John Niccolls, ex-Knock Off 37VT66, on the flying bridge of his new Monk 36. Just delivered Mary Alyce from Great Bridge, Virginia to her new homeport of Herrington Harbor South, MD.
The flying bridge was abandoned when the sun and the temperatures fell. But operations continued smoothly at the lower steering station throughout the night. The radar proved invaluable for avoiding the abundant commercial traffic. The 150 mile, 18 hour trip came to a successful conclusion at 0400 hrs. How often can a skipper say he's got more night hours on his boat than day hours?
