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
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.
