Re: Cuttyhunk and Martha's Vineyard and Covid-19
If things go well, I expect to see something that resembles a season near Jul 1 around here. Most boats are either already in the water or on the hard being heavily prepped. Not seeing many take a season pass, but I'm sure there will be an exception or two. I suspect our Canadian neighbor will pass.
Personally, I can't imagine taking a pass on the season, just because the towns are not accepting transients. I enjoy cruising the coast as much as the next guy, but my boat is far more than a vehicle to get to dinner on Sat night.
I bet I sail the Bay more than usual, anchor out and BBQ more. I never day sail, I always anchor out. This year may be different. Perhaps there will be a tad more time at the slip, but it's still totally worth it for me to have the boat in the water and staying aboard.
I do not think the seasonal house rentals are coming back in strength all summer. Maybe last minute. Maybe. In RI (MA too I believe), out of state renters are still subject to 14 quarantine. They're the majority of the crowds in some towns. It will be quiet. Maybe the upside is it will be easier to distance.
