Thanks for the reply. My first plan was to go down around the battery, now I think I will go back to that plan. I make 3 trips (usually by car) every summer to stay near Catskill NY with friends. I can plan my cruise as late as september. I would like to use the motor as little as possible (or not at all!). Do you think September will give me better winds upriver? Do any really great marinas come to mind?
I''m guessing 2 days from the Battery to Caskill. Is this realistic considering light winds and current?
It''s going to be a long winter
Thanks again for your reply!
