03 May 2009 | Great Bay Marine, Portsmouth
We launched on Friday... and spent Saturday and early Sunday working on various projects on the boat. Well, Great Bay Marine is a popular place and another boat decided to dock in front of us. The currents here are tricky... and the captain of this boat obviously didn't understand them.. we watched him come closer and quickly realized that he was way too close to us! We tried to call him off..but he jammed us... we had the fenders out to try and stop him, but he was just too big... slammed into our port side... then pushed forward and snagged our pulpit... what could we do... the New Hampshire Marine Patrol were watching but unable to help.... Eventually we managed to push the other cruiser off - and suggested he dock elsewhere! To be fair, the captain was apologetic and promised to make everything right..
So, our first weekend in the water, not even off the dock and we have had some excitement!
