Cam-

I steer around the largest concentrations... so I only have to dodge a million. But, I can understand that at your age... seeing the buoys can be tough.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Nah...we let the mediocre ones out of the state. There's a difference.

I challenge anyone to pull into Lunt Harbor on Frenchboro Island, grab a mooring, eat a lobster at the local lobster pool and tell me that it's just as good anywhere else.

Also, it's a lot less expensive here - not counting the couple you can easily bum off a lobsterman. I just returned to Maine from Florida on my boat and saw the lobster prices all along the coast. It was pretty shocking...

Frenchboro, Long Island was one of my most memorable stops. I anchored in the cove on the NE side and walked over through the woods to Frenchboro where I ate one of those lobsters. The best.

Look on the bright side..you won't need a dinghy. You can walk ashore on snowshoes... ;-)

That's what we used to say about Cape Porpoise.
