    There are two kinds of boaters: those who have run aground, and those who lie about it.

    It would be nice to have the folks in the photos identified....
    What's not on a boat costs nothing, weighs nothing, and can't break

    So glad our unusual friend from the Central Valley seems to be having the time of his life.

    I remember when he declared he was going to abandon us, and then had to be vociferously exhorted to make his way to Paul and Kat's. And now, here he is, so many miles from home.

    What a story!

    Our son got married five years ago on the dock at the Long Island Maritime Museum. The reception was held next door at a local country club. During the cocktail hour, I snuck back to the museum to check out the boathouse.
    Lots of great boats to enjoy!!
    I was born on a wooden boat that I built myself.

    You don’t have to exaggerate! It was awesome talking to you both. I am overwhelmed repeatedly by the grace and class of the denizens of this place.

    I didn't take nearly as many pics as I usually do but I won't make excuses. Here's what little I have.

    Jim's vise. Does it make you jealous? It does me.

    More friend pics. L to R:

    Many thanks to Jim and Tracy for putting us all up and feeding us elegantly and to Mary and Stephen, Paul, Norman and Rob for providing food and cheer at the VRBO.

    Cris, we had a time didn't we!

    Oh, about the ride home: It seems I'm fated to be tormented by unexpected transits of Manhattan. I missed a turn and before I realized it I was in a funnel to the tunnel. That would be the Midtown tunnel. Once past the event horizon, there was no possible escape. I wasn't paying attention or the GPS dropped it (I think both) so once more I had to transit Manhattan to eventually get spat out of the Holland Tunnel onto the New Jersey Turnpike. This is exactly what you don't want to have happen, especially in a tiny, low British sports car. I promise never to do that again. I really, really mean it this time. No more bumble-trips to NYC!

    One of the most enduring qualities of an old wooden boat is the smell it imparts to your clothing.
