Inland Seas Arrives at Suttons Bay - April 13, 2009

The first trip of the season was from our winter berth at the Centre Pointe dock in Traverse City to Suttons Bay. The crew and ship had a nice motor north under fair skys and calm seas. Really calm in some areas that were covered in skim ice. We left at 0928 and arrived in Suttons Bay at 1147. The water temperature was 33 degrees F most of the way. The delivery crew consisted of Tom Kelly, Remy Champt, Allen Wolfe, Bob Hagerman, Larry Garber, Fred Utting, and Rebecca Hancock. Work now begins on re-rigging.
