Boarding Last November
Heading out for a sea trial after some minor engine work. Joined by friends, Dwight, Larkin, Hugh (on camera) and Hugh's dog, Dave. . .
Seas in the 4' to 8' range. Winds from the northwest.
What's that astern? Small orange boat going 30 knots or more. Blue light.
They had been trying to board the new boat for quite awhile. New boat in town. An unknown. They attempted a week earlier in the 47' MLB but decided to postpone the boarding as I was in the middle of a survey.
It always pays to be courteous and cooperative during a boarding. Prickly and confrontational gets you nowhere.
My thanks to Hugh R. McKellar for the photos.
