Why Maine? Never been there but thinking about it next summer to escape the Louisiana heat.

I lived in Portland, ME for two years. Moved to the Boston area last year but still keep my boat in Maine. It's a beautiful area with a magnificent coastline. The good cruising is mainly north of Portland from Casco Bay up to Penobscot Bay (and further on to Canada if you so desire). There are endless islands, rivers and coves to explore, you can cruise from Portland to Acadia National Park without having to sail overnight, there are lots of harbors and secluded anchorages. My sailing so far has all been in Casco Bay but I'm planning to sail up to Penobscot Bay next summer (my parents live up there).

Here's an old article from the NY Times: http://www.nytimes.com/1983/09/18/tr...l?pagewanted=1

If you are thinking of cruising the Maine coast, this is an indispensable resource:
