Captain Segull Fishing Charts

Captain Segull Fishing Charts

Exploring Boston Harbor

Exploring Boston Harbor

Today marked the first real use of The Sunset Bandit. I took her out around 4 and didn’t return to around midnight. After multiple dockings the jitters are already becoming a thing of the past. Now, I’m just enjoying the whole experience.  It’s hard to explain how high my expectations were for owning a boat...
