Our first season with "Ladyslipper" we sailed from Ossining, New York, down the coast to the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay, up through the bay and the Chesapeake-Delaware Canal, down the Delaware River and back home. This photo helps us remember a night tied to a dock up an estuary on the north side of the Delaware River. The boat shown leaning in this photo filled with water in the night and fell over with a crash. If we had been tied up beside that boat we might have lost our mast.
