Re: BoatUS membership worth it?

Boat U.S. has always seemed worth it to me. Their member publication/magazine is well written. The discount at West Marine help takes some of the sting out. I get my boat insurance through them...

Re: Best embarkation point for my wife and son

You know what would be nice if you make Block Island in good time? Instead of picking them up back down in CT, sail over to Cuttyhunk. Have them take the little Cuttyhunk ferry out from New Bedford...

Re: Day from Hell? Or learning experience

Re: Just bought our first sailboat

It sounds like you are getting a mooring from the city instead of a private place. I do the same and bought my own tackle. As you may know Gifford Street moorings are getting moved around and...
