In Portsmouth again06/08/2009
We drove back to Great Bay Marine yesterday. It is great to be back on the boat.. we are hoping to leave on Thursday, but the weather forcast is not very promising.. in the meantime... I do enjoy time spent on our "back porch"
Back in Canada....05/27/2009, St. Catharines, ON
Cruising 101... always be careful of where you walk... well I wasn't and fell through an open hatch yesterday... lots of bruises, but no broken bones. I won't be much use as first mate on the boat for a few days, so Captain Dan decided that we would drive home today. I will spend the next week or so recuperating and catching up on stuff at home.... including rescuing Zoe from the kennel...
A busy week...05/09/2009
It's been a busy week. We took the boat out with John on Monday, just down to the bridge and back. There's a storm warning tonight... winds gusting up to 35-40 knots...
Look out!!05/03/2009, 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..
Launch!05/01/2009, Great Bay Marine, Portsmouth N.H.
After a two day delay, we finally launched today. It is great to see Delia Rosa in the water.
Departure for Portsmouth04/26/2009, St. Catharines ON
Finally, the car was packed and we were off to Great Bay Marine, New Hampshire. After a ten hour drive and a late arrival into Portsmouth, we checked into The Anchorage Inn until Delia Rosa can be launched.
