Wind was 14 knots, temp was 46 degrees, and the air was clear...the perfect day for a sail.

We had plenty of beer and aquavit to hold off the cold. Plus some warm Cider. Perhpas I will go out tomorrow, but I was very happy with today.

Beatiful pictures Noah! And you still want to give the boat away? :confused: :rolleyes:

Those edges don't look soft like the edges of the Chesapeake Bay. Beautiful and as long as you have good sense and can reliably put one foot in front of the other don't "give up the ship". IF you do, then what will you do?

Looks like you got her up to 1000 feet for the fourth shot.

Thanks Noah.

Captain, he's giving away one of his other boats. This is the Hinckley. smile.gif

Great pictures. But I'm not ready for winter!

Captain, he's giving away one of his other boats. This is the Hinckley. Well, now that makes more sense. :rolleyes: Seems I'm always confused. smile.gif Thanks for the clarification.

Well, here it snowed all day Saturday, but I plan to go out today, the forecast says 60F blowing 15-20.

Noah....Didn't you have a heck of a lot of rain over the past three weeks...Flooding???? Where in heck did you find the blue sky? Didn't have much in the CT River valley....
Glad you got out though for what looks like a beautiful day on the water.
Ya know you gotta keep her!!!!!! Take her off the market!!!!!!

Those are fabulous shots :D of Mansfield and Camel's Hump.
I have real fond memories of the Queen City 77 through 81 as UVM undergrad. Remember how the original Ben and Jerry's store was out of an old gas station right up the street from Carbur's.

Now I'm getting nostalgic.
Is there much of an afternoon sailing scene up there in the summer out of Shelburne Bay or otherwise?

Thanks for the comments guys.

Yes, there is a decent Wednesday night and Saturday racing thing going on it Shelburne Bay.

We have gotten lots of rain, and the lake is very high for this time of year. I almost lost my dinghy because the 12ft of beach it sits on is pretty much gone.

Noah...great pics and glad you managed to get away for a sail on a good day...Spent a week and a half with flood tides over the boots on the docks and watching pumpkins from swamped pumpkin patches float past...( CT River. )

Noah- I'm looking down on you from Paul Smiths at 1800 feet. I sail my rebuilt sneakbox and lightning down there on the Lake. But I talked to a fellow who was a New Haven Murray descendent, said they still had a New Haven Sharpie over there on the west coast of New England in Burlington. Know anything about those boats on Lake Champlain?? I would like to know more. Actually, some day I would like to build one! QMBob

Well, well. It seems we weren't that far apart, Noah. We launched at 10 Saturday morning at Otter Creek in Vergennes, spent the night in Partridge Harbor, on the New York side, and pulled out mid-afternoon on Sunday. The views were really amazing with golden foliage, snow-capped mountains, and snow geese migrating. We saw only 2 other sails all weekend. Where are all the diehards? My pictures look pretty much the same as yours except that your Hinckley in the foreground is just a bit more scenic than my Elver. Jim
