That's an understatement Cam...

I'd second the Cuttyhunk moorings, as it is beautiful there...

The one real danger you have to watch for is a late season Nor'Easter blowing in off the water... That will put a huge monkey wrench into your plans. Definitely practice reefing on the new boat...and get the kinks worked out of the gear, or at least find out what they are on the first couple of days.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
