Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Hummm. This got me thinking (never a good thing). I've got my boat on the Delaware. I could go up the Hudson to the lakes and then turn East, go down the St Lawrence and so forth.

Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Halifax is a wonderful place. Love it. Plan to be there on Brusters week. Halagonians are a hoot and a damn nice crowd.

But there is a fatal flaw with this idea of over wintering in Halifax. ...

Re: Canadian Maritimes, winter 2015

Once you get East of Halifax options get real thin real fast.

Re: Tropical Storm Gonzalo... Ooops!

No, can't recall which online store I bought it from. Doing a refit I've bought a ton of stuff.
