EDITOR’S PAGE/Nim Ma rsh

International Marine: 40 years and counting The news that International Marine Publishing Company is celebrating its 40th year producing seagoing books (see Yardwork, page 65) made me feel a little old and a lot blessed. In 1971, as IM was poised to release its first volume, I signed on as managing editor for “National Fisherman.” The former “National Fisherman/Maine Coast Fisherman” then shared a floor of 21 Elm Street, in Camden, Maine, with the fledgling maritime publishing house established by Roger Taylor, consummate seaman and true gentleman of our recreation and industry. At about the same time I was climbing the creaky, wooden stairs to “The Fisherman” offices to work for editor Dave Getchell, new book editor Peter Spectre (longtime author and editor of “Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors”) was settling in at IM. The two of us shared a long, narrow office, and when the editor nearest the window wished to leave, the editor nearest the office door also had to exit to clear the way for him. But we weren’t complaining: These were dream jobs that set both of us irrevocably on marine-publishing courses, which, if they did not take us straight down the middle of the channel, have endured, captivated and – if not offering Fortune 500 incomes – kept us occupied over those same four decades. In the early ’70s, “National Fisherman” and International Marine were physically and philosophically joined at the hip. IM published books about the lore, romance, traditions and disciplines of the sea; NF was steeped in salt on both commercial and recreational levels, which serendipitously met on a common patch of ocean, with similar seamanlike interests and challenges. NF was a three-section (news/commercial fishing/boat design and construction) tabloid-format newspaper, with the IM catalog of sea books inserted in the middle, with the prospect of a captive audience of prospective customers on either side. Ours was a little world back then, one of boats and books and the written word, and it was pretty much contained in Knox County, between Belfast and Rockland. Conventional wisdom or values rarely applied, and our sense of equivalencies often bordered on the bizarre. I recall trading my boat, motor and trailer to Peter for his leather-bound copy of Erskine Childers’ “Riddle of the Sands.” Yes, I know, I took him to the cleaners. On production days, from spring to fall, Dave Getchell and I would ride our bicycles to the back shop of the Belfast “Republican Journal,” where NF’s body type was set on “hot-type” Linotype machines, headlines on the Ludlow, and the paper printed on old 6

sheet-fed presses. Lunch was always at Weaver’s Bakery, which presented me with an irreverently decorated cake when I left “The Fisherman.” IM’s first published book, if memory serves me correctly, was Bob Steward’s “Boatbuilding Manual,” an early edition of which has tried to guide me through my frequent, bumbling attempts to restore old wood boats. More than 75,000 copies of Steward’s manual have been sold over four editions. Molly Mulhern, IM’s director of editing, design and production sent me the fifth, a “40th Anniversary Edition,” in early August. Revised by “WoodenBoat” magazine publisher Carl Cramer, it should surprise no one that it is spectacular. As “Boatbuilding Manual” has thrived over four decades, so has International Marine, now a member of the McGraw-Hill publishing family. Today, IM claims to offer “the world’s largest library of nautical information.” “I find it hard to believe all that has transpired,” Molly told me. “I celebrate my 25th anniversary with the company at the end of August. Roger hired me!” And I find it incredible that, 40 years ago, I had a front-row seat at the birth of such a specialized publishing house. Yet some days, as I run through my daily editorial tasks – working with our down-to-earth staff and stable of authors (most of whom are avid Points East readers) who bare their souls to our readership every issue – I feel I am back in Camden in a different time, helping put out another magazine printed on newsprint, one with a catalog of seagoing books steeped in salt and filled with the lore, romance, traditions and disciplines of the sea. editor@pointseast.com


Letters

“What you can do for me,” said Marty Benner, seen here with daughter Kasey, “is that the next time you see someone in trouble on the sea, you go and help them out.”

Place some faces with the names As you often do not include pictures with Guest Perspectives (in this case, my article “Paying Forward” in the August issue), I would like to send you a photo of our rescuers, Marty Benner and his daughter Kasey, and, of course, the Debbie Jean, as they deserve all the recognition due them for their kindness to us. Nina and Jim Scott Friendship, Maine, & Amherst, Mass.

Is Mike a sucker for punishment? Capt. Mike Martel’s account of his recent motorboat adventure (“Running the Coast with Captain Bill”) in the August issue of Points East was entertaining, wellwritten and appallingly inane all at once. More than anything, I was reminded of the story about the guy who liked to bang away at his own head with a hammer because it felt so good when he stopped. W. R. Cheney s/v Penelope Swans Island, Maine

Motorboat Goslin just turned 84 It was my pleasure to see a picture of my boat Goslin in the “Letters” section of your July issue. Capt. Winston Shaw was kind enough to make several approvwww.pointseast.com

ing remarks about her. I’ve also read Bill Cheney’s article in the June issue. In response to them, here are the particulars of her history. She was built in 1927 by Cape Cod Shipbuilding Corp., in Wareham, Mass. She is 20 feet in length, with just over a five-foot beam, and draft of maybe 18 inches. She is a Swampscott-style dory, not lapstrake but carvel planked. Her original power plant was a two-cylinder, four-cycle Kermath with reverse gear; I don’t know the horsepower but surely only a few. She had a watermelon-style spray hood supported by a brass pipe stanchion about amidships. Her first owner was a Mr. Nalle, a summer visitor to Northeast Harbor. She apparently was never christened with any name for her first 40 years of her life. She wore out the original engine and also a second, identical one. Shortly before 1967, Mr. Nalle followed very bad advice and had an eight-horse Briggs & Stratton installed. I had the interesting experience of working on her while employed at Farnham Butler’s Mount Desert Yacht Yard at the head of Somes Sound sometime in the later ’40s, where she was hauled and maintained. She was known as “the Nalle dory,” which proves my contention that she had no name. I remember that when she was launched each summer, she was one of those boats that required a “pumper” for the first six hours or more, to keep her from filling until her seams had begun to swell. This sometimes meant overtime for a kid, who could not have been more pleased to be aboard a boat with a pump and a pail and nothing else to do at time-and-a-half. When Mr. Nalle decided he was too old for boating, he donated her to John Butler, who had succeeded Farnham as proprietor of the yard. John, having received an offer of $100 from a retired lobsterman, who thought he’d like to go in this little boat and haul a few traps for fun, felt my father, Malcolm MacDuffie (Farnham’s boyhood friend) might make a higher offer. Dad could not resist – he already could picture her with a truly suitable power plant in the form of a two and a half horse Nadler, ex-Lockwood-Ash jump-spark two-cycle, which he had spied in the shop of another friend. So for her second 40 years, and now named Goslin, this little beauty began to sound like the puttputt she was born to be. Dad was most happy with the Nadler, but it was a little shy on power when things got rough or there was a boat to be towed. So after a few years, he bought one of the last true make-and-breaks still in production, a four-horse Acadia made in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. Points East September 2011

It was installed in 1975 and used by him with great satisfaction that summer; then, alas, he passed on during the next winter and the boat came to me. I’ve used her since in both fresh water and salt. The first Acadia rusted out in 1990 because of salt-water cooling, and by a stroke of luck was replaced with another identical engine that had never been used. With fresh-water cooling installed, and her 84th birthday soon to be celebrated, Goslin is still hale and hearty and lots of fun. John MacDuffie Bernard, Maine

Lots of Samaritans on Cape Ann I am writing to lend credence to the axiom that it is better to be lucky than good – or simply, it’s good to be lucky. We had left Kittery, Maine, in our sailboat for a twoweek trip to Massachusetts Bay and Buzzards Bay. After motoring for six hours due to light winds on the nose, we prepared to anchor in Southeast Harbor in Gloucester. Immediately after lowering the anchor, the engine failed. This was followed by steam and acrid smoke billowing from the engine compartment. Fortunately, there were no flames, and the smoke cleared with some ventilation. Inspection of the engine revealed that the pipe connecting the exhaust manifold to the exhaust elbow had completely sheared off, so the raw water coolant had bathed the engine block instead of exiting at the transom of the boat. After surveying the situation, we felt that we were safely anchored, but our boat was broken. I was able to remove the adaptor plate from the manifold and the exhaust elbow from its hoses without incident. Further discussion was held with my wife, whose main concern now became getting ice for our refrigerator as our engine-driven refrigeration system was kaput. About this time, a powerboat cruised by with two families on board. They were checking out new boats anchored in the harbor. I waved them over and asked them where we could get some ice, as we could still use our dinghy. They asked, “How much ice did you want?” I told them, and they left and returned in 10 minutes with 40 pounds of ice cubes from Eastern Point Yacht Club. We were very impressed. We talked some more and explained our situation. Their captain was very helpful and said that he would be back at 9 a.m. the next morning to take us into the local boatyard to get some help for the engine. Promptly at 9 a.m., our man returned and took us into Gloucester with our broken parts. The yard was busy, as expected, and it would be awhile before they could get to our boat. They gave us the name of a mobile mechanic who might be able to help us sooner. I called him, and he said he might be able to come out to the 8

boat the next day. I felt that if I could get the parts for the repair it would expedite matters. A phone call was then made to Hansen Marine in Marblehead, a major Westerbeke dealer, as our sailboat auxiliary is a 70-horse Westerbeke. Discussions were then held with our newfound friend and Samaritan. We bought gas and oil for his boat and made a promise of lunch for the water taxi ride from Gloucester to Marblehead. After arrival at the public landing in Marblehead, I was faced with the problem of getting from the dock to Hansen’s Marine, which was inland and not on the waterfront. At our dock, fishing boats were unloading crates of dogfish into a truck. I talked to the fishermen about getting to Hansen’s, and within 30 seconds I was in the cab of the truck with the driver who was taking the dogfish to Gloucester for processing. He dropped me at Hansen’s front door. The parts manager at Hansen’s was extremely helpful and found all the pieces necessary for the repair. He even arranged a ride back to the dock area with one of the mechanics, who was headed that way. At the dock, I reunited with my wife and new friend, who had enjoyed a lobster salad lunch over looking Marblehead Harbor while I was on the parts mission. We were back on our boat within 40 minutes. The adapter and exhaust elbow were bolted into place and the hoses reconnected. The engine turned over immediately, and we were gratified to see exhaust water pour out the appropriate pipe in the transom instead of the engine compartment. We were good to go in less than 24 hours after breaking down. A shout-out and thank you to Capt. Paul Bryant of Gloucester and Rockport for the ice and water taxi service, to Steve the parts man at Hansen Marine, and to the dogfish truck driver and the mechanic for rides. Charles Detwiler s/v Intrigue Bedford, N.H.

Call Randy about M/V Snow Goose On a recent Saturday, during our marina cookout, one of our young dockmasters came up to me and said, “Did that guy from Massachusetts call you?” “What guy?” I asked Andrew. Then the story came out. Evidently, someone had seen the story and pictures in my story, “Flight of the Snow Goose,” in the July issue, and that person either owns the Snow Goose or knows where it is. Our dockmaster was confused by the call and did not get a phone number or email address. The man who called said that Snow Goose was stored somewhere under a tarp.

in Bangor, and all I recall is that it went “south.” That would have been at least 30 years ago. Now, thanks to Points East, we have a hint, at least, that the old girl might still be intact and maybe even floatable. Who knows? A 60-year-old boat could be in pretty rough shape. Now I’m waiting for some kind person in Massachusetts, whom I’ve never met, to call us back. I’d love to at least chat about the boat and maybe arrange a road trip to go look at her. Experiences such as this add interest and excitement to the lives of us who love old boats. Who knew the Snow Goose was still together? Now we have a tantalizing whiff of an old friend. Hopefully, this all will play out, and we’ll be able to reconnect with Dad’s boat. Randy Randall Marston’s Marina Saco, Maine

Her first Cape Cod Canal transit So, I live on Cape Cod, and have enjoyed tagging along on friends’ boats many a time, on trips from Barnstable Harbor to Sandy Neck. In July, I was able to go with my friend Joe Juffre out of Sandwich, into the Cape Cod Canal. What fun. But, to be honest, it was also a little scary.

of like watching “Jaws” – and we don’t know why. Perhaps it’s because the canal is irrevocably Stygian as it draws boats into its unrelenting tides and currents. We always look forward to entering the canal, even though we wonder if we’ll come out the other end.

Perils of the Jeffreys Ledge Race The Jeffreys Ledge Race was sponsored by the Boston Station of the Cruising Club of America, and the racecourse for 30-odd years went from Manchester, Mass., to the Peaked Hill Bar buoy off Provincetown, then down to a buoy (“2” JL) off Jeffreys Ledge and then back to Manchester. Sometimes contestants went through the Annisquam Canal. CCA troops were known to throw a can of beer to the bridge attendant so he would close the bridge after the thrower went through so boats behind would be drastically delayed. The course was 130 miles long and was held on the first weekend after Labor Day. The weather tended to be dicey. The course was a staggered start, the smallest boats starting at approximately 8 a.m., and the rest of the entrants up to 1 p.m. Each boat was allotted enough fuel to run about a quarter of the course on the engine.

Mystery Harbor

The night before the race, a party was held at the Manchester Marine. It was a disaster. At 1 a.m., we were headed back out of the harbor to our dock when the son of an insurance agent who was racing on Crocodile, our Concordia 39, asked, “Is this all this bucket can do?” I floored it, fell off the seat, and we crashed into a Rhodes 19, sinking it. My brother asked, “Whose was that?” “Yours,” I responded. The next morning, the navigator was observed scattering small pieces of paper around the cabin, so he was promptly relieved of his duties, confined to the starboard bunk to sober up, and I took over his duties. Crocodile won that race, having thrived in the heavy weather and saved her fuel for the finish. Crocodile celebrated her 50th Anniversary in June 2009. The highlight of her career was when she won the Marblehead/Halifax race in 1997. All in all, she has been an entrant in this race nine times. Hopefully, she will enter the Halifax Race again. But when September rolls around, I always think of that crazy Jeffreys Ledge Race and the year she won it, too. Edgar Crocker Cataumet, Mass.

No, we didn’t screw up -- no one guessed last month’s Mystery Harbor and you know the rules: No new photo until someone guesses, or we get bored. So here’s a hint: This anchorage is in Rhode Island.

Perspectives So, who eats the cannibal? he next time your popularity at home, on the job, or even with friends. sinks to a new low, like a maligned politician, remember the lobster. Even this now-coveted delight wasn’t always so popular. Today (with four exceptions you’ll learn about shortly), despite its bottom-feeder lifestyle, bulging beady eyes and complete lack of good looks, it’s hot (even before the pot). Lobsters were once so plentiful that Native Americans used them as fertilizer and fish bait. In Colonial times. they were considered poverty food. At one time they were harvested from tidal pools and fed to prisoners and children. Indentured servants, who exchanged seven years of service for passage to America, had it put in their contracts that they would not be forced to eat lobster more than three times a week. And stories have been told about how the chil-

T

dren who brought lobster sandwiches to school were considered the “poor kids” in town. But, of course, all that has changed. Almost everywhere. Almost. Years back, when I was working inland waters on the Mississippi River, I took a break to fly east and visit my parents, who were cruising Maine. It was great to be back but sad to leave. So, I thought, why not bring back some live lobsters to my river-pilot friends and have a Maine theme party on Dave’s Ark, my old steel houseboat. That afternoon, upon my return, I called Big Red and three other pilots and invited them for dinner that evening. The lobsters were a surprise. Big Red was the first to come aboard; his girth filled the small door, and even Dave’s Ark rocked a little under his weight. “What’s cookin’ there Cappy? Must

be one large creature if yer usin’ that monster pot.” “It’s a surprise.” “Well, whatever you got there, I’m sure it’ll fit in here regardless,” he said, pointing to his stomach. The wellstretched words emblazoned on his yellow T-shirt read, “Fuel Tank for a Sex Machine.” On his head he wore a dirty, white baseball cap that said, “Oshkosh Air Show.” Red was a pilot, both on the river and in the air. One of the best, by the way. Earned his wings in Vietnam flying choppers. Not afraid of much in this world. “I see you dressed for dinner.” “The very best for the occasion, given the company I’ll be keepin’, Cappy,” he said, giving me a hearty slap on my shoulder. “Besides, been pushing barges on the towboat Mighty Mike Harris right in your neighborhood, so figured I’d skip the clean-up and head on over. Late for a lot in life so far, but never for free food and a party. The others arrived: Hokon, Big John and Larry. They all carried 12-packs of Budweiser. Thirty-six beers seemed to be enough, even for this crowd. Maybe, I thought, I can even save those nice white wines I bought. I set the big pot to boiling and went to the aft deck to grab the packed lobsters. It was time for the announcement. “You’re in for a treat,” I said with pride. “Fresh Maine lobsters. Flew them back with me.”

It all got quiet. “Something wrong?” “Beggin’ yer pardon, there, Cappy,” Big Red said finally. “But you ain’t planning on us eatin’ them things?” “You guys, this is fresh-caught Maine lobster. We should savor every part. In fact, the true lobster connoisseur will leave little on the plate short of the shell. They’ll eat the tomalley, which they consider a delicacy. The tomalley is part of a lobster’s digestive tract, and turns green when it’s cooked. And they’ll savor the roe, which is the red, or deep-coral-looking mush that’s actually the unfertilized egg mass of a female. I’ve known people who even eat their eyeballs.” Red looked over at Hokon, Larry and Big John. Over the past three years, I’d heard stories of each of them in some very scary situations, such as coming face to face with a downstream tow of two million gallons of gasoline, in the black of night, as they rounded a bend and approached a railroad bridge while pushing their own four empty 200-foot grain barges. Finally, Red spoke: “I been faced up to a lot of evil circumstances in life this far, there Cappy; mebbe a lot of them even my own doin’. But I ain’t a cannibal. And I certainly ain’t eating what looks like one. And so it was: The big tough river pilots couldn’t handle the consumption of four 1.5-pound anthropods. I had them all to myself. But they drank all my good white wine.

PERSPECTIVE/Susa n

Overbey

Who names their boat after biogas? ames fascinate me. I like making them up. I had our children named in utero; as a child, my Barbies were never named Barbie. That’s why I love cruising through a mooring field. Is it audacity or arrogance that motivates one to slap a 12-inch Hi Boss on a 23-foot Mako fishing boat? If his boss is the person in Quahog Bay, Maine, who owns that nifty yacht named Field Office, then he really is just saying hello, isn’t he? Is the owner of High Country a cowboy who traded in boots for a slicker, and is the pilot of Kitty Hawk out of Newport an airline pilot or a bird lover? Do others wonder the same things? When we began to sail some 14 years ago, I relished the assignment of re-christening our Watkins 27. Bad luck or not, I didn’t want to cruise in a boat named Outrageous. Outrageous is a battleship name, the kind Admiral Nelson would have sailed. The only thing outrageous about our boat was the teacup-sized sink. We re-christened her Finally – as in, after 23 years and 3 kids, my husband got the sailboat he talked about on the night I met him in 1971. Lots of sailboats use the word wind in their names: Wind Song, Windswept, Wind Dancer, Windarra, Windingo, Windhover, Restless Wind (that Gogie Grant song starts playing in my head), and Gone With The Wind. I’m so jealous. I wish I had though of that one. Boat names often reference the state of being their owners expect to achieve while on board: Bliss, Harmony, Nirvana, Synchronicity (a maybe entry in this category as the owner could be a Police fan). Or they reference a mythical journey: Camelot, Avalon, Heaven, Xanadu. In Vineyard Haven we came across an Island Packet named Tir Na Nog. I was intrigued enough by the name to Google it on my Blackberry: “Tir Na Nog, an Irish mythical place of eternal youth and beauty” (darn! I’m Polish; we don’t have any lyrical sounding places like that). When we got our second boat, a 40-foot Morgan ketch, the re-christening argument got a little heated. One of its previous owners had named it Foxfire – light given off by swamp gas? Maybe they were referencing the smell from the second head because the holding tank nestled above the head instead of in the bilge where it belonged. I suggested re-christening the vessel Katie Sue, placing our daughter’s name before mine.

Certainly, having she-who-walks-on-the-water’s name in there before mine would make this a shoo-in. “No,” my husband Randy said. “You don’t name sailboats after women. Fishing boats are named after women.” We never re-named Foxfire. We don’t have it anymore either. My husband was partially mistaken about the fishing boat names. In Cape Porpoise, Maine, I saw and still see a fishing boat with 32 Below painted on its hull in the harbor with Jennifer Marie, Mary Lou, Courtney Ann, and all the other ladies of the fleet. To me, the words “32 Below” indicate a strong resolve to put dinner on the table no matter what conditions the sea offers. Its stoic message is as eloquent an expression of love as are the curlycued or calligraphied names of its neighbors. In Menemsha, I saw a battered trawler parked between two other trawlers named for women, but this one said, Four Kids, and that said it all. I love it when boats name their dinghies. Again on the Vineyard, I saw Recess trailing its tender Detention. A little farther on in the mooring field we came across the lovely wooden sailboat Anastasia being guarded by Boris, but then I thought, “Wait, is he cheating on Natasha?” Cleverness always intrigues me. One of the best names I ever heard came over the radio while on a run to the Isles of Shoals. It was a call for The Empire Strikes Back. Several years ago, outside Portsmouth Harbor, a group of kids were having the times of their lives on a racing sailboat, with a seethrough, high-tech sail, named Lunatic Fringe. I admire simplicity in a boat name, like Joshua Slocum’s Spray, and this summer I came across Whisper and Song. Boats do sing to many people. There’s the Saco River Tiana Whale Song and the Edgartown catboat named Sonata. In our travels I’ve seen Wind Song, Ocean Song and Symphony. I envy Solvent. I can’t imagine whatever possessed The Flying Bugster, and I admire the uniqueness of Caduseus, named for staff around which two serpents are entwined, the ancient symbol of commerce and negotiation. I totally get that name. We expect a lot from our fiberglass and teak: Fortitude, Bliss, Panic Control. In Hadley Harbor, we saw More Therapy – two kids and a husband and wife – and all were laughing. When we met our friend Loyd 11 years ago; he, too, had a Watkins 27. He named his Hydrotherapy. Today, he sails a Morgan 38: one head, holding tank in the bilge. He calls it Serenity. Susan Overbey 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 high-school history teacher, and she loves teaching as much as cruising. www.pointseast.com

A Nine-Eleven retrospective t was a gorgeous day, and we had the World Trade Center and lower Manhattan for a backdrop. We had lunch and snapped a few photos of ourselves in our boat with the Twin Towers in the background. Little did we know that in less than two months they would be gone. It started out like most of our summer vacations on the White Whale, our 35-foot cruiser built in 1937 of cedar on oak by Hall-Mulford Shipyard in Fairton, N.J. On a cold, wet, rainy day in April 2001, my wife Sharon and I were sitting by the fireplace, wondering if it would ever get warm again in Connecticut. “What do you want to do for our summer vacation this year, Hon?” my wife asked. “Instead of heading east to Block

or Montauk or the Classic Boat Show in Mystic, why don’t we head west and circumnavigate Manhattan Island,” I replied. “I haven’t done it in years, and we can visit some of the old ports I frequented as a kid: City Island, New Rochelle, Port Washington; we might even drop the hook off of Huckleberry Island [the maritime equivalent of Lovers Lane in the old days].” Skippers who haven’t ventured west from their Nutmeg State homeport for a summer vacation are missing a spectacular vacation opportunity practically in their own backyard. Running Hell Gate to reach Manhattan is truly an adventure, and if you hit an outgoing tide through Hell Gate, as we did, you can experience New York’s version of a Nantucket Sleigh Ride.

We did our usual prep: singlemalt for me, Bombay Sapphire for the wife, and four carts of food and essentials (a cocktail dress? Ya’gotta be kidding me!), and we were on our way. We slipped our mooring in Bridgeport, Conn., at about 11 a.m. on July 14 and headed southwest. Our first gunkhole of choice was the Eaton’s Neck in the outer harbor of Northport, on Long Island’s North Shore. Our plan was to spend one night here and another night in The Sand Hole outside of Oyster Bay, which would set us up for the trip around Manhattan Island on the third day. Why three days to go around Manhattan Island from Bridgeport? Well, the White Whale is approaching 75 years of age, and she prefers a leisurely six knots. Plus, we were on vacation, so what was the rush? We arrived at the Sand Hole in time for a beautiful sunset and a dinner of fresh clams purchased from a fisherman the day before. In the morning, we weighed anchor, and two hours later we were refueling on City Island. During the last century, City Island was where much of the work on America’s Cup yachts took place. It was also the station for pilot boats that guided sailing ships through the East River into the Port of New York. The next morning, we entered the East River under the Throgs Neck and the Whitestone bridges. We passed Riker’s Island and watched a few jets land at LaGuardia before entering the narrowest part of the river at Hell Gate. For a boat that does 6 ½ or 7 knots on its best day, we were flying, cruising along at 12 knots. “Wow, we even passed a sailboat,” my wife exclaimed. We arrived at the tip of Manhateditor@pointseast.com

much water, but if a sailboat could get in there, the White Whale certainly could. I approached at idle speed, and we were safely anchored for a noontime lunch. The views of the World Trade Center were spectacular, and in the months to come we would treasure the photographs we took of it. We only anchored behind Ellis Island for a little over an hour because we wanted to complete our circumnavigation before dark. After weighing anchor, we cruised up the Hudson River, passed under the George Washington Bridge and headed for the Spuyten Duyvil and the Harlem River. “Spuyten Duyvil” literally means “Devil’s Spout” and was named such by the Dutch when New York was New Amsterdam. When the tide runs, swift eddies and currents run through the entrance to the river. The devil was asleep this day, however, and we passed through the channel from the Hudson to the Harlem River without a ripple. The Harlem River is spanned by seven swing bridges, three lift bridges, and four arch bridges. Sailboats and high-clearance craft may require bridges to be opened and would require a pre-clearance with port authorities. We cruised unimpeded down the river, which was memorable for its contrast with the rest of Manhattan. Cruising between upper Manhattan and the Bronx one gets to view the grittier parts of New York. By the time we reached Hell Gate, the tide was run-

ning in the opposite direction, and once again we received a push from Mother Nature. We didn’t have quite the 12 knots of the way down, but the boost was fast enough to have us tied up at Louie’s in Port Washington for cocktails and a lobster dinner by 5 p.m. The following morning we headed over to Minneford Yacht Club on City Island for a hot shower, some shopping, lunch, and a trip down memory lane visiting Orchard Beach and Glen Island, and a search for Fisher’s Marina and a hole in the ground that was once Rudy’s Barge. Fisher’s Marina was my old homeport where “first I learned to row a little boat.” The White Whale was moored for many years at Rudy’s Barge in New Rochelle. When I look at our photos of the World Trade Center today, I am consumed by mixed emotions. I’m reminded of how wonderful it was to have grown up in New York, and to have watched the Twin Towers being built. But a decade after the attacks, I am also greatly saddened by the unspeakable tragedy of 9/11 that destroyed these iconic structures and the lives of so many people.

They presented him with an award with the simple inscription, “Hero.” Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., president of the international environmental advocacy organization Waterkeeper Alliance, cited Joe’s 20 years as Casco Baykeeper, making him the second-longest-serving Waterkeeper ever. Joe became the seventh Waterkeeper in the world when he was hired by Friends of Casco Bay in 1991; today there are 195 Waterkeepers on six continents. “If there are heroes, it’s our volunteers and supporters, who help to monitor the environmental health of Casco Bay, who do community service projects like beach cleanups and storm drain stenciling, who report pollution incidents as they occur, and who vote to fund cleanup efforts like Portland’s sewage remediation project,” Payne said.

They noted that the 2010 total was only slightly lower than the 676 deaths in 2004, the previous record low, but 26 deaths lower than the average number of fatalities for the last 10 years. Total reported accidents were 4,604 in 2010, down from 4,730 in 2009, while injuries totaled 3,153, down from 3,358. Property damage was estimated at $35 million. Operator inattention, improper lookout, operator inexperience, excessive speed, and alcohol use rank as the top five primary contributing factors in accidents. Alcohol use is the leading contributing factor in fatal boating accidents; it was listed as the leading factor in 19% of the deaths. FMI: www.uscgboating.org.

Schooner hits the bricks in Casco Bay Forty-nine passengers were evacuated from the 59-foot sightseeing schooner Wendameen that ran aground in Casco Bay, Maine, near Great Diamond Island, in late July at about 6 p.m. A Coast Guard Station South Portland 47-foot motor lifeboat and a Portland Fire Department boat answered the call. No injuries were reported. The schooner’s crew remained aboard to aid the vessel until it was refloated. Wendameen was involved in another grounding in June in a different location in Casco Bay but passed a Coast Guard hull survey before being allowed back into service. FMI: www.coastguardnews.com.

Mystic Whaler raises $10,000 for fund

Mystic Shipyard now renting kayaks

The ninth annual fundraising sail of the Mystic Whaler, out of Mystic, Conn., raised $9,980 for the Todd Wilkins Scholarship Fund on July 17. The endowed fund provides support for young people to participate in the sail education programs at Mystic Seaport. The endowment was founded by Rich and Jane Wilkins in memory of their son Todd Wilkins, a Mystic native and former sailing instructor at Mystic Seaport, where he himself learned to sail. He passed away tragically in 2003 at the age of 33. Todd started sailing onboard Mystic Whaler at the age of 10. FMI: www.mysticseaport.org.

Mystic Shipyard is renting kayaks for explorations of the Mystic River, a 3.4-mile-long estuary with many coves and hidden nooks to enjoy. A kayak is a great vantage point to view ospreys, egrets, and other waterfowl as well as the marshes and bird sanctuaries. Continue upriver and cruise past the Mystic Seaport, where historic sailing vessels can be seen on the east side of the river, while lovely riverfront ship captains’ homes are on the west side. Heading south, the river will continue to carry you into Fishers Island Sound. FMI: Call Mystic at 860-536-6588.

Weaver’s Cove LNG plan abandoned Hess LNG/Weaver’s Cove Energy abandoned its eight-year pursuit of a major liquid natural gas terminal in Mount Hope Bay in June. “This is a great day for Mount Hope Bay, Narragansett Bay and the [Rhode Island and Massachusetts] communities that value and defend these great natural treasures,” said Jonathan Stone, executive director of Save The Bay. Hess reportedly cited unfavorable economics for its decision, but Stone says, “The project was always a bad idea for the bay. . . .

Rockland Y.C.’s Icebreaker Cruise Rockland (Maine) Yacht Club announces a successful start to its 84th sailing season with a kickoff cruise, hosted by Steve Pierce, from Rockland to Vinalhaven’s Seal Bay. Five boats enjoyed a fine start to the summer. Three boats left Rockland Saturday morning, June 4, heading for Seal Bay: Webfoot with Dave and Commodore MJ Shiverick, Altair with Rick and Julie Palm, and Spirits with Steve Pierce and Alan MacDonald. A fourth boat, Black Bear with Gary Cran and Norm Farrar, left from Pulpit Har-

bor and was the last boat to arrive at Seal Bay. Dutch Dresser, leaving Rockland on Koan late in the afternoon, spent the night at Perry Creek. Sunday morning, the boats returned to Rockland in light air. All things considered, it was a very nice start to the 84th cruising season. FMI: www.rocklandyc.org.

POWER, continued from Page 28 Cod and the Islands. We did our first cruising trips on a used Pearson 26 (outboard) sailboat. We then got a Pearson 28 (inboard), and later a Pearson 32â&#x20AC;&#x2122; cruiser. As our boat size grew, we began to extend our voyages, as far as our vacation time would allow. Carol had the summers off: She was a math teacher. At that time, I was a banker with adequate vacation time, unless one wanted to sail to faraway ports. As we sailed more, we decided it was again time to move to a larger boat. We selected a new Tartan 37 sloop, which was a wonderful boat. The more we sailed that boat, the more we wanted to cruise farther afield, especially to the Maine coast. My available vacation time and scheduling made that difficult. So, we solved the problem! I went back into college teaching, which I had done previously at the Coast Guard Academy and as an adjunct professor while in banking. Now we both had the summers off, and in 1985 we did a seven-week cruise to Maine and back. We were hooked. We proceeded to travel from Connecticut to Maine every summer until we retired to Maine in

or were too big or too expensive. Some were sold before we ever got there to see them. After we had looked at a Duffy 26 diesel (which failed survey), we became aware that we needed more cabin space, especially headroom, than some of these boats offered. We had also decided we did not want another cored hull because of issues we had dealt with on hulls we had owned, both power and sail. We found a General Marine 26 diesel boat in Bristol, Maine, and really liked it. We had not seen these boats before, although they are built in Biddeford, Maine. However, that boat, too, failed survey due to engine issues. The particular model we had looked at was a bass boat style with a windshield and soft top. As we continued our search, we decided we wanted a hard top to extend our cruising season in Maine. So where can we find a GM hardtop to look at? Why, in New Jersey, of course. In December 2007, we hired the President of General Marine, Stacey Raymond, to transport our newly purchased 1995 General Marine 26 sedan to Maine. She displaces 8,000 pounds, has a beam of nine feet, six inches, and draws about three feet. Our truck couldn’t tow the boat, and it was now December, and we really didn’t want to cruise to Maine from New Jersey that time of year. I met Stacy Raymond at 4 a.m. on a Saturday at his boat factory in Biddeford and we headed for Brick, N.J., trailer in tow, behind an almost brand-new Chevy Silverado diesel pickup. The weather forecast for Saturday was great, until late evening, when a big nor’easter snowstorm was expected to arrive in New England. We made great time to Brick via the George Washington Bridge and the New Jersey Turnpike (we couldn’t run on the parkways with the truck/trailer rig). We were loaded and headed back to Maine by noon, and all seemed well until we got on the G.W. Bridge and in a traffic jam. The Chevy truck began to sputter and lose power, and in time it was barely running. Cars started to beep and “point” at us (with their middle finger!), and we were only able to make about 5 mph with the sick engine. My mind was racing ahead, imagining our newly purchased boat being left somewhere around New York with very unpleasant possibilities envisioned. We managed to limp to the first I-95 rest stop in Greenwich, Conn., having traveled at between five and 10 mph all the way from the G.W. Bridge. As we pulled into the rest stop in Ct. at around 3:00 p.m., Stacey 32 Points East September 2011

shut off the engine, and when he tried to restart it, it was done. We later learned that the diesel fuel Stacey had hauled with us had ice in it, and the water from that had wiped out several of his injectors. Now, what do we do? Checking in on the cell phone with my wife, I was informed the snowstorm, which was growing bigger, was still coming but had slowed down a little. Stacey, stand-up guy that he is, called Maine and got in touch with a very loyal friend. Stacey asked him to get down to Connecticut with another truck, and he did. The replacement vehicle arrived about 9:30 p.m. We hooked it up to our new Cricket and resumed our odyssey to Maine. We kept getting weather updates, and the nor’easter kept coming. As we crossed into Maine from Portsmouth, N.H., at 2 a.m. Sunday, it began to snow at a rate of two or more inches an hour. We rolled into Biddeford and the General Marine facility about 3:30 a.m. I arrived back home in Georgetown about 5 a.m., exhausted, having been up for about 27 hours. Stacey later shrink-wrapped the boat inside, at his plant, and then delivered it to Harpswell the next week. And that’s how you make the sail-to-power switch. Read how Cricket has performed for us in the October issue of Points East. Ohio native/Maine resident Jim Fetters served eight years as an officer in the Coast Guard. He and wife Carol retired to Maine in 1999, where they cruise, fish, volunteer, and maintain their boats, including the General Marine 26, a 13-foot Boston Whaler, a dinghy and an inflatable. They have owned over 40 boats and have logged over 25,000 cruising miles. editor@pointseast.com

Shared ownership provided enough cruising time and allowed for other family activities. At the time, my three kids were small enough to fit comfortably in the V-berth, and we enjoyed overnights in Newport, and longer trips to Cuttyhunk and Block Island. As my kids grew up, the generational story repeated itself. They developed other interests, and I didn’t have time to really enjoy sailing, so we withdrew from the Pearson 30 partnership, which was a great experience,

and we are all still friends. I switched back to power, acquiring a “classicplastic” Wellcraft V20 Steplift, which was functionally reminiscent of my dad’s Grady White, without any brightwork, resulting in a lot less maintenance. The Wellcraft was great for quick fishing trips and cruising on Narragansett Bay. My kids loved tubing and learned to water ski. For a couple of summer vacations, we trailered the boat to Lake Winnipesaukee, where we rented a cottage for a week at a time. I frequently fished on Narragansett Bay in the evening after work, practicing techniques to catch striped bass and fluke learned from seminars by Charlie Soares, a wellknown fishing guide and writer in southeastern New England. I became proficient at picking my way around the reefs off Newport, trolling up some nice fish. For the first couple of seasons, I kept the Wellcraft on a trailer, but after 13 years on the waiting list, my name finally came up for a mooring in the Barrington River. One of the things I missed with the Wellcraft was the ability to do overnight trips, so a few years after securing the mooring, we moved up to a 26-foot Trojan Express Cruiser, Lots a Luck. She was built in 1975, with a fiberglass hull, but quite a lot of wood structure, which required many repairs and improvements. With three kids going into college, I managed my boating expenses on a shoestring, so I did almost all the maintenance myself. Over a few years, I rebuilt or replaced all of her mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems.

A Clean Smell is Not Always Clean Air… What artificial smell do you associate with fresh, clean air? Could it be that ever distinct pine forest? Maybe it’s a vast meadow of wildflowers? Or how about a gentle ocean breeze or possibly even crisp mountain air? Well, what if I told you none of the above! What if I offered the possibility that the aforementioned smells were not at all clean air but instead are most likely causing more harm than good? The fragrances and odors left behind when we use cleaning products or “air fresheners”, intended to give us that “feeling” of fresh air, are actually chemical off- gases better known as VOC’s or Volatile Organic Compounds. In sufficient quantities, VOCs can cause eye, nose, and throat irritations, headaches or dizziness. Now that I have your attention, what if I told you a product exists that can rid the air of impurities like mold, bacteria, fungi and even some viruses and leave behind a true clean, fresh smell of simply, nothing. That product is Kanberra Gel.

The Express Cruiser was perfect for my situation. It was small enough for me to confidently singlehand, so I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to rely on finding crew for unplanned outings. But it was also big enough for overnight trips with my wife to Newport and Block Island. Although Lots a Luck was fairly economical with her single Chrysler 318, she would burn five gallons per hour at idle, and seven or eight gph cruising as long as I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t push to the point where the secondaries on the four-barrel carburetor opened up. However, at the end of the 2008 season, when gas peaked over $4 per gallon at the marinas, I became motivated, by a combination of energy consciousness and frugality, to consider switching back to sail. I just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enjoy myself knowing that a round trip from Barrington to Newport was burning over $100 in fuel. In 2009, with fuel prices down off the 2008 spike, I took the opportunity to sell the Trojan, and to start shopping for sailboats. On Labor Day weekend, we started looking seriously at sailboats between 26 and 30 feet. I would have liked to go a little bigger, but my mooring will only accommodate up to a 28-footer, and I was willing to give up a little on the length to stay on it, and keeping the size down helps control the cost

The

launch of a dream

The passage from Newington, N.H., to Baltimore was our first step toward retiring aboard our 36-foot Nauticat motorsailer. It proved to be a fine sea trial for the crew. By Marilyn Hanft For Points East n Oct. 20, 2009, my husband, Sam, and I loaded up our golden retriever, Bonnie, and our ragdoll cat, Zoey, moved onto our 36-foot Nauticat

motorsailer, and headed south. Our long-held dream of retiring on Stella Maris was soon to become a reality. This trip from Newington, N.H., to Baltimore, Md., marked the first step. While I would be retiring from editor@pointseast.com

40 years of nursing in another month, I still had two more fourday stretches to work. I had arranged to have 10 days off and work four days every other weekend, so we had nine days to get to Baltimore and return to New Hampshire in time for my next shift. We knew it might be a little tight, but we were excited to finally get under way. Because of the fixed bridges downriver from Great Bay Marine, in Newington, we had to leave no earlier than two to three hours before low tide. Unfortunately, low tide was not until 2130. I dislike cruising overnight but had no real choice. The sun shone brightly that Tuesday, with temperatures in the low 70s and calm winds. We cast off about 1930, approaching the fixed bridges with great caution because we might be close on clearance. As we drew near the bridges, we were suddenly caught in the current. Our speed jumped. Sam firewalled the throttle and managed to keep some control as we swept under the bridges at about 10 knots, sideways! With a sigh of relief, we came out the other side unscathed. After that hair-raising start, we settled down for the rest of the trip downriver, across Bigelow Bight to Massachusetts Bay and the Cape Cod Canal. I went to bed for a nap. At 2400 Sam woke me to take the watch. The weather remained clear and calm. We were crossing the shipping lanes between Cape Ann and Boston, making about 5 knots. As I was orienting myself to our position and current heading, the VHF radio suddenly spit out “… calling the sailboat at (roughly our position)….” “Sam, I think they’re calling us.” I said. “Who?” he asked. “I didn’t catch the name, but we’re the only sailboat around here, aren’t we?” Points East September 2011

We have a brand new Furuno NavNet chartplotter/GPS/radar, another Furuno chartplotter GPS that is several years old, paper charts, and a third GPS plotter on Sam’s computer. All of the electronics were in use, as were the paper charts. None of them indicated a restricted area. We made sure to point this out to Harbor Patrol as we complied with their instructions and went on our way. I began to wonder if this trip might be jinxed! After that, the night passed uneventfully enough. We entered the Cape Cod Canal late Wednesday afternoon, arriving at the Buzzard’s Bay end about 1600. We pulled into Onset Marina, topped off our fuel tanks, and settled onto a mooring for the night. In the morning, we headed down Buzzard’s Bay, planning to make Block Island by early evening. Gale-force winds were forecast for Saturday, and we planned to ride it out in the harbor there before continuing on to Cape May, N.J. By late afternoon, however, the winds had climbed to 15 to 20 knots, and the seas were about four to six feet, hitting us on the nose and slowing our speed to about 3.5 knots. Sam communed with the charts and

decided to change our itinerary. Point Judith, R.I., with its Harbor of Refuge, was a few miles closer than Block Island and had the advantage of being well marked

with lighted buoys. We arrived there and dropped the hook about 2130. For the next two days, we sat at anchor and watched the wind blow. Every now and then a boat would pass by, leaving us wondering what could be so urgent that they would venture out into this weather. Even within the Harbor of Refuge, the waves were averaging two to three feet. How much higher must they be offshore?

By Sunday morning we were ready to get under way again. The wind had backed off to about 10 to 15 knots, and the seas were slowly subsiding. After discussing the pros and cons of which route to take at this point, we opted for the route down Long Island Sound and through New York City instead of the outside route we had planned to follow. We weighed anchor about 0900, heading west. Gradually the skies

cleared, the waves subsided, and Stella Maris motored calmly toward New York City. As darkness fell, the lights along the Connecticut shoreline bloomed, keeping us company as we motored along. Occasionally a tugboat and barge would pass by to break the monotony. By sunrise, we were approaching the East River. The day dawned with bright sunshine, calm seas and light winds as we entered the East River. As we arrived at a narrow spot, Sam said, “Guess what? This is Hell’s Gate.” I looked around at the calm water and marveled that I had been so nervous about traversing this point. Quite by accident, we went through it at slack tide. As we motored slowly through New York City, the scene could not have been more idyllic. Seeing the city from the water gives a totally different perspective to the passing mariner. We continued on our way past the Empire State Building, the Chrysler Building, the United Nations, under the Brooklyn Bridge, and out past The Battery. As we reached the end of Manhattan Island, exiting the river into the harbor, I took a picture of what was no longer there; 9/11 came back to me vividly. Then I looked across the harbor to Ellis Island, Governor’s Island, and the Statue of Liberty. As we drew close to the Statue of Liberty, a feeling came over me that took me totally by surprise. I expected to enjoy seeing Lady Liberty in the flesh, so to speak. I did not expect the profound feeling of awe as I gazed up at her lovely countenance. She is, indeed, marvelous to behold. Dodging around the fleet of Staten Island ferries, the many barges pushed by tugboats, and various other craft flitting about like water bugs, we headed out through the Verrazano Narrows toward Sandy Hook. Once there, Sam shut the engine down briefly to check the various fluids. Firing the editor@pointseast.com


engine up again, he turned our bow south as the sun set. Gradually, the wind began to build again. By daybreak a south-southwest wind clocked 20 to 25 knots, catching us about 20 degrees on the starboard bow. As the wind built, so did the seas. By mid-afternoon, I stood in our pilothouse as we moved through a trough looking up at the next swell in line. This was not a comfortable view. The waves also caught us at about 20 degrees, although much less consistently than the wind. With the tide and wind at an angle to each other, the seas tended to be confused. All of this cut our speed to three to four knots once more. All day long we slogged toward Cape May. Finally, we made the turn for Cape May Harbor. Now we surfed the swells, taking care not to get pooped. We joined three other boats anchored in front of the Coast Guard station, dropping the hook at 1630 Tuesday afternoon. At this point, we had two more days and 80-plus miles to go. We would need to leave early in the morning. Sam woke me up at 0400, handing me a cup of coffee. I sat at the dining table to drink it and toast a bagel when, suddenly, Sam stuck his head in the door. “Get some clothes on quick; we’re dragging,” he yelled. I pulled on some sweatpants and my lightweight foul-weather jacket, as I stepped into my boat shoes and scrambled out on deck. Grabbing the windlass handle, I began hauling up our anchor. About that time, I realized not only was it pitch dark, it also was pouring rain! We got the anchor up, and Sam got us under way. At this point, we decided that we might as well leave and headed over to the Cape May Canal entrance. Just then, as I let the dog into the pilothouse, lightning flashed and thunder rolled. I yelped and jumped away from the door as the dog flew inside and huddled at my feet. Luckily, after another crack or two, the storm www.pointseast.com

went back to just light rain, gradually stopping as we made our way through the canal. At the end of the canal, we exited into Delaware Bay and turned north up the shipping channel. The day slowly lightened around us but remained overcast. Every now and then a powerboat would pass us, but traffic was initially very light. That was fortunate as about 1030 we went into a fog bank, which

stayed with us until about 1400. As fogs go, this one didn’t even cause us to fire up the radar. By Maine standards, it was only an annoyance. About 1400 the fog lifted, the skies cleared, and the traffic picked up. We saw many tugboats pushing barges, and one decommissioned helicopter carrier being nudged downstream by four tugs. We reached the Chesapeake and

Delaware Canal as the sun sank in the west. The transit through the C&D Canal went easily except for passing a very large car-hauler. Sam took us to the edge of the canal, slowed down, and held his breath, but the huge vessel passed without noticeable difficulty. At the Chesapeake end, we turned south again, headed for the Patapsco River and Baltimore. We had chosen to make Baltimore our first stop because we had friends, Jim and Peggy, in a marina there. Jim had said to call him when we got close, even though it would be in the wee hours of the morning. As the night wore on, we passed, or were passed by, numerous barges. It almost became a game for me, with victory being a safe pass. Finally, we turned into the Patapsco, glided past Fort McHenry to port, and sighted the Anchorage Marina. It looked like home. Jim guided us to the slip we had been assigned by waving a flashlight at us. As our clock chimed 8 bells (0400), we tied up to the dock and stopped our engine. We’d made it. After a four-hour nap, our rental car was delivered, and we loaded up for the return trip to New Hampshire. The trip that had taken us nine days and many anxious moments by water now took us only 10 hours on land. As we discussed the trip on the drive home, I realized that any doubts I had entertained about our plans were gone. If I didn’t back out on this trip, I never would.

Our worst-case-scenario passage estimate was 30 hours, but Ambiance limped into Provincetown 45 hours after departure, soundly thrashed by a storm. By Eric Bratcher For Points East y girlfriend Jen and I had been cooped up in the cabin of our 27-foot sloop Ambiance for over a week in the small harbor at Port Clyde, Maine. We had been waiting for favorable weather to make a passage to Cape Cod and begin a 10-month cruise to the Bahamas and back. I had been eagerly listening to forecasts all week – morning, noon, and night. The forecast on the morning of Oct. 18 promised that the rain and strong winds would finally die down. At 0730 that morning, we mo-

tored out of the harbor for our expected 30-hour sail to the Cape, in what was predicted to be favorable weather. The forecast called for the seas to drop when the southerly wind shifted to the west. The westerly breeze would provide us with a nice reach for the 130-mile passage. The weather gods must not have read the forecast. The expected shift to a westerly wind never materialized, but we were determined to make our way south. We knew that seas would be rough at first, but we both pledged to use our harnesses any time weren’t belowdecks. We weren’t concerned with seasickness since I have never editor@pointseast.com


I suspect that they were wondering about the sanity of someone sailing a small boat 20 miles offshore in the rough conditions we were experiencing. experienced it on any passages, and Jen had also been fortunate during her coastal cruising with me. Only a few miles out of the harbor, we began to feel an unexpected queasiness from the rough motion of beating into the chop under our reefed mainsail. The waves had only shortened to six or seven feet near shore, and the wind was steady at 20 to 25 knots from the south. This was the roughest passage I’d made in a small boat, but I was able to adjust to the motion after a few hours. Despite plenty of coastal cruising, this was my girlfriend’s first offshore passage, and her stomach would not adjust to the pounding that Ambiance was taking. During the next 24-hour period, Jen learned that Saltines can be eaten for each of the three daily meals. We crawled along against the wind as night fell with the moon illuminating our surroundings. Our autopilot steered for us while we took turns napping. Our cat, Pepper, sat perched in his spot under the dodger, or on our respective laps. Jen and I had planned taking three-hour watches, but with her not feeling well, I took four hours of duty to her two hours. This allowed her to sleep through the worst part of her seasickness. With the exception of one close encounter with a fishing boat at 0300, we didn’t see any other ves-

When the sun came up, I looked back and noticed the dinghy we were towing was completely submerged. Our paddle was gone, and only two orange life vests that had been tied to the seats could be seen above the surface where the two tow lines disappeared into the water. aboard alongside of the cockpit. We carefully planned our moves, rigged safety lines and snatch blocks on the leeward toe rail, and gave Plan B a try. No success: We just did not have the physical strength to get the tender aboard. On to Plan C. We rerigged our lines, changed the angles of attack, and tried again. Even by using a cockpit winch in combination with a snatch block, it was extremely difficult to get the dinghy in the position we needed. It took another half-hour and all of our strength to lift Miss Jenny out of the water and into our cockpit. We even had to lower our dodger since the dinghy’s bow extended forward out of the cockpit. That meant that our protection from the incessant spray was gone as well. It was too risky to try to take the dinghy to the foredeck. In order to access the wheel, we had to reach under the overturned dinghy. How inconsiderate of our autopilot to break down on this trip. We were sore,

bruised and tired at this point, but the activity improved Jen’s appetite. She was finally able to upgrade her diet to include granola bars and tastier pastries. These turned into our main staple for the remainder of the passage as the seas were too rough to cook, and sometimes it was too rough to even make a peanut butter sandwich without sitting on the cabin sole. We discussed whether we should proceed or select a new destination based on our position. With its location on the outermost tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown was still the logical choice for us, even though the wind was against us. We also suspected that if we turned west toward the coast, the anticipated west wind would surely materialize. Ambiance slowly moved toward Cape Cod against the wind and waves. The only other activity we saw this day was a Coast Guard cutter and Coast Guard jet, which were looking for a missing sailboat. We assured them via VHF that we were OK to continue, even though we looked like a

storm-refugee vessel with our dinghy in the cockpit and our dodger collapsed. In the troughs, we were only traveling at one to two knots, so we decided to fire up the diesel to help keep our momentum. At one point during our second afternoon, we felt Ambiance nearly come to a halt unexpectedly. A large clump of seaweed had fouled our propeller while we were crossing the traffic lanes that lead into Boston. The only solution to this problem was for someone to swim under the boat and pull the tangled clumps off the propeller. As an ocean-certified lifeguard, Jen volunteered for the task and took the icy plunge. Within a couple of minutes, she had the prop cleared and we got under way again. While Jen bundled up in warm dry clothes and a sleeping bag, I took the helm. Our second sunset of the passage came and went while we continued on our way south. The lack of regular meals and sleep was really beginning to take its toll on both of us. Jen spent the remainder of the passage on the floor of the cabin, sick and cold. As we rounded the tip of the Cape toward the protection of Provincetown, I was having trouble focusing on the compass. My eyelids and my head kept drooping. Unfortunately, Jen wasn’t able to help me. Finally, at 0230 on Thursday morning, we dropped the sails and rounded the breakwater at Provincetown Harbor.

We picked up the first available mooring that we saw and hoped that we wouldn’t have to explain our uninvited presence to the owner while we grabbed a few quick hours of sleep. Our predicted 30-hour trip estimate (a worst-case scenario) had dragged on to almost 45 hours, but we made it. We stripped out of our soaked clothing and enjoyed some hot soup and, yes, you guessed it, Saltines. When the sun rose, we realized we looked like a derelict vessel: Our dinghy was in the cockpit, our dodger was collapsed, and our wet clothes were hanging from the lifelines. We spent the day purchasing some necessities (a new paddle, a replacement fender, diet cola, and more Saltines). The local marina gave us a free slip and warm showers: What a luxury! We roamed the streets that afternoon and tried not to gawk at the oddly dressed characters around us. Even though we weren’t used to the sights ashore there, Provincetown was hospitable and a welcome haven before we moved south again the following morning.

THERACIN

Using guile and no less amount of skill, several yachts managed to escape a midocean windless zone, including 65-foot Zaraffa, above, skippered by 80-year-old Vermonter Huntington Sheldon.

Zaraffa, Vermont octogenarian ace the Transatlantic Just after sunrise July 12, Zaraffa passed The Lizard in the south of England to finish the Transatlantic Race 2011, and her 80-yearold skipper, Huntington Sheldon (Shelburne, Vt.), the oldest competitor in the race, had guided the Reichel Pugh 65 over 2,975 miles in less than 12 days. By that time Zaraffa was over 400 miles ahead of any other yacht in Class IRC 3, winning the class by a handsome margin. On Sunday, 10 July, at 16h 08m UTC, Rambler 100, skippered by George David (Hartford, Conn.), was the first yacht to cross the finish line with an elapsed time of six days, 22 hours, eight minutes and two seconds, a new record for the 2,975-mile course from Newport, R.I., to Lizard Point, South Cornwall, U.K. On Zaraffa, Sheldon took both line honors and the overall win of the 2003 Daimler Chrysler North Atlantic Challenge, which also started in Newport, but finished in Hamburg, Germany (with a course time of 13 days, 15 hours, 7 minutes and 28 seconds). He subsequently donated the yacht to the U.S. Naval

Carina, with a crew of five fathers and five sons, was beaten to the finish lin after nearly three weeks at sea.

By Capt. John Smith For Points East Those involved in the Christmas Cove Regatta held on July 16-17 got a taste of what racing was like in the ’30s when large fleets of classic daysailers graced the waters off Boothbay Harbor, Maine. Twenty-two boats competed in perfect weather on different courses set for each class between the Thread of Life, South Bristol Gut, East Boothbay and the Hypocrites bell buoy. Joining the regatta this year from all over the midcoast was an eight boat Herreshoff 12 1/2 and Bullseye class fleet, making the event the most successful ever with five races in each of three sailboat classes. Ten CC-21 sloops competed for 2011 National Championship. First place honors went to Stuart MacNeil, skippering Blue Skies to a never-before achieved five bullets. Second place went to the always formidable Brook Spaulding-Ted Dey team aboard High Rustler. Fleet Commodore Brigham Prescott aboard Dancer overcame a spinnaker breakdown in Race 3 to pull out a very respectable 3rd place for the regatta with only one point separating the next three places. In the Herreshoff 12-1/2 and Bullseye classes, eight boats competed with Cynthia Connard and Mallory Brown aboard Zephyr finishing 1st. When both finished with 14 points overall, Robert Williams won the tiebreaker aboard Bullesye Two Step versus Bob Noyes in Dovekie. Four boats competed in a PHRF class with George Hughes aboard Susan, a Dark Harbor 20, defeating Alerions Joy skippered by Sherman Scott in 2nd and Gambit helmed by Mathew Lorentzen in 3rd.

In the two-boat Open Class, Lloyd Thornburg (St. Barthelemy), skipper of the Gunboat 66 Phaedo, built by Gunboat International, of Newport, R.I., was ecstatic when the Lamborghini-orange multihull crossed the finish line with a 100mile lead, in a David and Goliath battle, with the 289-foot Maltese Falcon. With four fathers and five sons onboard, Carina got away to a great start with Rives Potts, Jr. (Essex, Conn.) at the helm. Within a few days, Carina had extended on the fleet by some by 400 miles. Later in the race, however, an area of high pressure mid-Atlantic was to be their nemesis, as well as that of many others. After nearly three weeks at sea, when Carina looked likely to win Class IRC Four on corrected time, their hopes were dashed when Dawn Star, co-skippered by Bill Hubbard and his son Will Hubbard (both New York, N.Y.), claimed the class victory by less than an hour.

Hang onto your hat on Tartan 37 fiction drama By Sandy Marsters For Points East

Superior Run By Tom Wells, self-published by the author, 330 pages, www.createspace.com, $12.95.

Let’s get one thing straight right now: If you are going to try to outrun evil, nasty guys with guns and without consciences, don’t use a sailboat, especially not one with a theoretical hull speed of seven knots or so, because if the bad guys have powerboats, they’ll eventually find you, and the way they treat you will certainly not be theoretical. OK, but say you have the bad sense, when you get in trouble with the evil ones, to turn to a boating friend for help, and that guy turns out not only to be very nice guy but a very competent sailor, then what? Go and enjoy the cruising in the lovely Apostle Islands of Lake Superior on your friend’s Tartan 37, Pipe Dream, thereby putting his life in grave danger, and eventually sucking a few other innocents into the

mess, or go to the airport, catch a flight to Cancun, and hope things settle down by the time you get home? It’s not clear whether Rich Perry, the protagonist in this first self-published novel by boating writer Tom Wells, even considered the latter, but he wastes no time doing the former. What results is a combination fun, lovely cruise with an old college buddy, Paul Findlay, and a nasty nail-biter of a manhunt at sea. Lately Findlay has been doing the cruising thing, mostly singlehanded since breaking up with his wife. He’s a footloose spirit, a writer, and a meticulous yachtsman, which we see as Wells describes every act of seamanship in great detail (he is, after all, an engineer), not just for the benefit of the landlubber (including a nice glossary of boating terms) but also because that’s clearly Wells behind the helm of Pipe Dream. Here he describes getting under way. “The ritual was automatic: Coil and stow the dock-

lines; pull in the fenders and stow them in the cockpit locker; check the lifeline boarding gates to assure the pelican hooks are firmly engaged; put the boat noseto-wind, idling forward; connect the main halyard, free the mainsail from its cover and ties, raise it, and tension the luff.. . . . .” etc., etc. The non-sailor Perry is clearly impressed. “That was quick!” marveled Rich. “It looks like you’ve been doing this for a while.” Findlay shrugs. “‘Yeah, a year or two.’ Paul was grinning at the thought. He had been ‘doing this’ longer than he cared to remember.” He’s a cool guy, and that’s going to come in very handy on this little cruise. When things aren’t going really badly, as they usually are – thanks to the stereotyped thugs who find their way into the plot and the especially evil Ted Mansfield, the psycho-engine behind all the action – the cruising is pretty good. Perry is smitten by life on the water. “I always figured you for a crazy man,” Perry tells his captain friend. “I never realized how great this could be!” Actually, the careful descriptions of the scenery and the cruising life got me wanting to be on the boat, exploring the Apostle Islands, improving my seamanship. And though the characters of the thugs, and their boss, Mansfield, are predictable and wooden, and Perry is kind of a dope, Findlay is a very likable, well-

New ACC marina directory covers Canadian facilities Atlantic Cruising Club has published the 8th edition of their guide to New England & Canadian Maritime Marinas. The new guide presents full page, boater-biased marina reports, with ratings and reviews of 300 marinas between Halifax, Nova Scotia, and Wickford, R.I. The 8th edition extends ACC’s marina coverage into the Canadian Maritimes, and now covers many of the stops Points East’s 2011 Fundy Flotilla visited, including Grand Manan, Royal Kenebeccasis YC, and Gagetown Marina. The 300 marinas covered in the new guide, including about 45 east of Bar Harbor, Maine, represent virtually all of the marinas in this region that offer overnight slips and moorings for cruisers. As in the 7th edition, the 8th edition includes a bound-in DVD installation program for ACC’s Digital Guide, which contains all of the info in the print volume plus both a geographic and criteria-based search interface and up to 25 photos of each marina facility – all a mouse click away.

YARDWORK/People and proj ects

84-year-old schooner Adventure will sail again By Steve Cartwright For Points East Preservation of a seasoned piece of Gloucester’s famed fishery is under way, and the 121-foot Adventure, a one-time Maine windjammer, just needs a lot of friends, and maybe another million dollars, to be rolling along, gracing the sea, as she has already done for eight decades. Capt. Jim Sharp, of Camden, years ago rescued the last of the Grand Banks doryfishing fleet and restored it as a passenger vessel. Twenty-two years ago, ready for different challenges, he gave the 121-foot Adventure over to the people of Gloucester. Already, more than $2.5 million has been spent rebuilding Adventure’s hull. In 1926, it cost owner Jeff Thomas about $65,000 to have the schooner built from scratch by the James & Son yard in nearby Essex. It may be quite awhile before Adventure is relaunched, but supporters are confident that day will

tribute to the thousands of fishermen from Gloucester who sweated and shivered and rowed and hauled and sometimes did not return from the sea. Captain Sharp, who now runs a Rockland marine museum, requested that Adventure “continue to be cared for, prominently displayed as a monument to the city of Gloucester, and used for the education and pleasure of the public.” Sixteen years ago, the schooner received the honor of being designated a National Historic Landmark, an odd title for a boat. Adventure was known as a swift and seaworthy vessel, a highliner and the most profitable Gloucester fishing schooner on record. Its crews landed an estimated $4 million worth of cod and haddock over the years. By 1953, her final fishing voyage, she was the last dory trawler at work. For the next three decades, the vessel was the queen of the Camden windjammer fleet, taking tourists on short voyages that included lots of live music and lobster. When Sharp rescued Adventure, he recalled, “I re-rigged her, gutted her. The Adventure is my firstborn,” he wrote in his autobiography, “With Reckless Abandon.” Sailing the Adventure was to me like sailing a living museum.” The Adventure continues.

International Marine marks 40 years creating seabooks Forty years after International Marine’s first book was published, the nautical publisher salutes its founder, Roger C. Taylor, and the hundreds of boatbuilders, designers, and sailors who have contributed to the thousands of good books about boats now found around the world. Taylor, former editor-inchief of Naval Institute Press, traveled overland, north and east from Annapolis, Md., to Camden, Maine, to launch International Marine. For 20 years, Roger wrote and published books about boats, teasing stories and concepts from boat designers and their builders, creating authors out of men without high school diplomas but who had earned their degrees in hundreds of boat launchings. Through books that piqued interest in the sea and the boats on it, Taylor also made sailors out of landlubbers. His publishing company did much to promote the writings of L. Francis Herreshoff, K. Adlard Coles, Uffa Fox, John G. Alden, Bob Steward, Gary Jobson, Chris White, John Gardner, Dynamite Payson. International Marine joined the McGrawHill Professional book group in 1989.

Looking south at Damariscove. The building in the foreground houses an island nature display.

Musings at Damariscove or all the demands on our hours, crafting something memorable from the precious moments left to our imaginations is a worthy task. Such were my thoughts as the Leight closed on the slender stripe of a rock-girt bight on Maine’s Damariscove Island. Inching toward the old Coast Guard station, uneasy seas set the mast to describing wide arcs against the sky. Wrack and weed swayed sinuously at water’s edge, and a few yards beyond swells of grass and greenery shouldered their way above the still waters. For all the wildness of this place on the edge of the Atlantic, a few boat lengths into the teapot of an anchorage the waters quieted. Earnest proclamations of terns and eider ducks came to our notice, as did the fact that well along in a lifetime of sailing there is still a visceral thrill to such moments. Anchoring fore and aft a few yards off a stone quay, the original incarnation of which served fishermen dating back to the late 1500s, it wasn’t hard to imagine the community that once populated the barren foundations looking down on the head of navigation – and ruminate on life close to the bone.

As morning matured, a chorus of insect-kind slowly rose to a drone from millions of strident voices deep in the bush. Though many such creatures are around for but a short time, they go about their business vigorously, and a staggering variety of voices made it seem a veritable Serengeti. A great vault of sky dominates the island. Land is a narrow sward, and the wind seems restless. There’s a drama to it, and when the weather kicks up it can make one’s occupation seem tenuous. Packing lunch and putting ashore, the mate and I struck out on a narrow path worn into the flinty soil. Birds of more stripes than we know shrilled and piped, responding to instincts that seemed more acute than our own. After lunch on a billow of granite along the east shore, we watched black ants scurrying about industriously. There seemed a certainty to their mission in life. I’m still wondering what ours is. Peering south to the empty curve of horizon, it occurred to me that maybe we have too many plans and not enough impulses. Later, reclining against the sun-warmed ledge, we listened to the muse of surf, crickets, birds and the Points East September 2011

wind. In the afternoon, we took to the trail once again. Bees hovered over buttercups, daisies and Indian paintbrushes scattered along old stonewalls that were laboriously laid up at the dawning of our republic. Near the old lookout tower on the east shore we came upon a tiny cluster of wild strawberries, ruby nuggets possessed of an ambrosial sweetness that made us shiver. The perfection of wildness. Everything else is an imitation. Later, an old Outward Bound yawl boat sailed in. Engineless, it was manned by four young men bound for Nova Scotia. They made a convincing case for the philosophy that if you’re not in a hurry, you can go almost anywhere. After dinner, the North Star appeared and was soon joined by a cast of millions. The wind took off. The water was silky black. Galaxies flashed above and below. A Wilson’s petrel skimmed past the sloop, a knife-edge of living grace. Feeling small and honoring time.

The sail-training vessel Kestrel is the traveling good-will ambassador of the Herreshoff Marine Museum, and she is used to teach seamanship, safety, and navigation. She is also available for classic racing and pleasure charters. FMI: email: education@herreshoff.org.

This action promptly gave way to a flurry of giants by the end of the first week in August. Cal Robinson and Jim Hinkley told us of a 77-inch fish they had just landed during the Sturdivant Island Tuna Tournament based out of Spring Point Marina in South Portland, Maine. Dozens of these behemoths have been caught in the last few days, leading to a flurry of interest in this exciting fishery. Big mackerel Photo by Matt Day and lively herring are both producing on slack tides, Tim Cavenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 46-inch striper was caught in Saco Bay in early especially the evening tides. August.

Joe Stevenson has been landing a few bluefish, like this hefty chopper, near Goose Rocks this summer.

marsh flats inside the Saco River and the Dunstan River, in Scarborough, are all producing fish in the 28- to 32-inch size range. Even at midday, these linesides can sometimes be found feeding in surprisingly shallow water. For natural baits, a live tinker mackerel can’t be beat. For artificials, try bumping an Al Gag’s Whip-it Eel on the sand bottom. Groundfishing is holding up quite well so far. SeaWolfe jigs, with natural shrimp on the teaser hook, are producing keeper cod and haddock on the same drop. Try the north end of Jeffreys Ledge for steady action. Production on Tantas Ledge has slowed a bit, though very early morning anglers are finding a few market size cod. Tight Lines!! Marco Iamothe is a teacher by day and a fisherman by summer – in the Saco River for salt water and in the Allagash for fresh. He has been at Saco Bay Tackle for three years, and he crams most of his hours into the weekends. Stop in and say hello to him. www.pointseast.com

Light and Charlestown, R.I., the striped bass fishing is great. Live eels, diamond jigs, top-water plugs and wire are all effective means by which to land a big cow. Harry Templeton landed a 42.1-pounder on a live eel fishing Block Island, while junior angler Matthew Jarbeau has weighed in 38.6- and 36.4-pound stripers. The Southwest Ledge and southeast corner of Block will be prime striper locations throughout October. The rocky bottom areas outside the Center Wall of Point Judith’s Harbor of Refuge, Nebraska Shoals, and Green Hill are prime scup and seabass fishing grounds, and fast action for these bottom feeders should continue through October. Tautog fishing is

good in 20 to 25 feet of water, in tight, along the south shore rocky bottom grounds with green crabs. First appearances of bonito showed mid August in areas to the west, and will move east as the season progresses. Green bonito has already started around the island; Deadly Dicks and Swedish Pimples work best casting, but trolling Fast Trac Rebels can also be productive. Angler Brad Thompson of Gales Ferry, Conn., landed the new R.I. state record for red drum while fishing the Wekapaug Breachway casting a pogy chunk for stripers near the end of July. The fish weighed 48.9 pounds, had a 29 1/2-inch girth, and was 49 1/2” long.

This just in: Rhode Island fisherman Louis DeFusco, fishing from Hot Reels, landed another R.I. state record, this one a 434-pound broadbill swordfish caught at Hydrographer Canyon. The bluefin tuna fishing has remained consistent since the beginning of July. Anglers trolling south of Block Island, near the Fairway Buoy and Acid Barge, along with the Mud Hole, have had good results. Lots of bait will help settle these fish in. Lets hope for a chunk bite come September and, possibly, for the chance for some giant tuna as water temperatures decrease. Canyon tuna fishing has had its ups and downs.

West Atlantis has proven the best location however conditions change daily. Check with local tackle shops and temperature charts to help decide which location to go. Lets hope for some more awesome weather. Elisa Jackman, a Point Judith Pond native, has managed the tackle shop at Wakefield, R.I.’s Snug Harbor Marina (www.snugharbormarina.com) for over 16 years and has spent her life fishing the waters of Block Island Sound.

Great cause. Cash prizes. The Leo Almeida Memorial Striped Bass tournament is the only tournament of its kind dedicated to the fishermen and women of Boston’s North Shore.

Bob Gerwig, of Brewer’s South Freeport Marine, explains to the author – who lives with a three-cylinder Yamaha and a four-cylinder Westerbeke — how injector pumps work.

New eyes for my mechanic ’m not much good at fixing things, and I have trouble visualizing how machines work. I’m certainly not a mechanic. Yet there I was in South Freeport, Maine on a Saturday in January to learn about marine diesel engines. I live with two of them: a Westerbeke four-cylinder

in a sailboat and a three-cylinder Yamaha in a powerboat. I also live with two men who know something about them. My husband and son take the lead on all things mechanical, but when I was given the powerboat for a birthday present, I was damned if I was going to be helpless when it came to the fundamentals editor@pointseast.com


of maintaining and troubleshooting the engine. I went to the seminar, jointly sponsored by Points East and Brewer’s South Freeport Marine, anticipating a practical class. It was that, but it gave me more than I expected. By the end of the day I could appreciate mechanics as a discipline, and understand how a mechanic visualizes an engine system, assesses how it’s operating, ranks symptoms for their diagnostic significance, and puzzles out a hypothesis and solution for whatever is plaguing the engine. In short, I came away with profound respect for how a mechanic approaches the work. The teacher was Bob Gerwig, a gentleman who has worked at Brewer’s for years – and at the predecessor’s boat yard, and at the boat yard before that one. Bob exuded calm, knowledge, and the kind of quiet inquisitiveness I’d want any mechanic to have when figuring out my engine problem. I was the greenest tenderfoot in the class. The other students were a college professor from Vermont, who already knew how to find an air lock and had a grand ambition to sail to the Great Lakes; a contractor from New Hampshire, who knew gas engines well and had just acquired a diesel-powered boat; and my husband, who over many years of sailing had tinkered with engines out of necessity. We assembled inside Brewer’s shop where Bob had laid out a collection of rings, pistons and other parts.

Mechanics’ boxes stood by empty workbenches, their tools neatly organized. Outside was bright sunshine and bitter cold; inside, the scent of freshly brewed coffee mixed with a hint of the sweet smell of diesel fuel. We covered the basics – safety, parts list, build sheet, manuals – before moving on to the engines. Engines, plural. Bob had three engines in the room – a Westerbeke, a Yamaha, and a Cummins – and throughout the day he used them and various loose parts to demonstrate engine design and function. He explained how a diesel engine works, how the pistons compress air to create the heated environment into which a tiny amount of fuel is injected so it can explode, forcing the pistons down and thrusting movement into the drive shaft. I was struck by how a diesel engine requires precision – in timing, spacing and machining of parts – to produce an elegantly simple yet powerful propulsion system. Once we had the basic concept, we moved on to different systems in the engine: air, fuel, oil and cooling. They’re all essential, but I found the fuel and oil explanation most interesting. Bob traced the fuel’s progress through the engine, starting with the tank and moving through the primary filter, into the lift pump, through the secondary filter and on to the injectors. As we discussed what can go wrong – from dirty fuel and filters, to malfunction of the pump, to mistimed injection – I was impressed with the

methodology of effective troubleshooting. Every field has its own way of organizing relevant information and solving problems, and I was coming to understand the approach for mechanical problems, a whole new world for me. When Bob tested an injector that had been removed from an engine, and we saw for ourselves the spray of atomized fuel, I appreciated the steps a mechanic has to follow to produce the ideal spray pattern. I also could see how a mechanic’s work is related to larger concerns of industry and business, particularly when we talked about lubricating oil. Bob drew a simple diagram of an oil refinery, and I saw for the first time what products are processed from the crude. We covered viscosity ratings, synthetic oils and oil sampling, a small but important technique that tests used oil to diagnose the health of the inside of the engine. While sampling is optional for an individual boat owner, anyone who runs a fleet of boats or trucks will use the technique. We talked about synthetic oils and how large commercial users work with refiners to create new products. We touched on the regulations for disposing of oil and other waste, and Bob told us about a creative recycling plan where a fellow picks up used oil from the yard and trucks it to the Midwest for cement production. When we got to the cooling system, Bob passed

around a sea strainer. With the strainer in my hand, I could understand why it needs to be kept clean and allow water to pass freely into the heat exchanger. He told us to watch out for tiny mussels that attach themselves to a strainer and, with warmer ocean temperatures, grow rapidly until they clog it. This is the kind of thing a mechanic’s mind will think of when he’s figuring out why an engine is overheating. By the end of the afternoon, we students were ready to troubleshoot problems, everything from white smoke in the exhaust to black smoke from the engine. Of course, we won’t get it right every time, but we can probably puzzle out the basics and fix some of them. When I do call my mechanic, as will inevitably happen, and I see him raise the engine cover, I’ll understand something about what he’s looking for. I’ll know how the questions he’s asking and the parts he’s testing fit into his methodology, and for sure I’ll be impressed with how his mind engages with his hands to fix the problem. For now, I’m off to check the oil and start the engine, and enjoy a few hours on the water. Kathleen C. Stone and her husband keep their boats in Maine’s Pemaquid Harbor, and they cruise the coast from there. Her son, a student at Vermont Technical College majoring in diesel-power technology, provides inspiration to learn more about boat engines and systems.
