I kayaked a lot of those areas for the first time last year and really got an appreciation for the Essex/Crane's system. The kayak only lacked one thing, and that was a little altitude to see ahead some. I'm hoping the boat will give me a bit of an edge and a little longer time with the tides.
Well, I'm on the Downeaster Alexa, and I'm cruisin' through Block Island Sound.
I have chartered a course for the Vineyard, but tonight I am Nantucket bound.
