Move it up to the Beverly/Salem, Ma area for one season. Moorings over there are around 800-900 a season. If you like it up here & the car ride isn't overbearing, make the jump up to Maine the next season. Then there's also Boston, slips 10K a season...

Don't worry about the nerve or experience, it's only the ocean. What's the worst that could happen that isn't going to happen in the end anyway?

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

Re: Mainers, Midcoasters, Maine

I didn't mean to sound like a "woe is me" type here. I hope to get down to Cape May in Sept and do some day trips from the harbor and back. Maybe even try for Atlantic City. "Baby steps"

This is a good thing for everyone of here to know! I've seen so many SNers helping others doing various things over the years.

Oh gosh, I didn't take it that way.

That's right about baby steps cause you've got a sailboat. Coastal cruising in one of these vessels is about checking off small mileage distances daily & digging life along the way

Re: Mainers, Midcoasters, Maine

Denise - Let me know what I can do to help.

After all our talks on HVACR I'll be happy to share my experience moving boats around solo/short-handed.

sail fast and eat well, dave

Re: Mainers, Midcoasters, Maine

Great stuff you write. I have lived in Stockton Springs for 3 years, have a mooring in the harbor and a Seafarer Meridian I'm still trying to launch. I hurt myself dry fitting the outboard to the well and face a new set of issues. This is prime sailing grounds, done it since I was a kid with cousins and on my own. I'm old too, semi retired but still need to work. I've been a chef for quite a while, 5 stars and falling stars. Cost of living is high here. Can't afford to stay year round, taking my dog, cooking tools and my kayak back to the south, Charleston, SC, putting my boat in charge to a trustworthy highly skilled boat guy. I'll come back to sail Echo for sure
