Getting Ready for the Final Leg

The Cutwater 28 Down East Loop trip continues. After a short hop from Constitution Marina in Boston, the boat is resting snugly at Newport’s Goat Island Marina. The 28 has moved almost every day since August 20. Indeed, this trip is one heck of a shakedown for a new boat.

The Down East Loop - Day 11

BoothBay Harbor to Boston took us three half-day passages thanks to clear skies, calm seas and the Cutwater’s comfortable low cruising speed of 12 to 15 knots. Before leaving Boothbay, Joanne and I ate breakfast with Allan Miller and Pam Burke. I knew Burke from Newburyport where she owned a beautiful wood schooner, named Heart’s Desire.
