Join Tom Richardson and Parker Kelley as they explore the historic city of Newburyport, Massachusetts, on the banks of the mighty Merrimack River. The pair kick it off by launching their Pursuit C260 at the Cashman Park launch facility before heading downriver to the city’s municipal floats. From this convenient base they check out the Black Cow and Michael’s Harborside restaurants, while exploring the vibrant downtown area.

Also in this episode is a scenic paddle with Plum Island Kayak and a guided tour of the river with Capt. Bill Taplin of Merrimack River Cruises. Newburyport Marinas’ Randall Lyons and Richie Twomey take time to discuss the company’s four marinas in Newburyport, and Parker stops by the Custom House Maritime Museum for a bit of historical perspective on the city and the Lower Merrimack.

Parker also enjoys a small-plane ride with local pilot Shwan Sammy of  Murray Aviation, while Tom pays a visit to Graham McKay at the historic Lowell’s Boat Shop, which continues to turn out finely crafted small wooden vessels while teaching students the art of wooden boatbuilding.Co-host Parker Kelley flies a plane over Newburyport
