    Summer Love

    I have seen Summer Love in Annapolis a few times.
    She has been M.I.A. lately.
    I found her by chance in a little creek we were exploring about a month ago and came across her yesterday as well.
    She is a 1958 Feadship
    Originally 61 feet and extended to 71'6" later in life.

    Checkmate, Winning Drive and Line Drive

    For Annapolis Yacht Basin, Checkmate is huge.
    I think it is the biggest yacht I've ever seen there.

    The boat in the last picture, with her stern to the Checkmate, is a 46 or so Chris Craft that really looks small in contrast.

    Checkmate has a cruising speed of 14 knots and can be chartered for a base rate of $ 200 K a week.
    We piddled by her in an inflatable and she is a sight to see.
    I would not want to keep her black hull clean but her crew did a great job, it was spotless.

    We were anchored up the Corsica Saturday and Sunday. "Winning Drive" was there at the owner's dock. I think we passed your 46 Post on Sunday in the Chester at about 1 PM when we were headed back to Kent Narrows. I may be wrong, but your second video to me looks like an 85' Pacific Mariner that blew past us headed down river off the South end of Eastern Neck Island.

    Sea Eric,
    I would not argue with you about the Pacific Mariner.
    It is so seldom that we see boats of that size up the Chester that I ASSumed.

    Were you in an aft cabin ?

    Yes. I was aboard my 41 Hatteras TC. My friends were just ahead of me heading down the river in their 48 Hatteras MY.

    Summer Love.

    dbltime,

    I Googled Summer Love and found the same info.
    I know she is a small yacht for this web site but I think she is cool looking.
    I had never heard or 6-110's and thought it was a typo.
    I would like to see them, although they prolly look just like an overgrown 6-71.

    I think she looks a little heavy in the bow but I attribute that to the lengthening of her.
    She sorta looks like she's plowing to me when underway.

    I wondered if she was for sale and headed into Annapolis for the boat show.

    Still, she is a traditional kind of yacht that I love to see in person.

    She is a sistership to my 41 Hatt. In fact she is one hull number higher than mine. We are dock neighbors now at Piney Narrows.

    Unbelievable !!
    and both of you in P.N. too.

    I saw a really nice older Hat sport fish there.
    Yellow hulled. Looks like someone spent alot of time and money on her.
    Another nice on that I have a pic of somewhere....

    Not a Yacht but worth a look.
    A short video of the Liberty Ship John W. Brown, complete with Bi-Plane buzzing them
