Let's start with a couple of photos of the Good Ship s/v Susanna.
That's her, in the foreground. There's another boat right behind her, with a green and white spinnaker, named Gentian. We're in the Deer Isle Thorofare, in Maine. We're winning. :-)
In harbor, near Camden, ME.
My Mom, in 2009, I think. She was never happier than aboard Susanna. Sleep well, dear.
On the flatbed which brought her from Maine. That's another story in itself, as she's almost 14 feet tall, and if they couldn't have kept her low, we would have needed to send a pair of escort vehicles to move power lines to let her under.
And finally, ready to go.
I've sailed with my brother a couple of times now, once just the two of us, and it is a lot of fun. But boy oh boy, am I glad it's him thinking about taking care of her and not me! It's a LOT of work.
OK, one down, a few more to go.
