Re: Marblehead to Hampton, NH

Alden, I reread my post and I don't think that I was clear on going inside Thatchers. I go inside fairly regularly myself. The reason that I said to think twice is it can get really bumpy in there if there is a swell running. I have also seen more than one boat not follow the channel that well and run aground there. I actually jumped in my dinghy and went over and helped someone patch a hole there a few years ago because they strayed out of the channel. I guess that I should rephrase it and say that you should look at the chart before going inside and don't do it on a rougher day especially if the tide is lower.

Sorry for the confusion.
