Maine 2011

A trip to Maine in the middle of May led to fog and rain and a great boat launching.  Friends launched an Alden 65 foot motor sailer in Rockport.  It was a 3 year restoration at Rockport Marine.

The owners like to sail in Sweden, where a cabin house with a view is nice in some weather, so the launching had a Swedish flair, from uniforms to the great food at the launching.  Here are - from left to right - the owners, Michel and Marcy, the yard owner, Taylor, and the job super (whose name escapes me).
