The Deck Perspective

The best thing about summer where I live in coastal Connecticut—and we’re in the thick of it as I write this—is the way we can live within a stone’s throw of the Sound (as in Long Island Sound) yet manage to keep things separate enough that it offers a true disconnect. By disconnect I don’t mean it in the what the hell is going on with this Wi-Fi? way but in the good unplugged way, that feel the warmth of the summer sun on your shoulders way. Keeping a boat nearby is the surest way to effect a much-needed escape, even for a little while. It’s funny, the difference I feel from when my feet are on my driveway to when they actually touch the deck of a boat, is downright stark.

Often puzzled, never stumped: The author figures every question has at least one good answer.

Sometimes the best navigational aid is in front of you.


In 2013, I was asked to take two couples from Stuart, Florida, to New Orleans in a 49-foot Eastbay for Jazz Fest, a route I was very familiar with. During preparation for this trip I met Capt. Stan Morse and his best mate Judy onboard their boat, Folly, in a mooring field on the South Fork of the St. Lucie River in Stuart. They were in the process of returning home to Destin, Florida, after several months of island hopping. 

Sometimes the best navigational aid is right in front of your face.
