1987 46' Grand Banks Classic ... new owner

Hello All: A seasoned boater/sailor and professional mariner, recently divorced, so I went ahead and ditched the Manhattan apartment and am going to live-aboard Slow Poke... Summers in Maine w family and Fall-Winter-Spring (God Forbid) in NYC region "in the wet".

New adventures begin. Look forward to "Meeting" you online and perhaps cruising past you in Long Island Sound, Block Island Sound, Cape Cod & The Islands, or the Gulf of Maine.

Very nice vessel, use to have that plan of summering in Maine and wintering in Florida, then did the trip from NY to Florida and back and decided I wouldn't want to do that every year.
All the best!

Appeared to have a gaggle of 30 somethings enjoying a 'round the harbor tour'. Nice boat. Nice to see people out enjoying it.Click image for larger version

This is what it would have looked like from your perspective.

15 intoxicated 25 year olds sound horrendous and disaster waiting to happen. And I am assuming that you were completely sober AND had enough PFDs for everyone on board.

Hahha. I appreciate your comments and concern.

Like you I'm a professional mariner, in my case 30 years experience running as master and chief mate, so PFD's and a predeparture Safety Talk and non-drinking are just normal!

I'm a Maine Maritime Grad and have been working in oil and gas exploration since 1989.

So you're currently unemployed? What with the slump and all.

I started in oil and gas E&P during a HUGE slump in 1989, and have managed to stay employed during the next two cycles as well, 1996 and the present one. I'm at Noble Drilling. Guess I'm either lucky or competent!

How long have you been on ATB's?

Good. Seniority is a bonus! :-). I've been at this company for 23 years. And been on ATB s since 2009 when this was converted. Actually the one I passed you on I'm just filling in on for other Captain while he attends his sons graduation. My regular ride is in Shipyard.Click image for larger version
