Welcome Aboard!


This is the log of the M/V Maerin, her crew and her travels. Learn about the vessel, meet her crew, see where she’s been and where future ports of call are planned. Check back for updates and for her current location! Thanks for visiting!

Some notes on the site and function:

  • The site is a blog, it is running on WordPress with NextGEN Gallery embedded to manage an extensive photo album. Captain’s Log posts are  GeoCoded , so our position at that posting will be pinned onto a standard Google Map. See the Location page. Don’t overlook the Photo Gallery, it expands on the photos posted in the blog.
  • Because it’s a blog format, visitors can log comments. It becomes more of a community interaction. You’ll find the comments open in the posting sections. Please, let us know you were here, leave a comment! Comments are what make the blog fun for us!
  • RSS feeds can let you know when areas of the blog have been updated. So if we add new photos, or new posts, you can get a note. If you see the RSS RSS icon, to set up the feed, just click on the icon to subscribe to the page. When that page is updated, so will your RSS bookmark in your browser bookmarks.
  • The blog has undergone extensive updating in the 1st quarter of 2020 and moved to a new server. If you discover things that are broken,the webmaster would appreciate knowing, so feel free to drop a line. 

Thanks for visiting, and remember, this is a blog, we really love getting comments, it makes it a lot more fun! So don’t be anonymous!!

    Hi Sipes:
    Just speaking to another yorker that on his boat. He is back in york for minor surgery and then its back to the boat which they left in Baltimore.Their names are Pat and Randy Routson and they sail now but are thinking trawler. their web site is WWW. hbsailing.com and the e-mail is hbsailing@hotmail.com.
    Hope things are going well with you. Vonnie and I are spending just about every weekend in Rock Hall and doing some fishing and crabbing but mainly drinking and eating.
    We lost our furry baby last night so this weekend will be a bit empty.Looking forward to hearing from you.

    John And Yvonne

    Looks like you guys got out of here just in time! We were blasted with snow on Saturday (I’m sure you already knew…) I measured about 12 inches up here in Dover, PA. Keira and I built her first snowman yesterday.

    Stay warm!! HA HA
