Re: New England sailors?

I think its fair to say that the vast majority haul out for the winter. The Bay never freezes, but the coves where you find many marina do, especially this winter.

I can so hardly rely on marinas for anything, worrying about powering a bubbler would cause me to lose sleep all winter. Some do it, however.

Re: New England sailors?

There's a live aboard group in water in Barrington . Most are out. Other thing you may wish to consider is trade of being close to airport v. Airport noise. Advantage of Barrington and Bristol,is no take off noise but is a lousy commute from airport. If you come this way shoot me an pm and forward you info on other v42 owners in the area.

Re: New England sailors?

I live on Warwick cove and there are plenty of slips available here. You are 10 minutes from the airport and the ride out of the bay is enjoyable. After all, we are sailing, not pushing to get to a fishing spot.

Look at Harbor light Marina...good amenities for the "out of towner" so you can be comfortable between cruises.

No affiliation as I moor my boat, I just know that they have a nice facility

Re: New England sailors?

okapi-
Make sure to ask, and look, carefully if you are anywhere within sight of an airport flight pattern. Jets tend to burn rich on landing and take-off, and that makes a lot of fine black soot, which leaves very dirty topsides on boats. Easy enough to clean, but it can mean a lot more cleaning and waxing to be done, unless you don't mind turning a blind eye.

And of course you're breathing the soot, which apparently is why the EPA banned so many diesel engines from passenger cars in the US for so long. Not good stuff.

Re: New England sailors?

Just to throw in my 2 cents worth..... there is a cove off of Logan Airport, in East Boston, called Jeffries Point, which has a Yacht Club called Jeffries Point Yacht Club, and it is a 'General Anchorage', which means you can anchor there for FREE.

You would be within a golf balls' range of that International Airport and have immediate access to open water. And, you would be located in Boston Harbor, which has many attributes.

However, as Hellosailor astutely noted, there would be an issue with soot... :-(

Re: New England sailors?

My current marina, Zahniser's Yachting Center, in Solomons, Maryland, is a beautiful marina. The absolutely only drawback is the Naval air base across the river which does some pretty noisy exercises on a regular basis. So noisy you just have to stop any conversation you are having until the jets pass over. So the airport noise probably won't be too much of a concern. The soot, however, is concerning to me and I will be sure to ask about that before reserving a slip. Gonna close on the boat in a couple days!!!
(BTW, our 1988 Pacific Seacraft Crealock 31 is for sale (located in Solomons, Md). Have a couple of interested parties but PM me if anyone else is interested).

The secret to sailing is good judgment. Good judgment comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgment.

Re: New England sailors?

I was at Greenwich Bay Marina for 8 years - 10 years ago(since taken over by Brewers) and the soot was quite noticeable. I have to assume that most others in that area have the same problem. The jets pass almost directly over it. Also the train runs a couple hundred yards away although not quite as loud once you get used to it

I have been in the Wickford Marina for the last 10 years and every winter it is full (only 60 boats) in the water including mine. Very few bother with circulators and the owner even says in his newsletter every year that he will rent you one if you want but basically - don't bother. There has never been a damage problem in the 15+ years of his operation. It's only a marina not a 'boatyard' so he has no interest in creating damage for his profit because he has no repair crew.

Re: New England sailors?

So it's real hard to get away for the plane flying overhead in RI. The state is so small that depending on the wind direction and the flight patterns, you are bound to have to deal with it. There is no getting away from it. Now I am in Bullock Cove, not that far from the airport as the planes fly, 20 minutes by car, and the notion that the planes are making boats dirty is a real possibility I had not considered before now. The black streaking you see on the sides of almost every boat. Light shines over Marblehead!
