Hi Bruce and Hal,

I just got back from helping Lee & Sheila Keely get their new boat to Boston on their way home to the Chesapeake.  

We had a pretty rough trip across the Bay of Fundy and the Gulf of Maine, with south west winds at 25 knots and 8 – 12 foot seas.  The whole trip took 62 hours at roughly 7-7.5 knots.

The boat performed very well in the rough weather and at no point did we feel in any danger, even when we were taking a foot of water over the bow!  There were times when the whole foredeck was awash! So, I think we can safely say thank you for designing ANOTHER safe ocean worthy boat!  Thank God For Pilothouses!

Feel free to share these photos on the net, the owners are very happy and proud of their boat! Talk to you soon, Brian.
