Hello from Narraganset Bay

Hi there. I'm new to these forums (this is the first one I've ever joined) so here goes. My dad and I have a 38' trawler and are looking to take her down the coast. We are local to Narragansett Bay, specifically Dighton, MA at the moment but have also docked in Providence, RI and surrounding areas. He has sailed up and down the coast as well, but we're investing all of our time (and $s) now into this pretty teak trimmed Trader named the Witch of Endor or just simply "The Witch" as we call her. I missed this note at first about the meet and greet so I already posted a question to the forum on travel plans. If anyone has any advice and wants to reach out it will always be appreciated. Cheers,
Nicole

Re: Hello from Narraganset Bay

Welcome, Nicole,

This is mostly a sailing forum, but of course, your welcome to ask questions. If you are particularly interested in trawlers, you may want to also join our sister forum, which focusses on trawlers.

Re: Hello from Narraganset Bay

Thanks and to add to that also, I'm still definitely interested in any information regarding traveling down the coast...I think much of the information people may have in regards to weather, time of year, distances, marinas, anchorages, etc are synonymous for motor or sail bound boaters, and that's the kind of stuff I'd love to hear about.

Howdy Nicole, and Welcome Aboard CF!

Nice intro.

I hope you enjoy your time on the forums (both Cruisers and Trawlers).

You mention the name of your boat "Witch of Endor." I have looked at Marine Traders online, and your boat's name rings a bell, as I recall it was a dark hull or trim or canvas (green?), but it could have been another boat by the same name. I can imagine some fun things you could do with a name like that.

Since you are new to this forum, let me mention a few things you might miss but that could help you more enjoy your time here:

There is an amazing amount of shared knowledge found in the thousands of threads on this forum. If one has a common question, the answers are usually there, often with different possible solutions. The trick is finding those threads and answers as they can be "lost" in the many threads, which are often not titled well.

Here are my favorite Tips for newcomers to this forum:

WIKI
Take a look at the Cruising WIKI that is found via the tab up on the top menu bar of the forum. It has a LOT of information in it you might find fun, interesting, or helpful.
____________

Looking for Quick Answers?

This is the best and fastest method I have found to the answers I seek here.
Since you are relatively new to the forum, here is my favorite friendly forum search tip: Look at the menu bar on the forum pages for the drop down "Search" menu. Click on that to drop down a list of search functions. From that drop down menu select the GOOGLE CUSTOM search feature (the second box down) and then enter several different descriptive or key terms for your topic of interest. That will do a Custom google search of ONLY this site and it is likely to find answers to your questions or results for you. Note: this is VERY different from using the regular forum search box or field (which I never use because of poor search results). Also note, this is NOT found if you use the CF mobile app. It IS found if you use a web browser such as Safari, IE, Firefox, etc.

Note: The ordinary "search" field on this forum has yielded less helpful results for me when I perform searches. That is why I prefer and suggest the use of the alternative "Google Custom Search" instead. I see a very clear and big difference and find the Google Custom Search much easier for scanning (with my eyes) threads for relevant comments and information.

I am confident if you spend some time trying different search terms (key words) using this method, you will find much advice and many tips.
