Re: Help! My first boat purchase!

Hello All, sorry been travelin' while. Sailed down to Baltimore and here 'til i return to the Hudson shortly!
To Sloss321, whereabouts in the Hudson? There are several marinas there. Was at Lincoln Harbor for the winter and experienced terrible wakes and silted in though i was docked in a '40 ft because of the draft on the Newport. Currently docked in Newport Marina, rate was less than Lincoln and actually am in the right size slip, but the wakes are no better due to the commercial ferries. But the marina has a lively liveaboard crowd and friendlier staff with easy commute to the Path and larger selection of supermarkets, retails, restaurants...Liberty Landing is calmer but no real amenities to retail, etc...Hope this helps, let me know and so sorry for the non-response but out sailing and lovin' every bit of it...
