Josh was born in May of 1994. He did not sleep through the whole night until he was sleeping on the Lady Carline. He is shown in the photo above in his car seat hanging in the gangway between the center cockpit wheelhouse and the aft cabin. He liked the swinging effect.

Max was born in February of 1997 and he also loved to be aboard the Lady Carline. As he grew up spending so much time at Cuttyhunk he, and Josh, became avid, accomplished boaters in boats of all sizes. After I had owned the Lady Carline for about 20 years the boys talked me into switching over to a powerboat.

The carefree days of growing up summer weekends at Cuttyhunk was the closest comparison I could find to my own experiences of summer days in the ‘50’s and ‘60’s at Craigville Beach. And, life aboard the Lady Carline helped make it all possible.

My Best,
