A day on the Nortumberland Strait

Our Roberts trawler, Maritana, spends the winter months on the wharf at Souris, Prince Edward Island, which is 96 nautical miles from its home port of Summerside.  Why?  Because Souris has a travel lift that handles the Maritana’s 32,000 pounds easily and there is lots of winter storage space on the wharf. The day long cruise either to or from Souris has been an opportunity to demonstrate the passagemaking ability of the displacement trawler in a beautiful maritime setting.  For a pictoral blog of the May 2008 voyage visit http://gentecltd.com/blog.htm
