Buddy Boating sounds like a good idea if our trips coincide.
I expect to leave NH after the second week in Oct. Weather permitting I could see Block Island in 2 days.
Based on the great advice I have received from this thread from that point on if I have crew Ill go outside to Chesapeak or without crew Ill go LI Sound on to Cape May
