Re: Maine cruising question

I don't quite think that cruising along the coast of Maine means having to rely primarily on moorings. Now I am thinking of a small yacht, nothing quite so large as 47 feet, but having said that I have rarely had troouble laying to my own gear, even in season. As an added benefit it's often possible to sit on a vacant mooring for a period of time without encountering a financil hit, but of course one must remain alert to move if it becomes necessary. I'd say just wander in and enjoy.

Good luck and good sailing.

I have a persistent dream of sailing around Newfoundland but won't be able to get to that for at least several years. . . .

I did a circumnav of Newfoundland (with side trip over to Labrador) in 2010 and it was one of the BEST CRUISES I have ever done. The newfoundland people are genuinely great with boaters and very generous with fish and moose meat. They are definitely not greedy for dockage fees (most were either free or $2 per day ($40 per year)). What else can I say !
