On Captains Flats, in Duxbury MA this week. I wanted to check the zincs and clean her up a bit so I moved my home office [Belle Marie] to the flats. Was a beautiful day. - Bill
Imagine the freedom, the pleasure and the adventures possible cruising on a proven ocean-going boat drawing less than 26 inches (66 cm), that can run up on the beach or dry out with the tide anywhere!
THE SKINNY-WATER FLEET
"Twombly [the second Summer Kyle] went through the water beautifully. Even when the weather blew up hard between the openings [of the inland waterway], the flare of her bow split the waves really well. I couldn't imagine how she could be so stable. I now see the endless possibilities of a shallow water cruiser. As someone who has had long-legged sailboats myself, I realize all the water I've been missing!"
Jim Stanek, delivery captain with 30 years experience on all types of vessels.
