One contrast that many on here sound like they would appreciate is the near total lack of crime to worry about. Many Mainers leave their boats unlocked, year round, whether on the mooring or ashore--same as their homes and cars. There is no such thing as locking your dinghy at the dinghy dock. But of course the big attraction is the gorgeous scenery, interesting exploration on a complicated coastline, quaint little villages, lobsters, blueberry pie, ice cold water all around, and general lack of hurricanes. For the more adventurous there is New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and even Labrador. Try it, you might like it.
I am in Maine now. I left the Caribbean in February and have been slowly make our way up the east coast. It has been beautiful here. (I used to live here). The weather gas been great too.
