Back on land again, it is near the end of quarter and the shop is busy. SILENT MAID is headed north to Newport. Had the best time motoring up the East River yesterday. Noticed that the pumps were running more than usual when we were motoring. John and John tracked the leak down to the transom and the keel. JB caulked it with string and a screwdriver. How cool is that, so resourceful. Slowed it down a lot. Made egg salad for lunch. BARNEGAT caught up to us with Henry and Sam aboard. Put the sail up in 20+ knots, two reefs in first. She is a lot to handle and the helm was heavy, but I am not a bit sore today. Tonight MARION will get her name.
