Before we left the Summerside Marina we met Brent Drummond who lives on PEI and keeps his 2008 Chaparral 280 at the same marina. Brent saw the iboats.com name on our boat and said it was on iboats classifieds where  Brent found his boat for sale in Buzzards Bay, MA. He called the dealer, negotiated a good price and drove to MA and pulled his boat back to PEI on it's trailer. Way to go iboats!

After leaving the Summerside bay we headed along the west coast of PEI toward Charlottetown. In the distance we began to see the huge 8 mile long Confederation Bridge linking PEI to the mainland.
