I recently purchased "Integrity", Hull # 126K and after an eventful trip down from Rockland, Maine she is now safely on her mooring in Keyport, New Jersey. During our trip the fuel filter and fuel line got clogged and we were forced to put into Provincetown harbor at night and pick up a mooring under sail. The launch operator at Provincetown that night was very helpful - He met us at the breakwater and guided us to our mooring. In Provincetown we managed to clear the fuel line and restock our supply of filters. We also jury rigged a backup fuel system using a six gallon gas tank and some five gallon jerry cans in case the problem with the main tank recurred. We had to keep track of how much fuel was in the main tank because we did not divert the fuel return to the temporary fuel tank (although it would not be difficlut to do).
We had an interesting ride out of the Cape Cod Canal into Buzzards Bay - 25 kts of wind opposing 4 kts of current made for a very short and steep chop. We had green water washing over the deck and the the prop lifted out of the water on one or two occasions. We expected conditions entering Buzzards Bay would be rough and had changed our fuel filter just before entering the canal. We also had our backup system ready to go. However, the engine ran just fine and I think the bouncing around probably stirred up whatever junk was left in the tank.
In addition to Provincetown (where we spent two nights) we stopped
in New Bedford, Stonington and Blackrock on our way down the coast.
I saw another Allied Seawind in Stonington but did not get the name
of the vessel or an opportunity to talk to the owner. We saw whales
and dolphins off the coast of Maine and a submarine off New London,
CT. The trip through Hellgate and down the East River was
unforgettable. We arrived in Keyport on Saturday evening in the
middle of a thunderstorm. A fitting end to a great trip.
Integrity proved herself to be a very capable vessel. At one point we had the rail under in 25 kts of wind trying to fetch the point at Cap Cod. Although the hull to deck joint appears to tight and dry, I have some rainwater leaking in around the port side locker and around the top of the door frame/compression post at the doorway to the head. I suspect the water is getting into the port side locker via a chainplate but I have no idea where the water at the top of the head door frame is coming from. Could it be getting in from the base of the mast or from one of the hatches? Anyway, I am looking forward to sailing and working on "Integrity". I have already learned much about these fine vessels from this group and I hope that I can contribute something to the group in the future.
