Hi everyone...I'm new to the forum (and forums
like this in general) so here goes. My dad and I and our "crew" are planning a trip from Narragansett bay (let's just call it Newport
for ease of conversation) to Beaufort
, NC. He has sailed parts
of this trip before but this time we are taking our 38' trawler
and it will be my first trip down the coast. We can't leave until October at the earliest, and my big question (and his) is making the coast of Jersey at this time of year in a power boat
rather than a sailboat (also without running at night). We are hoping to do it in 2 segments with the first being from Newport
to Cape May, then we have to find a marina to leave it for a couple weeks and return home, then come back and pick up where we left off. Any recommendations would be appreciated!
