    That's still too far north, though I'd not be surprised if there really
    was another "Cape Cod" but for the one near Boston, MA how about we use
    Cape Cod------------------------42d 10.0'N   70d 00.0'W
    That's a point northeast of the tip of the Cape with a straight
    shot to Boston Harbor (assuming these Web mapping services are
    anything near accurate).
