Fourth of July cruising Pictures

Here's a few of ours (Not great quality. Sorry.) taken on Saturday before the camera batteries went dead. Trip was a short 3 hour run from Buck's Harbor at the head of East Penobscot Bay, Maine, down the* upper bay, then west through Fox Islands Thorofare (separating North Haven and Vinalhaven Islands) to West Penobscot Bay, then down through Ledbetter Narrows off of Vinalhaven Island to friends' private Island. A good time was had by all.

Relevant charts:

Fox Islands Thorofare

RE: Fourth of July cruising Pictures

Great photos! When I was a kid, my folks took me to a friends house on Vinalhaven, he drove an old surplus Willys and picked us up at the ferry landing. Took us fishing in his runabout and I caught 7 mackerel at once and then he showed us who to pan fry em for breakfast. wasn't the 4th of July but it was in July. Love that part of the world. Thanks for sharing.

David,

Wonderful pictures. Looks a lot like the San Juan Islands in Washington state. One day I'm going to come out to Maine and spend some time. Want to see the lobster boat builders (especially wood) and see all the old boats everywhere. Boats that one almost never seen in the west are rather common out there. It must be a bit like Europe. Lots of older things. Thanks for the pics.

When you refer to older things, I hope that you are not referring to me, however I might resemble that remark.

The only Maine wooden lobster boat builder that I know of (both work and recreational boats) is Peter Kass. Works of art. There may be others tucked away.

Yes, though, lots of wooden boats, both new and old. The Eggemoggin Reach Regatta at the beginning of August, although all blowboats but with a few wooden power boat groupies, is a sight to behold.

Love the schooner photos, particularly since schooners*are the handsomest/sexiest sailboats.

*I think its this boat (Google search strikes again. Sorry Baker & Doug)

Of course, it would look better with a white hull.

I thought it looked like a Lord Neslon but forgot they made a 43. Love their lines, even if interiors are small!

Really nice photos, Dave and Emily. Those shots of the short cruises on this site really makes one swoon, and I find New England and the PNW the most interesting for Trawler watching.

*But Florida is warmer in the winter and allows year round boating. If only one could have it all. (Quiet Seahorse).

Nice!*** JohnP
