Good morning everyone, and a very Happy New Year to all! 2022 is now in the rearview mirror, and as we look back we can be proud of the work we accomplished this past year. In total we ran 37 charter boat trips from CT to Maine between 5 captains, with Capt. Shawn up in Maine doing the heavy lifting this year. In addition to our regular small group charters, we also ran 2 very successful 'headboat' trips, partnering with Eastman's Docks in New Hampshire and with Seven B's in Rhode Island to do a pair of large group trips. In total, we were able to get 340 deserving veterans out on the water last season. Our thanks to all our captains, as well as the peer support counselors, group coordinators, and all those we work with who quietly make it all possible. It takes a village, but we have a great one! We are looking forward to an even busier 2023 season, and stay tuned - we may have a fun surprise up our sleeve! In the meantime, stay well, be safe, and we'll see you in the spring! ...
