Salem to Cuttyhunk is about 80 miles, that would be quite a long day (and night) in 32 feet.
A stop in Scituate or Plymouth, then another in Cataumet would make the trip fun as opposed to tremendously tedious. There's not much to see/do at Cuttyhunk, I'd visit Vineyard Haven, Oak Bluffs (for th ekid...) and Edgartown, and even Hadley Harbor, before heading out west to Cuttyhunk...
