Last Friday the crew (Tom Kelly, Remy Champt, Jan Hale, Bob Hagerman) motored Inland Seas to Traverse City for winter storage. After filling the fuel tanks and pumping out the holding tanks we berthed her alongside the wall at Centre Pointe. Thanks to Dave Mathia and Centre Pointe for the complementary winter dockage.

We were in good company there, with the MHA's Herreshoff H-28 ketch and the Mary J behind us and their newly aquired cutter Champion in front. Champion will be hauled out and Liberty will take her place on the wall for the winter. -Capt. Tom K.

  1. An inland sea is a shallow sea that covers central areas of continents during high stands of sea level that result in marine transgressions. In modern days continents stand high, eustatic sea levels are low, and there are few inland seas, none larger than the Caspian Sea. Modern examples might also include the recently less than 10,000 years ago reflooded Persian Gulf, and the South China Sea that presently covers the sunda Shelf.
