Welcome any replies.
Yup, the $37.50 is good for the full season, but you could also purchase the "3 day" at $23.50 if that would suit your needs. You'd have to choose the three consecutive days in advance, however.
Public water is just that and any club controlled water is rare and will be well marked. Private land is often open too and if it's not it is usually "posted" .
Woodriver....The Mass marine license is not only good in Mass and RI but in CT and NH as well. I'm not sure how reciprocal the Maine license is but the one that I bought last year was all of a dollar
