"THE OCEAN HOUSE & Capt. Jack
It was fantastic!...
However, the best part of our trip was chartering a sail boat on Saturday afternoon. We chartered the boat 'Trim Again' for two hours. We were picked up by Jack Spratt (owner of 'Trim Again' and our captain) in his very own Model T Ford. When he heard that it was our first time in Watch Hill, he gave us a tour of the area on the model T before heading to the sail boat. Upon entering the cabin of the sail boat there were a dozen roses and a personal note from Jack wishing us a happy anniversary. He taught us all about sailing and let us drive the boat and get very involved while also giving us some alone time, encouraging us to sit at the front of the boat on our way back during the sunset. I originally booked the boat for 2 hours, from 1:30pm - 3:30pm. He asked if we had any other plans for the day which we did not and he gave us an extra 2 1/2 hours on Trim Again. We didn't get back until after 6pm. We toured the entire area, saw some beautiful homes on the water, it was a beautiful day and never got too chilly (he had blankets and coats on the boat if we did). Jack even gave us some home made apple cider. Susan, it was such a wonderful experience. It reminded us of when we chartered a boat in st. tropez on our honeymoon. Jack doesn't make anything off of these trips and he would not accept any tip from me after the trip. If anyone of your clients like boating/sailing and you're sending them to ocean house, i would HIGHLY recommend booking a trip w/ Jack Spratt on his boat (Trim Again).
