She pulled and docked down the dock from us for about 3 days.  The owners son Captain Geoffrey Jones brought her into Halifax Marina.

He is out of Mystic CT.

  1. I can’t believe she’s 131 years old … somehow I don’t think our boat will last that long.

    • Geoffrey and his father (age 88) have spent several years getting Anne to its current condition. Seeing it is so impressive with all they have done on her.

  2. The father is actually 80.
