It was a thunder and lightning night for 3 hours from midnight so a rather interrupted sleep.
In the morning we went ashore to the Wooden Boat School and watched a class steaming ribs for “ Greenland” Kayaks where the frame is sewn together.
A pleasant walk through the rural school grounds and then we moved to Center Harbor ( to spell it the American way ! ) where the Brooklin Boatyard is located, famous for building beautiful modern wooden yachts.
We picked up a mooring in the congested harbour and ashore in the boatyard met Norman Whyte who used to have Findhorn Boatyard and John diPretoro who I had met at Morris Yachts.
Moonbeam in the harbour
Wednesday morning we walked to the village and for a change had breakfast out! ( we did not eat for the rest of the day ! )
Back in the yard they were removing the keel from a modern wooden yacht that hit a rock HARD!
Again there were eagles and ospreys to watch but we headed up Eggemoggin Reech and after a look at Bucks Harbour which did not appeal to us we anchored in Orcutt Harbour- the only visiting yacht!
