Staten Island, New York

“Always can find room for a looper”, was John’s friendly greeting.  John is a Looper “Harbor Host” and is exactly what we think a “Harbor Host “should be, he is extremely knowledgable and accommodating! His Yacht Club is on a beautiful calm harbor in New York City.

The Club’s bar is where we met two other Looper couples and learned about the area. Leslie and Mark aboard “Antonia” had a rental car and took us to Frank and Sal’s Italian deli  to get a few provisions and a hero sandwich for Loren, his first.  “Antonia” was one of the fourteen boats we looked at before buying Dream Seeker (six degrees of separation).

Loren chose to stay behind and became a super giant spider killer. He scrubbed the decks and headings industriously. Can we ever get rid of these insidious insects?      Loren has been a great help and proved to be very knowledgeable as well as fun.           We did man overboard drills and I piloted the boat.

The plan is to enter New York Harbor on Thursday afternoon.
