I've done part of your trip (Mattapoisset to NYC). Day one expect to go from Mattapoisset to Stonington CT. Day two expect to pick a harbor a bit north of NYC. Day three try to time your passage through Hell Gate with the tide as the current can exceed 4 knots. This year's issue of Eldridge tide tables will help immensely with the timing. Failing that, stay as far to one side of the channel as possible and allow for a long time to get through.

Hey guys, thanks again for all your replies. Would this bus be your regular greyhound bus? I think a cab from New Bedford should be quite affordable I see the two cities are not that far.

I purchased a Alberg 37 sloop ridded (cutter converted) named Rodeo and has been in your area for the last 25yrs. Will bring her back to Toronto and from here will head south before the end of the fall.

Happy easter to everyone and once again thanks for all the replies

The bus you'd want to take is DATCO bus to New Bedford, from South Station, rather than the Greyhound. A cab is going to be pretty expensive, since Boston to Mattapoisett is over 60 miles. Another option might be the Super Shuttle.

Do you know when you're going to be flying in. I live near Boston and head down to the South Coast area fairly regularly.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Sailing dog, once again thanks for the info. I'll look into the DATCO bus from south station. As for the cab I was referring to taking one from New Bedford and not from Boston.
I work for a Canadian airline and we fly to boston 6x a day so coming there is not a big deal for me. I was there this past weekend and will be going again on tuesday the 13th for 2 or 3 days.
Thanks for your ride offer and perhaps if you're going there at the same time we can arrange for something. You're more than welcome to come look at her when I'm there.
I'll check the forum regularly in the next few days. Take care

Gabe

Cab

Checker Cab from Gifford St. boat ramp in New Bedford to town dock in Mattapoiset cost me 25$, last Friday. Probably a little cheaper from bus station.
