I'd add that you NEED either Eldridge's or Reed's East Coast... either Nautical Almanac will have the information you need to get through the Cape Cod Canal... do not try the canal if the wind is out of the southwest and strong... Best if the wind is out of the north.... otherwise, the Buzzards Bay end of the canal can be very interesting, with standing waves batting your boat around like a toy... A 42' LOA boat will have an easier time of it than a smaller boat though.

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.
