Moving to Maryland Marina

 

 

We placed Quadrille on the hard at Hance’s Point Yacht Club while we were away on the road. When we returned from our annual Switzerland trip we decided not to go back into the truck and wanted the boat back at Maryland Marina where she was the happiest.   We arranged to have slip 613 just two down from where we originally had her.  First we had to put her back in the water.  So we asked the volunteer crew at the Yacht Club to lift her from her stands into the water.  One of the members help us that day turned out to be Mike Dwyer.  Mike and I worked together at Kutztown University before my position was abolished. It was nice seeing him again and having his help.

 

 That is Mike third person from the right.  I am sorry I don’t know the name of the other 3 people helping out.  Many hands came forward and helped get her safely into the water.  We stayed overnight at the yacht club before taking off for her “new home” the next morning. We went south from the Hance’s Point light. Along the way we crossed the shipping channels that connect the Delaware Bay to the Chesapeake Bay and out to the Atlantic Ocean at Norfolk.   We had to watch for the commercial traffic in the channels, they have the right of way.   Given their size they would always have the right-of-way as far as Quadrille is concerned.  Bonnie safely navigated us around the commercial traffic.   We arrived late and the sun had just set.   The thirty nautical miles passed without any major problems.  The new fuel tank installed by Little Buffalo Marine worked just great.
