.eastworkspublications.com. The checkout lady at his neighborhood convenience store said that it was better than a sharp stick in the eye. editor@pointseast.com


FINAL

PASSAGES/T h ey

John Bledsoe Bonds 70, Mt. Pleasant, S.C.

John Bonds – conscience of sailing, safety innovator and authority, and former executive director of US Sailing – died on board his boat, Alliance, at Newport, R.I., on the night of June 8. He and his wife, Beth, lived in Mt. Pleasant, S.C. Born in Arkansas, John Bonds was initially infatuated with the sea and boats while a student at Rice University. He became an officer in the U.S. Navy, retiring with the rank of Captain in 1988 after a broad range of duties that included command of an ammunition ship off Vietnam and serving as deputy dean of the Center for Naval Warfare Studies at the Naval War College. Sailing whenever and wherever he could, in 1981 he was qualified to be appointed director of Navy Sailing. For all his interests, John Bonds was never not sailing. He was active in race management and judging for many sailing organizations, including his yacht clubs, among which were the Charleston Yacht Club, the Cruising Club of America, the New York Yacht

Club, and the Storm Trysail Club. Besides his wife, Beth, John Bonds leaves a daughter, Margaret Podlich, vice president of government affairs at BoatUS, of Annapolis, Md.; a son, John B. Bonds Jr., of San Francisco; and two grandchildren. He will also be missed by the world of his friends and admirers, and by the countless people who owe their sailing – in some cases even their lives – to what John Bonds brought us. John Rousmaniere

Service Since 1843

The MYSTIC SHIPYARD first opened its doors in 1843. At that time, the main focus was the construction of schooners and iron-clad ships. In 1902 the Shipyard built the five-masted, 249 foot coastal schooner, Jennie R. Dubois - the largest sailing ship ever built in Mystic; she was built in 1902. She cost almost $100,000 and was designed to carry 3,000 tons of coal or 2,000,000 board feet of lumber. At about that same time the shipyard refocused and became a place to build pleasure yachts. In the early 1940's, the Mystic Shipyard built catamaran power boats called sea sleds for racing and recreation and also as tenders for presidential yachts. In later years, the site was again re-purposed, this time as a recreational marina. The Mystic Shipyard has locations on both the East and West shores of the Mystic River - south of all bridges, and well-protected from Mother Nature’s elements. Our west yard offers 155 deep water slips with plenty of room for transients up to 150' and our east yard offers 115 slips. Walk or dinghy to downtown Mystic and the Mystic Seaport from either location.

As the harbor opened up, I was distressed to see not one, but four or five, truly monstrous powerboats − the kind that look like pocket ocean liners and can only be owned by the super rich.

Encounter at Orcutt Harbor t was late, and as Penelope ghosted north along the Cape Rosier shore, we decided we’d better head into Orcutt Harbor, a deep gut running up between the Cape and Condon Point. It was that or nearby Bucks Harbor, picturesque but always much too crowded for my taste. I’m not in love with Orcutt Harbor, either, because way up at the head of the harbor where it is shoal enough for comfortable anchoring, it tends to be quite buggy. Or, to put it more bluntly, I’ve found more mosquitoes there than anywhere else on the Maine coast. The engineless sailor must take what he needs when he can get it, though, and with the wind dying and the sun going down, there wasn’t much choice. As the harbor opened up before me, I was distressed to see not one, but four or five, truly monstrous powerboats in there. The kind that look like pocket ocean liners and can only be owned by the super rich. The late Aristotle Onassis used to entertain Maria Callas and Jackie Kennedy on one. His arch rival Niarchos had one, too. This alien presence was a big surprise because, to quote from Taft and Rindlaub’s “A Cruising Guide to

I

the Maine Coast,” Orcutt Harbor is normally “little used by yachtsmen.” The big boats were clustered approximately halfway up the harbor, which meant that, by proceeding all the way up to mosquito headquarters, I could put at least a half-mile between Penelope and them. Mosquitoes are onerous, but I much prefer them to the all night drone of generators and air conditioners and the attendant diesel fumes. Some of us cruise to get away from the more decadent aspects of modern civilization; others, it seems, will go to any expense to bring it all with them. The mosquitoes were happy to greet us, and, due to the late hour, were out in force. Getting the anchor down, sail furled and all the other chores attendant on anchoring were accompanied by a lot of swatting and slapping and not a little foul language. I was kneeling on the foredeck enveloped in a cloud of stinging insects and just clipping a 25-pound sentinel on the anchor line when, KABOOM!, one of the behemoths down harbor fired off a signal cannon. A real mega-blast to match the megayachts. A seal who had been lolling on his back and reeditor@pointseast.com


garding me from quite close by practically exploded in fright, and a loon who’d been cruising around a little farther off dove for China. I hit the deck like a ton of bricks (reflexes picked up in Viet Nam die hard) and, most irritatingly, dropped my very useful sentinel. It hit the water with a mellow kerplash and went to join the old soup cans and wine bottles that litter the bottom of every harbor. I’ve always wondered why certain individuals and organizations find it necessary to shatter the peace of waterborne evenings in remote settings with massive explosions at sunset. Perhaps they do it for the visually impaired who otherwise, might not know that night was on its way. Sans sentinel and full of sentiments more than benign, I spent the rest of the evening battling mosquitoes and missing a hot dinner because I don’t like to cook with the boat all buttoned up. Sardines and Fig Newtons are a poor substitute for my favorite: steak and baked beans. Morning came glorious and bright, as only a Maine morning along the coast can. The new day was full of promise, and the unpleasantness of the preceding evening receded quickly to the realm of distant memory. Eight a.m. saw me leaning over the side, rinsing out the spider after breakfast. . . BROOOOONGH!!!!! One of my massive neighbors down harbor cut loose with a mighty horn blast, surely louder than any-

thing the Titanic or the Queen Mary could ever produce. Well, you guessed it, the old vet hit the deck again, and, oh no, the spider made a hardy splash as it went to join the sentinel and the old soup cans. Disaster. I can’t cruise without a frying pan. I cook in it and eat out of it. It is more important, probably, than the compass. Now, really, would you come into any other neighborhood in the world on a peaceful morning where people are just waking up, or perhaps enjoying a quiet cup of coffee in the sunny morning stillness and unleash the sonic equivalent of an atomic bomb? No, you wouldn’t. It’s just not good manners. The mighty horn blast from the megayacht might at least have been expected to signify something, but, in fact, it had no discernable effect. No one hauled anchor and left, no one on any of the boats out there even came on deck. Nothing happened at all. It seemed more like a declaration. Something like: “Behold! My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty and despair!” Well I didn’t despair, though I was greatly saddened by the loss of my sentinel and my spider. I just got out of there as soon as there was some wind. W. R. Cheney sails the very quiet, engineless Marshall 22 Penelope out of Burnt Coat Harbor, Swan’s Island, Maine.
