For the best in the Mt. Dessert through Penobscot Bay, I'd spend a couple days sailing and overnighting through the Merchant Islands and the Fox Island Thoroughfare. Many anchorages to pick from and a few rental mooring options. Good in any wind. (Anchorage off Hells Half Acre. Moorings in the Thoroughfare: Browns Boatyard in North Haven, Perry Creek has private moorings but they are used by transient boats).So if you had 10 days to sail from Mt. Dessert Island to Portsmouth, NH, where would you go? Best anchorages? Best moorings? Best sight seeing?
