Re: Best Route from Mahattan to LI Sound

Glad to hear that your trip to the Sound went well.
I grew up in Sea Cliff on Hempstead Harbor and I know the Brewer's yard there in Glen Cove. If you had taken a transient mooring with the Sea Cliff YC you could have used their pool. Huntington YC in Huntington Harbor also has a pool.

As for Montauk, unless you are planning on sailing through the night I'd say 5 - 6 days which includes at least 1 day for staying put in case of uncooperative weather. It is about 110 nm with Port Jefferson being roughly the half way point.
Montauk (MTK) Harbor is mostly a commercial port although there is at least one marina in there. Another member (Bene505) keeps his boat, which also has 6' of draft, at the south end of Lake MTK (aka MTK Harbor).
