South Portland Maine to Newington New Hampshire...7 hours

Brought the boat from South Port Marine (summer ) to Greatbay Marine
(Winter hibernation )

Caught the fog after 5 1/2 hours of outstanding weather yesterday. Waited on the Memorial bridge (Piscataqua river) to open for 30 minutes. That river is interesting in the fog Did about 9 knots at 1800 rpm's the whole trip.

Thanks. The fog is definitely better than last night. But the forecast is still "patchy fog and visibility at 1-3nm".

Hey, I'll take it. Last night we were close to visibility of maybe a few hundred yards. Winds are pretty light now too but they'll be 15-20knots in a few hours... Im leaving at 9am and hope to reach Boston by 3pm. I generally cruise in the 10-12 knot range.

Good, thanks. I left under dense fog and through the Canal. I couldn't even see the bridges as I was going under them. It then cleared up a bit near Plymouth and visibility was decent the rest of the trip. Seas were calm too.

I reached Boston in 5 hours or so. Later that afternoon the winds were really howling! Glad I left early....

Next weekend looks really nice. I'm not hauling until the first week of November.
