eDIToR’S LoG >

I had the chance this spring tohike part of the AppalachianTrail through the SmokyMountains of Tennessee and North Carolina. My hikecoincided with a wave ofthrough-hikers who hike thetrail from Springer Mountain,Ga., to Mt. Katahdin, Maine, taking about six months tocomplete. After spending fourdays with different groups of

through-hikers I kept thinking about how these hikers, who lookout for each other and have taken on this monumental feat, remind me of the boating community. I think back to times I have been helped by a fellow boater whether helping fix something or imparting knowledge. The through-hikers had thissame mentality — we are all in this together. It reminded mewhy I love boating and the people that I run into at the marinas,conferences and boat shows. We recently exhibited at theAGLCA (America’s Great Loop Cruising Association) SpringRendezvous in Norfolk. The “Loopers” have taken on a similar

challenge as the through-hikers — to circumnavigate the easternpart of the US that also takes about six months. The community,lifestyle, and camaraderie among boaters are the reasons thatMarinalife was started 15 years ago. Here’s to a fun and safe summer of meeting new friends on the water.

The Marinalife team has some new things in store for you thissummer including a new and improved version of our mobile app.It is currently available (for free) for Apple users and soon forAndroid users. The new app allows you to easily find a marina,read reviews and view rates and fuel prices all on a nautical chart.Visit marinalife.com/app to learn more.

The summer issue of Marinalife is jam-packed with articles to help inspire your summer cruising — from Cruising the Chesapeake Bay to Lobster Fest in Rockland, Maine. Also, read about the top dock-and-dine destinations in Massachusettsand cruise with the Trogdons as they pick their favorite waterfront bed and breakfasts in the Pacific Northwest.

We look forward to seeing everyone out on the water this summer!

it will take a little more than an hour to get to kent narrowsfrom Baltimore. kent narrows is used by boaters as a shortcut for accessing the Miles and wye river or eastern Bay,rather than going under the Bay Bridge. However it is also a destination in its own right, with an array of seafoodrestaurants, bars and marinas, and it’s a convenient stopping point before cruising to St. Michaels.

if you are craving the bay’s fresh seafood, you will not bedisappointed by the choices here — Harris Crab House, thenarrows restaurant and Bridges restaurant are just some of the top-notch spots, many of which allow you to dock and dine. if you are ready for some good people watchingand a lively crowd, head to red eye’s dock Bar for the livemusic, bikini contests and potent frozen-drink concoctions.and don’t miss Big owl’s Tiki Bar, where the locals gather to enjoy the gorgeous sunsets.

dock at Piney narrows Yacht Haven (410-643-6600) orMears Point Marina (410-827-8888). another good option is Castle Harbor Marina (410-643-5599), only about twomiles northeast on the Chester river.

Kent Narrows, Md.Baltimore is a great starting point for your journey this summer exploring parts of the middle and upper ChesapeakeBay. The city has been through a tough time lately but welove it as much as ever. now is the time to visit! You couldspend several days in the city, checking out the nationalaquarium and its award-winning blacktip reef exhibit, visiting the Science Center, exploring the american Visionary arts Museum or cheering on the orioles at Camden Yards — all of this is within walking distance of most of the area’s marinas.

Baltimore is famous for its distinct, unique neighborhoods that line the waterfront, including FederalHill, inner Harbor, Harbor east, Little italy, Fells Pointand Canton. no matter which marina and neighborhoodyou choose, it’s easy to get around — water taxi, bike,dingy and regular taxis abound, and a seven-mile pedestrian promenade wraps around the waterfront. Marina options are plentiful, too — there’s BMC at Harborview near Federal Hill; BMC at inner Harbor in the inner Harbor; Harbor east Marina in Harbor east, the closest to Little italy; the Crescent Marina and Henderson’s wharf in Fells Point; and BMC atLighthouse Point Center and anchorage Marina in Canton.

Part 1 — Chesapeake BayThis was one of the highlights of our trip.College friends who were married thesame year as us joined us for our 35th anniversary cruise through the ChesapeakeBay. We made it our quest to find the bestcrab cakes on the bay. We began this leg ofthe trip at Bluewater Yachting Center inhampton, Va., The surf rider restaurantwas the first of our many crab cakes!

The next day brought us to The Tides

inn in irvington, Va., We biked to TheDog and Oyster Winery and had dinnerand of course crab cakes at the Tides inn restaurant.

Zahniser’s Yachting Center insolomons island, Md., was beautiful. Wetook the dinghy all around the islandwhere the topography was so interestingwith cliffs and lovely scenery. We enjoyedcrab cakes at stoney’s seafood house.

Oxford, Md., was one of our favorites

places to explore! All of the quaint homeswere in perfect condition. Many residentspartner with local artists for a contest inwhich they paint a portion of the resident’swhite fence, better known as “onion tops.”We stayed at the Brewer Oxford BoatYard & Marina and had crab cakes atschooner’s on the Creek.

st. Michaels, Md., was another fun spot with lots of shops and restaurants.We docked at st. Michaels Marina, which


Our Rhythm ‘n BluesBon VoyageWelcome Aboard! We departed from our homeport in Vero Beach, Fla., headed north to Maine aboard our 78’ Ocean Alexander, Rhythm ‘n Blues. This journey took us to many ports of call, traveling over 5,500 nautical milesfrom Florida to Maine and back. The daunting task of making all of these marina reservations was made easy withthe help from the Marinalife staff. The length of this cruise created a new “rhythm” for us which leads to the boat’sname, Rhythm ‘n Blues. Now hop aboard as we take you through our journey from the Chesapeake Bay to Maine.

was an easy walk to everything. We actually had two crab cake tastings: TheCrab Claw Restaurant and St. MichaelsCrab & Steakhouse.

Annapolis was bustling with energy!We stayed at Annapolis City Dock and we were in the thick of the action. It wasfun exploring the Naval Academy and allof the shops and restaurants that align thestreets. Steps away from the boat was thewinning crab cake, located at Dock StreetBar & Grill!

We finished off the Chesapeake Baywith stops in Chestertown, Rock Hall and Georgetown before cruising throughthe C & D Canal toward Atlantic City,N.J. Then we made our way to the “BigApple” for an extended stay.

Part 2 — Long IslandNew York City, or should I say “the BigApple,” will rate up there as one of themost memorable days of our trip. Bringingthe boat right up to the Statue of Libertywas amazing. We wanted to sing “GodBless America” at the top of our lungs!

After a night at Danfords Hotel &Marina in Port Jefferson (locally known as Port Jeff ), we traveled to Mitchell ParkMarina in Greenport and on our way wepassed Plum Island. For all of you NelsonDeMille fans (novelist) you will know exactly where we are. Mitchell Park Marina is located in town and we enjoyeda nice walk to Claudio’s for dinner (a Greenport landmark — the oldest family-owned restaurant in the UnitedStates since 1870). The next day we bikedto Kontokosta Winery and did a wine tasting at this beautiful winery overlookingLong Island Sound. There are at least 50 vineyards in this region, and we havebeen surprised by the quality of the wines.

We left Greenport and had a shorthour and a half ride to Sag Harbor, an upscale little town that is not far from the Hamptons with very nice shops and restaurants. We had lunch at PageRestaurant and enjoyed the very goodgrilled octopus!

Our final stop on Long Island wasMontauk. Montauk Yacht Club is verynice with two pools, restaurants, a beachand a spa. After watching the sunset, wewere greeted with a Supermoon.

Midshipmen at the Naval Academy during their daily noon formation. This formation is done weather permitting Monday through Friday of the academic year before lunch. The Naval Academy started doing

noon meal formations in 1905; the idea came from the tradition of mustering troops in the Civil War. Visit Annapolis

Part 3 — Rhode Island to MaineNewport, R.I. is a city steeped in historyand architecture. We docked at NewportHarbor Hotel & Marina and toured twoof the “Summer Cottages” as they arecalled. The Cliff Walk was a wonderfulwinding walk that follows the coastline for3 1/2 miles. Seeing the cliffs and the watercrashing onto the rocks was quite a thrill!

We were happy that we docked at The Black Dog Wharf because Martha’sVineyard has a nice historic streets withshops and a few restaurants.

Nantucket, Mass., has wonderful walk-ing and bike paths throughout the entireisland. We loved seeing the residential areawith the immaculately restored homes onthe cobblestone streets. The yards are lushand manicured with an abundant amountof hydrangeas in every color imaginable! We docked at Nantucket Boat Basin.

In Boston, we stayed at ConstitutionMarina located on Boston Harbor

conveniently situated on the FreedomTrail. Boston Commons is unique withthe “swan boats” and Newbury Street, thehistoric high-end shopping district withlots of outdoor cafes. We took the dinghydown the Charles River. It was the firsttime we have ever done locks in a dinghy!From the water we saw Harvard, BostonUniversity and MIT.

We left Boston and headed to Newburyport, Mass., a wonderful littletown. Arriving during their big YankeeHomecoming Festival, the streets werelined with white tents and the park hadconcerts during the day and fireworks atnight. We tied up at Newburyport HarborMarina and had delightful dinner at CeiaKitchen Bar — a small European restaurant.

The next day we headed to Boothbay,Maine. On our way we saw a water spoutand, wouldn’t you know, it was a whale! To be so close to such a huge creature was awe inspiring! The scenery and temperatures changed quite a bit as wemade our way into the harbor. It was absolutely beautiful!

You know you have entered Maine whenyou can walk across the water on lobstertrap buoys. It requires major maneuveringskills to make your way through the waterways and harbors. We took thedinghy out the next day to the town ofBath. Again, another amazing day of

beautiful scenery spotting seals on ourjourney. The dockmaster asked us wherewe had gone and when we told him Bath,he said, “You took that little dinghy throughHells Gate, that’s adventurous!” (I guessthat’s what they call that section of 6-knotrapids that we had to go through!)

We were in Rockland, Maine for a few days. We were able to dinghy over to Rockport (not to be confused with Rockland) and also to Owl’s Head Point.Very beautiful coastal countryside. Lots of art galleries for visitors to explore inRockland.

We finally arrived to Bar Harbor, Maine and met our daughter Stephanieand her husband John. They hikedPrecipice which is the most difficult hike in all of Acadia National Park. My wife and I had already hiked Precipice 20 years ago so we had our bragging rights! The guidebook says“climbers should expect an experiencephysically strenuous and mentally stimulating.” We decided that might be too tiring. The next day we all hiked Acadia Mountain together, which theguidebook called moderately strenuous.Let’s just say their definition of “moderate”is a little different from Kristi’s! ml

Acadia is the oldest American National Park east of the Mississippi River and the first where landwas donated to the federal government. The park contains over 120 miles of hiking trails.

On our way we saw a water spout, andwouldn’t you know,it was a whale!

Suddenly, you’re in a whole different state of “rest stop!”

“Sunday drive!”

“plenty of parking!”

Powdery, sugar-white beaches and sparkling turquoise water make

Gulf Shores & Orange Beach a true boater’s paradise. Miles of open

waterways and back bays with more than a dozen marinas beckon for

endless hours of exploration and fun. Come be transformed.

How long have you been the general

manager at Mosquito Creek?  

I’ve been the general manager of theSquamish Nation Marine Group since2006, managing and redeveloping Mosquito Creek Marina, Lynnwood Marina and New Brighton Port.

How long have been you in Vancouver?

What brought you to the area?

I’ve been in Vancouver since 1989. Rockand Roll! I was a professional musicianbefore my marina career.

How did you get into the boating


I have always been interested in boats. I was living on a 40-foot boat at the timeand a friend offered me a job as a deckhand at a local pilot company and onething lead to another. After my stint withthe marine company I moved on to a dockmaster position in downtown Vancouver. I stayed at that position for four years, and then this exciting new opportunitypresented itself.

Have you seen a lot of changes in the

Vancouver boating industry since you

have been there?

Yes I have. There are a lot of recreational

boaters in the Vancouver area. And more marinas have sprouted up and more interest in better service. There are a lot of new faces in the boating industry. Vancouverites are blessed with one of the most spectacular places to boat in the world. There are many spots to go and anchor and explore. There is also a lot of reason to stay in North Vancouver.

What is some of your hobbies

besides boating?

Photography. I have a little site calleddonnygeographic.com where I share myimages. There are so many spectacular visuals we see everyday. I love my cameraand crafting the shot.

Sausage or Bacon?

Bacon without a doubt!

If a boater pulls into the marina

and wants suggestion on things

to do — what do you say?

I say, “What would you like to do?” Somepeople are here to look at the beauty ofthis amazing area while some are here for the food. There are so many greatrestaurants in the area. Some want to goon a real estate hunt. Some want to gogolfing, hiking, sightseeing, maybe to

Whistler. I generally feel them out andgive them guidance based on their requests. We are very lucky here in North Vancouver.  We’ve got the best ofcity living with a million different thingsto see and do as well as easy access to nature and recreation in our back yard.

Your drink of choice? 

I’m a juicer. I juice three times a day sothat’s a tough one. I can say there is a lot of green juice in my life. When theweekend rolls around the green takes a bit of a back seat to a good single malt or a cold Molson.

What team do you cheer on

the most?

I would say that being a Vancouverite, I pretty much have to say our belovedCanucks are the team I cheer for. It’s anup-and-down battle to stay on board withthem but one has to have faith.

Favorite band/performer?

Being a musician for a good part of my lifemakes it hard to choose a favorite band orperformer. There are so many talentedpeople on this planet. I’m a big fan of TheBeatles, Steely Dan, Joni Mitchell, LittleFeat, Tom Waits and many, many others.

Where is the coolest place you

ever traveled to?

I think the coolest place we have traveledto is Russia. A Viking River cruise downthe Volga River from St. Petersburg toMoscow was really a very cool trip. Bali,Croatia and Beijing also rank up there. ml

JOuRNey’S eNd MARINA is set in the thriving MidcoastMaine port of Rockland in West Penobscot Bay. The property isowned by the O’Hara Corporation, which has been active in themarine industry for more than 100 years and also operatesO’Hara Bait out of Rockland and an Alaskan fishing fleet in the Bering Sea. 

The idea for the marina first took hold in the 1990s, when the fishing industry gravitated toward the West Coast. TheO’Hara family decided to purchase some vacant waterfront fishprocessing plants around Rockland’s harbor. Soon Journey’s endbegan to take shape, and a full-service yachting center — whichcaters to both recreational vessels and commercial lobster boats— was born. 

Rockland is a popular destination for cruisers heading northduring the summer, and Journey’s end quickly became one of thepremiere places to stop. The deep-water marina can accommodatevessels up to 275 feet and offers everything a boater may need, including WiFi, well-lit ramps and docks, water and electric, aship store, clean shower and bathroom facilities, laundry and bothdiesel and gasoline fuel. The marina has the largest indoor boat

storage facility in Maine, and the service crew happily works oneverything from the smallest boats to the largest mega-yachts.This August, a heated 18,000-square-foot indoor service andstorage facility will be completed, along with an 85-foot indoorspray booth. The extensive services available include fiberglass repairs, full re-paint jobs, hull and keel repairs, electrical and refrigeration maintenance, metal fabrication, and general enginerepairs. Journey’s end also runs a transport service that safely gets your vessel anywhere you need it within the united Statesand Canada. 

The heart of quaint Rockland is just a stone’s throw from themarina. Browse through the many shops and art galleries andgrab a bite to eat at one of the excellent restaurants, including the award-winning Primo, which offers farm-to-table cuisine bycelebrated chef Melissa Kelly. Tour the Rock Harbor BrewingCompany, sample one of the many beers on tap, and kick back tothe soulful beats of the live bands. The many festivals throughoutthe summer include the North Atlantic Blues Festival ( July 11-12),the Maine Lobster Festival ( July 29-August 2) and the 13th Annual Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Show (August 14-16).What’s more, Rockland is home to many historic schooners, including the magnificent Victory Chimes. 

Perhaps Journey’s end general manager Shane Strause sumsup the facility’s appeal best: “If you’re boating in New england,there’s no need to compromise. Journey’s end is a spectacularsummer destination for boaters, no matter what you’re looking for— a seasonal slip, a paint job, indoor winter storage, you name it.Journey’s end Marina is the one place that offers you everythingyou and your boat may need. Come and see what sets us apartfrom everyone else.” ml

some linguists say Michilimackinacmeans “great turtle” in the ottawa nation language and refers to the shape of Mackinac island. But the ottawa tribe,who settled on Mackinac island beforetheir first contact with Europeans, say they found a small tribe already living on that island and their tribal name wasMi-shi-ne-macki naw-go.

That’s why “Mackinac” is spoken as“Mackinaw,” unless you’re a “fudgie” andunfamiliar with the local pronunciation.today it’s the fudgies dollars spent at thefudge shops and riding on horse drawnwagons around Mackinac island that drivethe summer tourist economy from Father’sDay to Labor Day.

This popular great Lakes destination islocated at the crossroads of history for theupper Midwest. Michilimackinac has witnessed French Jesuit missionaries andvoyageurs, the development of the beaverfur trade and the competition betweenEngland and France to be the dominantcolonial power in north America. Butwhen did this eight-square-mile islandfirst become a summer resort destination?That occured during the America VictorianEra after the civil War.

Before the spider web of railroad lines were built in the great Lakes region,the primary mode of transportation for

commerce, immigration and businesstravel were the inland seas themselves and the Erie canal. steamboat passengerferries connected the major great Lakecities of Buffalo, toronto, cleveland, Detroit, Milwaukee and chicago. As the gilded Era advanced, so did the luxurious appointments aboard these palatial intercity steamers. As an antidoteto living in the big industrial cities during

summer in the late 1800s, northernMichigan became a popular getaway forthe rich and middle class alike. A ticketaboard a coal-fired steamer from chicagoto harbor springs, Michigan was just $5, without meals and a cabin for the 24 hour trip.

The grand hotel built in 1887 onMackinac island, exemplifies tourism developed for those who benefited from



cruising through history >

The Straits of Mackinac between Lake Huron andLake Michigan and the surrounding region have historically been known as Michilimackinac.

The Grand Hotel's front porch is the longest inthe world and is known as a "flirtation walk" for

visiting Mackinac Island romantics.

the Industrial Revolution and were fortunate enough to have leisure time for a vacation. Perched on a bluff, withsweeping views from its 660-foot-longfront porch, the “Grand” was designed as a desitination resort by the owners of the Detroit and Cleveland SteamshipCompany and the Michigan Central Railroad. It was an immediate success, and a hundred years later it was designateda National Historic Landmark. In fact, all of Mackinac Island is now a NationalHistoric Landmark District, which makesit a must visit port of call for Great Lakes

cruisers with an interest in history.The best choice when arriving by boat

is to tie up at the dock at Mackinac IslandState Harbor. Why is it the best choice?Because it is the only marina on the island!The marina is part of the Michigan StatePark system and reservations should bemade well in advance either online or by phone. Although there is room to anchor in the harbor, the holding is poorand would be unsafe in a blow. The nextbest alternative for dockage is anotherMichigan State Park marina, Straits State Harbor in Mackinaw City, which

is six nautical miles southwest of the island. For sightseeing back on MackinacIsland there are ferries, leaving every halfhour throughout the day from Straits State Harbor.

Once ashore on Mackinac Island, buysome fresh hand made fudge, rent a bicycle and start your journey back in time by exploring these historical sites:

❖ Fort Mackinac – Built by the British Army just before the end of theRevolutionary War, it was belatedly turnedover to the United States many years afterthe Treaty of Paris. At the outbreak of

The Grand Hotel was opened in 1887 asa summer retreat for vacationers who

arrived by lake steamer from Chicago,Erie, Montreal and Detroit.

the War of 1812, the British suprised the American garrison and regained possession of this high ground until it was ceded back to the U.S. under theTreaty of Ghent.

❖ Biddle House – Built about 1780, it was remodeled into a home and furtrading shop by Edward Biddle to allowhim to exchange trade goods for beaver,mink and otter pelts.

❖ Agency House of the American

Fur Company – Built in 1820, it served as the local office of John Jacob Astor’s expanding fur company. It is now a museum dedicated to the fur trade.

❖ McGulpin House – Built before1780, in the working class French Canadian style. In 1819 William andMadeline McGulpin purchased it andbegan baking bread and hardtack to

supply fur traders. The house has been restored to its 1820 appearance.

❖ Mission Church – Built in 1829, this Congregational church is the oldestsurviving church in the state of Michigan.

❖ Sainte Anne Church – The currenttimber-framed Roman Catholic churchwas built in 1874, but the original logchurch on the same site was built 100 yearsbefore. There are parish records dating

back to 1695 from the founding FrenchJesuit missionaries.

And there is no better way to end the dayon Mackinac Island that watching the sunset from the front porch of the GrandHotel while relaxing on a rocking chair andimagining what it was like to be a Frenchfur trapper paddling through the Straits ofMackinac in a birch bark canoe. ml

CApTurINg ThE ESSENCE of Victoria, British Columbia in words is almost impossible. You have to experience Victoria to fully appreciate it. Located on a protected harbor on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, it is one of the oldest cities in the pacificNorthwest, settled by the British in 1843, and is known as one of the most British cities outside England. It also ranks as one of the top cities in the world for quality oflife. As the capital of British Columbia it is well serviced by airplanes and ferries frommultiple points in the u.S. and Canada. One of the most interesting ways to arrive is by float plane — Kenmore Air and harbour Air will both land you right downtown.

Victoria is very walkable, and the most popular attractions are within two miles ofthe inner harbor. The city has a rich collection of historic buildings, including the parliament Building, completed in 1897, and the Empress hotel, which opened in 1908. An interesting assortment of marine architecture can be found at Fisherman’sWharf, where a colorful group of houseboats nestle in a cove.

Victoria has a healthy economy made up primarily of tech businesses, governmentagencies, and the tourism sector. The internationally diverse population brings with itcosmopolitan offerings — restaurants and shops abound, many of which are located in a creatively restored merchant district. The well-established Chinatown neighborhood is almost as old as San Francisco’s.

Set on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, the city is surrounded by natural beauty,clean air and clear water. It’s abundant sunshine and mild temperatures have earned it the nickname the garden City. It enjoys relatively mild, dry weather in what is

otherwise a cool, damp area. Don’t miss theButchart gardens, about a 30-minute drive north of Victoria. It is one of theworld’s premier botanical displays.

With a circumnavigation distance of approximately 550 nautical miles, includingdozens of marinas and hundreds of scenic anchorages, one could spend yearsexploring Vancouver Island and not coverthe same ground twice. Victoria and Vancouver Island are a boater’s paradise. ml

Part of the cultural patrimony of anycountry is its historic buildings. For manyyears Cuba neglected these importantstructures and they fell into disrepair. Realizing the significance of their history,not only for future generations but to the burgeoning tourism industry, Cubaappointed conservators for the cities ofCienfuegos and Havana. Their task was to restore the historic centers of those

cities, which were designated UNESCOWorld Heritage Sites. The work in thesouthern city of Cienfuegos on theCaribbean Sea is just about complete,while the restoration of La Habaña Vieja (Old Havana) is ongoing.

Havana is experiencing a renewal ofspirit, entrepeneurship and possibilities.While visitors from Canada, Europe andLatin America have had the opportunity

to see this first hand in recent years, it isnow time for Americans to reestablish thefriendship forged between Cuba and theUnited States, which was an outcome ofthe Spanish-American War in 1898. ml

LOG DAY 1 — We left from PleasureCove Marina in Pasadena, Md., in mid-May. They stored and maintained ourboat for the winter and they prepped herfor departure. Their team was great to workwith and handled our punch list perfectly.

Our son Brian and his wife Amandahopped aboard for our first leg fromPasadena to the C&D Canal. This manmade canal is busy with commercialbarges, but is also pleasure boater friendly.In Chesapeake City, we docked at Schaefer’s Canal House with side-tiealong the banks of the canal. The marina

had full accommodations along with livemusic and delicious traditional Marylandfare, consisting of delicious crab pasta and local oysters on the half shell.

LOG DAY 2 — Today we cruisedfrom Chesapeake City, continuingthrough the C&D Canal. The Canaldropped us into the Delaware Bay, wherewe continued to South Jersey Marina in Cape May, N.J. — about a six-hour excursion. This marina offered full boatservices, a shuttle to town and excellentsuggestions for dining and taking in the

charm of this historic community. We walked the town center, stopping fordrinks at a local watering hole called theUgly Mug, then had an amazing dinner atthe Marion Inn, known for its prime rib.

LOG DAY 3 — Departing at 8:45 a.m., we headed offshore and ran directly north for three hours, 39 nauticalmiles to Atlantic City. We arrived just intime to place our bets for AmericanPharoah running in the 140th PreaknessStakes. We tied up right in front of thecasino at the Golden Nugget Marina

a summer to rememberBY TONYA AND R ICK ANTLE

Our summer boating season has begun! My husband Rick and I cruise on Artemis, our Offshore 54 Pilothouse, which we purchased in Ft. Lauderdale in 2014 with plans of completing the Great Loop over a three-year period. Last year was our first year cruising and it consisted of four legs beginning in Ft. Lauderdale in March and ending in the Chesapeake Bay by September.

For the 2015 summer season, we will be working our way north from the Chesapeake Bay, taking a detour from the Great Loop, toward Maine then back to the Hudson River, finishing the season in WinterHarbor, N.Y. I am looking forward to New York City, the Boston Harbor for 4th of July, Acadia NationalPark and then The U.S. Open in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.

Tonya and Rick’s boat, Artemis,is taking them on an adventurefrom Maryland to Maine.

where marina guests can access all of thehotel amenities. We took a quick cab rideto the Atlantic City Boardwalk to take inall of the sights and sounds that it has to offer. In the evening, one of our othersons Anthony joined us for a lovely dockside family dinner at Chart HouseSeafood Restaurant. Atlantic City lived upto its colorful reputation as all three kidscame back to the boat with stories of colddice and empty wallets.

LOG DAY 4 — Leaving AtlanticCity, we cruised north on the Atlantic,three miles off the Jersey Shore towardManasquan, N.J. We docked at Hoffman’sMarina, a full service marina, offeringhigh-speed fuel pumps and clean restroomfacilities. Rick and I took a three-milewalk around the small and sleepy commuter town that was filled with newVictorian-style homes that were rebuiltafter Hurricane Sandy. Dinner thatevening was delicious at the onsite marinarestaurant, Waypoint 622. Rick enjoyedthe house specialty, pork chops with clamsand sausage in a tomato broth.

LOG DAY 5 — We were met by four- to -six foot swells and heavy fog during our departure from Hoffman’s Marina. It took about four hours to go 44 nautical miles to reach the New YorkHarbor. But once we went under the Verrazano Bridge and were in sight of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattanskyline, pride and patriotism filled us andall thoughts of the rough crossing wereforgotten. Also, standing majestically inthe overcast sky was the new World TradeTower. We continued up the HudsonRiver to see Manhattan Island by waterbefore turning back and arriving at Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City,N.J. It was the perfect location to catchthe ferry to Manhattan. After a pleasantstroll viewing all the sites, Rick and Idined in the Financial District at Del-monico Restaurant, known for its powerdinners for Wall Street’s elite.

LOG DAY 6 — Waking up and seeing New York City through the windshield of Artemis was quite a sight totake in. We headed up the East Riverpassing all the major tourist sites of Manhattan on our port side and Brooklynon our starboard side. With only an occasional tugboat and barge, the channelwas clear for cruising. Artemis cruised

steadily to Oyster Bay on the Long IslandSound. The scenery changed dramaticallyfrom cityscape to forested regal mansionestates. We were now entering “GreatGatsby” country.

Oyster Bay Marine Center was exactlywhat East Coast boating should be. Beautiful classic sailing vessels dotted thebay. We docked Artemis next to the famousketch Knickerbocker, a 117-foot luxuryyacht named after the owners of the NBAKnicks. To our starboard we had a 57-foot

commuter yacht Vendetta, which has beenfeatured in several yachting magazines, asthe reincarnation of the Vanderbilt, Whitney and Pulitzer families mode ofcommuting to lower Manhattan in the1920s and ’30s. Oh, but I failed to give you a hint, its owner is the “Piano Man.”

We took a dingy ride around OysterBay to take in the beautiful landscape and

manicured estates before walking a quickquarter mile into a darling seaport village.We ate dinner at a local favorite, Jack Halyards Tavern, that offered a delicioussushi bar with live music.

Tomorrow we depart for Sag Harborand then on to Block Island for the weekend. Look for us on the waterways aswe cruise toward Maine this summer! ml

once we went under the Verrazano Bridge and were in sight of the Statue of Liberty and the Manhattan skyline,

pride and patriotism filled us and all thoughts of the rough crossing were forgotten.

The Antles pass by Ellis Island. The island admitted nearly 12 million immigrants into America before shutting its doors in 1954.

NARROW, 32-mILE-LONG LAkE GEORGE is nicknamed the Queen of theAmerican Lakes. It is surrounded by the Adirondack mountains, which amounts tosome of the most stunning scenery on the East Coast. Its pristine waters and untouchedwilderness are also steeped in American history. Fort William Henry, built by the British,sits on its southern end, and Fort Ticonderoga, constructed by the French, is to the north.The name Deer Leap, a popular destination near the central part of the lake, will be familiar to those who know James Fenimore Cooper’s novel “The Last of the mochicans.”

The Village of Lake George, on the southern shore, is where the lake is at its widestand is full of hotels, shops and restaurants. It is a great place for a stroll with an ice cream cone on summer evenings. The Lake George Steamboat Company is based hereand offers tours of the spectacular lake.

Traveling north along the western side of the lake, civilization thins out and naturebegins to take over. The best way to explore the many islands and beautiful miles ofshoreline is on a boat of your own.

Boating on Lake George is always exciting, and there are plenty of marinas andrentals available. Snug Harbor marina has properties in two locations — Silver Bay andTiconderoga. They offer boat repairs, boat rentals and sales and winter storage. Chic’smarina has watersport rentals, and FR Smith & Sons marina offers boat rentals, too.

Don’t miss events including king George Fishing Derby ( July 10-12), Lake George music Festival (August 17-27), Lake George Restaurant Week (September 13-19) and, of course, the Adirondack Balloon Festival (September 18-20). If you are in the area during the month of July, there are fireworks every Thursday night!

One visit to Lake George can lead to a lifetime of discovery. It will soon become obviousthat its nickname is an understatement. People have been returning to the area to enjoy itssplendor for generations. A weekend’s stay can easily turn into a lifetime of pleasure! ml

restaurants, among them the boater-friendly Finz Seafood & Grill. OwnerGeorge Carey launched Finz in 2001 at its current location on Pickering Wharf, inthe heart of the Salem waterfront, and has kept the place fresh and popular overthe years.

The dining focus is squarely on seafood,although Finz also serves some deliciousmeat, chicken and vegetarian dishes. Theatmosphere is upscale yet not too fancy,with tasteful artwork and big windows affording views of the water. Outside tablesare also available, or you can dine at the bar.


Nothing “whets” an appetite quite like time on the water, and if you happen to be cruising, sailing or fishing along the coast

of Massachusetts, we’ve got your fix in the form of these nine terrific dock-and-dine restaurants. Bon appetite!

Summer Shanty in West Dennis

Finz serves an amazing variety ofdishes, including fried oysters, fish tacos,burgers, pan-seared scallops, gourmethamburgers and crispy haddock burritos— all of it delicious. The bartenders alsomake some great cocktails and maintainan extensive wine list, keeping the placehopping after hours.

When arriving by boat, make your way into the channel behind Derby Wharf to Pickering Wharf Marina. Head down the channel leading to theSouth River and look for an open spacealong the floating docks to starboard infront of the restaurant. Hail PickeringWharf Marina (VHF 9) to see about tie-up space and hourly rates. Another option is to grab a mooring in the harborand catch a ride to the restaurant via theSalem Water Taxi (978-745-6070). Thiswill give you more time to explore Salem

after or before you eat. Another option is docking at Brewer Hawthorne CoveMarina, less than a 1⁄2 mile walk to Finz,offering 110 slips for vessels up to 65 feet.

Barking Crab, Boston

Although Boston offers a taste of urban boating at its best, dock-and-dinerestaurants are hard to come by. One exception is the Barking Crab, tuckedaway on the Fort Point Channel in South Boston and adjacent to the FederalCourthouse (where Whitey Bolger was recently tried). This popular “seafoodshack,” now in its 21st year of operation,offers open-air dining on picnic tables beneath a tent, as well as limited indoorseating. It’s a fun, loud, kid-friendly place— and the food is good, too.

The menu features pan-seared scallops,grilled yellowfin tuna, mahi and swordfish,

lobster, baked haddock, snow crab legs,fried clams and other seafood favorites.Non-fish eaters can choose from a rangeof sandwiches, soups and salads. The bar features a host of local micro-brewsand wines.

There is one caveat to dining at “The Crab”: The dock is only accessible to vessels that can clear the Northern Avenue bridge (vertical clearance 7 feetMHW) so be careful of the tide or youmight end up staying for longer than you planned. Also, dock space is limited,so calling ahead is a good idea, especially on weekends. For transient dockage stop at Boston Yacht Haven located less than a mile north on Boston’s historic Commercial Wharf or at Constitution Marina located right on the Freedom Trail.

Clockwise: Newburyport Harbor, a fried oyster basket at Finz and a night view of the Barking Crab.

Waterclub, Quincy

Just south of Boston, but still part of BostonHarbor, is the historic city of Quincy, hometo Marina Bay on Boston Harbor — the largest marina in the Northeast. The complex features a half-dozen eateries,among them Waterclub, overlooking the docks at Marina Bay and affording excellent views of the Boston skyline and the sunset. The restaurant serves allmanner of appetizers, sandwiches, fishtacos, burgers and the like as well as a wide selection of mixed drinks.

As its name implies, the Waterclub is a loud and lively place, especially on

summer evenings. It features an indoorand outdoor nightclub with dancing andlive entertainment. Large-screen TVs onthe patio bar make this a great place tocatch the game or watch the boats coming and going from the marina.

Marina Bay on Boston Harbor offers10 cents off per gallon of fuel to CruisingClub Members.

Trader Ed’s, Hyannis

Hyannis needs no introduction amongcruisers, and neither does this popular waterfront restaurant and bar at HyannisMarina (to port as you enter the innerharbor). The lively Trader Ed’s rocks insummer, when it features live music andindoor and outdoor seating on the waterand by the pool (a special pass is requiredto use the pool).

The restaurant’s appetizers include raw-bar items, crab cakes, coconut shrimp, chili wings, salads and stuffed quahogs, while entrees include swordfish,blackened mahi and steak tips. On the

lighter side, there are sandwiches, burgers, lobster rolls and fried fish andgrilled cheese.

Short-term dockage can usually bearranged through Hyannis Marina. Another option is to anchor in Lewis Bayand dinghy to the marina.

Summer Shanty, West Dennis

Boaters cruising through Nantucket Soundare well advised to take time out to explorethe scenic Bass River, which separates thetowns of West Dennis and Yarmouth.Along the way, be sure to grab a bite orslake your thirst at the Summer Shanty, atBass River Marina. True to its name, theShanty is the quintessential, laidbackdock-and-dine spot — the type of placethat has become rare in New England.

The restaurant offers free dockage,space permitting, and both indoor andoutdoor seating on the patio and the covered porch overlooking the marinadocks on the beautiful Bass River, just a

An excellent view of the Bostonskyline awaits Waterclub diners.

few miles from Nantucket Sound. You can also relax with a cocktail or appetizerin the Adirondack chairs arranged on thefront lawn — a popular sunset hangout.

The atmosphere is mellow and casual,with soft reggae music playing in thebackground. Live entertainment is thenorm on weekend nights. The food is excellent, too, and includes lobster rolls,fish-and-chips, burgers, tuna salad sandwiches, stuffed quahogs and more.The salads are large and fresh, and theFrench fries are cooked to perfection. Entree prices range from $12 to $20;sandwiches are in the $10 range.

Note that the restaurant is located justnorth of the Rte. 28 fixed bridge, whichhas a clearance of 15 feet MHW.

Larsen’s Fish Market, Menemsha

Fans of idyllic Menemsha Harbor onMartha’s Vineyard are no doubt familiarwith Larsen’s Fish Market. Yes, this long-established enterprise sells fresh-off-the-boat fish and shellfish, but Larsen’salso serves lobster rolls, boiled lobster,steamed clams and mussels, stuffed quahogs, chowder and raw-bar items, allof which can be enjoyed outside on picnictables overlooking the harbor and its small fleet of working vessels. It’s a simple, laidback, authentic place — just like Menemsha itself.

Boaters can usually find space alongthe bulkhead, in one of the town-managedtransient slips, or on a mooring, but check in with the harbormaster first (508-645-2846). Another option is to anchor in Vineyard Sound, dinghy to the beach and walk the short distance toLarsen’s. No matter how you get there, it’sworth the effort. In fact, you might fall inlove with Menemsha and never leave.

The Chart Room, Cataumet

First opened in 1966 and occupying a former Jersey Central railroad barge, theChart Room is a Buzzards Bay boating institution on Red Brook Harbor inCataumet. Located at Kingman YachtCenter, the Chart Room is a busy placewith long waits the norm, especially onweekends. However, most patrons don’tseem to mind, as it affords them ampletime to enjoy a cocktail outside and soakin the sunset behind Bassetts Island. The restaurant serves a wide range of appetizers, seafood, steaks, sandwiches and entrees, but the broiled swordfish is a house specialty.

Tie up along the facing docks at Kingman, if space is available. If there’s noroom, hail the KYC staff on VHF 71 andthey can usually find a spot for you on thefuel dock, in an open slip or on a mooring.From a mooring you can either dinghy tothe KYC dinghy dock or hop on the launch.

The Back Eddy, Westport

For boaters on the southeast coast of Massachusetts, a trip to the Back Eddy onthe Westport River is a real treat. Openedin 1999 by celebrated Boston chef ChrisSchlesinger, this open, airy restaurant servesmid-upscale cuisine featuring entrees suchas wood-grilled Japanese-style ahi tuna,wood-grilled swordfish, fried clams, oven-roasted cod loin, lobster rigatoni and friedNew Bedford sea scallops. Interesting appsinclude the roasted corn and clam chowder,the Back Eddy signature stuffed clams,native steamers, smoked Maine mussels“from hell,” and hand-picked lobster sliders. For sides, you can’t go wrong withthe honkey fries and Eddy slaw.

Be forewarned that the Back Eddy is abusy place in summer, but you can hang outon the restaurant’s pier and enjoy a beer,glass of wine or cocktail from the outdoorbar while you wait for a table. The sunsetsfrom this vantage point are spectacular.

Dockage at the Eddy is limited, butboats up to 25 feet or so can tuck in at theend of the pier. Call the restaurant aheadof time to see about available dock space.For overnight dockage stop at F.L. Tripp& Sons, just west of The Back Eddy onthe Westport River. ml

IN THE PAST couple of years popular culture has given The Hamptons a bad rap. What could be worse than being the setting for the TV shows The Real Housewives of New York City and the Kardashian’s Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons? This summer take yourboat and find out what the real Hamptonsare all about.

The Hamptons lie along the SouthFork of the eastern end of Long Island,New York between Montauk Point andthe Moriches, and are comprised of twodozen villages and hamlets. The most well-known destinations of this seaside resortare Montauk, East Hampton, Sag Harbor,Southampton, Shinnecock Hills, Quogueand Westhampton. Of course, there is a

Northampton as well, and it all can be abit confusing to the first time visitor sinceWesthampton and Northampton arelegally part of the Town of Southampton.A good cruising guide and spare batteriesfor your handheld GPS are a must.

Long before Andy Warhol, Paul McCartney, Jerry Seinfeld, Christie Brinkley, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kurt Vonnegut and Truman Capote boughthomes in The Hamptons, it was the Shinnecock and Montaukett Indian tribesthat lived there. When the Long IslandRail Road made its way 90 miles east ofNew York City to Bridgehampton in1870, well-to-do Manhattanites gave upthe summer heat of the city for the coolbreezes on the Atlantic Ocean beaches.

THE HAMPTONS, the Original Summer ColonyBY CAPT. JEFF WERNER


What to Do Summer EventsOther than visiting the MontaukPoint lighthouse, it’s all about relaxingon the beautiful Atlantic beaches.Don’t forget to pack your beach umbrella, flip flops and a good summer read and head to Cooper’sBeach in Southampton, PonquogueBeach in Hampton Bays (Shinnecock)or Main Beach in East Hampton.

While your summer plans are starting to take shape make sure toadd a few of these events to yourbucket list.

• • The Surf Lodge Concert Seriesruns every weekend throughout thesummer. Sip on your favorite cocktailwhile listening to the soothing beats of top indie music artists that flock toMontauk.

• • Hamptons Film Festival compiles a collection of documentaries, shorts,narrative for any inner filmmaker. Stop by Guild Hall during the weekends in the summer to catch aflick and, of course, to meet Alec Baldwin (hosting the summer series).Check out hamptonsfilmfest.org for more details.

Alec Baldwin hosts screenings of independentfilms all summer leading up to the InternationalFilm Festival in October. The festival brings outsome of the biggest directors and actors including(from left) David Nugent, Oren Moverman andRichard Gere.

The Montauk Yacht Club islocated on the north end

of Lake Montauk.

Suntex Marinas specializes in developing properties at premierdestinations, which on the surface may appear to be no differentthan any other marina. However, at the heart of Suntex, the company’s mission is to revolutionize the experience for all boating enthusiasts. its current portfolio includes 23 full-servicemarinas and is steadily growing. The tools and principles thatrank Suntex Marinas among the best in the industry include: superior customer service, experienced managers and staff, conscious contributions to the community, and a general enthusiasm for creating memorable experiences on the water.

Breaking Down Barriers

Most people walking the docks or stopping into the marinestores are those hoping to enjoy the tranquility of time on theirboat. Suntex Marinas wants everyone to be able to enjoy theboating lifestyle, so they developed the Suntex Boat Club. For those who are not quite ready for boat ownership, this members-only club offers a hassle-free introduction to the boatinglifestyle. Suntex Boat Club offers their members access to a fleetof top-of-the line pontoons, ski boats, and wakeboard boats, aswell as complimentary use of their tubes, skis, and wakeboards.

Revitalization of Marina Store Facilities

For boaters requiring supplies, going to a marina for parts that already carry a premium cost is usually seen as a last resort option.However, through strong partnerships with vendors, every SuntexMarina’s store carries the same products available at the same pricing as non-marina stores and catalogs. if a product is not carried, the knowledgeable team will order it to be delivered usuallywithin 24 hours depending on the location and shipping is free.

Cutting-Edge Technology

Through the implementation of the latest software, the Suntexstaff is able to focus completely on customer satisfaction. emphasizing an understanding of the needs of its clientele, Suntex is continually evolving. its new software captures detailsabout each purchase so that professional staff can streamlinetheir service for the best possible experience.

By developing the community in which it operates, Suntex has found rapid, yet sustainable growth.

“We embrace and support some amazing community programs,”said Chris Petty, president, Suntex Marinas. “For example, theFolds of Honor Foundation (foldsofhonor.org) is our primarybeneficiary. We began our nationwide campaign with Folds ofHonor in 2012 on 4th of July weekend, which has become theannual kick-off weekend for Patriot Boating days. The initiativeencourages marinas, manufacturers, boat dealers, retailers andanyone participating in boating to make charitable contributionsto the foundation during the month of July.” ml

St. Augustine, Fla. It was a cold December and January as wemade our way south through the Carolinasand Georgia, but arrival in St. Augustinefinally gave us a day warm enough to siton the front of the boat and enjoy the sunnyafternoon at Camachee Cove Yacht Harbor.Sophie and Bailey particularly enjoyed it,given the fact we had trimmed their coatsfor warmer weather before leaving

Southport, N.C.The Carolina coasts are famous for quaint seaside villages, rich in history and proudlypreserved, local merchants welcome cruisingboaters to stop and stay for a while. We didjust that in the picturesque town of Southport,N.C. Located at the mouth of the Cape FearRiver, Southport is a great base to use whilevisiting other nearby communities such asBaldhead Island and Wrightsville Beach.Abbi and John at Southport Marina made us feel right at home. A short walk from themarina brings you to an eclectic collection ofshops and restaurants around the old harborand fishing village. A slightly longer walk takesyou to the wide assortment of merchants inthe beautifully preserved downtown area. One of the town’s greatest treasures is its collection of well-cared-for historic homes. 

Since Sophie and Bailey made their first appearance on the cover of Marinalife’s Summer 2014 issue, several members have wanted to know a little more about them. We talked their owners, Bob & Dori Arrington,

into letting us follow them on their winter adventure. These two PortugueseWater Dogs are no strangers to sea travel, having spent their entire lives travelingon Bob & Dori’s boat, Liberdade, their 54-foot Ocean Alexander Trawler. So hop on board with Sophie and Bailey as they head south to their favoriteports on Liberdade, which by the way means “Freedom” in Portuguese!

Marco Island, Fla. Traveling on the boat each day makes it difficult for Sophie and Bailey to getenough exercise. Being members of theworking dog group, retrieval was one of the Portuguese Water Dog’s primaryjobs on commercial fishing boats. There was a nice beach next to theMarco Island Marina where they could swim out and bring a toy back to us. I guess it also didn’t hurt theyknew a small treat was waiting forthem if they brought the toy back. ml

Boca Grande Key, Fla. Many think of Key West as the end of the Florida Keys, but the Keys continue for another 60 miles with 25 more Island Keys to visit. It’s just that none of these are permanently inhabited. Boca Grande Key, approximately 12 miles west of Key West certainly has plenty of inhabitants on warm sunny weekend days. This is a favorite destination for boaters out of Key West. With warm shallow water and a protectedbeach, it’s a great place to anchor the boat and enjoy a picnic. 

Vero Beach, Fla. Vero Beach was one of our favorite stops. We were welcomed into asmall group of cruisers that use Vero as their base for the winter. Manycoming from as far away as Canada. We are already making plans to stopat Vero Beach City Marina next year to reconnect. Sophie and Baileymade friends with Brandi, a 3-year-old Portuguese Water Dog that tookthem to her favorite beach for a romp in the waves. Vero Beach hasearned its reputation as “Velcro Beach” because of how easy it is to getstuck there. With a great main street shopping district, beautiful boardwalk and beach it’s hard not to want to just stay for a while.

Asundergraduates at one of Maine’s finest universities, we shared an appreciation for the beauty of that state’s coasts and a tolerant understandingof the oft-repeated claim that lobsters from those pristine waters were

the best of the best, with meat that was sweetly succulent, tasted of the ocean and wasunmatched anywhere. The merits of this Great Maine Lobster Hypothesis came upagain last summer at a landmark reunion, leading to the idea that a re-examination of thehypothesis might be a savvy excuse for some late summer cruising and a chance to catchup on what had been learned on and off the water in the decades since our graduation.Since both of us had recently exited full-time careers, a cruise to the Grand RocklandLobster Festival, one of Fodor Travel ’s top 10 summer food events, quickly emerged asthe best idea for the reunion.

We were regular boat mates in our earlier days, and both of us had soloed“wet” long before legal highway driving —Paul is from Woods Hole and Peter isfrom Newport. So with a bit of rust andpartial recall of semi-competence, weagreed to meet on Mount Desert Islandfor the 45ish-nautical mile run acrossdeep, azure, largely calm waters to the lobster festival in Rockland aboard Paul’s38-foot Sabre Bald Eagle.

Mount Desert is quintessential DownEast Maine, a popular summer destinationwith spectacular outdoor activities —think Acadia National Park — as well asresorts, restaurants, golf, and shopping. It hosts a sizeable year-round population,with facilities such as the renowned Jackson Research Labs and College of the Atlantic, not to mention the many skilled craftsmen creating masterworks

from the likes of Hinckley and Morris. Following the short drive from Portland,we provisioned at the lovely village closeto laid-back Northeast Municipal Marinabefore partaking in a proper night’s culinary send-off at Asticou Inn.

The next morning we departed earlyinto lingering fog, heading out toward thepopular Western Way and the fields oflobster pots and floats that demand slowand careful navigation. A bow spotter and perhaps shaft cutters are helpful in this

situation, but if you catch a line be sure tore-tie it: Lobster pots are how they make a living here. Our route through Casco Passage and the string of more than 60 islands that mark Merchant Row was simply beautiful. After that it was easymotoring across Penobscot Bay to a mooring in North Haven’s protected Pulpit Harbor.

It was a full day’s run, but thanks to achance encounter with Eileen, a cruisingfriend who’d charmed a kayak’s load of

Over 30,000 people attendthe Maine Lobster Festivaleach year.

A lobsterman’s day usually startsat 4:30 a.m. and goes until dark.

Before it was known as the lobster capital of the world, Rockland was known for its shipbuilding and lime production.

little “chicken” lobsters from a passing lobsterman and then graciously cookedthem up for both our well-worn crews,life got seriously better. It was a great first taste of the journey’s prey, perfectlycoupled with a California white wine and a beautiful sunset.

The next day we were off from PulpitRock to Rockland. We made fast at a reserved-well-in-advance berth at Journey’s End Marina (207-594-4444,journeysendmarina.com), a welcoming,comprehensive facility that’s a frequentbase for CCA cruisers and New YorkYacht Clubbers alike and an ideal home

from which to enjoy the lobster festival. Unfortunately our arrival coincided

with a warm rain, so rather than catch the crowning of that year’s festival SeaGoddess, we found a patisserie for coffeeand sweets and then visited the wonderfulWyeth and American Impressionist collections at the Farnsworth Art Museum. Afterward we took a quick tripthrough the historic Lighthouse Museum,then headed back to the marina for onboard libations and dinner.

The weather for the rest of our staywas, fortunately, bright and cheery. The festival is truly a communitywide,

all-volunteer enterprise that celebrates not just the mighty lobster but many ofthe state’s other treasures as well. Supportfrom corporate sponsors, vendors, andmodest admissions fees help maintain the town’s maritime facilities and manymunicipal, medical, and senior services.

For us, highlights included our rigoroussampling of various preparations of thecold-water critters; checking out the lobster cooking contest; and enjoying thewide range of musical events, from rock tocountry (Willie even made an appearancenot too long ago). Each morning there’s anall-you-can-eat pancake breakfast whilethe world’s largest lobster cookers are busypreparing lunch and dinner. More than20,000 pounds of “bugs,” brought in freshdaily, are steamed throughout the festival.Traditional accompaniments include cornand slaw, and the buttered rolls stuffedwith pure luscious claw meat were the bestwe could remember.

Between meals, there are carnival rides,5K & 10K races, a parade, and many artsand craft exhibitions. Without a doubt,the star attraction for pure fun was theGreat Lobster Crate Race, for which fearless youths race across a string of floating lobster crates until they hit one of the foot-tripping rope loops, fall intothe drink, and are pulled to safety by thewaiting skiff captains. A hoot!

The Rockland Festival is a lobster-lover’s fantasy, piles of fun wrapped in he welcoming spirit that pervades this close-knit community. It gets our vote as one of the best reasons for late-summerNew England cruising. The 2015 Festival is from July 29 to August 2, and a detailed agenda is posted at mainelobster festival.com. And oh, as forthe hypothesis: Confirmed! The lobsterwas as good as it ever gets. ml

The Lobster Crate Race consists of 50 crates filled with seaweed to help them float that are connectedto two docks. The object is to cross as many lobster crates as possible without falling into the Harbor.Last year, the record was set by a 7-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy who both ran over 6,500 crates.

There were 78 floats in last year’s Big Parade at the Festival — an all-time record.

Sharing the joy of the cruisinglifestyle with family and friends is extremely rewarding. It brings peoplecloser together and provides opportunitiesto learn new skills, enjoy nature, and havefun in a relaxed environment. And youdon’t need a second stateroom on yourboat to invite overnight guests to join you.

When my husband Peter and I weresearching for the perfect cruising vessel,

one of my criteria was to have a secondstateroom so that we could invite our children or friends to join us. As it turnedout, the boat we fell in love with did nothave a spare room. Peter convinced methat we wouldn’t need it, that it would seldom be used as sleeping quarters andwould most likely be the catchall space forspare boat parts and extraneous stuff. Afterone season of boating, I had no doubt he

was right. As of now, after nine years and20,000 miles of cruising, we have hadother people on board with us only fivetimes, and for short periods of no longerthan a week.

We discovered that a great way to handle overnight excursions when we invite family or friends is to find marinasnear hotels or bed and breakfasts. Peterand I sleep on board, and our guests

sleep ashore. Our guests are able to fullyparticipate in boating activities during the day and then in the evenings they canretire to comfortable accommodations.Often, a bonus is that Peter and I canenjoy some of the land amenities offeredto our guests such as pools and restaurants.

Our most memorable time cruisingwith guests was when our boat first arrivedin the Pacific Northwest. Peter and I were

excited to share our love for the cruisinglifestyle with his parents who, up to thistime, had been following our journeysfrom afar through our photos, stories, andtexts. Where better to make them part ofour adventure than in the beloved SanJuan/Canadian Gulf Islands where Peterspent many of his childhood summers.

Peter’s parents live on Orcas Island year-round, so that was our logical starting

point. For this cruise, we planned to spaceour stops so that we were underway nomore than three hours at a time, so wetracked down inns and dining venues thatcould accommodate this. We normallycreate a tentative itinerary, keeping theschedule flexible in case of weather challenges, but in this instance we needed to make reservations for overnightaccommodations well before knowing theweather. Our timing for this trip was afterLabor Day, so most summer vacationershad returned home, and we found thatmany of the hotels and inns would notcharge cancellation fees if we gave them24-hour notice. This meant that if weneeded to rearrange our schedule due to weather we would not be penalized.Fortunately the weather was perfect —spectacularly clear and calm sunny days.

Our first day we picked up Peter’s parents at Deer Harbor Marina andcruised to Poet’s Cove Marina, Resort and Spa in Bedwell Harbor on Pender inthe Canadian Gulf Islands. Not only is it a full-service resort community, but it isalso one of the locations of the Canadiancustoms office, which was ideal, since wehad to pass through customs to travel inthe Canadian Gulf Islands. We enjoyed a stunning sunset from the deck of the resort, followed by a great meal.

The next port of call was Salt SpringMarina on Salt Spring Island. We pickedthis marina because it is next door to the wonderful, British-style HastingsHouse inn, which has an award-winningrestaurant. Peter’s parents stayed the nightin one of their 18 suites, and the four of us dined in the restaurant. What fun for Peter and I to be able to enjoy the stunning views and beautiful gardens ofthis country house hotel set on the hill above the marina.

Our last stop was Roche Harbor on the north side of San Juan Island, wherewe passed through U.S. customs and re-entered U.S. waters. Roche Harbor ishome to one of the two major marinas on San Juan Island. The other is in FridayHarbor, the largest town in the San Juans.The two properties contrast greatly in atmosphere. Friday Harbor is a bustling

The Hotel de Haro first opened itsdoors in 1886. Many of the rooms still

have furniture dating back to that time.

port with car ferries, commercial boats andpleasure yachts. Roche Harbor, on theother hand, is reminiscent of days gone by,with a historic waterfront hotel and classicyachts in the stunning, naturally protectedharbor. It is busy with boat and seaplanetraffic yet relaxing and peaceful.

We reserved rooms for Peter’s folks inthe contemporary boutique hotel on thehill. Accommodations are also available in Hotel de Haro, the oldest continuallyoperating hotel in Washington State.There is no town along the shore of thisharbor, but a small grocery market andboth casual and formal restaurants areavailable to marina guests.

More like a yacht club than a marina,Roche Harbor caters to the upscale cruising crowd and at the same time is casual and family friendly. Part of thecharm of this nautical community is itsnod to the yachting traditions of earliertimes. Every evening just before sunset,from early May to the end of September, a traditional color ceremony is held. Thedock staff retires the flags to music and the boom of a cannon. Following this

ceremony, announcements about weatherand special events are made. My favoritemoment of our four-day cruise was watching Peter arm-in-arm with his parents, standing at attention during this special ceremony. What a wonderful conclusion to a magical vacation.

The next morning, we cruised at aleisurely pace the short distance back toDeer Harbor Marina, all of us relishingthe amazing gift of spending just the right amount of time underway, balancedby the beautiful settings, perfect weather,memorable meals and great company.

Peter’s dad had an opportunity to take the helm, contribute to route planning and discuss vessel maintenancechallenges, while his mom developed anappreciation for her son’s nautical skillsand enjoyed the Pacific Northwest from anew on-the-water perspective. She wrote atouching poem called “The Skipper” inPeter’s honor following this excursionaboard the vessel Bee Weems. ml

The SkipperBy Dorothy W. Trogdon

Each morning he goes downunder the floor of the cabin,

to check fan belts, filters, exhaust.Up again, floor replaced, he moves to the console,

flicks three or four switches.

A rumble arises from belowlike a great beast awakening

beneath him, then slowly slidingforward on heavy sea-paws,

forsaking the land to move out over the trackless waters.

I will carry you, sings the sea.And he goes, man and boat as

one, to the realm of seagull, tern and cormorant who swell free

and feather-light in the lift andglide between wind and water.

For many of us our boats represent asense of adventure hard to duplicateelsewhere in our lives. We purchased

them with dreams of cruising to distantharbors and exploring waters far fromhome. Or many have purchased theirboats to become their homes, freeingthemselves of a permanent address. sowhat happens to the dream of cruisingwhen you receive a letter from a state’stax authority stating you owe them taxesfor using your boat in their waters?

all states require boats above a certain size to have some form of registration, although some may acceptfederal documentation in lieu of stateregistration. in addition to requirementsfor registration, many states require somesort of tax to be paid for boats purchasedor used within the state.

There are three types of taxes whichcan be levied on boats by state and local governments; sales tax, use tax and personal property tax. some statescollect all three and some states collectnone. This is further complicated by local county government’s involvement in personal property taxes. Due to the

potentially high cost of these taxes on expensive boats, many owners have goneto great lengths to minimize or avoidthese taxes all together when purchasingtheir boats. as budget strapped stateslook for additional revenue, many haveincreased their patrolling of marinaslooking for boats registered out of state.They are casting a wide net, looking foranyone suspect of violating their tax policy in hopes of catching the few thatare. Unfortunately, a number of innocentboaters just out cruising or living aboardare being caught in that net in the process.

Because this can be such a complicatedissue, we’ve asked an expert to contributeto this subject with us. Dirk schwenk of Baylaw, LLc is an attorney based inannapolis specializing in maritime law.Dirk has written extensively on boat taxpolicy and offers registration and taxconsulting for anyone purchasing a boat.

in our conversations with Dirk welearned there are two separate questionson this tax issue, one is: How to minimizeor avoid paying tax on a boat when it ispurchased? Which we are not addressingin this article. The other is assuming

the boat was lawfully purchased and registered in a state, regardless ofwhether that state collects “sales tax” or not: How does a boater keep frompaying the “use tax” while traveling toother states that may be attempting tocollect taxes just for using the boat inthat state’s waters?

If our members want us to helpthem plan a summer cruise to NewEngland or winter cruise to Florida,how can they know they are not going to be in violation of a state’s“use tax” policy?

“Use tax defies simple answers, becauseevery state is different and most statestreat their residents differently from the rest of the public. That said, if youpurchased a boat in a non-tax state youwill be largely safe from enforcement if you are truly cruising (in the sense ofmoving between various states every couple of months) and you do not havethe boat in your state of residence (newJersey, for example, asserts the right to tax a resident’s boat on the first day it isin the state). i generally try to put

my clients in a position where their boat is most often in a state that: 1) They like to cruise. 2) They are safe from tax because they

either have paid some tax or because they have a definitive exemption.

3) If their plans change, they send me a quick email to go over their float plan.There are several states that have cappedtheir use tax or have exceptions for boatsthat are not purchased there, so once established in such a location, a boat owner can feel secure that they will not be bothered. Florida can be verytax-friendly for people that are not residents, do not own real property or areotherwise not closely tied to the state.”

So if I understand your answer abovecorrectly, a boater does not necessarilyhave to register their boat where theylive and where it is registered canaffect the ease with which they cantravel from state to state?

“Correct.  Generally a boat must register in the state in which it is used most, so theboat’s location is more important than the owner’s location.  For some boats, it

is difficult to identify the main place ofuse, so I generally try to have those boatsinitially register in a location that has aconnection to the boat and then changethe registration if the boat later comes to rest in a particular state.  I do not

recommend that a boat be in the UnitedStates with no identified state — it drawstoo many questions.  For the very largevessel, a capped state like Florida orMaryland is a good option, since the tax

amounts are not that large relative to thevalue of the vessel and they are desirablestates in which to locate and do not havepersonal property tax.  Depending on circumstances, Florida may not requireany tax.”

with the approach states are using,what should our members do if they receive a letter from a state attemptingto collect a tax on their boat?

“First they should look at it and seewhether it is an assessment of tax (theequivalent of a tax bill) or a letter of inquiry.An assessment is much more serious andtypically has a very short period in whichit can be appealed. If it is an assessmentfor a significant amount of money, theyshould consider hiring counsel that specializes in maritime law. A letter issomewhat less serious and if there is asimple and honest answer (such as “Ikeep my boat in Delaware”), an ownercan simply respond. Counsel should almost certainly be consulted if there is

a significant penalty (indicating that theassessor suspects fraud); if the amount ofmoney at issue is fairly high (say over$10,000) or out of line with the value ofthe boat; or if the taxability of the boat isgoing to be a close call, and a slip of thetongue may be the end of the defense.

For those owners that will spend significant time in the Caribbean, offshoreownership is a topic that should at least be considered in making plans for the useand tax of the vessel. Additionally, anyowners with a high value boat that has not paid any sales tax, they should have atax plan before they are contacted by taxauthorities, not after.”

As you can see this can be a complicatedissue with costly consequences if not managed properly. For additional informationon individual State’s policies, you can visitDirk’s website at baylawllc.com. ml

THOugH New JeRSey may be best known for Bruce Springsteen, “TheSopranos” and a boisterous governor, the state’s 127 miles of coastline boastssome of the finest fishing found on theplanet. while it’s possible to enjoy goodfishing for a variety of species year ‘round, including winter months, the best opportunities to score some of thetastiest fish in the brine are during thepopular summer months of June throughSeptember. From the back bays, rivers andnear-shore waters on out to the offshorecanyons you’ll find a plethora of hungrygamefish to tangle with utilizing a varietyof tactics and tackle.

Manasquan Inlet separates the town of Manasquan and borough of PointPleasant Beach and also provides passagefrom the calm waters of the Manasquan

River to the Atlantic Ocean. The inlet isdeep, clearly marked and well definedthanks to large jetties on each side. Onceinside the inlet you’ll pass Manasquan to the north side of the river followed immediately by the Borough of Briellewhere you’ll find transient, seasonal andyear-round dockage. Hoffman’s Marinaeast (732-528-6200) lies just before theRailroad Bridge that services New JerseyTransit’s North Jersey Coastline, and this50-slip marina can accommodate vesselsup to 120 feet. Fuel, bait, ice, waste pumpout, showers, electric and cable TV areavailable, and there’s an IgFA certifiedscale to weigh your catch.

Immediatelyadjacent to Hoffman’s West is Waypoint622, the newest member of the Hoffman’sMarina family and home to the restaurantof the same name that recently openedand received kudos for its contemporaryAmerican cuisine prepared with prime meatfrom local farms and wild-caught seafood.While rebuilding and updating the docksat Waypoint 622 is still underway, transientboaters are still welcome to tie up for dinner or even overnight.

Whether you’re a kayaker, center console angler or bluewater battlewagonowner, there’s a species for you. June findshungry bluefish receptive to surface plugsin the Manasquan River and nearby bayswhile ocean anglers use jigs and chummingtechniques to score choppers. Striped bassare sought by live bait anglers who snagbunker (menhaden) and then allow them

to swim among the bait schools and river anglers casting rubber baits. Fluke(summer flounder) can be found in riversand bays as well as on snags, wrecks andreefs along the coast. The annual migrationof mako sharks along the 30 FathomCurve and beyond gets underway whileoffshore canyons begin to yield catches of yellowfin and big eye tuna to thosetrolling natural baits and artificial lures.Depending on water temperature and bait arrival, the first blue marlin and whitemarlin will also be caught. Catches of mostof the species previously noted get evenbetter in July though striped bass numberswill drop off as water temperatures rise.The same goes for August, though makosharks become scarce due to warm water.For the latest in fishing information andwhat rigs, baits and lures are producingbest, several fully stocked tackle shops dot the area and are staffed with local pros who can offer tips and tricks for every species.

For a day away from the boat, beautifulsandy beaches, quaint shops and boutiquesand excellent restaurants can be found indowntown Manasquan for those seekinghandmade crafts, clothing, artwork, jewelry,linens and antiques. You can keep the kidshappy away from the beach or pool at avariety of T-shirt, ice cream, fudge and

“dig deeper.” James, my clam-diggin’new friend, instructed. “They’re downthere.”

We were just outside of Boston searching for lunch on the beach. Actually,we were in the shallows with the Atlanticbiting cold on my ankles. Summer hadfled and autumn, although named on thecalendar, seemed to be skipped over forthe harsher temperatures of winter.

Yet, there I was, in shorts and a sweater standing in the surf, shivering and wondering just what was I thinking.Like Lucy Ricardo squishing grapes forwine with her feet, James was teaching me to dig for clams with my toes.

“With no scratch rake or tongs, youcan always find clams just by feeling.” Hepaused and wiggled his left leg. He rolledhis white collared shirtsleeve up to the

elbow, bent down, and stuck his hand intothe water. He pulled a gray half-moonedbivalve with brown rings wrapping aroundits surface from the sand. His rough work-worn hands with dirt under the nails showed stitches from past battleswith shells. “Here’s one.”

“How did you do that?” I wiggled myfeet around, searching for my own lunch.

James laughed and then coughed. Yearsof cold New England winters and a life on the sea had graveled his voice andweathered his hands but hadn’t thawed his love of treading for clams. Every timeI’d visited the area, I’d asked around forsomeone to take me digging and finallyhad been introduced to James, a first mate on a swordfish boat in Gloucester.He’d agreed to show me how to dig, old-school-style, with just our senses.

I’d picked up my shellfish permit thatmorning and was eager to gather enoughmollusks to make chowder that afternoon.

I thought it would be easier, and kickedmyself for being so eager to do this withoutthe modern-day tools of a rake or shovel.

“When the tide rolls out, look for smallround holes in the sand. That’s wherethey’ll be.” James chucked his clam intothe steel bucket at the water’s edge.

I groped through the muck, scrunchingmy toes as directed but came up emptyfooted.

“At this rate, I better stop at The ClamBox on the way home if I’m going to haveclams for lunch.”

“Not to worry. They’ll be clams forchowda.” His thick Boston accent heldconfidence enough for both of us.

The clams we searched for were asweet, saltwater, soft-shelled clam thathave been dug on these shores for hundreds of years. They are also calledlong-necks for the rubbery siphon thatprotrudes from their shell, which are thinner than other varieties such as the

The wet sand squished between my toes.

Collecting Clams in Boston

Since its discovery in 1614 by John Smith,Boston Harbor has been an important

shipping port and home to many historicalevents including the Boston Tea Party.

little-neck or cherry stone.Restaurants for miles around specialize

in fried clam strips and stuffed clams. They are served raw, steamed, and in clam pastas. The uses are endless. People of the area were known not to even leavethe beach after collecting the local delicacy.They’d dig a deep hole in the sand andbuild a fire of driftwood. Seaweed collectedfrom the shoreline would be strewn on topof the hot rocks with their clams tuckedinside. All of this was covered with a tarpand a layer of sand and left to roast forhours, steaming the clams open and creating a New England clam bake.

James reached down and plucked another from the sand and pulled a multi-tool from his pocket. He snappedthe knife attachment open and dug it between the two halves of the clam’s shell,popping the hinge and opening it like abook. Using the tip of the knife, hescraped a lingering fragment of shell fromthe liquid around the muscle and handedit to me. “Here. Try one.”

I tipped my head back, sucking the nugget from its home. Salty brineslipped down my throat as I bit into the chewy, rich clam. I swallowed andsmiled. “Delicious.”

James just nodded.After an hour, my lips were blue, my

teeth chattered, and my flesh was coveredin goose bumps. I looked into my bucketand its measly half-dozen clams. “Just howmany of these things do I need for a bowlof soup?”

With a wink and a gruff laugh heslapped his knee and said, “How about youstick to cooking, and I’ll do the diggin’?”

That’s all the encouragement I needed to scamper back up the beach,wrap a wool blanket around my frozentoes and observe the digging instead of participating in the oceanfront foraging. ml

Directions1. Place the clams in a large bowl with the sea salt. Cover with one

gallon of water and place in the refrigerator for one hour.

2. In a large stockpot, sauté the bacon over medium-high heat until crisp. Add garlic, onions and celery, and sauté for 5 minutes until soft. Remove the clams from the salt water, discarding any broken shells, and add to the stockpot with the clam juice. Cover the pot to steam the clams for 5 minutes until they pop open.

3. With tongs, remove the clams from the pot and set aside. Discard any that don’t open.

4. Add the flour to the pot and stir to break up clumps. Add the milk, cream, potatoes and bay leaves and simmer for 30 minutes.

5. Meanwhile, shuck the clams from their shells and add to the soup. Season with cayenne, salt and pepper.

6. Taste and serve with oyster crackers.

It means my boat is protected by a company whose people truly understand

my insurance needs and go out of their way to help. As one of the largest and strongest

insurance companies in the world, ACE is there when I need them so I can focus on

enjoying time on the water with family and friends.
