While sailing out of Moriches Inlet Bryan discovered the bronze piece holding the tiller into place had broken, so he made a quick repair with things he had onboard. It should hold for some days until we find a welder somewhere along the coast.
We stopped at Block Island
Where we walked on solid ground for the first time in 3 days.
Near Quicks Hole our friend David Isenberg pulled up alongside the boat, and we went to try to catch striper, finally heading back to cook up some delicious bluefish. He invited me to do a concert in his home in Woods Hole MA on Saturday at 3pm (also my birthday) and we’ll get our piece for the boat welded that day as well.
Wow, 49 people at a moment’s notice, and a most enthusiastic audience! Thank you to David and Paula, and everyone at the last minute house concert! I enjoyed going to Friends Meeting Sunday morning.
Visiting a few harbors in Martha’s Vineyard.
