A major milestone for Martha Lewis on March 8, 2024.  Martha last moved under her own power in November 2013.


TODAY she pulled away from the dock, under power, for her sea trial on the Choptank River. She performed beautifully under the command of Captain Rusty Geis and his crew, board members Dennis Taylor, Tom Carroll, and president Karl Fockler.
