Re: Mainers, Midcoasters, Maine

OMG! Marine rates in Maine seem to be close to double of what they charge on the Chesapeake!

As others have said it's never too late. Maybe you should bring your boat up this way & come up for a couple weeks at a time. It's really not that far a ride from where you're at presently.

Happy Birthday on Sunday!

I'm not happy unless I'm complaining about something.
I'm having a very good day!

It's very expensive to live up here in New England.

Tim has a pretty good deal for a year round slip for a 40'. Moorings in the river down near Portsmouth on the ocean side of the bridges are about 3k a season. A slip up river for my 28' boat would set me back 3K, a mooring would cost 1200.

Everyone always comments on the quality of life up this way, problem is you work like a dog to enjoy it.

Re: Mainers, Midcoasters, Maine

Denise, Stop feeling sorry for youself. 64 is far from old. If I were you I would head south this fall. By the time spring rolls around, you'll have the confidence to head north, and conquer Cape May, and wonder why you hadn't done it sooner.
You have the knowledge, and the skill will come quickly, but you have to untie those docklines. I'm 74, and did just that in a 36' catamaran 15 years ago, and several more times after that, always singlehanded.
Just do it. You wont be sorry.
Marc
