I like the way you were upfront about sharing expenses.

One detail missing is the schedule -- you mention "fall" in the title. I was led to believe that the Gulf of St. Lawrence and Cabot Straight can be a very nasty patch of water once the autumn gales begin. Have the weather patterns changed so much that the old advice to be south of those waters by September no longer holds?

I'm not trying to be critical - - I'm genuinely curious. We hope to sail those waters some day.

Have you consulted the pilot books?
