From my sailing on the LI sound you would really have to be moving to go from Northport harbor to Oyster Bay in 2 to 3 hours unless the current was perfect and that has to be the shortest trip you could make

Being compleatly serious most of the harbors on the LI side take 1 hour to leave or enter which will use up 2 hours a day before you even start sailing

Trust me on this as MY wife is a 3 hour sailor which pretty much means the boat does NOT leave the Northport area with her onboard


Northport to (Port Jefferson / Rocky Point / Mount Sinai Area) is 16 miles once your outside the harbor which would be again real hard to make happen in under 3 hours


And your really going to have to watch the WEATHER trends as 2008 set and all time thunder storm record it was a summer of once in a lifetime events about once a week

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat
