Re: Purchasing a Sailboat from the US?

HS, yes Providence airport is 30 to 45 mins away, depending. I'm not even sure you can get there on a direct flight from either Montreal or London, so that would add even more time.

One boat is owned by two families and they seem to timeshare. One comes for a couple of weeks straight and then the other. Their boat, by the way, is a shambles. They didn't even cover it over the winter. Long distance romance, I guess. But, I think they just use it as a foreign vacation cottage.

The other is a very nice Hallberg, kept in nice condition. They come from London and spend several long weekends and a few straight weeks throughout the summer.

As far as the Newport bridge, you should see the work they've done to add speed lanes to the toll plaza. The town father's have fully embraced collecting that money as fast as humanly possible.
