Re: Eastern Long Island
The Shelter Island area is great. We've circled it a couple of times, stopping off a different spots for the night. Greenport is a nice town with good restaurants and a classic marine store (Preston's) that is fun to explore. The new town marina is a good place to spend the night. You can also get a mooring in Deering Harbor across the way and take the ferry to Greenport. Coecle's Harbor on the east side of the Island is a popular spot to drop the hook (with good reason). A narrow channel in so watch the charts carefully. Haven't been to Sag Harbor in quite a number of years, so can't comment on the current situation there.
