Hi tankvictorian

I lived in New Brunswick as a kid. I would advise you watch out for 3 foot snow storms, and zero degree temperatures. That's what I recall about the northeast.

Re: Maine sailing community

If you're not familiar with how to prepare a boat to liveaboard over the winter, don't just try to figure it out. Trial and error could cost you. Ask questions. Tenting, slip resistance, access, interior condensation, mildew, heating alternatives, insulation, frozen water lines, power outages, etc. All discussed here before. All the best.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.

Re: Maine sailing community

Check out the ActiveCaptain website. In addition to one of the nicest browser-based chart displays I've seen, it's full of marina and anchorage reviews. BTW The folks who run it are not too far away from you (Castine).
