Check out the 36′ Northern Bay built, “Starlight Express” perform. E9 Mack engine, quad turbo? Is that right??! Thats some power boy. mmm, Power.

I said to Hollywood, “where’d he go?”
Hollywood says, “where’d who go?”

Looking good mr Clemons!

Get me this Boat! 44′ Calvin Beal, f/v Overkill!

Launched today at O’Hara’s in Rockland a 44′ Calvin Beal. 17+ beam. This boat is a great example of a skeg built hull. 30,000lbs boat powered with a V8 680 Deutz. Big time Charlie, big time.

Relentless Quest, a group of girls and more

“PUT THE HAMMER DOWN MR JOHNSON!!!” OH HO HO, OH HO HO

Shots early on for the video are in harpswell on board the f/v “Whistlin Dixie”. Captain Andy Johnson’s 38′ Holland with 1000 HP CAT. I mean the thing idles at 9 kts. guy. Got some shots of Tom Clemons and his 46′ WesMac, f/v “4 girls”, got some shots of Chris Young and his 42′ Duffy, f/v “Miss Madeline”.

And now we get a little flavor from the Portland Lobster boat races, I think this video was shot on board Captain Chip Johnson’s 35′ Mitchel Cove with 650 Mack, f/v “3 Stars”. To his port side is Cap. Clemons and the “4 Girls”, (named because that’s at the top of his bucket list, 4 girls at the same time. just kidding. but really. just kidding).

Inbound

Sea tunes on the steam in this evening. Awesome day on the water.

Talkin some Casco Bay Action

Headed aboard the f/v Hunter James for a trip this morning. Yarrrrr!!

Seems like well over a month my have passed since I stood on deck. Being on the water, especially offshore, in the winter months is the most surreal time of the year.

NE winds 5-10 kts, shifting to SE in the afternoon. Temps in high 30’s.
