Since 1978 I have been fortunate to sail wooden boats. In 2006 I set out to find a Drascombe Longboat Cruiser for single-handed expedition sailing. This is the continuing story of how it came to be, our adventures, notes on the maritime world and other things I don't want to forget...

Down the Bay

Just back from a long weekend on the restored log deck boat F.D Crockett out of the Deltaville Maritime Museum. We attended the Poqouson Seafood Festival and served as committee boat for the annual workboat races. Beautiful weather, great crew and generous hosts. Here's a few photos...

The 'Crockett' was built just up the river from Poquoson
