SV Seeker on Vacation –

DougSteel Boat

Love New England.  I was not planing on a vacation but the ability to see so many boats, of so many varieties and especially the Draken Harald was too much to pass up.  And it was especially convenient once we could combine it with a road trip west to pickup a gift of inverters and a bank of nickle iron batteries from Ron Buttke in Janesville Wisconsin.   And while so close we made it to Lincoln Nebraska to visit relatives milk goats and buy an inflatable life vest for our sailing trip. Betsy did a fantastic job with the itinerary. Boats, more boats, museums , pirates, great food and even a chance to say howdy to Keith Fenner.   We’ll be back.  Hang two lanterns in the belfry.  –Doug
