Launching the 2012 Boating Season in Style

Boating season in some areas of the country has been underway for weeks or even months (indeed, for some fortunate souls it never ends), but in harbors north of the Mason-Dixon Line we usually have to wait until April at least before we wet the oars. But with the thermometer predicted to hit near 80 degrees for much of this week in the Northeast, the USHarbors crew decided the time was right to launch Bob, our appropriately named peapod tender, in Rockland Harbor, Maine. We all enjoyed a few strokes around the harbor before heading back to the office, smiling with the realization that lunchtime rows had now become part of the daily routine.
