Seafevers BFS to Greenport and Back

Well we did some great sailing this week with only one day of needing the motor which is the best week of sailing luck i have ever had

It became apparent the weather was going to be crap on 7/25 and 7/26

As the crap weather and perfect timing of the flood tide home was setting up a sail home that may never be topped we went with it as 70 miles is a long day

We left Greenport at 6 am and had a nasty ride out to plum gut and after turning west the sled ride begin and the boat would just not go slower than 8 knots with regular surges to 12 knots and a peak speed of 13.2 knots

In a fair bit of great luck we on the mooring in Northport at 4:30 PM

The barbecue

Well i cant bring myself to trust the pressurized stove or the 1700 dollar price of a modern one so 120 dollars on sale seemed a good deal except it was another 60 something dollars for a marginal mount to hold it on the boat that was rated for light duty

Being able to draw and make your own parts does have its advantages
