The Maiden Voyage

The Maiden Voyage

Today, the boat is wet. After what seemed like an eternity of waiting I launched the boat this morning with the help of my roommate James. There were certainly some rookie mistakes made (trying to start the engine while it was titled to one side turned out to be my first). To say I was...

Fitzgerald’s V20

A trip to NH

A trip to NH

I decided to drive up to NH today to pick up some of the paperwork on the boat. While I was there, the dogs and I got to take my first spin on the water with the mechanic Gene.
