Hundreds and hundreds of square miles of them. It just depends on how well you want to be protected and how close to Stuff - places, services, etc.... In the multitude of settled coves along your way (at least in the N.E.) the progression is something like this - on the outside you can anchor and the protection will vary on how deep the cove goes inland and how many turns it takes - then come the semi-protected mooring fields for a price $ - then maybe a breakwater or sharp turn and more moorings for a bigger price $$ - then comes the marinas with docks and services for an even bigger price $$$.
Low cost in New England ....... don't you know we are all RICH Up Here There is Nothing Low Cost in New England
