Boat Projects and Sailing Stories

From the Chesapeake to Newfoundland

We acquired the 1980 Peterson 34 offshore racing sloop "Greyhawk" in July 2005, and have been fixing it up (and cruising and racing) ever since!
QUASAR San Juan 21 #555, QUASAR
Since 1999, we've been fixing up "Quasar," our 1973 San Juan 21 trailer sailor.
Laser #811 Laser #811
Back around 1990, we installed a mast step repair kit in our Laser sailing dinghy, #811.
We also occaisionally get to sail on "Galaxy," a 1958 Galaxy 32. In the past, Galaxy was available as a floating cottage for overnight guests at Harborfields Housekeeping Cottages in West Boothbay Harbor, Maine ...
but now, Galaxy is for sale! Contact Us for more information.

Voyage to Newfoundland Cape Dory 36, DIAPENSIA
Over the summer of 2003, we sailed to Newfoundland and back aboard "Diapensia" and maintained a web log for family and friends to follow along.
DIAPENSIA was sold in 2008.

Canoe and Dinghy
At some point, we also acquired an old wood-and-canvas canoe (that was fiberglassed over), and a fiberglass rowing dinghy (yacht tender)

Lightning #12945
Yet another boat joined our fleet in June 2005 -- a Lightning. Like some of the others, this too is in need of some major work... It may be awhile before she is ready to go in the water again (if ever!).
