The Pulpit

MAINE

Launch: Bath Public Boat Ramp

Nearby campsites: Camden Hills State Park is about 50 miles northeast. Meadowland is a private campground in Phippsburg, just five miles from Bath. There are many nice Bed & Breakfasts in Bath.

Comments: We had our Gathering at Kennebec Tavern and Marina in Bath. This is a great spot to begin 'coasting' Maine since you have all the Kennebec River to explore, and at the mouth of the river, the Atlantic coast.

DOWN EAST

----\-oWe cruised along the Maine coast for thirty-seven days, from mid-August to late September. We traveled a total of 862 nautical miles and used the engines for 112 hours. We launched and pulled out at Bath, and cruised a short distance to the west and as far east as Schoodic Point. The summer was hot and dry, with little rain or fog.

----\-oThe coast of Maine, in good weather, is one of the finest cruising grounds anywhere. There are numerous anchorages, interesting towns, nice folks, and incredible variety. On the downside, there can be fog, the tides are high and the currents strong, and some of the natives are persnickety.

----\-oWe had a marvelous cruise. Our C-Dory is the perfect boat -- you can explore the backwaters and handle the sea swells equally well.
