Fun "boat delivery"

Hi all

Going down to Salem MA in two weeks to help my buddy bring his new to him Endevour 37 back up NE to Saint Andrews NB. Here's the tentative schedule (yes, we do not have to be home in any set number of days and so all the normal caveats about weather days and fix it days etc etc.

1 - SLM to PRTSMTH NH - 40.6
2 - PRTSMTH NH to BOOTHBAY - 69.3
3 - BOOTHBAY to RCKLND - 39.5
4 - RCKLND to NE HRBR - 40.3
5 - NE HRBR to ST AND - 90.1 nm
5a - NE HRBR - HEAD HRBR (alt for weather) - 78.7 NM
5b - NE HRBR to CTLR (alt for weather) - 55.2 nm
5c - NE HRBR to MSTK IL (alt for weather) - 36.1 nm

I have done all of the route before and most of it ten times. Any glaring errors?

Thanks

Rik

Rik,

Great plan. The wind turned SW today on Cape Cod after a week of nasty NE, clouds, and drizzle. Hoping for prevailing SW'ers on your trip way down east!

The only comment that I would have is that if you do leg 5, it can be a bit hard to time the tide both with the important area being at the end of a long day and the distance that you need to travel where the direction of current really matters. It is certainly doable and as you are from that area I would guess you are very familiar with it. I have almost always stopped in Cutler or some place like that so that I am less likely to run into a foul tide right at the end. If you are trying to keep the delivery time down, there are a lot of other legs that could be slightly modified to cut out a day. For example, going from Portsmouth to somewhere near Rockland is certainly doable on most days. With good weather and good timing, it will certainly work as you have laid it out.

Have fun.

I have six or seven places I've been where we can go into between NE Harbour and Saint Andrews - Dave "thinks" he wants to do NE H to St And, me, I think Cutler at best and maybe Mistake Isl or Cow yard or . . .

Thanks
