It took 36 hours to travel from home in Rotorua to the tiny coastal town of Brooklin, Maine (USA) where WoodenBoat magazine has its amazing office. I don't sleep at all well on an aircraft and so was not in good shape by the time Publisher Carl Cramer dropped me off at my accommodation, I was completely on my own there as the summer visitors are rare that far north in January but was pleased for the peaceful spacious lodge after the horrors of being trapped in aircraft and transit lounges for that long. 3am though I awoke and could not sleep, my "clock" was telling me I should be up and about even though my body still felt awful, so there I was roaming around looking at the wonderful Spruce clad rocky shore and the sea gleaming like molten metal in the perfectly still moonlit night.
