Leg 2 of our delivery would be a shorter day, from Annapolis to Chesapeake City onto Chesapeake-Delaware Canal.
We arrived in Chesapeake City by mid-afternoon, a relatively short 7-hour day. Chesapeake City has a free town dock but there was only a smallish stretch open. Would 39+ feet fit there?? The opening was between a very small power boat (as in a runabout) and the tour boat. The guy in the runabout helped us with the lines and Al parallel parked the Krogen into the tight spot.
Without planning ahead of time, Al’s daughter, Alicia, and her family live 20 minutes away and came to visit us, see the new boat, and have dinner. Every time we have cruised north or south, we stop at Chesapeake City so that they can visit. This would make the fifth time, continuing the tradition.
I may have to retract what I said about this being just a delivery trip with no fun time. It’s been great so far, and we even saw friends and family!
