I have to admit that I cheated a little here. I was at Mystic Seaport Museum a couple of days ago.

Traditional boats----yeah, that's the ticket.

Don, did you have your passport stamped to go north of the Mason Dixon line?

Mystic seaport is a great day for anyone boat obsessed.

Roans' restoration was a story in itself.

Capt. Jack, Shhhhh. This is a stealth trip. I'm still trying the silence those banjos that dwhatty is hearing. They follow me everywhere. We are in Maine now, so there're plenty of Yankee rednecks here. I'm starting to feel right at home.

In 1972 my sons at ages 8 and 10 had a picture made at the wheel of the Charles W. Morgan.

Roann is a fine looking boat but I'm smitten with the Florence in the third photo. Wowzers what a sheer.

Already passed it up. We're headed to Nova Scotia to hide out with the loyalists. There should still be some at Fort Louisburg. That was one of our great pre-revolution victories, but it somehow got lost in history.

If you visit Lunenburg, NS (and you should), you might want to visit the fisheries museum there. It is quite a nice museum.

Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic
https://fisheriesmuseum.novascotia.ca/

And take a look at some of the photos that document what a GREAT fishing ground that USED to be.

I would say while in NS that you should stop off and see AF Theriault & Sons are building...

Don, if you're interested in Loyalist history let me know... My mother has transcribed and published most of the records between the colonial governors (and their assistants) and British royal crown. The interesting thing is the vast number of people who believed the British would come back and protect their honor. Most of the loyalist were never repaid for their loyalty and losses. Kind of like now, when the government protects it's own...

I saw once where the cost to pay for transport from England to Georgia (with food) was 6 pounds sterling.

If interested in Loyalists, a visit to the "Loyalist City" Saint John, NB would be in order. This would also give you a chance to try the Reversing Falls... a spectacular entrance to the Saint John River. Make sure you read up on how to traverse the Falls first!

Just pulled in to the marina this evening. I know nothing about it, but it looks gorgeous.

Almost definitely an Army T-Boat. Speaking of which, has the Mi-T-Moe been seen lately? She used to cruise past my house twice a year but I haven't seen her in a long while.

MiTiMo is up for sale, has been advertised the last few months in a boating magazine. Do not recall the price but was pretty steep.

Marty,
Trimming a paddle wheel?
How does one trim a paddlewheel?
Up or down perhaps?

Same way you set your trim on a Johnson outboard
