First Sail of 2009

The first sail in New England is always a very cold one! It may appear that I'm not having fun yet but it feels good to start the season early and it's nice having Narragansett Bay all to ourselves.

Afloat, Again!

Watching my "home" get splashed yesterday at New England Boatworks (NEB) in Portsmouth, RI.

Now a couple of days work to put her back together again.

Splash Day, Spring '09

After four months ashore and forty-plus inches of snow, I am returning to life afloat because the calendar claims it's spring.

New Transport Hits the Water

Today was a special event for the Event Horizon crew. Our new transportation--a 2008 rigid bottom Avon 310 inflatable rib--was delivered and placed in the water for its first time. We found an excellent deal during the winter through Conanicut Marine's chandlery that also included free storage. We still have our trusty 2004 Avon Rover R280 air bottom, which conveniently roll-ups for storage down below, that we will continue to use while cruising (because my captain refuses to tow a dinghy). Already enjoying the comforts of this larger and sturdier dinghy, and know our guests will too.
