I'll second something in or near Boston. I like Rainsford Island.

third for Boston

Rainsford is nice. Worlds end if someone gets over there early and gets one of the moorings.

Great idea, SBL. I thnk you should focus on Narragansett Bay area (since you are there) and put a stake in the ground. Otherwise, the NE coast is too big. Let others do a Boston or LI Sound get together.

I would go if I could on gameday. I can never comitt in advance. Between work and spouse induced boat guests, my boating schedule is not always my own.

Ideas:

Newport moorings
Connanicut Marina moorings
Dutch Harbor rafting
Bristol Harbor
Potters Cove
Goddard beach in Greenwich
Wickford cove

I'd be interested if it's in August or September. Not sure if I'll go that far north this year, but it would be a reason to.

Understood, but that's not a firm stake. If you want to pull this off, float a date and place and jazz up the plan. Place to go ashore, overnight, lunch, dinner?

Don't take my word for it, but I suspect the Bay will be a bigger draw. I have no idea of the status/clearance of the RT 24 bridge lately. Can you get out of the top of the river, over to Bristol, or Potters or Greenwich?

Just ideas from me, my odds of making it aren't excellent, so take the advice for what it is worth.

Boston Harbor Islands/Peddocks Island

Peddocks Island in the Boston Harbor Island Archipelago has about 20 deepwater moorings that can be reserved for a few $. Although, not especially close to anything except Hull, MA, it is a nice area and an ideal area for a raft up in the Massachusetts area that could be a an easy day sail from places in Buzzards Bay, P-town, or as far north as Rockport/Gloucester, MA.

It is also not in Boston Harbor per se, which I find a pain-in-the-butt to sail in during a nice summer w/e.

Cuttyhunk, while nice sounding, is a LONG sail for me, and unless I left at 7AM in the morning, had good wind, and the currents through the canal we at a favorable time, it would take me 2 days to get there.

I believe last year the only moorings at Peddocks were private. The ones formerly operated by Constitution Marina were all pulled out two winters ago due to a dispute with the city. There is some other company now operating moorings (the name eludes me at the moment) but there aren't as many of them as there used to be, and I don't know where they are.

no sakkonet river doesn't really have places to go on shore really other then fogland beach and ect. the bridge is a go don't worry about it. there isn't any closures as of now and the mast high i wanna say it 65 ft or 75 something like that. bristol would be a stretch but i could probally do that with my motor boat. my 14' motor boat. but i would only be able to stay a few hours before i had to start my trip back. but that would be a bad idea if the wind kickd up i would be screwed.
