Hope he spends LOTS of cash while he's here... Maine could use it!

She's in Portland Maine today. It was a miserable day so I just cruised around solo because the end of the season is fast approaching.

Picture #1 is the 453' Rising sun.

To put that in perspective, picture #2 is the 297' cruse ship Caledonian Sky which was berthed across the way.

Picture #3 is JRG's 24' Eastern Reece P., if you look closely, there is a gull on his radar dome.

LOL. Pictures taken from my own little 21' "MouseTrap" :D.

The name MouseTrap doesn't conjure up images of a big-burly boat, does it?

jrg, they set moorings close where you are huh!? looks like the mooring behind you is under your engine bracket.

They do set 'em close! That damn mooring has been a pain in the a*s for two seasons now. Not sure what's wrong with it, but I could put a 10 foot skiff on it and she'll swing at least 25' from my transom. Empty ball and it's right up my a*s every time. Must have too much & too light top chain or something.

MouseTrap - A bit of advice after watching that video - you might get better cruise numbers by switching to soup spoons! :D

and for a mere $2M and 500k a year in association dues you can own a cabin on it! sounds pretty reasonable :)
