Boothbay to Marblehead Saturday October 16, 2010

The weather forecast for Friday on the Gulf of Maine just keeps getting worse. It looks like a low-pressure "bomb" will develop early Friday morning and persist through Friday night, with winds potentially in excess of 50 knots, and seas potentially up to 14 feet or more!

So we're now thinking about possibly a mid-day Saturday departure, which should get us into Marblehead by mid-day Sunday (if not earlier -- should be a fast reach with strong winds out of the NW...), and folks back to Maine or New Hampshire by Sunday evening.
