Favorite Anchorage
Not telling..., but we like Dun Cove and LaTrappe Creek, too.

Our favorite weekend cruise destination has to be Chance Harbor, for the Labor Day weekend festivities there. So far, we haven't missed one since getting the boat and it has been an outstanding weekend every time. Mostly because of the good friends and fun we have while there.

Haven't cruised enough yet to have one, but looking forward to trips to St. Mary's City and other points this year.

Favorite thing about the boat
Terry: Being "Terry, Queen of Speed Cohen" (Holder of the Highest recorded speed while at helm) Seriously, it's comfortable and gives a sense of luxury, but never fails to remind me that it's taking good care of me. In short, it's solid and beautiful. Tim: The pride and embarrassment (after all, I didn't design her) I feel when everybody tells me what a beautiful boat she is and what great lines she has. Seriously, she is so well balanced that on one stunning night sail, my son and I kept her on course for almost 20 miles by simply changing our positions in the cockpit. I love her under sail on a moonlit night. She is poetry in motion.
Least Favorite thing about the boat
Terry: The Head sits up too high.

Tim: I would like to change parts of the interior to match Tommy and Rae Thompson's boat. They gave up the quarter berth for a second huge cockpit locker and much improved wet locker, and ended up with with a decent seat back at the nav station.

Since they are the original owners and supervised its construction, they added many other superb features. Before my bride and I depart for a crossing of the big pond, we would like to make some of those layout improvements.
