I'm moving onboard a boat I bought (surveyed, good, solid). A Pearson Triton, nicely equipped. My plan is to sail north this summer from Newport, RI. I'm trying to keep my goals to a minimum and focus mostly on being safe and enjoying myself, but I'd like to make it to Maine and if things are going really nicely to Canada. I have 2 or 3 months.

I'd like to leave Narragansett bay feeling very comfortable handling the boat by myself. Any thoughts?

If you make it this far, and you should, send me a pm a couple of weeks before you expect to make Mount Desert Island. I have an extra mooring in Seal Harbor this summer and if someone else isn't already using it I will be glad to share it with you as you head east. Enjoy the trip. It is beautiful cruising "Downeast".
