We’ve seen these boats from both sides now. Having sailed aboard Lynx and Bounty, we wanted to get the outside view in Portsmouth Harbor. Writer Rodman Philbrick took the helm of his fishing boat and for two glorious hours we wandered among the maritime traffic on a perfect Piscataqua Day. Here are the photos from our Memorial Day cruise with HMS Bounty and Lynx. (See photos below)

First we said "Hello" to the Lynx crew as they prepared to head out for the parade. Captain Jamie and seaman Dennis are seen in the first photo with marketing manager Ed Woodyward and Lynx creator Woodson Woods. We took off from Badger’s Island, Kittery, zipped under Memorial Bridge and waited for a good long while as the Lynx and HMS Bountry made their way to the mouth of the harbor where the parade began. – JDR
