Re: NY to Penobscot Bay--fall or spring?
We often store in Maine for the winter at the end of our fall cruise. We love the trip up, hate the trip back in the spring.
Fall: Dry, less (hardly any) fog, water still "warm" (this is relative), less rain, less drizzle, beautiful fall colors, etc. We take our time and cruise.
Spring: Rain, drizzle, cold even on a warm day as the wind blows off across the cold water, fog, etc. We wait for a weather window and do long days or dead head if we can stand the cold (like ripping off a bandaid).
Besides, IMHO, storage, and any service required are lower cost in Maine and of higher quality than MA, and I suspect NY as well but don't have direct experience there. YMMV.
