Marionette's Log, 2022 - updated June 27, 2022  

May 15, 2022 After the 2021 Camden Classic Cup regatta the decision was made to winter Marionette in Camden, Maine at the Lyman Morse boatyard, and have a 2022 season on the Maine coast. Alas, not to be and on May 10 she was transported back to Connecticut. Thanks to neighbor, John Williams, we have a photo of Marionette peeking out of her boatyard berth before her winter cover.

Peaking or Peeking

Webmaster Note, May 20, 2022 - John Williams - the neighbor - has an interest in 24' boats - He has a Bridges Point 24. He understands the need/desire to care for pretty boats - he saw us working to prep Marionette for her return to Connecticut road trip - and brought us snacks!!

Thanks John!


Right - Given 20+ winter years in her barn we're not sure how Marionette liked her white coat but such is life.....

On a long weekend, made manageable by several $30+!! lobster rolls, your webmaster and Marionette crew son Mike undressed her and got her ready for her 350 mile road voyage to Cove Landing Marine on Hamburg Cove, Lyme, CT.

Driver Mark arrived May 10th and we left Camden at 11:30 - 'TEER in the pick up truck bed, drove thru Camden, stopped at Taste of Maine for parting lobster rolls, and arrived safely in Lyme at 5:30
