Re: Finger Lakes,NY to Key West,Fl.

Kingston is probably another day's work from where you are. If you head up the Rondout creek, there are a bunch of water front shops and restaurants. Its been so long since I've been there, I have no recollection of depths. I do recall there being town docks, again a long time ago.

You may know this. The word Kill is Dutch for body of water. They settled that region. You'll find several of them along the route: Catskill, Fishkill, Spakenkill, Peekskill, Greatkills. PETA once petitioned to have the town of Fishkill's name changed to Fishsave, suggesting the name promoted cruelty to animals. True story. They were laughed out of town.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
