Don’t miss the Essex, Connecticut, episode of New England Boating TV, airing on NESN at 9:00 p.m. on Monday, December 30, 2013.
The NEB crew trailers their Boston Whaler 250 Outrage to the scenic and historic town of Essex on the lower Connecticut River. After settling in at the Griswold Inn, they embark on a river tour with Ben Wilde of Wilde Yacht Sales. Wilde dispenses valuable firsthand knowledge of the approach to Essex, from the river mouth to the harbor. After that, Parker and Tom do some fishing for blue crabs around the Essex docks, and have them prepared by the Griswold Inn’s chef.
Other stops include the Essex Island Marina (which served as home for the Whaler during the episode), a ride on the Essex Steam Train, a visit to the Connecticut River Museum, and a nature tour on the river with RiverQuest.
It’s an action-packed episode on a must-visit boating destination you won’t want to miss!
