Well, I'm prejudiced in favor of Maine too. But one thing I should add; if you plan to spend much time in marinas
, in New England
there are far fewer slips that will fit a cat.
That's not intended as any kind of judgement against cats! Just that, for whatever reason, more slips up here are sized for monos.
Of course that's no problem if you plan to anchor
or take a mooring
most of the time, which is my preference anyway. And there ARE places with wide slips, face docks or piers. Just nowhere near as many.
