Good afternoon,
After YEARS of chartering boats in the BVI decided to "pull the trigger":D:D
Hope to close soon on a 1981 Pearson 35. :):):):):)
Our "camp" in retirement.
Plan to just do some safe "coastal cruising"..Picking our days.
I'll have plenty of questions regarding how to get our gamp backhome to Maine from the mid-Atlantic region.
Regards
Bill and Jean

Bill,

Welcome to the asylum. Where in Maine are you? I wouldn't necessarily call us safe. Rocks, ledges, fog, lobster buoys and all that junk that pours out of the Kennebeck Don't forget the 50 degree water.

Hi Don,
I'm n the mid maine region (inland)
If things work right we will be in the Belfast area for the 2014 season.
Sailed there a bit.. But have extensive powerboat cruising in the area.

I'll keep you all posted of the boat purchase
Regards
Bill

Belfast, I was staring at you from Turtle Head Cove last year. We sail from Ki'try to Buck's Harbor (so far) and are hoping to expand a little this summer. Trailering allows us 70 knots DUP (dead up wind) to new haunts. We can get from Biddeford to Camden in about 2 1/2 hours. This year, we hope to put in at Rockland because the parking is so much better than Camden. We'll spend a week on the water, dodging rocks, ledges and lobstah buoys, and maybe even wander around in the fog. Other than that, we play in Muscongus Bay, Casco Bay, Sheepscot Bay, Damariscove Is, Seguin Is. and the like. Gotta love it! We're chartering in BVI this spring so any tips will be appreciated!

Don
