Look on the bright side..you won't need a dinghy. You can walk ashore on snowshoes... ;-)

That's what we used to say about Cape Porpoise.

Also, it's a lot less expensive here - not counting the couple you can easily bum off a lobsterman. I just returned to Maine from Florida on my boat and saw the lobster prices all along the coast. It was pretty shocking...
Frenchboro, Long Island was one of my most memorable stops. I anchored in the cove on the NE side and walked over through the woods to Frenchboro where I ate one of those lobsters. The best.

sailingdog Cam-

I steer around the largest concentrations... so I only have to dodge a million. But, I can understand that at your age... seeing the buoys can be tough.

camaraderie Jeff...you are right about the taste...but I found that I can buy MAINE lobsters in NY grocery stores cheaper than in Maine!! Now if you can throw a few bills at a lobster boat guy...that is a fresh and tasty BARGAIN!

Dawg...right...so we're back to a billion eh?

Umm... you don't have to dodge them all.. just the ones in your way....
06-08-2007 12:48 PM
JeffreySiegel There certainly are plenty of pots and you need to be careful in some areas. But then again, some say the taste and cost of the lobster you get while here is worth it...

labatt Cam -

If you're going to correct someone you should make sure you do your research first. There's OVER a quadrillion of those damnable pots! I heard they are going to stop building bridges and just give out more permits to put pots in - you'll just drive your car across them. It seems like they are already successfully testing this out in various places.
