Some photos from the trip offshore Gulf of Maine. Below freezing for the first 24+ hours. I got some good Cape Cod Canal photos and coming up through Newport at midnight with all the bridges lit up. Almost impossible to pick up which light is a can or nun and which light is on the bridge, land or whatever. The ipad with Navionics was a GREAT help. We had to go to Portsmouth and the fog fell on us just after we cleared the Jamestown Bridge. In the dark, in the fog.

I hadn't driven a boat since 2011. But in the 90's up in Maine we did everything with paper and a DR plot. It all came back quickly. Myself and the youngest son had a nice, albeit cold and fast trip to Rhode Island. About 40 hours except for a few hour nap at Smuttynose.

File comment: He went to stbd, we gunned it. I heard him leaving the dock on Isleboro. First view we had was his bow coming out of the fog. This was before I figured out the AIS. Helm unit wasn't displaying.

File comment: Ya. How many feet is that vis? I should have left the radar on the backstay. Thankful once I figured out AIS receiver.
