Boating

Power Boat

CurrentSea was the power boat that served the family well from 1991 to 2005. The name is a nautical reference to the old saying that "a boat is a hole in the water into which one throws money". Not that CurrentSea was any different than any other boat, and was well worth everything we put into it. Although we always enjoyed just cruising with different members of the family, my brother Ken and I got pretty good at slalom skiing. We finally had to part with her in 2005 after realizing that we didn't go out enough to make fixing the broken outdrive unit worthwhile.

Sailboat

Daddy's Dream was bought and launched for the first time by us in 1998. That was the name on the transom when bought, and since Ken was the driving force in buying it, and has a daughter, the name stuck. At first she was moored in Oyster Bay Harbor, near our parent's home, but in 2002 we moved her summer mooring to the Nissequogue River, near Ken's house. She wintered in my driveway. It's mostly Ken and I that did the sailing; while we were in Oyster Bay it was around there and Cold Spring Harbor, and from the Nissequogue out into Long Island Sound. The water is much more variable out there, but occasionally we got that perfect day of good winds and calm seas that made all the effort of upkeep on the boat worth it. Eventually Daddy's Dream started showing her age, including a slow leak probably around the keel opening. We sadly decided to let her go in 2015, after many years of fun and challenges.
