Patriot Cruising

Cruising Our Mathews Brothers Patriot 29


This is the home page for a collection of blogs about cruises that Dorie and I have taken for the most part on our Mathews Brothers Patriot 29 powerboat.  We live in St. Michaels, Maryland where we keep her, and since 2005 we have been cruising her in the Bay as much as we can.  

For a general collection of photographs taken on the Bay with text descriptions, please see the following from our trips on our Patriot 29, by car, and walking around St. Michaels:

For my favorite photographs from those trips, a photograph only site can be found here:

In June and July of 2013, we took her out of the Bay for the first time and did a cruise up the Hudson River into Lake Champlain.  The photograph in the header was taken as we came back to Dorie Leigh from the dock at Hero’s Welcome in North Hero, Vermont.  We kept a blog of the trip which can be found here sequentially:
