While on our way to Rockport Russ called the harbor and reserved a ball. Once we got into the harbor we hailed them to get instructions. After a little bit of conversation they said, "You failed to mention you were a catamaran."
"We're small. We only have a 16 foot beam."
"That still makes a big difference."
We've never had anyone complain about that before. They put us on a moored platform, which I thought was nifty. But with bad weather coming I grew concerned that we'd pull out or damage the thing, largely because of that comment. We did a quick assess of the weather and absolutely everything changed. It looked like we might have anywhere from a couple of days to a week and, while cute, I wasn't sure we wanted to spend a whole lotta time there.

While a soft rain was coming the winds remained calm. The water went from gentle rollers to silky flat as we traveled. The farther north we went the better it got.

which we toured.
Another quick phone call to the yacht club across the way on the Maine side, in Kittery. Yep they had space. So we moved.

|Even with cloudy skies the water was fabulous.|
