Wow, that is our old stomping grounds back when we had our runabouts. Make sure to go to Newick's across the river for lobster rolls and chowdah if you are able to get a ride! Beautiful area! Just be careful of the tides and currents near the power plant when heading in and out of the bay. I remember being able to put our ski boat on plane there, surfing the waves, without going anywhere.

The Piscataqua River is a real challenge , I defer to a more experienced friend to get me out of here. Been to Newicks, cool place, good food. Heading to South Portland (southport marine) Sat. I think. Home base till Oct. ?

After the 11th or so home base will be Southport Marine, the end of D dock. Been enjoying some Zafra whilst working on the boat https://www.rumratings.com/brands/10...ter-reserve-21

Cancelled all boat launches today, too dang windy. The Piscataqua River is angry today. Big ol' whitecaps out there.

Used to do a lot of diving and windsurfing off the common and fort foster. Planing on spending a week or so in August on a mooring there. Need to lock the props from turning when anchored in the current there.

First run of year is always something for those who aren't where they can boat year round. Hopefully it's the first of many. We've always boated year round, even when we lived in a cold climate. On the lake, our big moment was the first time we could get out without all the enclosure up and without winter coats.
