I’m back and looking for virtual crew members to join the crew of Still Waters II on her Down East Loop Adventure.
The crew has successfully worked their way up the east coast and are currently in Cape May, New Jersey. They now sit less than one week out from launching their Down East Loop adventure which will start once they arrive in New York City.
You may be wondering though, What is the Down East Loop?
The short answer is that the Down East Loop is approximately a 2,700 mile adventure. The crew will leave New York City and head north on the Hudson River. At Waterford, New York, they will cruise the Champlain Canal to Lake Champlain, then the Chambly Canal to the St Lawrence Seaway.
Once on the Seaway, they will make a right turn and cruise out and around New Brunswick. The crew will take the Northumberland Strait between Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia. After rounding Nova Scotia, the crew will cross back to the United States to Maine.
They will then work their way south back to Cape Cod, then west along Long Island Sound and return back to New York City to complete the Loop. They hope to return to New York City some time in late September.
I will re-start my weekly updates starting next Sunday, May 26th, chronicling the travels, challenges, and history of the waters that Still Waters II and crew cruise.
Hope to see you back on board as virtual crew members and hope you enjoy the cruise.
We are planning to join the 2020 Cruising Fleet next March and chose to follow your crew this year to learn about blogging and to gain knowledge from your experiences en route. Have enjoyed the trip so far and look forward to the rest of the year.

Glad to have you aboard. If you look at the menu, you should notice maps by date. You could review your hose maps and associated blogs to help plan your trip. Best of luck!
Enjoying your posts, my friend. Get to share your exploits and travels with my students in prison. It is the only travel some of them will ever get to do. Teresa and I hope to see you guys again soon.

We are looking forward to seeing your travel blog and pictures. We are heading to Alaska to visit Greg’s relatives (Aunt & Uncle and 3 cousins scattered from Fairbanks to Anchorage). We will post on FB. More flooding here in midwest…so we decided to schedule the Alaska trip we promised to do this Summer
Wondered where you were and what no updates?

Thanks for the update, Dave. After returning to NYC in late September, will you continue navigating the Loop toward the Midwest?
We have not decided what we will do once we return to NYC. May put the boat in heated storage up north or go back south.

Glad to have you aboard
Look forward to your updates
