More snow in Boston, so I guess those photographs haven't changed very much.


Has Spring even started to show it's face?

In a word... no.

We seem to be making up for last year. The snow and cold aren't much of a problem but the wind has been shoving my boat sideways at the dock for three days now. I need the Lee cloth up just to watch TV.

It doesn't seem like summer will ever get here with the two feet of new snow we now have.

I can't wait to head south

Yep, I called Boston & NY today, both were suffering pretty bad weather, still it's Easter in 3-4 weeks and Spring properly will have arrived! :-)

Nice steady force 4's and after work sailing with lighter evenings!

Noted this post here, but didn't see any recommendations for actual liveaboard marinas in Rhode Island/Fall River/New Bedford/Plymouth/Scituate. Specifically during winter. My partner and I are looking for a liveaboard boatyard or marina for this winter, but we are south of the canal in Buzzards Bay and are looking more in this area. Our boat still has work to be done and we're not sure about traveling all the way up to Boston at this point.

Does anyone have any specific marinas to recommend farther south?

We're considering Onset Bay Marina in Wareham, which seems reasonably priced and would allow us to stay there, but we'd have the problems Smitty mentions here (Moved To Our Winter Home « s/v Smitty) with water and waste, and they also don't keep the dock shoveled in the winter. Thanks a lot for any ideas.
