It's not often that we meet another Alden 44 out cruising, but we've met one here in Maine. We saw it on a mooring in Rockland last week, but no one was aboard. Then Saturday as we were coming back from town the owners were on deck, so we stopped by to introduce ourselves and ended up sailing to Belfast together on Monday. That evening we had a delightful dinner together at an Italian restaurant called Meanwhile in Belfast. Needless to say, we found plenty to talk about because the owner of SV Speedbird is a pilot too!
