Re: east coast provisioning stops

Well for those transiting the Hudson River there is a decent anchoring spot in Beacon, NY. Beacon Sloop club lets you use there dingy dock, but no services such as water/fuel I don't think the club house even has water, it uses a composting toilet. Train station right there, express trains to the City. There is a Key Foods (small local grocery that has excellent selection) that is about a mile walk. Lots of restaurants, excellent Contemporary Art Museum (The Dia) and coffee houses. Heck if you give me a PM a couple of days or so before I will try to give a ride to the Key Foods, or to Waly-Mart/Home Depot/Lowe's/Sam's Club/Big Groceries/Shopping Mall etc. Across the River is Newburgh, no anchoring, very loud docks but good restaurants; any provisioning will be a cab ride.
