Hi all,

It's been awhile!

After all of the trials and tribulations of 2015 Kat and I decided we'd change things up for the 2016 season. We've said goodbye to Norwalk Cove Marina and have moved Sonny up to Essex. Brought her up last Sunday and then spent the first overnight on her last night. Bit of an adventure since we have two good sized labs who, to date, haven't been boat dogs!

All went well and I thought I'd share a couple of shots of Sonny in her new home. Essex Island, C-dock.

Stop by and see us if you're around!

Thanks for the update Doug...NICE move. Good she's pointing up river.

You're new location should help us cross paths (wakes, whatever) this summer as we never really head west of Saybrook in the LIS. Boat looks great. Maybe we'll see you at the rendezvous? You've just shaved quite a bit off the run to the Peconics..

I was just thinking about you yesterday, Doug, and wondering where you'd been and how you're doing.

The boat looks terrific and very happy in her new home.

Here's to an enjoyable season!
