- An Owner's Testimonial
- On 5-30-02 a letter received after the delivery passage of hull #1. ----- " I’m quite happy to be writing this letter today. I'm happy to be doing anything today. When we left Boothbay Saturday morning, I never thought the ride down to Montauk point would be the nightmare that it was. When we left at 05:30 the seas were around 3' to 5'. Around 09:30 they were 7' to 9' with an occasional 11' to 12' rogue. The waves came right over the cabin into the cockpit. It was like this until about 13:00. As we got closer to Provincetown the seas subsided and went back to 4'. The four aluminum framed windshields were the life savers. Several times the waves pounded the windshiels so hard we were certain they were going to crash right in. One large wave took our windshield wipers right off. With all this constant beating the windows never leaked a drop. The boat is as well made and safe a boat as anyone could ask for, or even dream of. The boat actually saved our lives. I know several other 35 ‘ Downeasters, that wouldn't have made it thru. We saw the bow get buried in the sea and come back up.... Just beggin' for more. We had a following sea all the way south and the hull didn't slide from Boothbay Harbor to Montauk point 177NM. We did it in just 13 hours & when mother nature let us we had no problem running her at 2,800 rpm giving about 17knots in 4' seas. The boat is a real beauty. You should be very proud of her. I am and I didn't build her. I would like to thank all of you for building a boat that saved my life. This is the truth. As I travel the high seas in the future I will always feel safe behind the wheel and will never doubt her at all. She is as tough as she is beautiful. When we docked at Montauk Marine I immediately had people asking me 20 questions about the boat. They all loved it. It's not the kind of boat you get to see every day. It really stands out in a crowd. I'm very proud of her and all of you should be too! If you ever need a character reference as a boat builder, please use me. You deserve all the praise I can give you. I only wish you were there with me to see your yacht perform, under the most miserable sea conditions. It was quite a shakedown cruise. Thank you all very much!
