Re: New in Narragansett Bay
Ok, so I'm glad I asked this question (about sailing Plymouth to Providence, the
CC Canal, etc). Dinghy or liferaft? Well I will need a little tender, but wasn't planning on a life raft. Should I? Not going to be cruising a lot,more daysailing, but a trip to the islands, Block, Cuttyhunk, MV, once or twice a season.
For Plymouth to Providence, was planning on towing a small inflatable dinghy.
That safe enough for an emergency in early May?
Also, sounds like I really need to avoid the railroad bridge coming down while en route: only have a Yanmar 13 hp on this boat (S2 30), which is not enough power to go against the Canal's current.
Can you find out on web if bridge will be down? Or just radio canal manager?
I do not have much experience, but will be sailing with a very experienced sailor.
Definitely need him on this first trip...
