The one word of caution.... Gloucester harbor master and the coasties do NOT like performance boats so expect to be stopped. Especially as you go out of the restaraunts. There are a quite a few good places to eat right on the water. The studio and back in that area (Rocky Neck) have a bunch of good places to drop in for a bite. You can also tie up to the side of the Gloster House (aka The GLOHOE) and get some eats. DO NOT TIE UP TO THE DOCKS THERE!!! They are for the fishermen ONLY. Aparenly our tax dollars going to pay for the dock and thier supsidies does not allow us to use them!! But hey I am not bitter or anything
From there Next stop is Manchester. One of the best harbors on the east coats but not much to do in there.
Next stop from there is Beverly then Salem. Salem has a floating resturant/bar in the middle called the Rockmore. You can also tie up to designated mornings and get a ride in to town on the launch and hit the town of Salem. Fun place and lots of KILLER resturants of all price ranges.
Then I would say next stop is Boston. Again expect to get pulled over on the way into the harbor and out as well. From there we ussually go in to Tavern on the water. Fun place ussually not a problem with docking up and it is fun.
Down in Quincy you have Marina Bay. Marina bay has a ton of places to eat and have a few cold ones as well. Can be hard to find a place to dock but is worth the look

Hope that gives ya a few places to check out. If you want to we can get together out at Cranes and run up the coast. One place that I have never boated to so I do not know what the deal is was Rockport. Rockport is a dry town however so why bother going Seriously again lots of good eats and bunch of small shops and artist stuff if that floats your boat I am sure there are places to tie up.

Last few time that I have been in Boston Harbor was two years ago (last year my boat was in the water for any length of time). That was of course closer to 9/11 and so on. There were also two yahoos that were going out of Marina Bay drunk on a regular basis from what they told me and they were getting complaints. So they seemed to target us all. No big deal they were cool about it for the most part. When they wanted to tie up and it was to rough and I said no they understood. They came along side and grabbed the paperwork that they needed and then pulled away, when they were done they dropped it back off.
