Re: Hudson River- Mast unstepping

I drove to Castleton last fall to check out their crane. Should be no problem for you. I plan on stepping my 47' keel-stepped mast there soon, and will do it alone. I talked to a guy who had just unstepped his mast, and he said the crane, which is electric and controlded via a switch box on a very long cord, moves very slowly and you can be on the boat manoevering the mast while you hold the control box in one hand. He made it sound slow, but easy.
Know any good no-frills marinas in the mid- to lower Hudson?
