“Narwhal’s a 1970’s Bristol 24: a beamy, full-keel pocket cruiser. She’s a fiberglass sloop with 6′ headroom below, sleeps 5 and has a wood or coal burning camp stove for cold nights.
I bought her in 2018 while visiting a friend in Maine. I got a ton of help and learned a lot fixing the things she needed. We sailed the Maine coast from August to October, living in Belfast harbor for a bit. In 2019, we could only sail on weekends, stowing cars, calling friends or hitching hiking back each Sunday. All together, I made it from Belfast to Mount Dessert Island that year.
Covid kept us apart In 2020, but I’ll be back in 2021. I’d like to make it to the Brother’s islands.”
