Great thread- nice to see the variety of boats connected to their owners!

Bad news: Last cruise for 2021 after a fun season.

Good news: Boatyard needed more room in yard so they put me inside shed for same price. Merry Christmas!

Sad day yes- but like many- numerous projects to keep me busy until spring launch.

Happy Holidays to all.

God I love the Downeast, so proud to finally own one. Seeing them on the hard really shows off the design.

Feel your pain…. however you are a lucky captain to enjoy a 5+ hr final season cruise in December in the Northeast! You’ll be back on the brine soon.

Tried to extend my season as long as I could but it was time. Boat came out Saturday morning after a great first partial season with the new rig. Back in the yard for some creature comforts this winter. Looking to do beds for the kids as well as some seating for the family and fishing clients. Small galley up counter along with tackle storage. Back deck needs to get tightened up, out with the old hatches and in with some new. The fiberglass ones don’t seal well and the old Bomar’s need a rebuild. Overall I’m very pleased with how it turned out. Performance was excellent but I’ll be losing a touch of speed with a small needed prop tweak and hopefully tame it a little at the docks. This motor has been set to idle a little high and I found finally a Cummins guy confident that he can tweak my idle down to around 600 where it should be. I idle at 720 right now so it’s was a little high strung docking and idle in gear speed through the no wake zones and mooring field is 6.5 knots which earned me a few looks and gestures.

I can’t believe that’s the boat I looked at almost 2 years ago. You did an amazing job.
