IP395 - Hull #08 Offloads in New Haven, Connecticut


Island Pilot 395, hull #8, arrives in Connecticut. The rigging crew from Island Pilot signed into the port of New Haven at 4:00 AM to go over pre-launching details - at 7:00 AM the stevedores starting hooking her up to the crawler crane - and by 8:00 AM she was floating and underway, enroute to the Connecticut River.

By lunch time, she arrived in Essex and tied up at our Essex Station slip at the Chandlery. Later in the day, the Island Pilot rigging crew was well underway with clean up and outfitting. See photo right - Dave Munro (far right - Chief Island Pilot Tech) from our Fort Myers Station, Dann Cummings (center) and his son, Brian Cummings (in the hold), both from our Annapolis Station.

We plan to have both #08 (a single state room version) and #09 (a two state room, 2 head version) at both the Solomons Trawlerfest and at the Annapolis boat show!
