Quincy, Massachusetts

When I bought the Argo she was tied up in Captian’s Cove Marina in Quincy, Massachusetts. I picked her up on a Saturday morning and took the day to prep for departure. I needed four 5-gallon gas cans and 40 gallons of gas. So I walked up to the Advance Auto Parts store and purchased them.

The marina does not have gas pumps so I took the loading cart and walked around the corner to a small gas station called Sprague Energy, filled the cans, and took them back to the boat. I filled my 20-gallon gas tank on my sailboat then walked back up to the gas station and refilled the gas cans, took them back to the boat, and strapped them in.

After the gas ordeal, I walked down to Wendy’s to get a quick bite to eat. Not the best food but I was tired of walking. After eating on my walk back I stopped at CVS and bought some basic supplies like batteries, a first aid kit, and some basic food supplies.
