After a fly-by of the Wequasset Inn (a great waterside dining option) and Ryders Cove Marina (great launch ramp), Case and Richardson pause to discuss the “new” inlet in the barrier beach created by a storm some 7 years ago. The channel is marked by the harbormaster, but can be confusing and even dangerous for novice and visiting boaters to navigate, especially when a sea is running.

Case and Richardson also check out the local seal herd and the remaining cottages on North Beach before shooting across the harbor to Aunt Lydia’s Cove and the Chatham Fish Pier.

By the end of the trip, you’ll no doubt want to trailer your boat to Pleasant Bay to sample the pleasures of this aptly named body of water on Cape Cod!
