Memorial Day

My Dream Boat

I live on the water and the weather is beautiful today; I can’t think of a better way to spend Memorial Day than on a boat. Sailing is great, but I’ve never had the desire to own a sailboat larger than a Sunfish. What I really want, is a Hinckley Picnic Boat. We had one on the Vineyard mid 90’s, and a few years ago, I spent an afternoon circling Islesboro, Maine with friends on their 36-footer. My dream boat.

  • When we had a house on the Vineyard, we’d settle in Memorial Day weekend, and this year is the first time I’m really missing it. We had a picnic boat (not a Hinckley) and would spend most days on it, anchoring somewhere for lunch and a swim. Feeling very nostalgic reading this post.

  • Ah, sweet nostalgia! I have such good memories of swimming off these boats as a girl.
