  9. Many, many years ago.... I took the only swim I've ever had (or ever will) in the Gulf of Maine by diving off the rail of the Mary Day. (Buds Hawkins was skipper then.)

    I believe I came out of the water faster than I went in.

  11. Lovely photos! A few of which reminded me a bit of the classic, Oscar-winning Polish film, Knife in the Water from 1962. Filmed in the Polish lake district in black and white. Almost all of it takes place on a sailboat. Once seen, never forgotten!

  12. I sailed the Mary Day out of Camden late last Fall ... scheduled again for this summer. Have been sailing Maine windmammers since 1967. Not much has changed in 50 years ... except the ladies' bathing attire, lol!

  13. Been there done that and everybody should do it at least once....recommend The American Eagle, Capt. John Foss.
