When I stopped at F.L. Tripp & Sons Marina, it was not a scheduled stop. After coming out of the Cape Cod Canal the gooseneck broke on my boom and I was forced to find a place to stop and repair the Argo.

Because my sailboat is so old and it’s a racing yacht they did not have the parts required to do the job. I was able to locate a metal fabricator that made a new gooseneck. I was also able to acquire a new headsail and inflatable dinghy.

Because of its location in proximity to Newport, Rhode Island, it is a very busy marina and because of that it is very expensive marina.
