Boston harbor islands moorings

Supposedly the moorings are coming back this year. We sail out of Hingham and liked the moorings for a lazy day on the water. At the end of last season a few were back in.

third for Boston

Rainsford is nice. Worlds end if someone gets over there early and gets one of the moorings.

We bought our second boat in December 2010

We used Peter Hunt (http://www.huntmarinesurvey.com/index.html) and were very satisfied. The guy knows boats; he used to be part of the build team for Cape Dory.

Here (http://tbi-usa.com/zcart/)is what the guy on my dock has.

Under $400. If it works I will likely get one.
