Thanks again...

Now we're talking. If you would like any input, let us know.

We went to Maine last year and found it beautiful. Our home waters are great too, but not the same sense of isolation. Just the opposite in some places. Still, if you have 4 hrs per day to sail, you have dozens of places to go. Some do require you to be on the hook, but generally very good holding in the bay. Heading out toward the Vineyard or Nantucket are possible, with 4 hr stops along the way. Block island is a grounder, or even use it as a stop over on the way to Eastern Long Island.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
