I am in the process of purchasing
a wooden H28 which is currently berthed in Southport, CT. I live in western, MA - just under 2 hours to bridgeport, 2:40 to Stonington, 2:40 to many spots on narragansett bay, 3 hours to new bedford, etc. I hope to ultimately end up in eastern maine
as my wife and I get closer to retired, but need an easier port to sail out of for the next few years. I'm wondering what people think of various harbors, marinas
, etc. and what the availiblity of space is there. Most of our sailing will be weekend in spring/fall and a few days at a time in summer. My concerns are: 1- easiest possible drive, 2- security
for boat, 3- most interesting sailing, 4- cost as modest as possible. I'll probably have it hauled to my home/shop for the winter, so storage
isn't as important.
