Glad to be aboard! I am a semi-retired physician who has been sailing for 35 years, living aboard
and cruising on a Shannon 38 ketch
for five years. I am making the difficulty transition to motor
cruising but very excited about learning
new skills. My wife and I have a home on Westport Island, ME about an hour north of Portland
where we plan to cruise
coast in our Mainship 34 Hardtop during the summer. I am experienced in the medical
aspects of diving
, wilderness activities and cruising and would be pleased to share my knowledge.
My Mainship, Grace, is in a yard on the southeast shore of the Chesapeake being outfitted with new electronics
, etc. I am looking at the option of taking her to Maine
on her bottom versus on a truck. My time is somewhat limited and with the price
the costs are comparable. Can someone give me the distance in nautical miles via the ICW
from the mouth of the Chesapeake to Portland
, ME? Your assistance would be much appreciated.
