Huh? We've only gone in early July. Perfect during the day, actually cool at night.
Massive thunderstorms every afternoon pop up out of the pea soup fog.
We certainly saw fog, but never all day. Wait it out, if one prefers. Also saw thunderstorms, maybe one or two over two weeks each time. Nothing out of the ordinary for New England.
There are billions of lobster pots.
Yes, there certainly are. A shaft cutter is a good idea, but I've never wrapped one. Once, at the southwestern entrance to Eggamoggon Reach, I was motoring and they were so thick, I had to drop to neutral and drift out.
Every anchorage is 50' deep.
Not every, but certainly plan enough rode for 30ft min. If you can carry enough rode for 50ft, options are unlimited.
Moorings are $$$$.
We mostly anchored last summer, but mooring fees were not extraordinary, when we picked one up in Camden and Bucks Harbor. 40ish, iirc.
Uncharted rocks are EVERYWHERE.
Yes, but I've never had an issue, when staying within ATNs. If you're gunkholing, there is a ton of published local knowledge available.
Mosquitoes by the trillions are bigger than drones.
I broke out all the screening for our cockpit enclosure, to prepare for this event. Never used it once. Maybe it's the specific time we've gone, but bugs were a non-event on the water. Hiking deep in the woods may be a different matter.
Water temps are barely above freezing.
More accurately, mid 50s. Swimming is out. More importantly, one should be sure they have cold water survival capabilities (i.e. a liferaft). God forbid, you were waiting for rescue in a remote area, exposed to the water. The Orange pfd would simply be for identifying the body during recovery.
Not for whimps. I think you're just trying to keep it to yourself.
