Re: Maine to Chesapeake Fall Passage

Another consideration.
Do you have a reliable auto pilot or steering vane on your P33? It can be done without an auto pilot but allows you a lot more freedom and generally makes watch standing a bit easier.
Do you have radar? Maine = fog.
Do you have charts for the entire trip yet?

It sounds like a fun trip to me. You might be able to pick up some crew along the way from here/sailnut or other forums.
You would likely learn a lot and (hopefully) gain a lot of confidence in your and your boat's abilities.

I say go for it. Get going soon.
